A Church for all the Family
We are a local church with a congregation of all ages and from many backgrounds and nationalities. We believe that the Bible offers good news to all who are prepared to investigate its message and we would like to give everyone in Bearwood the opportunity to find out about this good news. In this issue of News and Views, we would like to take the opportunity to introduce some of the activities that we run during the week.
Sunday Worship 10:30am-12:00pm
We meet every Sunday for a lively service with singing, Bible Teaching and Communion. We have children’s groups with a story, worksheets and craft for those aged 3-15 and a comfortable crèche which is well stocked with games and cuddly toys. We serve refreshments of tea, coffee and biscuits after the service. The first service of every month is a family service lasting for no more than an hour with children’s songs, quizzes, activities, puppets and story-telling.
Sunday @ Seven
Sunday at Seven is for those want to find out a little bit more about what the Bible teaches and how it is relevant to our daily lives. It is also a good opportunity for people to come along who can’t make the morning meeting because of work or family commitments. We start at 7:00pm with pizza, cakes and soft drinks and then split into various groups depending on where people are in their spiritual journey. Currently the groups include
21CD is particularly tailoured for 11-18 year olds with opportunity for games, discussion and interaction with contemporary film, television and music.

Every week a group of about 20 ladies meet for a short service featuring well-loved hymns and choruses. There is a short talk and opportunity to catch up over tea and a biscuits.

Our Toddlers groups are well established and very popular. There is often a waiting list for the morning group although the afternoon group is a little quieter with plenty of spaces still available. There is time to play, sing songs, listen to stories and enjoy juice, toast and biscuits.
