Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, most of the activities listed below are suspended for the time being.
'Contact' Midweek Fellowship - First Wednesday of every month at 2pm
We chose the name 'Contact' for three reasons:
Contact with each other
Contact with the community
Contact with God
Our meetings are devotional and we always try to engage speakers who give us an insight into many interesting subjects. We also include social activities in some of our meetings such as a fish and chip lunches and themed buffet lunches.
A warm welcome awaits anyone who would like to join us at any of our meetings.
Please note that Contact is currently suspended due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Saturday Coffee Morning - 9:15am to 11:15am every Saturday
Our coffee room is open from for anyone who fancies a cuppa and a chat. All are welcome so why not come along.
Please note that our Coffee Mornings are currently suspended due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
House Groups are being planned for 2021. We will meet in members’ homes for an opportunity to study the bible, discuss different issues, and enjoy a chat and cup of tea/coffee with other members of our church family. This is an opportunity to support one another and learn more about the Christian faith in a more relaxed and informal setting.
Watch this space for further details.
So What Are We Doing?
Well, during the current crisis we are working in partnership with other churches across our community to meet the needs of those who find themselves in difficulty:
On Monday's, working along side St. John's and All Saint's Church, Sawley we prepare "Manna" Food Boxes for the disadvantaged. This is a prepay scheme, costing just £6 that you can sign up for through our Facebook page.
On Wednesday's, again with St. John's, we prepare hot meals for those who turn up. This is free to anybody, just turn up at St. John's on College Street for around 11am.
Tuesday's and Friday's see us working alongside Long Eaton Foodbank - and if you are struggling to make ends meet just drop us a line and we'll sort you out with a voucher.
Working with the Canaan Trust we support those who find themselves homeless.
Then there is the Well, a shop we opened in partnership with Hope Long Eaton and Trinity Methodist Church, where we support young families; redistributing children's clothes and toys, offering advice and support to those who call in, and signposting people to available services. You don't have to have a young family to pop in - we'd love to see you.
