Children’s Groups (3-11s) and the Crèche (0-2s) meet in during our 10am service.
Youth Group (11-18s) meets at 5.30pm-7.30pm on Sunday evenings.
Refreshments are served in the hall after the 10am service and at 5.30pm in the church before the evening service.
Prayer Ministry is available in church immediately after the 10am service.
Play Safe: The children love to play together after the 10am service, but please can parents be aware that you are responsible for your children during this time. If they are playing outside, please be mindful of trip hazards and the main road.
Every little helps for Sunday tea!
We would like to reduce the amount of paper cups we use on a Sunday evening before our 6pm service. Could we encourage those with reusable cups to bring them along for their drinks on Sunday evenings? Thank you
Church Weekend Away 2020: Book your places this month. This is for the whole church family and will be on the 10th-12th July at Oak Hall Manor, near Sevenoaks. Details and booking forms are available in church.
Church Survey: As we review our 2020 vision, could we ask every church member to fill out a survey form? It’s a few straightforward questions and takes about a minute to do. If every individual aged 11+ could fill out their own form please, and then there is an option for one parent to also include children under 11 on their form. Thanks!
Vacancies: Our staff team has been one employee down for the last year and so currently we are advertising for two paid positions in order to bring the team back up to full strength and to add an additional member as we build into the future. If you or someone you know may be interested in applying to be our Children & Families Pastor, or for a position to work alongside Luke with the youth, please ask Mark for the Job Descriptions (both positions have the option of full or part-time hours). Please do pray as we trust God to provide the right people at the right time.
The Funeral Service for Alan Lottes is on Tuesday 28 January at 1:30pm at the Surrey & Sussex Crematorium. Please be praying for Jean and her family at this sad time.
Baptism Service: We hope to hold an adult baptism service in church this term (date still to be confirmed). If you might be interested, please have a chat with Mark.
First Aid Training: We are pleased to be hosting the Red Cross First Aid Course on Saturday 8 February from 10am–2:30pm. Please speak to Diane Francis if you would like to book a place, and we would especially encourage those on the Youth and Children’s Team or the Welcome Team to consider if they are able to do this. Thanks.
Di Giles thanks everyone for the prayers, visits and flowers she has received whilst she has been unwell. All very much appreciated.
