February News

This is a busy month here at The Ark with overseas trips and meetings taking place along with all the usual activities that take place daily.


Prayer Breakout

On Sunday 27th January we had our second 'Prayer Breakout' event. Focussing on children and pathfinders, finance, worship and house groups, people who attended prayed particularly for these four groups, praying for future increase as we, as a church seek 'To Reach Out For Lost People For Jesus.'

Overseas Trips

Monday 28th January Pastors Eric Parker and Nigel Bainbridge travelled out to Kolding in Denmark where the Apostolic European Committee meet at the International Apostolic Bible College. This is a 2 day meeting which focuses on co-operation between European Apostolic churches and mission collaboration outside of Europe.

Prayers are needed for certainty of God's guidance as new plans are made during the two days.


South Africa


Photos Taken During Last Year's Trip To South Africa


Pastor Eric accompanied by Pastor Stuart Wood will also be visiting South Africa for two weeks from the 14th February. The trip will include visits to Capetown and Durban to renew fellowship with leaders from all of our churches. 

There is a continuing challenge for us in the UK to maintain good relations over such a vast geographical area that is so far away from us! However connections are good and God is really moving in South Africa and the church is continuing to develop since receiving its autonomy.

Eric will be sending photos and information to us throughout his trip which will be posted on here and on Facebook.
