What’s on this week…

SUNDAY //LIVE CHURCH SERVICE

This week’s service is different – zoom with us!

This Sunday we’re mixing it up. Via zoom we will host a live service for Pentecost. Joining in with the wider circuit this service will run twice to ensure you can join when is best for you - either 10am or 4pm So rather than following along on Facebook or via the email we send out each week, for this week you will join the service via logging into a zoom meeting. The details are below for you to get the date in your diary. And get prepared. We’re asking everyone to wear something bright and colourful. And to bring along anything party related - balloons, poppers, candles - anything! It is the Churches Birthday after all so we need to celebrate!! We hope you can join us!

Remember choose a time that suits you best - 10am or 4pm. See you then!

Never used zoom before? Don’t worry! It’s easy to join (honest!). Just click the link below on either a computer, tablet or phone. It will open a webpage or the zoom app if you have it (you don’t need it) and it will tell you what to do from there!

Zoom Topic: Pentecost Worship Time: Sunday 31st May at 10am or 4pm - the link will be open 10 minutes before the service starts

How tall can we go |

We’re still looking for people to grow a sunflower, and also encourage other people to plant a sunflower seed, and post pictures as they grow as we grow hope together.  When we are unlocked you could come, bring them to church and plant them along the back fence?

Hands together in prayer |



Our bunting went live this week and people have been sharing in our community engagement by adding their hand prayers to our Bunting.  It’s not too late to join in!

Resources to use are on site, plus hand sanitiser, but anyone who wants to do the activity at home is also free to do so.  We are inviting people to draw around their hand, cut it out, and then write the first name of someone they want to remember in prayer at this time, or something they are thankful for at this time.  Then we are inviting people to pin their hand onto the bunting, joining hands with the one in front.  It will look like “hands raised in prayer” – but it will also look like hands joined together in unity.  As that is part of the experience of Pentecost we thought it might be a way of connecting with our local community.  If
