Our new Sunday morning series starts on 13th Sept at 10:30 (as usual). ‘Defining moments with Jesus’ will walk us through key moments in people’s lives when they met with Jesus. All the moments were different, but all the people we will hear about went away changed in one way or another.

We will be starting our new Sunday evening series for Lent on 1st March (6:30pm). The course is titled ‘Another Story Must Begin’ and will be based around the film of Victor Hugo’s Les Misérables.
We will work through some of the themes and principal characters of this epic narrative in the following 5 weeks, finishing on Palm Sunday. The course explores the grace of God and our own fallen state and opportunity for redemption, and helps us to reassess what we can do with our lives and for those around us.
The 5 weekly sessions are:
- Fantine and Cosette
- The Bishop of Digne
- Jean Valjean
- Redemption and Salvation

It appears that summer is finally upon us, so I’m breaking out the sunflower picture again to announce our summer schedule. Unlike some churches we don’t shut everything down for the summer, but unlike others we don’t keep everything going. Actually, that’s probably like most churches but we like to sound different.
So, back to the point, here’s out summer schedule for 2012:
Sun: Morning service 10:30
No Childrens work, but there is a childrens message each week and anyone below secondary school age will be taken out during the adult message for refreshments and games, so they don’t get too bored.
Sun: No evening service for the moment – they’ll restart on 8th Sept.
Tues: House groups, see individual leaders for details.
Wed: Prayer meeting continues as usual.
Fri: Parent & Toddlers continues as usual (10:30)
Fri: JAM & The Edge are taking a break for the summer.
Sat: Momentum/CVM monthly mens breakfast 11th Aug & 8th Sept. Check back for details as we’ll likely be out & about somewhere.
Meeting times over Easter are as follows:
Good Friday (2nd Apr)
10:30 Service (approx 45 mins)
Neither Mums & Toddlers or JAM are running on Good Friday.
Easter Sunday (4th Apr)
10:30 Family service.
No evening service
Easter Mon (5th Apr)
No Discipleship Explored (the course finished last week).
Fri 9th & 16th Apr
Mums & Toddlers will be running as usual.
JAM is not on as it’s still the school holidays.
