News and Events

We use this page to let everyone know about upcoming events in our church community.

Church with coffee and cake

Around once a month on a Sunday evening we have a cafe-style service, a service in a relaxed and conversational style, enlivened by music, cake, coffee and tea.   Keep an eye on the Worship page and come along.  If you've never tried casual, chatty church you might find it's just your cup of tea.  

Extend exercise

A time to join in some manageable exercise suitable for senior citizens.  You might be surprised how much you benefit from doing just a little more than you thought you could!  Sessions are from 12.00 am to 2.00 pm once a month, including a light lunch. Get in touch if you would like to come, or need a little encouragement. The first session for 2019 will be on 9 January.

Refugee Crisis 

A working group in our Circuit is looking at ways to help with this crisis. Have a look at the special Refugee page for details.  If you would like to be involved with this group, ask the office and we will put you in touch.  They meet regularly at different churches around the circuit.

Turkey and Tinsel - 29 November from 12.00 noon

Make sure you don't miss out on our annual Christmas social event for the senior members of the community. There will be a Christmas lunch followed by musical entertainment, but more than anything the opportunity to see old friends or make new ones.

Everyone is welcome. If you need some encouragement or want to find out any more about it please contact the office and we will get someone from the Turkey and Tinsel to give you a call.

Glory of Christmas Saturday 1 December at 7.00 pm

A great performance by the Trinity Singers raising funds for Nkanfoa School in Ghana. Tickets £7.50 (£3.50 for those at school). 

Come and have a sing on Saturday 8 December

Churches Together in Four Oaks are singing carols for the shoppers in Mere Green on 8 December, and your voice is needed. Rest assured, enthusiasm is valued even more highly than tunefulness, the ability to maintain a smile for 30 minutes is far more important than the ability to hold a note!

We are sharing a time slot with friends from Sacred Heart to share our joy in the Christmas season between 1.30-2.00 pm. The more of us there are, the merrier the sound we will make. 

Christmas in Song - Saturday 8 December from 7.30 pm

A seasonal concert featuring the B Natural choir who rehearse at our church and have a strong connection with us. There will be guests from the Singing Community of Choirs and some carols for everyone to join in with. Click here to get in touch with Richard and book tickets.
