Please join us for our whole church prayer meeting on Wednesday 24 August at 8.00pm in the church. Do join us from 7.45pm to share a drink together. It is wonderful to see so many gather to pray each month, but the pattern has not solved the clash with PCC weeks and is confusing to many. Therefore, going forward our church prayer meetings will be on the first Wednesday evening of the month (starting Wednesday 7 September), 8.00-9.00pm in the church. Please do put them in your diary.
No café this Monday
Our drop-in cafe and language lessons won't be meeting this Monday 29th, as it's a Bank Holiday, and has now closed for now.

What's Your Question?
Heaven sounds like it’s going to be a really long church service; I’m not sure I want to go there forever! What does the Bible say about eternity?
Sometimes I get excited by the Gospel. At other times I am discouraged. Most of the time Jesus feels like a nice idea, but a long way off! What should I feel like as a Christian?
If God is both all-powerful and all-loving why does He allow suffering in the world?
We all have questions about the Christian faith. Thank you for the 40-50 questions submitted recently. Six have been selected and we consider them together over six weeks in the autumn, Wednesday nights 14th September to 26thOctober. A mixture of upfront teaching and small-group discussion. Food from 7.30pm. Start at 8.00pm, finish by 9.00pm. Please sign-up so we know numbers for food. (Free, but donation to cover food on the night).
