RE:CREATE After a successful beginning last month, this new all age, taking-part-together service returns TODAY Sunday October 24th! You are invited to come and see. The service is suitable for all ages, for family groups, for folk on their own – for anyone and everyone! This week we are introducing PRAYER WRITING activity into the mix and David Brown is doing a presentation about his journey to using arts for the Kingdom. We meet in the Large Hall at 12 noon for fellowship lunch: Bring your packed lunch for this! The service is from 12.30pm – 1.30pm but with a flexi ending, meaning, you can leave if needs be earlier. See you there!
THE MESSAGE BUS: 27th October, will be the last time the Message Bus is with us. The bus will be parked at our church's car park and we are having a pizza night with the first session of Youth Alpha. On Wednesdays after that, Youth Alpha will become part of our Crossword program in the church premises. Any teenagers S1-S6 that you know of, even in your neighbourhood, send them over! The bus will be located near the church in the Tesco car park. Please pray for the team and for God to bring teens that are ready to engage with us and Jesus and for our own youth, for their growth and strengthening in faith. Thank you!
PRAYER MEETING: The monthly prayer meeting will take place next Sunday morning after the service. All welcome!
