Children’s Prayer day for the Nation.
Sunday 21st March
We’d love you to join us for a Children’s Day Of Prayer For The Nations. Actually it’s not just for children, we’d love families, children’s groups or church gatherings to join in too.
Resources and Videos available at the Children Changing Nations site.
We intend to live stream some worship, teaching and prayer via Facebook live from 10am every Sunday morning. This approach will allow you to interact at appropriate times, such as when we pray.

May the God who gives endurance and encouragement give you the same attitude of mind toward each other that Christ Jesus had, so that with one mind and one voice you may glorify the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. (Romans 15:3-6)
Parenting for Faith Course
Tuesday 2nd March @ 8pm for 8 weekly sessions.
Want to help the kids you love find God in everyday life?
The free Parenting for faith course is for you! It’s not just mums and dads who long for children and teens to know God for themselves. Whether you’re a parent, carer, grandparent, family member, friend or church worker or leader, you can help the children in your life develop a vibrant and connected relationship with God – whatever their age!
I’m really exciting to let you know that we are starting a free zoom Parenting for Faith course on Tuesday 2nd March at 8pm. Over recent years I have heard amazing things about this course. Rachel Turner who has spoken at various So What? events and also at our church leads this course, she is always inspirational and very down to earth. It feels like she understands all that you are going through as someone who desire for children to know and walk with Jesus.

All are welcome! Please contact the Church office or Lynda to register.
“What about you?” Jesus asked,
“Who do you say I am?”
At this time, more than ever in history, we are surrounded by other people’s words, opinions, ideas, advice etc. With all this available to us at the click of a button it would be easy to find ourselves answering the question that Jesus asked his disciples one day, ‘who do people say I am?’, the way his disciples did, by telling Jesus what they had heard.
Jesus immediately asks what was for the disciples a far more important question in that moment – ‘What about you?’ Jesus asks, ‘who do you say I am?’ It seems that in this moment Jesus wasn’t interested in what others may say about him – he wanted to know what his disciples thought, because that was what would make the difference for them, particularly with the road that lay ahead of them, and the part that they would have in his ongoing mission.
As good and as helpful as other people’s opinions about Jesus can be, Jesus wants to know what you think and believe about him – because this is what makes all the difference in our lives. So in the coming weeks, as we journey towards Resurrection Sunday, we are going to follow the life of Jesus through the Gospels, from his birth to his ascension (and beyond). As you read, do so with the question that Jesus asked his disciples that day prayerfully in mind – ‘What about you?’, Jesus asked ‘who do you say I am?’
Take your time: Pause, pray and meditate on the answer to the question in the passage …. Don’t rush on.
Write it down: Spend a few moments journaling what comes to you as you read the passage and answer the question.
Chew it over: Discuss it with others, use the WhatsApp group, join in Word on Wednesday or give someone a call.
Word on a Wednesday:
Each week we record a longer, more in depth talk which follows the reading programme. These are available from the church’s YouTube channel
We gather on Zoom Wednesday’s at 7.30pm to consider the related questions and pray together.

We encourage you to arrange your own Bible study groups throughout the week to discuss these videos.
Please contact the Church office for details of how to connect to our Zoom gatherings.
