Summer Sundays 2014

Explore the Bible with us in creative ways this summer and experience God afresh. Suitable for all ages.

This summer the 10:30 worship will be taking a break from the usual format.

We will all start together as usual, and then, instead of just young church going out, there will be an opportunity for everyone to explore the Bible passage in different ways. Everyone will be able to choose from creative, active, contemplative and discussion based alternatives or engaging with a sermon. We’ll all join together again at the end of the service.

Why not prepare by reading the bible passage before you come?

  • 27th June – Matt 13:31-33, 44-52 – Mustard seed, yeast, treasure, fine pearls
  • 3rd Aug – Matt 14:13-21 – Feeding of 5,000
  • 10th Aug – Matt 14:22-33 – Walking on water
  • 17th Aug – Matt 15: (10-20), 21-28 – Great is your faith
  • 24th Aug – Matt 16:13-20 – Who do you say I am?

Alice in Wigginton – Pantomime 2014

Flying Duck’s Theatre present their 2014 pantomime – Alice in Wonderland Wigginton.

One moment Alice is enjoying a lovely sleep, the next she’s off down a rabbit hole with a couple of white rabbits.

With the help of a crazy cast of characters, a few cups of tea and script that looks suspiciously like last year’s, Alice restores peace and harmony to the land of Wigginton.  All the usually singing, dancing and falling over.

“Laugh your head off – or else!” – Queen of Hearts.
“What’s all this about a pantomime then!” – Tweedle Dum

Get your tickets before they someone makes them all disappear – forever!

Thank you – 600 children have received a gift of love this Christmas

A huge thank you to everyone who donated a shoe box this year – 600 were sent to the warehouse in November ready to be delivered to Romania or Kyrgyzstan. Those of you who paid your donation for delivery on-line should be receiving an email at the end of January to say where your box went.

This means 600 children who would not have received a gift this Christmas have something to treasure and know someone thousands of miles away cares.

Remember, start looking for those bargains to go in next years box!
