The next meetings will be held on Wednesday 30 January. If you would like to be put in touch with a home group, please contact Rachel Forrest or Carolyn Corbett.
On Friday 25 January at Cowes Enterprise College there will be an all Island worship event with guest speaker Pete Greig. The event is free and no ticket is required - just turn up on the night. Pete Greig is a writer, church-planter and founder of the 24-7 prayer movement. He heads up Emmaus Rd in Guildford with his wife Sammy, serves as Vice-President for the NGO Tearfund and was part of the senior leadership team at Holy Trinity Brompton in London for seven years.
On Monday 28 January at 7pm for 7 weeks a Moving On course is being held in the church hall. The course is intended for those who have already attended either an Alpha, Start or similar course and helps participants move on from a Christian basic understanding to be able to actively participate in church life. Those interested are able to register their interest by signing the list in church or speaking to Mark, Brenda or Juliet who will be leading the course.
Please see the separate menu item for details of this 67 mile walk over 6 days being held in the week before Easter 2019.
We have a time of prayer each Saturday at 8.30am for around half an hour, except for the first Saturday in the month when we start at 9.30am and follow prayer with coffee/tea and croissants/brioche. The next 9.30am prayers will be on 2 February. Please join us if you can.
The next meeting of the PCC will be on Thursday 28 March 2019 at 7pm. The annual church meetings will be after the morning service on Sunday 14 April.
The next meeting of the Mothers Union will be on Thursday 7 February 2019 when Rene Duff will be present. If you would like to join MU or are interested in their activities please see Sue Williams who would be glad to talk to you.
The church has a prayer team which is available to pray with anyone after a service or otherwise by appointment. You may want to give thanks, ask for personal prayer for a situation including healing or pray for someone else. The prayer team is there to be a support to you as we invite God to work.
The mums and toddlers group meets on Mondays (10am) and Wednesdays (9.30am) in term time. If you would like to join the group please turn up on the appropriate day or contact Sue Cotton and you will be made very welcome.
There is a collection point for this in the hall which you are free to use. However, some of the local supermarkets do now provide a direct collection point which we would encourage you to use when you can, as it reduces the volume of items we need to physically take to the main collection point in Cowes.
Various collections are organised by the church in addition to Food Bank referred to above. Milk bottle tops are collected for Dogs for Disabilities, used stamps are collected for the Island Blind Society and Mother's Union collect used greetings cards.
