Bible Study Course

Come and join us on to learn more about the book of 1 Peter. 

The aim of this course is to faithfully present Peter's encouragements and show how they apply to us today, with a focus on how living the brand new life we have received will grab the attention of those who don't yet know Jesus. 

Refreshments available. The evening starts at 7:30pm and finishes at 9:00pm. Everyone welcome.

Baptismal Service

There will be a Baptismal Service on Sunday 9th November. A very special event as we hear how knowing Jesus has transformed individual's lives. 

If you have not yet been baptised and would like to know more please speak to Eric or Pat and they would love to explain more to you.

Christmas Programme

The dates for our Christmas Events are now posted on our calendar. Christmas is a great opportunity to invite people to our church and share the love of Jesus. Cards will be available in November for you to invite your friends and family to these Christmas celebrations. 

We will also be having a New Year's Eve celebration, with a Ceilidh, magic show and food. This is a family event and is open to everyone, so please invite your friends to join us too. Tickets will be on sale from November. 

We heard in Henry's sermon about God's call for us to GO! Christmas is great time to answer that call as we go out to reach the unchurched. One team, in God's power, the possibilities are without limit.

Amazing Grace by Saltmine Theatre Company

Here on Saturday 27th September at 7:30pm Saltmine Theatre Company presents

John Newton - Amazing Grace

Press-ganged into the navy at nineteen, flogged for desertion and torn from the girl he loves, John Newton feels he has nothing to live for. Making his way into the harsh world of the eighteenth century transatlantic slave trade, he makes his living as an abusive trafficker of human flesh. He is a man beyond redemption, making enemies of all he meets, on his way to hell. Then one stormy night, with his ship going down, he faces certain death...and nothing is the same again. This is a powerfully moving story of slavery, freedom and the remarkable power of love and grace to transform a life.

 

Have you bought your tickets yet? £7 each or 4 for £25. An evening not to be missed!

Please see Vee in church or phone the church office for more info, 01304 225737
