Rhythms of Grace

We are meeting in St Michael’s Church on Friday 19th January from 7.45 (note new time!) for 8.00 pm finishing by 9.30 pm. This month we will be considering how we can let go of our worries and concerns using prayer and the Bible.

There is a brief introduction to the topic, followed by 45 minutes of time alone with God, then we have a chance to share anything that has come up, if we wish to, but there is no pressure to do so.

We end with prayer for issues of concern to us and say Compline or Night Prayer together. Material is provided but you are free to come along and use the space to take some time out with God for yourself, however you wish. Do come along and bring a friend.

Church on the Green – Pentecost Sunday

The week will end on Pentecost Sunday with Church on the Green. Join us at 11am for hymns stories songs and fun. Bring a picnic and stay around afterwards too. Everyone welcome.  For one week only, this will be in place of our 9am and 10.30am services.  This is an event for everyone in the community and if the weather’s bad we’ll move inside.


Still Digging

Our very own Derrick Phillips has published a new book

Still Digging: Scratching the surface and plumbing the depths of prayer,  validates a variety of ways of praying, so that everyone can feel confident to pray as they are.  

Having read Derricks book this week, Simon says ‘this is a great resource to help us be more effective pray-ers. Derrick has written it in a way that is accessible for those of us who normally “count ourselves out”. Buy it and discover how to pray more effectively.’
