Sacred Space prayer and worship night

A worship filled and a prayerful space where we take time to honour God for his Worth-ship.  It is held on the third Saturday night of each month, where we take time to just be in God's presence, to worship Him and during the hour we bring before God prayer needs of our country, our community and specific church family needs.   Join us for an hour of special time in God's presence.    We have fellowship afterwards, over a cuppa.

Alpha

Alpha is a 12 week course that gives people a chance to explore what the Christian faith is all about, in a non-threatening and low key atmosphere. We meet once a week, typically 6.30pm, for dinner and then move on to viewing a DVD covering a specific topic. This is followed by question and discussion time where no question is too simple or too challenging. Please contact us if you are interested in joining in our next Alpha Course.

Prayer is our connection with God; how can we do anything unless we pray, for without Christ direction, leading, guiding, cover, and blessing, we labour in vain.

We meet every Monday, 7.30pm to pray for various prayer needs, events, ministries, and the moving of the Holy Spirit.

Small groups

Small groups are where precious relationships are grown and our faith becomes a reality. Our desire is that small groups will provide a place where people will belong and can share their strengths and weaknesses, to be real with one another, laugh together, grow in faith and where we can rally around and support each other and live out our Christian lives together as family. There are many small groups that meet at different times during the week.

Services are on at 10am every Sunday morning of the year and our youth service is on in the evenings at 6.45 - 9pm, during term time.
