Compass, a new course on the basics of the Christian faith and how they have shaped Methodism, started on Wednesday 11 March and ran for 8 sessions.
Wherever you are on your journey of faith, it's always a good idea to check you are heading in the right direction - to check the Compass. This was a course for everyone, from the sceptic on the fringe, to those who had known Jesus all their lives. It was enjoyed and appreciated by the many people who attended.
We held a 'Pitstop Prayer Station' as part of the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity. It was aimed particularly at the hundreds of drivers who pass our door every morning and evening on their way to or from work.
There were prayers with bacon butties between 7am - 8.30am, and prayers with coffee and cake between 5pm - 6.30pm in the evening.
This wasn't any 'holy huddle'... it's hard to look beatific with ketchup or dadies source dripping down your chin...but it was somewhere to find some much needed space on the daily commute.
We were delighted to host the British Methodist Youth Choir recently, who gave a concert to a packed church. The majority of the music performed was written by the choir's Musical Director, Heidi Cottrell. The choir has produced two CDs, available from their website. You can also preview two of the songs on YouTube:
