RISE: The Wonder Conference

The Wonder is just ONE weeks away! It's going to be a a great time of focusing on the wonder of God and the wonder of you, you don't want to miss it! Click here to get booked in today; Ticket deadline: Wed 10th May.

Pre-Service Drinks

It's great that we've been able to serve drinks again before the meeting, but one of the side-effects is that half of the church are in the cafe area when we're trying to start the meeting! From this Sunday, we'll serve drinks from 10 - 10:20am, to enable the drinks to be drunk and people to get into the auditorium for 10:30am, ready to worship.

Serving in 0-4s

Could you join the 0-4's team? Do you have a heart for our really little ones and their families? Can you pray for our new generation?
Can you serve 1 in 4 weeks? 
If so, please email Sam Pink, or speak to her or Natalie Harden.

Church Summer Camp

UPDATE: We have changed the payment plan, so when you sign up you just pay for food, camping is paid for on arrival (as it was last year). We'd love to know numbers, so please get signed up soon.

Last year's camp was a great time of connection and building community across the church family. We're looking forward to gathering again, without any agenda other than to be together and build friendship.
Tickets are available for camping as well as day visitors. Click here for more information and to book.
Fri 25th - Mon 28th Aug
