Christmas Eve Carol Service – 5.00 pm
Our annual candle-lit carol service will be on Christmas Eve this year, Sunday 24 December at 5 pm. As in past years this will be a joint meeting with Bethel Baptist Church. The Bible readings and talks will be in English, but the songs include some in Portuguese and Kicongo languages. Afterwards we will be serving mince pies and other light refreshments.
Christmas Day – 11.00 am
On Christmas Day itself we will have a short meeting at 11 am, giving thanks again for our Saviour's birth.
Sundays – 10.30 am
Sunday mornings are our main time each week to gather around Christ, sing songs old and new, and pray together. Our sermons usually follow a series based on reading through a book of the Bible. At the end of the message we have an opportunity for questions and comment.
The first Sunday in each month is our family communion, when we celebrate the Lord's Supper as part of the main meeting.
On Sundays, come to the main entrance on Brock Place.
The Revelation for normal people
Yes, you do not have to be an obsessive nutjob to enjoy and gain from the book of Revelation. It was designed to be good for you and give you an idea of what is going on in a confused and dangerous world. Come to Coral's house in Stepney on Tuesday, or Musa and Ruth's in Ilford on Thursday, to begin receiving revelations. If you do not know the route, contact Erik or one of the hosts for directions.
We also have time for prayer in these meetings.
Conversations about Faith
There are also discussion meetings open to everyone on Wednesday evenings at 7 (not meeting 20 or 27 December; restarting 3 January 2018) and Thursday mornings at 11. For these (and the Saturday meetings), come to the church hall entrance on Maddams St.
Parent and Toddlers Group – Wednesday 10am till 12 noon
Every Wednesday in term time (including half-term holidays), we get out our large play equipment, toy cars and trikes, games and activities in a clean space to enjoy them. Please tell anyone with young children that the P & T group is up and running.
We WILL be open on Wednesday 20 December!
At 9 a.m. each Saturday several of us gather to pray. We cover a wide range of persons and situations, and this meeting is probably one of the most important of the week – an hour talking to God, and agreeing together on what we ask Him to do.
Saturday music practice
Every Saturday we practise music, singing, drumming and percussion, from 10.15am until about 11.30. This is when we choose our songs for Sunday together.
Some of us like the idea of having a church weekend away together. What would be the best ideas for a theme or activities?
People have been having a good think about what they would like us to include in such a trip. It is not too late to give us your opinions.
