Christianity Explored is an informal 7-week course for anyone who would like to investigate Christianity, see what the Bible really says or ask any questions that they have.
A new Christianity Explored course started last week but it's not too late to join; Tuesdays at 8pm in St John's Church Centre.
Looking at Mark's gospel, the course explores who Jesus is, why he came, and what it means to follow him.

Read the Bible in 2020
Do you want a meaningful New Year's resolution? Have you always wanted to read through the whole Bible but never got round to it? Will you resolve to find time to study a Bible passage and spend time praying every day?
Please do check the Reading the Bible section of this website. We have compiled a list of links to many resources, including free audio daily Bible readings apps for iPhones and iPads, Android smartphones and tablets along with other devices; including the Bible in One Year (from HTB), the Daily Audio Bible podcast and Read Scripture from the Bible Project, all of which take you through the whole Bible in a year.
The notice sheet also has daily readings alongside each day on the diary page to enable you to do the same. The readings are linked to a daily Bible Reading Plan that is available in various formats from the Reading the Bible page.
Finally, if you don't own a Bible to read, please ask a member of staff and we will make sure you get one.
The Fisherman's Tale
We are delighted to confirm that we will be hosting Peter and Julie Fraser, from Bible Encounter Trust, in June 2020, for their new story trail, 'The Fisherman's Tale'. As with their previous story trails, this will be a fully immersive experience for our local schools, telling the story of Peter the Disciple.
We will, of course, need a considerable volunteer work force for this event to run smoothly, so we would like to give you some dates for your diary now. Set-up will be on 13th, 14th, 15th & 16th June. Schools and other groups will be visiting in the daytime and evenings from Wednesday 17th until Friday 26th June. We will also be open to the public on Saturday 20th June. Take-down will be on the afternoon and evening of Friday 26th June, and during the day on Saturday 27th June.
Please keep a look out in the notices for more information about how you can help nearer the time. Thank you.
Church Holiday 27th - 29th March
Please can we encourage you to book for the Church Holiday, 27th - 29th March, at The Hayes Conference Centre in Swanwick? A weekend away with the church family is a great opportunity to deepen our relationships – both with the Lord and with one another.

If you have lost your booking form, there are some available in the Church Extension.
