This Sunday we continue in our Promises of God series and see how God gives us the amazing gift of eternal life from John 3:16.
As an eco-church we have already earned the Silver award from A Rocha A Rocha UK – Caring for God's Earth and as it's climate Sunday this week we will also be bringing you a couple of updates on how we can be involved in the issues of climate change at this time.
We look forward to welcoming you to our Sunday 9am and 10.30am services in church, as we continue our series on ‘Promises of God to live by’. There is no need to book and all the other changes can be found HERE.
You can also join us as usual every Sunday at 10.30am on our Livestream.
