Please join us this Sunday for our annual BBQ lunch, which follows on from our normal ‘discover’ Sunday service.

‘discover’ starts from 11:30am with coffee and other drinks being served in the main hall, before the service itself begins at 11:45am.  It is suitable for all the family and will include some singing, a quiz and a short talk from the Bible.  It will finish at around 12:30pm and the BBQ will take place in the car park behind Parkside.

Once the food is out of the way, there will be the opportunity to play some games in the park, weather permitting, and you’re welcome to stay for as long as you like.

discover: Week 6 – 9 February 2014

Our sixth week of discover began with the singing of There is a hope and prayer.

Discover Week 6

Instead of a memory verse this week, we enjoyed a quiz which was based around anagrams of books of the Bible, some of which proved more challenging than others.

After the quiz, we had time for a couple of children’s choices, before they went out for their activities.

This was the final week of our Christianity Explored Course and Alan came up to read from Mark 10:13-27, ahead of David Angell coming up to speak on the subject of Grace: how can God accept us?

Below are tweets from David’s talk:

Last week’s memory verse

We began the fifth week of discover with the singing of Come and see and prayer.

Afterwards we looked at the memory verse from last week – which again proved a struggle for people to remember.

We sang some children’s choices and finished our time together by singing I do not know what lies ahead.

The reading for this week was from Mark 15:40 to 16:8 and afterwards Alan came up to speak on this week’s subject ‘Resurrection: Why can Jesus rise?‘.  Tweets from Alan’s talk are below:

Today’s Memory Verse

We started our fourth discover by singing All I once held dear and prayer.

Afterwards, it was time to learn our second memory verse, which was taken again from Psalms.

As before, the words were made to gradually disappear as the verse was repeated. Hopefully more will have remembered it than for the previous verse.

After some children’s choruses we sang Open our eyes, Lord before the children adjourned for their classes.Discover Week 4

For those who were left, Alan read the reading from Mark 15:22-39 before David came up to speak on the fourth of our six weeks of Christianity Explored.  His subject this week was The Cross: Why did Jesus die?

Discover Memory Verse - Week 2
Last week’s Memory Verse

Only a couple of people were able to recall the memory verse from last week, but those who had remembered it were given a chocolate coin.

We again had a few children’s choices before finishing by singing Faithful One.

After the children went out for their classes, Phil read from Mark 7:1-8 and 14-23 before Alan came up to speak.

Alan’s subject for the third week of the Christianity Explored course was ‘Sin: Why did Jesus come?

Below are some tweets from his talk.  Underneath them are both the presentation and the audio recording from this morning:
