Week of Prayer and Fasting

We are having a week of prayer and fasting from Monday March 27th until Sunday April 2nd. We suggest giving up breakfast and lunch each day and using the time to come before God in prayer. A list of suggested areas for prayer each day will be available nearer the time. Not everyone will be called or be able to fast in this way but we would encourage everyone to set aside time each day that week to come before God in prayer. For those who have fasted, there will be an opportunity to share a simple meal at 3.00pm on Sunday April 2nd. (Please sign-up on the sheet at the back of the church for catering purposes.) This will be followed by our monthly prayer meeting at 5.00pm (not the usual 6.00pm) which is open to everyone as usual.

There are leaflets on fasting at the back prepared by Dan Ovens which you may find useful. Please take one if you are interested.

Superhero Holiday Bible Club

18th April – 21st April, 10am- 12.30pm

This is for primary school aged children. This year we will be looking at some Bible heroes as we gather together for our fun-filled holiday club. As always this can’t be done without the support of our fantastic church family.  If you would like to serve God in reaching out to the children in our community then there are many areas that you can serve: Worship, leading and helping small groups, catering, welcome, registration, kitchen help, serving refreshments, sound desk, projector, set up and set down.  If you would like to know more about the holiday club including how to serve, please speak to Rhiannon, who will be only too willing to talk things through with you.  Please start praying for this amazing opportunity to share God with the next generation.

Open Meeting

There will be another open meeting for the 9.15am congregation on 9th April at 4.30pm.

Uganda Youth Fundraiser

Several young people are going on the mission trip to Uganda in the summer and are holding a fundraising event. This will take place on Saturday 22nd April and will include coffee and cake and an auction of promises. Time to be confirmed.

We have decided to jointly celebrate their birthdays by having a tea with cakes/sandwiches etc. before we commence the ACM on 10th April, at 7pm.
