Church Road is a growing church with an exciting vision for the future. It involves rationalising our site, developing new projects of outreach and service to the community so that we help people experience the transforming love of God, change lives and communities as we follow Christ. No matter how much we try to use social media, we would say you can't beat a face to face conversation so don't hesitate to ask for an appointment with Stephen, our Minister, if you would rather have a chat.
CALLING ALL KNITTERS!
If you’ve time to knit for our Christmas outreach project please speak to Stephen and he will give you all the details and a pattern! Also, if you’ve any spare wool you could donate, please let us know. Thank you.
Please note that Room Bookings are being organised by Bill & Monica Bissett 01253 728140.

Our Minister, Rev Stephen Heath
I would like to say thank you so much to Stephen and all the church family for all the prayers, lovely cards, telephone calls, flowers visits and all the love shown to me after my accident. I’m feeling much better now and hope to be back with you before very long. Sometimes it takes something like this to happen for us to realise just how much we are loved and valued by our wonderful church family. To all of you again, thank you and God bless you all.
Following on from the wonderful response to our request last year, we would like to ask for your support once again in donating shop bought or homemade mince pies (that can be frozen). This will enable us to offer and share hospitality with friends, neighbours and each other during the Christmas period, starting with the prayer day on 2nd December. All donations can be given to Catherine Peak, Caroline Livesey or left in the Church kitchenette from the week commencing 20th November 2017.
PRAYER DAY in church from 10.00 a.m. to 2.00 p.m. - helping us to get ready for Christmas with a day of prayer and reflection.
As part of our preparations for the prayer day, we are also keen to borrow a wash bowl and pitcher / jug set and also some barbed wire! If you are happy to lend these items to us for use from week commencing 27th November until just after Christmas Day, please contact Caroline Livesey on 738039 and she will arrange to collect them.
