Life's Better Together
Life Groups this Term ...
A friend of mine has the motto, “Keep looking up”. Whenever hard times come and it’s tempting to lose hope, these three words remind him to stop and reflect on the wonderful reality that however things may seem, the Lord Almighty reigns, he is seated on the throne, and nothing is beyond his control or understanding. This is a truth we need to remind ourselves of and cling to, particularly in this world full of tumult, when we find the chaos and complexity of life catches us off guard.
Through learning together in our Life Groups we‘ll have our perspective restored and be encouraged to “keep looking up”, reminding ourselves of the God we worship – the LORD Almighty who created the heavens and earth in all their glory, who commands angel armies, but also comes close to us as shepherd, healer and friend – the God we can know. Through our time together, may we come into a closer relationship with our God.

Disciple is an extraordinary journey to discover who you are in Christ, to take hold of the freedom He has won for you, and to walk in your God-given mandate. Designed especially for 20s and 30s, but accessible and relevant to all, this 10-session interactive multimedia discipleship course will help you make your life count and discover life, freedom and purpose.
Each session is designed to last around 90 mins, and kicks off with a ‘starter film’ to get you talking. There are then three key teaching sessions run from the DVD, with chat times in between. Each session finishes with an opportunity to reflect and apply the teaching to your own life story.
(15th and 29th January, 5th and 26th February, 12th and 26th March, 9th, 16th and 30th April, 14th May).
Leader: Andy March // Venue: Church meeting room
Come for a knit and a natter over tea/coffee and cake. It’s more of a social time where we talk about everything and exchange ideas. Most of the knitting, sewing etc. is done at home, as we have found we make less mistakes and can concentrate more. We’ve made cushions, matinee jackets, children’s jumpers, hats, scarves, peg bags, aprons, Christmas stockings and toys to name just a few. We sell the items we make to raise money for the church and to-date we’ve raised approx. £400.
We welcome anyone, male/female, old/young, beginners/experienced. Church goers and non-church goers, so if you have a friend who does not attend church, it does not matter, bring them along.

Prayer Life Group
We long to live out the words on our foundation stone: “this will be a house of prayer for all nations”. Come and join us in the church meeting room as we praise God and pray for each other, the church, community and world. Stay for ten minutes, half an hour, as long as suits you.
