UPCOMING SERVICES – PLEASE SEE THE CALENDAR UNDER ‘NOTICES AND CALENDAR’
On the 2nd Sundays of each month at 11.30am we will be alternating between:
Come and Praise
Next date: July 14th in church then August 11th (no activities for this month only)
This is an informal, non-communion service which lasts about 45 minutes, aimed predominantly at families with children, but suitable for all!
This is preceded by activities in Church House from 10.45am where the children are invited to come along and take part in a craft activity based on the theme of the service.
There are also the cakes and Fairtrade stalls available for you to purchase some tasty treats!
Sarah is always happy to hear from anyone who would like to take part, by dong a reading, leading prayers etc.
Next date: September 8th at Longford Park School
This is a chance for you to come along and join us in an even more informal way based, as the name suggests, in a café setting. This is for ALL ages, the young, the not-so-young and everyone in between. There will be music, chat and an activity of some description, all designed to give you the chance to explore your thoughts about God.
There will be good quality coffee, tea and fruit juices as well as muffins and doughnuts available for a small charge and we will aim to have alternatives for those with food intolerances.
Please arrive from 11.20am onwards, ready to start the service at 11.30am.
Cafe Church will last just under an hour.
Sunday Club meets on the 4th Sunday of each month (apart from December and August) during the 9.45am informal Communion service. We start in church and leave after the first hymn to go over to Church House for a story and linked activities, before returning to church in time for Holy Communion. The activities are aimed predominately at 3-10 year olds.
You are welcome to join us with your younger children
We would encourage older children, especially those preparing for Confirmation, to remain in church and take part in the service, which will use the all-age service format.
Pause for Prayer
Prayer is at the very heart of Christian life, supporting the lives of individuals, the church, the community and the world. It can take many forms, any of which can be appropriate at particular times. It can be corporate (as much of our prayer is during public acts of worship) or it can be private. It can use familiar, much-loved words, or our own personal attempts to put into words our deepest thoughts and concerns. It can be wordless, as we still our hearts and minds and come before God in silence, giving him the space to speak to us.
Pause for Prayer is a new initiative for our parish, as we meet together in the church at 12noon on the last Friday of the month for 30 minutes of prayer. We will generally focus on a single relevant topic and will offer the opportunity for some corporate prayer as well as periods of silence for our own personal prayer. We are fortunate to have several experienced people within our congregation who will lead these sessions.
We firmly believe that prayer can, and does, change the world for the better, so do please come along and help make a difference – everyone is most welcome. If you cannot actually be in the church at this time you might like to pause for a few moments wherever you are to remember those who are gathered together in prayer.
Pause for Prayer takes place at 12noon on the last Friday of every month.
