For those who enjoy singing
A choir of about fifteen members meets on most Thursdays at 7.30pm to prepare for the music in Sunday morning services and for some evening services, particularly in connection with the special seasons of Advent, Christmas, Passiontide and Easter. No particular qualifications are required other than a love of singing and a commitment to the worship of the Church.
Special times of prayer
IT’S GOOD TO TALK
Many Christians struggle with prayer; many Christians feel guilty about their own prayers. Yet prayer is an amazing privilege. In prayer we get to talk to the Creator of the Universe; we get to talk to God. Most important people in the world never talk to me or would not answer the phone if we called. The Prime Minister never talks to us, yet God does.
Prayer very simply is communication with God. In the words of an old B.T. advert, “it is good to talk.” We do not have to use clever language or old fashioned words; we just need to be real and be open to what God will say to us.
Within the church there are two special times of prayer.
We meet every week, on Sundays, at 8.45 or 9.30am for about 40 minutes, before Sunday worship.
We meet every second Monday at 7.30pm for about an hour.
These times are open to everyone, and any situation, personal or bigger, can be the focus for prayer.
