WHILE OUR CHURCH BUILDING IS REPAIRED WE ARE MEETING EACH SUNDAY AT THE MINERAL & LAPIDARY CLUB 11O WALTHAM RD (NEXT TO WALTHAM SCHOOL) AT 10AM.
WE WOULD LOVE TO HAVE THE OPPORTUNITY TO WELCOME YOU.
Sunday 4th February 2018 10am
A very warm welcome to all who worship with us this morning. Please stay for morning tea. Many thanks to Rev Alan Webster for leading today’s worship.
Minister away….Dugald is on leave until Sunday 11th February.
During Lent 2018 there is an opportunity to gather with others to grow in our connection with God and one another. We will gather every week for 4 weeks (4 sessions of approx. 90 mins, beginning from Monday Feb19th) for tea/coffee and a time to converse and learn with a focus theme. Groups of up to 8 people will run on Monday evenings, Tuesday mornings, and Wednesday afternoons. (Some people find they can’t make every session). Our focus theme this year is Nurturing Spiritual Practices. We are going to have some fun experimenting with different ways of connecting with God and discerning God’s voice in our lives. Sign the sheet on the back table or send Dugald a message. You are encouraged to invite a friend.
