Sadly our building is closed again until further notice - but we are still here and active and will be recording Sunday Services & Godly Play which will be available on our
New Year is a time when many people will look back at their year and then make New Year’s Resolutions of things that they hope will make this year better for them and their families. We also do this as a Church family and our individual pledges are tied into the cross. Would YOU like to take part?
We are a small friendly Baptist Church with a BIG heart where everyone is welcome!
Our Church family ranges from our youngest twin boys born in December 2019 to our oldest who is 99 and many of our family are very new to church life!
Our aim is to open the doors and love people and our guiding verse for 2021 is Isaiah 43: 18-19
Our Sunday services are on YouTube or via DVD as we have taken the decision NOT to reopen whilst we are in Tier 4 - this decision is being kept under constant review.
When we can meet, our services would start at 10.45am with the children going out of the service after the first 15 minutes for their own special time of Godly Play.
Refreshments are served after the service and there is plenty of time to get to know people.
Godly Play is the way that we share the Gospel message with our children. Sadly we have not been able to have an in person session since March 2020 - however Arnie produces a Godly Play story most weeks and all of these can be found on our YouTube Channel along with other specials by Duggy Dug Dug!
“In most religious education children are told who God is. In Godly Play children discover who God is.”
Please join us for our Sunday service, which this week will explore our new guiding verses for 2021 which are from the Prophet Isaiah 43: 18-19
We do hope you enjoy being with us.
Links to previous services and our Godly Play stories can be found on our YouTube Channel.
