News & events:

Bonfire night:


On a wet and drizzle filled Saturday 2nd November we held our final special 90th Anniversary celebration- our outreach "Bonfire night evening" which included a guy making competition, food and a bonfire with sparklers and glow sticks (in spite of the damp weather). Although not a fire works evening it was well attended giving us an opportunity to come together for a time of fellowship, chatting a

and fun! We pray that events such as this help to build our relationships with our neighbourhood enabling the gospel message to be shared and proclaimed.



Bring and take afternoon:


On Saturday 12th October 2019 we held an outreach "Bring and take" afternoon which replaced our planned film night. This event was our version of a boot sale whereby people brought unwanted things for other people to simply take away.... for free! Our hope is that this event showed a loving and giving side of our fellowship in a very practical way and that this in turn has helped build our relationships with our neighbourhood.



Teddy Bears Picnic:

If you go down in the woods today, You're sure of a big surprise, If you go down in the woods today, You'd better go in disguise!                                How many of you over the age of ???? can remember this song and its imaginary activity? Yes its all about a Teddy Bears picnic.                                      As our church 90th  anniversary we turned back the clock to yesteryear when after our morning service this Sunday, our fellowship (accompanied by their teddy bears) had planned to go to Valence park (not the woods) to enjoy a Teddy Bears picnic of our own with games. Unfortunately the unpredictable weather and damp grass hampered our plans. Instead, we all picnicked in the church hall. Among our guest diners were Trevor a clart and blue West Ham fan bear, several Winnie The Poo bears and a very cuddly (and somewhat shy) sheep. In spite of the lunch not happening as planned, we did all enjoy fellowship together.

Anniversary weekend:


On the weekend of 11th & 12th May 2019, we celebrated 90 years of witness and service to God in this, our local community. To mark this exciting mile stone on Saturday, we celebrated with a fellowship meal inviting old friends and members to join us. On Sunday, our anniversary service was led by Rev. Colin Phillips followed by a hearty buffet- again inviting old friends and members to join us. The weekend rekindled old friendships and encouragement as we look forward to how God wants to lead and use us in the future.

We also continue with our special anniversary events throughout the year in to celebrate this special anniversary year. Some events are mainly for the regular fellowship whilst others (in addition to our regular bridge-building events) are particularly also for the wider local community. 



Pancake evening:


On Saturday 2nd March we held our annual lent evening of homemade traditional pancakes with a mouth-watering selection of toppings refreshments and table top games & puzzles all enjoyed by fellowship and friends. Many dozens of pancakes were cooked, flipped and eaten throughout the evening. Our prayer is that as a bridge- building event, the evening will have had an impact on those present.



Fellowship New Year Social:


In January, we held a Fellowship New Year Social which included of mixture of Games, quizzes, music and (of course) lots of tasty food. The evening was well attended, "helthily competitive" and enjoyed by all. We pray that this fellowship event will help build deeper relationships within the felllowship.
