St John's Sunday Service - 12th February 2023
Please join us on Sunday 12th February for our morning service at 10am in St John's Church. This week, there will be a full range of groups for children and young people, but everyone meets together in church for the first 10 minutes.
We are continuing with our series looking at the Old Testament book of Amos. This Sunday, Jon will be preaching on 'Stop Playing at Meetings' and the Bible passage is Amos 5:1-27. You can also read this in Traditional Chinese.
There is a small area of seating in church where masks must be worn and seating is distanced. Of course, you are welcome to wear a mask anywhere in the building. If you have COVID, please don't come to church.
We would love to welcome you in the building but, if you can't make it, the service will be available online via our livestream on our YouTube channel. The livestream will start around 9.55am. It's lovely to know who's joining us, so please say hello using YouTube chat.
Bakes, Brews and Chat
We have a cafe called 'Bakes, Brews and Chat', from 2-4pm every Wednesday afternoon.
We would love anyone from our local community, of any age, to join us for a cup of tea, some homemade cake and to enjoy good company.
Just drop into the Church Centre on School Lane. You're welcome to stay for a short time or for the whole two hours.
Listening to children read
Could you spare an hour a week to help out in our local schools with children learning to read? We currently have volunteers from our church going in to help at five of our local schools. Of these, four have asked for more readers. One school has asked for an extra 24 readers every week!
