This is the name of the ladies’ bible study for the school calendar year 2016-2017! Our women will come together to address the theme of “One Anothering” from scripture and how God actually uses our relationships with one another to conform us into Christ’s likeness. Notes for the next study which is being held on Monday 24th October are on the table at the back. Ladies, please take a copy in preparation of the study.

Light Party Monday – 31st October 5pm-7pm

Would you like to bless the families in our community by helping at this event? There are many areas that you can serve in: Worship, baking, registration/ signing in and out, group leaders/ helpers, serving refreshments and running the kitchen.  We need a few bakers to bake some cakes and biscuits (or savoury snacks) to serve at the party.  We also need strong people to help move chairs after the evening service on Sunday 30th and then to put them back after the event at around 7.30pm on Monday 31st. Please let Rhiannon know if you can do this or if you need more information about the areas in which to serve.  Let’s shine God’s Light into our community on this dark night together!! The party is for primary school children and there are flyers at the back of church.
