Burgers and Bouncing

As part of our gatherings on Sunday 26 September we will grill some burgers (veggie option available) and do some bouncing (not at the same time).

Our Morning Gathering is at 11am (in church, on Facebook, in garden and in Family Centre) alongside our Family Gathering (in the hall) before we head out to the garden and carpark for food, chats and bouncing. There is no need to book in advance.

We would love you to join us.

Day of Prayer

Go before us, O Lord, in this and all our doings…

As we enter a new season we are setting a day aside to pray.

The church will be open from 7am and throughout the day there will scrolling prayers on the screens as well as prayer prompts in the garden and on Facebook.

We’ll be focussing our prayers on our parish in the morning. Asking God to recalibrate us for what is ahead.

In the afternoon, we will pray for our world.

Prayer Ministry will be available for anyone who wants prayer for themselves, their families or a situation from 10 to 11am and 7 to 8pm. This will all be confidential and you just need to turn up.

We will finish with a time of worship at 8pm followed by fireside chat and prayer.

 

Big Church Family Gathering

SUNDAY 20 JUNE
We want to create an opportunity for as many people as possible to gather before the summer kicks in.

Regulations dictate that this will have to be outside so it comes with the warning that it is weather dependant.

We’ll share more details about this next week but for now here are some of the plans…chip van…picnic…music…sunshine…bouncy castles…face painting…activities for all ages…an opportunity to see people and catch up.

Sounds good, doesn’t it? Keep the date free.

Prayer Garden

Everyone is welcome to use our Prayer Garden just beside the church carpark under the big trees.
Amazing mosaic stepping stones created by Sandi Thompson lead the way through the Prayer Garden. Each one inviting a pause for prayerful contemplation.
Meanwhile the acorns were ripening, and a small flock of tiny birds were calling from the tops of the tall oaks: goldcrests, long-tailed-tits, coal tits? Impossible to see!
