The Elders are planning a longer Awayday this year and moved it back to the summer. There will the usual time for three sessions of teaching, but more time for fellowship and exploring the neighbourhood. The current plans are roughly 10am to 8pm, with us bringing our own packed lunch, but then sharing a meal together from 6pm onwards (possibly Fish & Chips, this to be confirmed)
So please keep the date….. and watch this space for further information.
We encourage all our members to go to this event on Sunday 29th March 2020, instead of our own service (there is a short communion service at ABC at 10.30am for those unable to go into town). It’s at the Town square, Lockmeadow Riverside, and there will be two performances – 11am and 3pm (some of the ABC fellowship are acting in the play, others helping as stewards etc). It’s a great opportunity to invite a friend to come along and hear about the message of Jesus.
Further information from the Waypoint website
If you would like to volunteer as a steward (or any other role), please email firstname.lastname@example.org
Dates for other evening DVD services / discussion are: March 29th, April 26th, May 24th and July 26th.
