For our final release of the academic year we had a celebration! We had a barbecue, a water balloon fight, games like capture the flag and a visit from Ben Jones from ‘Missional Generation’. Ben talked to us about getting to know Jesus and about their new app called ‘Missional Generation Resourses’! This app teaches younger people about God in fun and interactive ways. We were also led in worship by Johnny! Release is a youth club that takes place every Sunday when it is school time and it involves sun, food, games and Worship for teenagers aged 13 onwards.
In the photo you can see everyone worshipping outside in the sun. We sang songs like ‘Lion and the Lamb’ and ‘This Is Amazing Grace’
Adam, Charlotte and Cyril graduated this week. We pray for their discipleship journey in the future.
One of the prayer stations.
Thanks to all who prayed this week for the Building project Project and God’s guidance for related PCC decisions. The PCC unanimously agreed to submit the HLF bid for the second round of funding, subject to the current appeal to raise £300,000 by the end of July/early August. Also, the new PCC unanimously endorsed the latest design proposals. It was a great meeting! Please continue to pray earnestly, give generously, and trust the Lord for the next steps. 1 Sam 7:12
Another prayer station!

Sunday 18th June – 6pm-8pm
Lots of folk have been talking over the last couple of months about an opportunity for an informal musical worship session – and so we begin this third Sunday in June. Jamming with God is…
- a chance to play and sing with “freedom” – without the need to practice for Sunday
- opportunity to try new things – instruments, harmonies, technical stuff, riffs and rhythms!
- opportunity to play/sing with and learn from all the members of our group without constraints
- bring friends, families, folk who may want to give musical worship a try in anyway or just to “be and listen”. The time we hope will enable any young people who go to Release to be able to pop in for a try if they like
- generally, a fun Jamming Session with Worship music at the centre
This will be a very fluid and work in progress session.. Lots of feedback is needed and welcomed so that we can mould this session into whatever will work best for us as a church. The hope is that whether two or twenty turn-up, it will be a brilliant session! Please come and join us on the 18th June.
