The Forge – Christmas Party

Although it may be January and Christmas seems like an age ago, the Forge (our men’s ministry group) had to wait until now to have our Christmas meal as Mark our resident chief was busy. And it certainly was worth the wait. The all home cooked food (well in our onsite kitchen anyway) was delicious, […]

Teaching Program January – April 2020

Dear Friends What do you remember of your time in your mother’s womb? What were your expectations? Did you ever imagine that you would be born into a world of colour, beauty, mountains and oceans?

A Word From Geoff October 2019

A Word From Geoff – September 2019

Dear Friends A certain member of our church here at St.Bs worked for a number of years as Cabin Crew for British Airways. He served people in Business class and amongst some of the many guests that he served were The Rolling Stones and Nelson Mandela. You are right in thinking that these passengers were […]

Upcoming Teaching Program

Dear Friends The media are talking about The Great British Bakeoff and Strictly Come dancing, and the latest bakers and celebrities to face the caustic tongue of Paul Holly- wood and Craig Revel Horwood. That means it’s the beginning of Sept and Autumn is slowly creeping in on us. If you are anything like me […]

Looking For A Saviour – Marvel Film Nights

In today’s culture the church is constantly scratching its head thinking of ways in which it can communicate in new and fresh ways the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
