We are so pleased to launch a new pattern of worshipping together from September. Here’s a little bit more information, but please don’t hesitate to get in touch if you’d like to find out more. Please do come along, bring a friend, and find out what it’s all about. We can’t wait to meet you !
Our Family Holy Communion services, at 10am each Sunday in St Giles, All Saints, Barnby on the 2nd Sunday and All Saints, Coddington on the 4th Sunday, are an opportunity for everyone to gather together for worship. We want to encourage anyone who would like to, to get involved, either in reading a lesson, leading the prayers or taking part in leading the worship. We have resources for our younger members and want everyone to know they have a place with us and a part to play.
FREE TO BE
FREE TO BE is the new service, taking place in St Giles church at 6pm on the first Sunday of each month.
There will be a variety of worship styles and plenty of space to reflect, pray and encounter God.
The plan for the first term is as follows:
Sunday 5th September – We Worship – a celebration of new beginnings, led by our wonderful worship band.
Sunday 3rd October – Prayer Stations – an opportunity to explore interactive prayer ideas in an atmosphere of praise and worship.
Sunday 7th November – Choral Evensong
Sunday 5th December – Advent Carol Service
4 @ THE HALL
4 @ The Hall is a brand new event for all the family that will be held in the St Giles Community Hall on the 3rd Sunday of each month at 4pm.
It is an opportunity to gather together, meet new people, join in with a variety of activities and, of course, eat cake!!
Please come and worship with us in a new and exciting way!
4 @ The Hall had a great first session on Sunday 19th September
Here’s what people said they enjoyed:
“I came to support the new format Sunday event at the hall and had no idea what to expect. It was wonderfully welcoming, friendly and informal. Very thoughtful activities which could involve children and adults. Very good modern music.”
“The friendly welcome; the chance to sit and chat; the table set-up; chance for the children to do some colouring and take part in some activities; the singing; the blend between structured/unstructured time”
“I thought the activities were great and there was a nice balance between the children being able to do some colouring and then also being active”
“Couldn’t have asked for a better session! Amazing”
WORSHIP IN THE AFTERNOON
Worship in the afternoon, at 4pm on the 4th Sunday each month, is held at All Saints, Barnby in the Willows and is a new service that aims to connect our worship with the glorious creation that surrounds us. There will be themed services with guest speakers, often outdoors to make use of the wonderful space by the river.
And Every Thursday: 10.00 am St Giles, Balderton
