    • Thinking about joining a tech rota but want to know more first;
    • Wanting some basic knowledge like how to switch on….

      …then please pop in and we’ll be there to help and inform you.

    Church meeting and elections

    Please mark Monday 29th April in your diary as the date of the next church meeting which will be held at Priory Street at 8pm. At that meeting we will, God willing, be voting on the nominations for the roles of Treasurer and Church Secretary (both Trustee roles). Nomination forms will be available at both services this Sunday – please prayerfully consider who you might nominate for these positions (you will need to seek their consent to be nominated) and submit your nomination via the church office before Sunday 28th April. Please note that only full church members can make a nomination and only full church members can be nominated.

    Introducing NESTON YOUTH HUB!

    In partnership with St Philip & St James parish church, we are excited to announce that we will be launching this new youth initiative on Thursday 25th April and fortnightly thereafter. It will run from 7.00-8.30pm in the parish church. If you have, or know of, children in the Neston area (aged 9-13) then please invite them and help us spread the word! And please pray for the youth team as they seek to build bridges and reach young people with the Good News of Jesus.

    Loft clear-out pt.2 – 20th April

    Huge thanks to those who came last Saturday to help clear out the loft – we made good progress, fuelled by bacon & sausage butties! But there is still work to do so we’ve scheduled part 2 of the clear-out for Saturday 20th April from 9am. If you can spare a couple of hours to help move and sort stuff, please let Jonny or Hollie know. Thanks!

    Men’s Ministry: dates for your diary

    Brothers, please join us on Tuesday 23rd April, 7.30pm at Priory Street for our monthly men’s evening when we will be hearing from Eddie Larkman. He will be sharing on, among other things, the subject of suffering, loss and bereavement.

    Please also note 28th May in your diaries when our guest speaker Barry Funnell will be sharing with us how God used a student prank gone badly wrong to radically change the course of his life, and how being wheelchair-bound doesn’t stop him from travelling the world with Bible translation ministry The Word For the World.

    Raising Confident Kids in a Confusing World – Tues 21st May at Emmanuel Church, Chippenham

    We all want our children to be confident of who they are and able to make good decisions for themselves, but they are hearing conflicting messages. And too often, Christian parents feel nervous and intimidated talking to their children on the subjects of bodies, gender, sexuality and their sense of self. This evening is to inspire parents and carers that they are God’s Plan A for showing their children the Bible’s better answers on these topics. The event is being organised by Faith in Kids, and Ed Drew, Ministry Director, will serve up an evening of Biblical truth and practical wisdom, with real-life stories and a generous sprinkling of humour. It’s perfect for parents at every stage of family life, from birth through to the teenage years, as well as for grandparents, leaders and anyone else who wants to be part of the wonderful challenge of raising children to lead flourishing lives for Christ. The evening will run from 7.45pm-8.30pm. You can register to attend here.

    Thanksgiving service for Joseph Glasgow

    Many of you will remember Joseph, who used to attend our midweek service and Souper Friday cafe. He passed away recently and a private funeral was held in Bath. A service to celebrate his life will be held on Friday 19th April at midday at St Aldhelm’s Church. All who knew Joseph are warmly invited to attend.
