BIBLE STUDY

“Our Bible Study course has now finished It has been very well supported – some weeks over 20 of us. The course has been from a DVD series which is easy to understand and gives a picture of the whole Bible and where the various books fit in. Rev Kathryn, Rev Cathy and Rev Peter then supported us during the discussions

For those of you who couldn’t make the course or missed some of it – the DVDs can be borrowed- just ask Rev Kathryn .

For those of you who like technology – there is a lovely useful free app which also helps to read the Bible it is entitled Read Scripture ”

Play & Praise at St Lawrence Church

Play & Praise is a short informal service suitable for children from birth to when they start school; with story time, prayers, and songs with actions, craft activity and refreshments. The service takes place on Thursday afternoons; 2.15 – 3.15 leaving enough time for parents to collect older siblings from school.
Our service which is held in the Lady Chapel is the same each week so young children are quick to learn the prayers, the musical instruments and songs we use.
We have a craft time where the children will make something, usually from the bible story we had read to them earlier, and a welcome cuppa for all.

PLEASE NOTE

Starts again on 2 May 2019
We look forward to seeing you there​
