Epiphany Bible Study – Sundays at 9h45

Over the remaining weeks of the Epiphany season, a group will gather for weekly Bible study on Sunday mornings. We will look at the texts for worship this season, which particularly focus on discipleship and Jesus’s ministry of healing and crossing boundaries. We will begin next Sunday, 21 January at 9h45 and continue on following Sundays at that time. All are welcome to join. Contact Andy Willis with any questions.

 

Prayer Group at the Church Monday 22 January at 18h30

A group meets at the church bi-weekly to pray for needs of our community and around the world. We will meet in the sanctuary tomorrow from 18h30 to 19h30. All are welcome! For more information contact Kiki Lawal.

This Lent, our congregation will once again host Walking Together, an opportunity for those new to our community (and anyone else who wishes) to grow in faith. Over the five weeks of Lent we will gather for a weekly meal, conversation, prayer, and study. Whether you are new to the faith, new to our church, or simply wish to dig deeper into Christian life, you are welcome to participate. Please mark the signup sheet this morning or contact Andy Willis.
