Big Family Day Out 

We had a fantastic morning on Kingston Field where we were joined by lots of people for fun, worship, teaching, games, crafts, cream teas and more!  John Hardwick was our guest speaker, John shared his amazing circus skills, music, storytelling and puppetry gifts with us as he spoke about lives being transformed by Jesus.  We were able to reach out and bless our community through teaching, worship, prayer and ice cream (among other things)!  A huge thank you to all those who helped in lots of different roles, and to those who came and supported the event.  We’re already looking forward to next year!

Bring and Share Lunch - Summer Break 

Church Bring & Share lunches will be taking a summer break for the months of August/September.  Our first autumn lunch will be held after the morning service on Sunday 6th October.  A big thank-you to everyone who shares in this opportunity for food and fellowship within our Church Family.
 

Pigeon Holes 

Please remember to regularly check the pigeon holes in the Church foyer as you come into Church for any correspondence from the Church office.  At the moment there are several letters in them waiting to be collected,  there may be one for you!

Message from the Office 

Following feedback after the office move to upstairs in the Old Vicarage last year,  you will be pleased to hear we will be re-locating the main office back downstairs to room 3.  This will take effect from Monday 15 July. 

The office is open as usual between 9.30am – 1pm,  Monday to Friday and the entrance is via the Blue door on Vicarage Hill.  If you have problems navigating the steps then please ring the office bell at the entrance on the driveway instead and we will come to you.  

During the Summer we have a few dates the office will remain closed which are as follows: 
Friday 26 July – Friday 2 August
Monday 26 August - Friday 30 August

The answerphone will be manned during office closure and any urgent messages will be dealt with as soon as possible.

Thank you!

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.
