An open invitation…
Hi and welcome to our website. This opening paragraph is an invitation for you to come and join us in worship this weekend. We have a lot going on in our churches and you can find out more about what we do here on our website; but at the heart of who we are is our worship of the living God.
On Friday this week, at St Peter’s Church, 7pm there will be a special service of Prayer and Remembrance to mark Baby Loss Awareness Week. Anyone who has been affected by the loss of a baby either before or after birth is welcome to join us for a short reflective service which will include the opportunity to light a candle in remembrance. Coming together in this way can help us to realise that we are not alone on this painful journey and it is our hope that in the sharing of one another’s pain we find some measure of healing too.
On Saturday 14 October in the orchard behind Christ Church, we gather for our monthly Muddy Church. This outdoor act of worship will see us explore nature, sing together at the fire pit and maybe even cook something to eat. If you’ve never been before, head to the back of Christ Church just before 4pm and follow the noise and the smell of smoke.
On Sunday 15 October we worship in our Churches. At Christ Church, 11am we have a service of Holy Communion with prayers for healing being offered. Then at St Peter’s Church, 6pm we have a service of Evening Prayer (Evensong). Both of these services will be followed by free refreshments so we hope you will be able to stay and join us for tea/coffee and chat.
