Queen's Birthday Garden Party.

We will be holding a Garden Party and Barbeque lunch in the Parish Centre garden after the morning service on Sunday 12th June to celebrate the Queen's 90th Birthday. It will be a bring and share community event for us to invite friends and neighbours from the parish. Please note the date in your diaries.

Fellowship Groups meet in the homes of church members around the city - some weekly, some fortnightly - on either Tuesday or Wednesday evenings.  Each group decides its own programme, which may include Bible study, discussion topics, shared meals and prayer.  The groups aim to provide friendship and support in a Christian context and are a great way to get to know other church members.  Most groups are open to people of all ages; however, one group, Right Side, is specifically aimed at people in their 20s and 30s.  For further information about the groups, or if you are interested in joining a group, please either talk to Anne Winter after Sunday Worship or else contact her through the church office.

We keep a Community Emergency Food box which is now situated on the side tables by the Church Kitchen; suitable goods are always welcome.

The Archbishops of Canterbury and York are inviting churches to pray for the evangelisation of the nation during the week before Pentecost Sunday and have written to every priest in the C of E expressing their longing “to see a great wave of prayer across our land, throughout the Church of England and many other Churches” from 8th-15th May.

The week of prayer will culminate in ‘Beacon events’ around the country over Pentecost weekend, where people will pray for the renewal of the Holy Spirit and the confidence to share their faith.
