Last Sunday’s Address – Easter Sunday

Our Easter Sunday sermon came from Mk 16:1-8 – The Disciples’ weak response, and a strange Ending. Pieter’s notes are at the end of the notices.

Next Sunday’s Worship

We will conclude our journey through Mark’s Gospel as Craig Braisby speaks on the other ending – Mark

16:9-20. The service will include Communion. The words of one song are reproduced further down the notices.

Lent Bible Study

Sue and Craig conclude their series of bible studies for Lent on Monday evening at 8pm.

From next week the studies move on to the book “Hospitality – God’s call to Compassion”.

Reopening the church

With 12th April the current target for the next stage of Britain’s re-opening, we are expecting to reopen the church for socially distanced worship from 18th April. Arrangements will be as they were before we closed: please let us know you’re coming; facemasks; and no singing. The serviced will remain fully available on Zoom.  Full details next week after the final Deacons’ review on Tuesday.

Baptist Assembly

The Baptist Assembly for 2021 is being held online over the weekend 14th – 16th May. Attendance is open to all Baptists in the UK, who are asked to register on the BU website. Donations to cover the Bus costs are invited, but not required.

On Sunday 16th May (10:30 – 11:30), all Baptist Churches are invited to join nationally with the online worship. We will be participating in this and as soon as we have more details, we’ll work out how to make it available to everybody in the church over Zoom.

Thursday evenings

The good news is that there will now be an activity every Thursday evening at 7:30pm!  Alternate weeks it will be a prayer meeting, as on 8 April.

After Easter Hetty and Pieter will be offering five Thursday evenings of Bible Basics, again alternating with the prayer meetings. There is a handout for the first of the Bible Basics attached that will help you get the most out of these sessions! Contact Us for Details

All these evenings are open to all, and so they are an excellent opportunity to invite others, such as people who sleep on Sunday morning, those do not normally attend any church, and anyone interested in biblical teaching.  For this inviting of others, we rely on you!  Simply give them or contact us for the Zoom meeting details.
