24th Feb Joshua 6:1-27 And the walls came tumbling down

What a strange request: march around with an Ark for 7 days and then the walls will just fall over? There must have been plenty of Israelites who thought that the plan wouldn’t work. But the Israelites were faithful to God, and much to their surprise it worked, the walls fell.

Today’s thought-for-the-day is from David

All this year’s Lent Daily Thoughts

Feb 25 @ 10:30 – 12:00
Through Lent and into Easter day we are looking at the 7 “I am” sayings of Jesus from John’s Gospel. These help us to centre ourselves on Jesus identity as he saw himself in the approach to Easter and to celebrate being in union with Jesus on Easter Day.   Everyone is warmly welcome to our Sunday services. Our worship style could be described as ‘informal contemporary’, with elements of ‘traditional’ thrown in for good measure. We recognise the importance of getting to know each other and do this both during the ‘welcome’ and after services over tea and coffee. Prayer after the service There are times when people need […]

What is a Home group?
 A Home group is a small group of people from the Church who meet regularly, usually at someone’s home. These groups provide the opportunity to read and discuss the Bible together, to pray together and get to know one another. Why go to a Home group? There are 2 main reasons: (1) to study the bible and discuss issues that come from that, a small group environment is very helpful; (2) a small group provides an opportunity to meet and to get to know a more manageable number of people than you might meet at a Sunday service. That means there is a chance to […]
