Holiday Sundays Children’s Activities

We plan a home group series in the
Autumn going through the Christian
creeds, particularly the Apostles Creed
and its biblical foundation. Leaders will receive Tim Chester’s Good Book Company booklet, ready for the meeting on Wednesday 6th September.
Sunday teaching for the summer holidays is a series from the Book of Proverbs: “Wise as serpents”. We live in turbulent times when practical wisdom is so valuable. Jesus taught wisdom. The Spirit gives wisdom. The Book of Proverbs tells us all about it.
We plan two Alpha Courses for the Autumn. Francis will run the New Alpha with Nicky Gumbel’s shortened talks in a Chaplaincy Alpha starting on 10th September. Christine and John will run the Alpha Express course with the Bear Grylls film input.

We are running a six week parenting
course on Tuesday evenings, starting on
12th September 8.00pm - 9.45pm.
The course is an opportunity for parents
to get together and talk about the realities of bringing up children. The sessions
explore the important role that parents
have in their child's life and looks at some
of the everyday challenges that we face,
as well as looking at valuable principles
that can be applied on a day to day
basis with children.
If you are interested in doing the course
or would like more information please see Sarah Williams.
Holiday Photo Challenge
Have you been in holiday? Did you take any photos?
In the service on 27th August we are

If you have a great photo of your holiday, without people in it, that shows where
you have been (without giving the
location away) please email it to email@example.com. We will have a go at guessing where they were taken
