Events (see also the weekly notice sheet):

‘Alpha’ – Stay Curious!
We are running Alpha from 19 January 2023 with the option of afternoon or evening sessions. See the Alpha page for more details.

House of Prayer Night – Wednesday 1 February, 7-8pm
‘.  .  . my house of worship will be known as a house of prayer for all people’ (Isaiah 56:7 Message version). An hour of prayer and worship as we come together as a ‘House of Prayer’ to pray for our church, our community and for God’s Kingdom to come.

Creative Art Project from 6 February to mid May, Monday evenings, 6-8.30pm
All are welcome; arrive at a time that works for you. The vision is that we all produce a piece of art, be it a painting or some craft, and then exhibit them in the church for a week in May (dates to be confirmed). Art supplies will be provided free but we are hoping to sell some of our creations to cover costs. The aim is to invite community groups, friends and family to come and join us in a celebration of creativity.

‘Man of Straw’ – Saturday 25 February 2023
A story in song and word about those who are marginalised in society today. It has been written by John Cunningham and he is supported by Steve Shorey. This is a free event but donations to the charity New Avenues (supporting local homeless people) are invited. Please book via the church office (221589).

Prayer and Practical support
We are aware that many people are still bearing pain at this time, be it the loss of a loved one, a job, or a feeling of isolation Please do feel free to contact the church office and we’ll get back to you to support you in life’s journey. Remember that the church building will continue to open for Private Prayer on Wednesday afternoons, 2-3pm, where you can pray quietly and light a candle.
