Summer2018

This summer our 10:30am and 6:30am services* will be a little different. Our 10:30am services will include our Streams (see below for details) and will focus on prayers of the bible. And keeping with our prayer theme, our 6:30pm services will include lots of opportunity to pray together (again, see below for details). We'd love to see you over the summer.

* our 9:00am service at St Eanswythe's will continue as usual but will follow the same teaching theme as the 10:30am service Theology Stream.

A printable version of the following information is available here.

Crèche
We won't have our usual crèche in Twinkles, but there will be a parent-supervised baby area in the church and a parent-supervised activity provided in the Twinkles room for 2-3’s. The Twinkles room has a video link so that parents can still follow the Church Stream.

6:30am services (29th July to 26th August)

Between 29th July and 26th August our evening service will focus on prayer and worship. During this time we won’t have a sermon prepared, but instead will have a time of worship and allow lots of time to pray together. So come along and join in. As usual for the evening service, refreshments will be available from 6:00pm.

Join us for our summer picnic (29th July)

Weather permitting, on 29th July we’re hoping to go to the park for a picnic together after the 10:30am service. We’ll check the weather and make a final decision on the day, but please plan to bring your picnic (and a Frisbee or two) and join us.
