Join us for our Sunday service where we gather in a community of all ages to praise God and learn more about the importance of following God’s word. This week we celebrate Pentecost. Our children’s groups will not be meeting this week as we worship all together.

Saved through Water
Jesus said, “Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptising them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit,”
Pentecost (Acts 2:1-21)
When the Holy Spirit first came on the church, it was a dramatic event. The same strange signs don’t happen when people become Christians, but they help us understand what the coming of the Spirit is all about.
There will be a launch service for the summer season of Sailors’ Church in the harbour on Sunday 4th June at 6pm, with afternoon tea from 5pm beforehand. Everyone is welcome to attend.
“But you will receive power
when the Holy Spirit comes on you;
and you will be my witnesses…
to the ends of the earth”
Witnesses (Acts 1:6-14)
What’s next? Jesus had died and risen again, but what was next for him and his disciples and what’s next for us as a church?
Feedback from the Annual Parochial Church Meeting
At our annual meeting on Thursday 11th May, we had a rather poor number turning out, but a good positive discussion.
Thy Kingdom Come (18th to 28th May)
Please pray! The 18th May is Ascension Day, when we remember Jesus ascending to heaven 40 days after his resurrection. During the ten days after this, his disciples spent time in prayer as they waited for the coming of the Holy Spirit.
Inspired by their example, we want to encourage more prayer today. Over the period from Ascension Day to Pentecost, the Thy Kingdom Come initiative encourages people to engage in extra prayer. We want to join in with this!
“But you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.”
Do you believe in organised religion? (Exodus 18:13-27)
Increasingly people say they want to be ‘Spiritual’ but don’t believe in organised religion. We are not saved by organised religion, but we do need it to help us in our discipleship. In Exodus 18, Moses is given advice on how to organise the people of God.
