Autumn Term Preaching Series
We will be starting our new preaching series based on Tim Chester’s book ‘You Can Change’ on 8 September. Please purchase the book so that you can read it in your own time, doing the reflections and exercises and work at it in your cluster or discipleship group.
 
Each month we will also look at a passage from Luke’s gospel and explore a question around money.

  • Cafe Church will continue on the 2ndand 4thSunday of the month- please use Café Church as an opportunity to invite friends to this informal and relational church gathering.
  • We will also start a once monthly ‘Going Deeper’ evening, this term exploring what the Bible has to say about good relationships. All are welcome, bring your bible and your notebook. 
  • On 29 September we are delighted to have the young people leading our evening service- please come and support them as they lead us in worship together. 
  • Worship will continue to be a part of every Sunday evening gathering
