At the Church Meeting approval was given for the Leadership Team to seek to appoint an Operations Manager for the church. As such, please see the following notice.

Applications for post of Operations Manager

Applications are now open for the above role.  For the job description, please contact the church office and it will be sent to you electronically.  Deadline for submission of applications : 7th February 2018.  Applicants will need to submit an expression of interest, by emailing the church office, outlining relevant experience and the attributes that they would bring to the role, on one side of A4.  A CV on its own will not be accepted, but may be included as a supporting document. This is a paid position (£15 per hour) and initially for 16 hours per week.  All applications will be acknowledged, but only short listed candidates will be interviewed.  We hope to appoint someone to be in post from 1st March 2018.

Midweek Service

The text for MWS on 7th February at 2pm is Mark 14:27-50 and 66-72. Eric Seager will be leading and preaching.  All welcome!

African Summer 2018

Make your mind up time!  You will have seen the information in the last couple of notice sheets about our 2018 trip to Tanzania to help with a construction project during the last two weeks in May.  If you missed it please contact Martin Sheringham who will be delighted to tell you more.  There has been enough interest so far to make this trip viable but we now need this interest to turn into commitment – today’s the deadline!!  We can then book flights and advise the Tanzanian team of numbers so they can plan a suitable package of work.  So if you intend to go, please let Martin know a.s.a.p.!

Baptism Services

On Sunday 18th February, we will be having baptisms at both the 9:15am and 11:15am services.  We look forward to welcoming the friends and families of George Partridge, Mike Woodberry and Emily Robinson.

Would you like help with daily Bible reading and prayer?

If you use apps on your phone, why not download and use something to help you follow Jesus? Read Scripture is an excellent aid to daily Bible reading, and Unreached of the Day enables you to pray daily for an unreached people group.   Alternatively, you can access this material through a computer: and

Highly recommended!

Bible Society also has daily reading apps which are very useful.  Visit

Toddler Group

We need more workers and a lead person for our Thursday morning Toddler Group.  Please step up to embrace this wonderful evangelistic opportunity in which to serve Christ. Talk to Kathy Larkman if you would like to know more about what this outreach entails.
