Simply journeying through Lent

Wed 26th Feb – Sat 17th April

The title for our teaching on Sundays for the rest of the year is ‘Simply Jesus’.

The plan is to ‘simply’ invite whoever is preaching or sharing to reflect with us on different aspects of Jesus’s life and ministry as we seek to get to know Christ, and as we seek for him to increasingly shape our lives and faith.

What better way to kick this off than to read through the gospel of Matthew together during Lent (and the run up to Easter). We have put together a reading plan using headings taken from Tom Wright’s book ‘Lent for Everyone – Matthew’.

So, as we read together, inviting the Holy Spirit to illuminate and reveal Jesus to us, let’s pray that we are transformed into his likeness and touched by his power.

 

A Bucketful of Songs

Barney Trevivian has been faithfully leading worship for well over thirty five years and has blessed us all with his guitar, vocals and enthusiasm.

On Saturday 22nd February Barney, joined by a host of musicians and singers, performed fourteen worship and gospel songs he’s written over the last forty-two years.

CD’s are available to purchase with the proceeds split between rescuing children off the streets of Nairobi (Tumaini Kwa Watoto) and YWAM (Youth With A Mission).

You can also find the Album “A Bucketful of Songs” on Spotify, iTunes (very soon), Google Play & Amazon Music.

It was, as expected, a great evening of fun, music and worship.

The sessions will be filled with games, activities, challenges, discussion and reflections.

Relate Right

7pm Thursdays
6th February – 19th March

A seven session course that will help you deal with some of the major offences and hurts experienced in relationships.

Relate Right will enhance our relationships, whether with friends, spouses, family or work colleagues. During these seven evenings we will tackle subjects such as trust, honour, independence, removing shame, creating good boundaries, living life openly and being vulnerable, as well as discovering how to deal with some of the major offences and hurts we can all experience in relationships.

There is no charge for Relate Right, just come along expectant.

Contact the Church office for more information

Alpha?

Starts Thursday 30th January
7:15pm in the House of Prayer

We believe that everyone should have the chance to explore the Christian faith, ask questions and share their point of view.

Alpha is ideal for people who are not Christians but have questions, people who are new to the Christian faith and those who need their faith encouraged.  Each session, presented on film, looks at a different question of faith and is designed to create conversation.

Alpha is FREE but places are limited so booking is essential.

2020 Vision

“My house will be called a house of prayer for all people”
Isaiah 56:7

At the beginning of this new year and a new decade, and what feels like a new season in the life of our church, we want to set the whole of January aside to pray and fast.  We will be building on the weekends of prayer we have had during 2019 and using this time to launch into the days ahead.

How you respond to the different elements of the month is entirely up to you.  I do believe that the impact of it for you / us / our community is dependent upon what we are willing to put into it.  My advice would be to allow your usual patterns and routines to be disturbed during the month – it will be worth it – you will see a change in your prayer life after the month has finished.
Matt
