Meal out this Sunday evening (7:30pm, Sunday 13th January) Instead of eating before the service, there will be an opportunity to head out to a local restaurant (Franco Manca) after the evening service. The food is cheap and service is usually quick! Coffee and cake will be available from 6:00pm and the service will start promptly at 6:15pm.
Women’s Prayer Meeting (9:30am to 11:00am, Monday 14th January) All women are invited to come and pray in the undercroft on Monday 14th from 9:30am, even if you are not regularly able to join one of the midweek women’s groups.
English Language Classes (10:00am to 11:30am, on Tuesdays) The classes for this term start on Tuesday 15th January from 10.00am until 11.30am and will finish on 26th March (note: there is no class on Tuesday 19th February as it is half-term). After the class, those who wish can join us for a bible study from 11.45am until 1.00pm, when we are continuing to look at John’s gospel using ‘the Word one to one’ materials. All levels of English are welcome.
If you are interested in coming along or know of someone who might be interested, please contact Gussie Staton.

It will begin on Wednesday 23rd January and will run alongside Wednesday Central. Like other courses it is based on a DVD series of talks, with Bible study, group discussion, and plenty of time for questions. More details here.
