This Year’s Advent Studies

  These last few years we have had a thought for the day throughout Advent. This year we are going with a variation in that rather than having a thought for the day we are going to live with the same passage and a series of questions each week. Every day, take a few mins to read the passage and engage with the questions. You will find that as you travel with it you will gain deeper insights than a cursory reading would give. If you like to do these things on your own, find a ni...

Teach Me To Pray course – starts 11th September

Whether you are a new Christian or a long time believer there will be ...
