June 2018 – Church Newsletter

Whether this is your first visit, or you feel like you are part of the furniture, we pray you find a fresh welcome as we gather for worship.

We meet each Sunday to bring our prayers, praise and worship, to explore God’s word and to join in fellowship with God’s family.

During June Jason will be leading our services helped by many from the fellowship week by week. Apart from the first Sunday where we are ‘All-in’, our youngsters are invited to join one of the ‘Powerbase’ series of groups after the first part of our service together. This month we continue our regular series of services exploring the parables of Jesus, but we also say a special welcome to Julia & Matt Heinink on the 17th who will be sharing more with us about being BMS partners.

After our service, there is always time for fellowship over a cup of tea or coffee, so please do take the opportunity to say hello and find out more about our life together as a fellowship.

 

Homegroups – sharing life together

Our homegroups are small midweek gatherings in people’s homes, where there is opportunity to explore issues about our beliefs and support each other as we live out our faith. There is a variety of formats, as unique as the people who attend. This month the various meetings are:

  • Linda Rockall’s group: 6th & 27th
  • Ted & Sherrie’s group: 6th & 20th
