Parent and Toddlers Group
Every Wednesday 10am till 12 noon 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 they are welcome to come to the P & T group.
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.
Older children usually stay in the main meeting, but for younger ones there is a creche or Bible class with some lively activities according to their age.
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.
House groups – Bible study and prayer
On Wednesday evenings we are discussing the first letter of John.
On Thursday evenings we are looking at the gospel of John. In particular, we are seeing how the great signs done by Christ show us who he is.
Come to Coral's house in Stepney on Wednesday, or Musa and Ruth's in Ilford on Thursday. 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.
We also have a Bible study discussion open to everyone, on Thursday mornings at 11. For these (and the Saturday meetings), come to the church hall entrance on Maddams St.
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.
Weekend away? Saturday workshops?
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.
We have also been chatting over the idea of having “Church Days” with a light lunch on an occasional Saturday, where we can look at topics which don’t fit into a Sunday but which are worth thinking about. Some suggestions have been “How to stand up for yourself”, “Good cheap cookery”. “Handling money well”, “Temptations at work”. What do you think? Are there other practical matters you would like to explore?
