We are a fellowship of committed Christians who want to share our faith with other people. We'd love to see you at any of our activities - take a look below to find out what we're up to this month. You can listen to recent services. Or, if you'd like to have a chat with someone or would like more information, get in touch with us via the Contact Us page.

Diary

We run the following weekly services and meetings:
  • Breaking of Bread 10:00am - 11:00am on Sundays
    At the Last Supper, just before He was crucified, Jesus asked His followers to share bread and wine, representing His body and blood, in memory of Him in His death. At the 'breaking of bread', or 'communion', committed Christians obey Jesus's request and join together to worship Him.
  • Afternoon Service 4:30pm - 5:15pm on Sundays
    A service of hymns/songs, prayers and a talk based on a Bible theme or passage lasts about three quarters of an hour and is followed by a cup of tea and a more informal time of fellowship. You can listen to recordings of previous services here.
  • Bible Study (House Group) and Prayer Meeting 7:00pm - 8:30pm on Wednesdays
    We discuss a passage from the Bible and think about how God is speaking to us through it. We follow our discussion with a short time of prayer together. Note that this month we are meeting on Tuesday 6th February instead of Wednesday 7th, and there is no Bible Study in the week beginning 11th February.

Bible Study

We’ve almost finished the miracles recorded in John’s Gospel, having spent three sessions looking at the most spectacular of these ‘signs’, the raising from death of Jesus’s friend Lazarus four days after his death and burial.  It was a powerful demonstration of the truth of Jesus’s claim to be the resurrection and the life.  For many, it was evidence that Jesus was the Son of God.   For the Pharisees, it provoked a furious reaction and they became even more determined to get rid of someone they saw as a threat to their power and position.

We’re thinking of starting Paul’s letter to the Romans after we’ve finished our studies in John.

Thought for the Month

Kindness

Did you know that there’s a ‘Random Acts of Kindness Week’ and it’s in the middle of this month?  On the internet, you’ll find hundreds of ideas (should you need them) for acts of kindness you can do for family members, work colleagues, neighbours and strangers -  from smiling at someone who looks sad, to taking someone else’s turn with the chores, or organising a party to get to know your neighbours.  They include kindnesses that can be done anonymously, with no opportunity for reciprocation, or expressions of gratitude and appreciation.

The Gospels show us that the life of Jesus here on earth was one of unfailing kindness, as he healed the sick, sympathised with the bereaved, befriended the lonely, and demonstrated to everyone He met the perfect and unconditional kindness of God.  So kindness should be a normal feature of a Christian’s life – evidence of the reality of the Holy Spirit within us, as He works to make us more like Christ our Saviour, and produces the ‘fruit of the Spirit’ in our lives (Galatians 5:22).

God showers His acts of kindness on us, whether or not we realise they come from Him, and whether or not we are grateful for them.  As Jesus said, God sends the blessing of sunshine on everyone, righteous and unrighteous, and He is ‘kind to the ungrateful and wicked’ (Luke 6:35).  Paul told the pagans of Lystra about ‘the living God’, who ‘has shown kindness by giving you rain from heaven and crops in their seasons’ (Acts 14:17), although they knew nothing about Him.  And God’s supreme act of grace to the whole human race was ‘expressed in His kindness to us in Christ Jesus’ (Ephesians 2:7), who died to give us life.
We can’t reciprocate such amazing kindness, of course, but we can be grateful to Him and show our gratitude in our own acts of kindness towards others.
