Lent Course 2018 on Friday afternoons at 2:30pm starting on 16 February. ‘Lost for Words’ – sharing faith naturally. Why is it that so many of us feel hesitant and uncomfortable when everyday life brings opportunities to talk about our faith with friends and a host of other contacts? Lost for Words offers a practical, approach to helping people ‘find their voice’ and speak confidently and naturally about their faith. Everyone is welcome to join us. Please see the poster on the notice board for more information and sign-up sheet.

Other Events

Contemporary Worship at Castle Methodist Church This Evening at 6:30pm. Everyone welcome.
Next month on Sunday 25th February the circuit contemporary worship should be here at Lexden. This is to be confirmed.

Time for Prayer on the last Tuesday of the month at 7:30am at the Oak Tree Coffee House – just behind Highwoods Tesco. The first one will be on 30th January. This is an initiative proposed by the Rt Rev’d Roger Morris, Bishop of Colchester, because a lot of exiting things happen when Christians get together and pray. There will be a short time of worship and a brief reflection on Scripture as well.
