EVENTS INVOLVING LEARNING
Our church is more than just Sunday prayers. We have different events and groups that learn throughout the year.
Every term for one whole week, the children of St John’s Church of England Primary School come and take over the church for their Sanctuary Week.
It’s an opportunity for them to recognise the power and importance of ‘place’ - they make the ‘pilgrimage’ to the church - and to recognise that it is a unique and space set aside for worship, peace, prayer and sanctuary.
The children engage with interactive boards and displays to share some of their stories and reflections in the safe surrounding of our church.
The week culminates with a Sunday Family Service in which the children share with their families and our congregation all that they have reflected on and experienced… in so doing they teach and enrich all our lives.
The Alpha Course is created to outline the core principles of the Christian faith that all denominations agree on. We believe that what unites us is infinitely greater than what divides us. The Alpha Course is an effective form of evangelism when run by and through the local church. By focusing on the fundamentals of Christianity, it opens the door for Alpha to be used in almost any context so that everyone has the opportunity to engage is discussions and be transformed by the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
We are setting up house groups across the parish where we can develop friendships and study the Bible and pray in more depth.
