Building the church of the future

June 6, 2017


Our Monday evening group may be small, but it is a lot of fun! Yesterday we were looking at the work of the Holy Spirit. Although we can’t see the Holy Spirit, we can see what He does. Rather like the magnets in this construction kit, for example.

So the challenge I set the group was to use the kit to build a church and this is what they came up with after three quarters of an hour:


It may be small, but it’s perfectly formed, with vestry and children’s room – a magnetic church which hopefully will attract many. Next week we may even have a vicar to go with it! This all led very naturally into the theme of the week, which was Jesus’ teaching on being salt and light in the world (Matt 5:13-16)

We are really hoping and growing that the group will grow. So…

June 19th, 7.30pm at St Michael’s we are having a party. It will feature cake, and praise, and maybe a film. All the young and young at heart are warmly invited. It promises to be a very special occasion.

WATT … when?

April 24, 2017

Women Around the Table is our monthly meeting for women of all ages, to get together to talk and pray, drink tea and eat cake!

We usually meet on the last Sunday of the month, but as there is a shared lunch after church on Sunday April 30th, we will instead meet on Sunday, May 7th, 5pm at the Vicarage when we’ll be preparing for our week of prayer, Thy Kingdom Come.

Grow the Word – Mondays

April 17, 2017


Our Monday small group is meeting today after all … see you at St Michael’s at 7:30pm 🙂

Grow the Word is a small group for enquirers, beginners and the young at heart – we spend time with the Bible, exploring, explaining and questioning together. All welcome 🙂

Reminder – The Big Big Picture

April 5, 2017

Our monthly gathering of all the small groups is tonight, Wednesday, 7:30pm at St Michael’s when we will be looking at the life of Abraham.

Know the Word

January 30, 2017

Our small group Know the Word,  will be meeting at St Michael’s throughout February, on Thursdays at 7:30pm, rather than at the Vicarage. Please pass the word to others, and invite folk to join us … for good fellowship, prayer support and to encounter the living God as we read the Bible together.


Small groups

Our small groups resume this week – and are all meeting at St Michael’s:

Grow the Word – Monday @ 7:30pm

Live the Word – Wednesday @ 7:30pm

GIFT group – Thursday @ 2pm

Know the Word – Thursday @ 7:30pm

For various reasons, the two groups that meet in people’s homes will be mobile for the next few weeks … please keep an eye on the website and noticesheet, and pass on details of the venues as they are arranged. Normal service will resume as soon as possible!


The Big Big Picture

January 4, 2017

Our first church meeting of 2017 is our monthly central bible group, The Big Big Picture, on Thursday January 5th, 7:30pm at St Michael’s, where we will be looking at Men, Women and God. Everyone welcome – the aim of this meeting is to provide an overview of the bible’s story, for those of all ages and experience.

For those of you who were at the Big Big Picture in December … remember your bible books! We’ll be adding some more this month 🙂

Small groups resume next week.
