Monthly prayer meeting
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.
Just a reminder that the prayer meeting will move to the first Wednesday of the month from September. So our next one will be just two weeks later on Wednesday 7 September.
We've got two more Mondays in August when we are running a drop-in café in the Tiger lounge. We are open from 9.00am until 12noon. It's a simple opportunity to pop out and have a chat with others. Why not invite a friend who might otherwise be on their own? If you've got little ones, there will be a small area for them to have a play too.
During this time (9.30–10.30am) we'll also be running English language lessons for our Ukrainian friends in some other rooms in the Tiger. Do come along for a cuppa, catch up and a chance to meet new people, both from here and Ukraine.

This autumn you are invited to explore questions about the Christian faith that you always wanted to ask, but perhaps never felt able to. We'll select one question to explore together each week over a meal. If you have a question, please do add it to the mix.
