EVENTS INVOLVING LEARNING
Our church is more than just Sunday prayers. We have different events and groups that learn throughout the year.
Alpha is aimed at anybody who wants to find out more about faith and Christianity and who want to ask some of the big questions of life. Each week we start with a meal together and then watch a film or listen to a talk and then in small groups discuss what we’ve learnt and most importantly ask questions. No question is too big or too small. You learn a lot on Alpha but it’s also great fun and our participants last year gave some lovely feedback on how much they had enjoyed it and delighted that a number of people who came to alpha went on to be confirmed into the family of the church.
And if you want to find out more please contact Revd Garry or Rev Stroma or Rev Lisa and we’d be delighted to tell you a little bit more.
CONFIRMATION GROUP 2022
Here is a picture of our confirmation group.
I would love to share my NEW BLOG site with you all and I am really hoping that its long-awaited launch will mean that people will enjoy it all the more.
I also hope it inspires me to write more frequently again now I have my own space to share.
If you would like to take a look, please follow the link below. It has been a long time in the making, and I am very excited about it.
We are setting up house groups across the parish where we can develop friendships and study the Bible and pray in more depth.
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.
