We’re a friendly, open church who try to make everyone feel welcome, whether you’re a visitor or you’ve come hundreds of times. Before the service on a Sunday morning is a perfect chance to have a cup of coffee or tea and get to know some of us.
We’re committed to using the Bible to determine how we meet together, how we worship and what we do in the community. We are convinced that God is just as relevant to our world today as when the Bible was written and seek to share this with everyone.
We want to make lots of contributions in the Canley area. There are lots of groups that meet in the church building and our members are involved in many different community groups.
Our main Sunday service is at 11am and you can find out about all our weekly activities (including things for families and children) on the website, find out about how students can fit in, listen to some of the teaching that has been given on Sunday mornings or just have a look around!
It is with much sadness that we are suspending our Sunday services until further notice, in line with Government guidance and other church bodies (Church of England, Methodist, Baptist, FIEC and others). We will, instead, be sending out material by email and post so that we can all take part in a programme of worship in our own homes each Sunday.
Although we are unable to meet together in person we know that as the body of Christ we can pray for each other, encourage each other and share each other’s burdens. ‘Cast all your cares on to Him, for He cares for you’ 1 Peter 5:7
PLEASE FEEL FREE TO SHARE THIS PARTICULARLY WITH ANYONE YOU KNOW WHO MAY BE PLANNING TO COME TO ANY OF THE EVENTS BELOW
As you will no doubt be aware, the Government has made some very serious announcements regarding Coronavirus tonight. The Leadership team have discussed (by conference call) how we should respond and all agree that we should follow the letter and the spirit of the guidance.
What this means for us that we are cancelling with immediate effect the following:
Mid Week lunch
The Musical Afternoon
We will be reviewing what we do regarding Sunday services over the next couple of days and will let you know once we’ve made any further decisions.
As a Leadership we are looking at means of supporting people in the congregation and in the wider community both pastorally and practically. We realise how important this is and will put plans in place over the next few days. Please bear with us on this as we clarify issues.
At this time of uncertainty it is good to remember that our God is the ‘ same, yesterday, today and forever’. He is a God of compassion and faithfulness. The Evangelical Alliance encourages us to pray, not panic, and to show what’s different with Jesus in our lives. Let’s keep our eyes fixed on Jesus.
This Sunday we invite you to join us for worship in your own home. You will find some led worship and readings from Doug & Barbara along with a talk from Glyn Oliver. The service this week will include the opportunity to share communion together so please have some bread and a drink ready.
You can watch today’s service on youtube or below and listen to Glyn speak on “Worship and Dedication”, Romans 11:33-12:2, part of our series “Here we are to Worship”.
