24 HOURS OF PRAYER IN SOUTHWATER
Prayer can be moving...
A conversation with God, a time to share our blessings and concerns, or simply time "to be" when we listen for God's guidance.
This special event will span 24 hours inspired by the Diocesan year of prayer.
Where will the Holy Spirit lead us next?
Come, be part of our adventure with God

Activities taking place every month
First Sundays - refreshing and varied worship to suit all tastes!
Following on from our successful launch of First Sundays in 2017 we have a new and exciting programme lined up for 2018.
We kick off the year with "Follow the star - who will you be following this year?" Each First Sunday evening service will be held in a different style. It's great if you are not used to coming to church or would like to try new ways of worship - some of these services are traditional, others are less so.
You are very welcome to join us for refreshments at 7pm for a 7-30pm start. The services usually last about an hour.
All are welcome!
Summer course: The Holy Spirit and sharing Jesus
Using The Holy Spirit course from the Bible Society's Refocus series, tthe significance of Pentecost, find out about the Holy Spirit, and how we can see the work of the Holy Spirit in the Bible. The course brings together viewpoints from many writers in the Bible, guiding us to feel the Spirit in our lives.
You are warmly welcomed to come along with a willingness to explore.
Sessions start at 8pm (we meet at 7-45 for coffee) in a Southwater home. Venues vary weekly so do please get in touch to find out where we're meeting! Thank you
The men's curry club has been meeting for more than ten years. Men from the church community meet up roughly once a month for a relaxing meal and good company. Curry and beer feature regularly but not exclusively.
The group meets up at different venues (with a range of prices) within a few miles of Southwater.
We usually meet at 7-30 for 8pm, sharing cars, or occasionally using public transport, depending on the venue.
Please let Norman know if you are coming two days before the date of the curry so that he can confirm numbers to the venue.
The next meal out is The Cock on Wednesday 20 June.
