April 2022: Here you will find information for our Sunday morning services in the coming months. We very much look forward to welcoming you whether you be local or on holiday. We stopped livestreaming services at the end of August 2021 and, from September, the sermons are recorded and uploaded to our 'LISTEN' menu on this homepage.
As we emerge from the pandemic, we are reviewing the activities listed at the bottom of our homepage that we've historically done, and seeking to hear from God about what we should continue, what should stop and what new things could happen. For example, brand new ventures in recent months in the form of Family Church and Muddy Church we hope will become regular features. We now have multiple midweek groups where smaller numbers allow for deeper relationships and journeying together as Jesus Followers. Our Tuesday 'Explore' group is a great access point for those curious about faith and wanting to know more about God. Our embryonic missional communities in the form of The Gathering and Faith Talks have continued over the last two years and we'd love to grow them in an altogether free-er world.
What we do know is that church is not simply a Sunday congregation but a family that connects in many and various means throughout the week. Please use the contact form to get in touch with us if you'd like to know more. In all this, we continue to seek to be a missional church bringing the good news of Jesus to our communities in words and actions.
If you're visiting us on Sundays in the near future then coming up in the next few months...........
As a church, we're seeking to press into God and follow where He leads as we want to bring the Good News of Jesus to our communities. In order to do this, we need to hear Him well. So, over the next few months we will be considering 'Double Listening'. How does God speak to us through our context and therefore 'Who is My Neighbour?' We will be using different bible characters across both testaments to understand how God speaks in a multi sensory way. This image helps to give some idea that the listening and therefore the questioning comes from a place of wanting to hear God's voice:
