Single Morning Service response cards

Thank you to all of you who completed a card.  We have had a good number of responses.  The questionnaire has highlighted that the majority of you prefer the angled chair layout as the standard for main services. The responses provided for the timing of the service have been fairly evenly proportioned with a slight preference to 10am, but there is an awareness that the later time is more manageable and accessible for families with young children and for those with additional physical challenges.  This will be considered by the PCC before a decision is made, along with the style of service as we celebrate our wide diversity.

Are you able to help get Revival Youth to Soul Survivor 

 We need help to get the equipment that will enable us to cater for the 27 people attending Soul Survivor with St John’s in Peterborough.  We require someone to tow the trailer to the East of England Showground in Peterborough on the morning of Saturday 17th August (having collected it from Just42 and brought it to the Old Vic for loading up on the Friday before) and we also require someone to come and collect the trailer on the morning of Thursday 22nd August from Peterborough to return it to Just42 after it has been unloaded at the Old Vic.  Petrol costs will be covered.  If you are able to help or would like more information please chat to Andy Williams or email
It would also be very much appreciated if a couple of people could give their time to clean down and dry out the marquee after Soul Survivor.  Again, please speak to Andy or email him.

Life Groups 

Life Groups are an important part of Church life; meeting together on a regular basis, usually in someone's home.  Being part of a life group enables you to build strong relationships to support and encourage each other through life and in your walk with God. It is also a place to delve deeper into God's word through studying the bible and praying together.

There are Life Groups available on different days of the week, during the day and also in the evening.  Our aim is to make life groups accessible to all members of the Church.

If you would like to be part of a Life group or would just like to know a bit more about it please contact Pat House via the Church Office.
