Over  2018 – 19 we are following a teaching scheme called ‘Shine like Stars’  The topics for the Sunday services are given below. The evening services follow the same theme and reading as the morning service but with a different aspect being explored.

The Housegroups are using study material that links in with the teaching and expands the understanding of the text.  We are celabrating 60 years in our present building so this is our diamond anniversary so hence the “sparkly” theme. 

The present theme is studying the prophet Elisha and here is a PDF of the bible study material – Elisha-2018

The previous theme was the I Am statements of Jesus and here is a PDF of the bible study material – I am booklet

There are a number of half-hour lectures planned to give background and expansion on the individual themes.  These are on Sunday mornings starting at 9.30am with refreshments available from 9.15am, please see the plan below for the dates of these.
