1) Christianity Explored
Next term we’re launching into a 6 week investigation of the core beliefs of the Christian faith. Starting on Wednesday evenings (7.15-9.15) from 5th August, each evening involves a meal and an ‘any question goes’ approach to our discussion. Perfect if you’re new to Christian things or want to get settled on exactly what the gospel is. Sign up by speaking to Chris or Rob.
2) Message Church Camp
Another reminder that the annual Message Church Camp takes place from 28-30 August. Please diarise this and start saving for it. It is usually one of the highlights of the year.
3) Andrew Hoole’s Baptism
Andrew will be baptised on Sunday evening during the evening service. Baptisms are always great celebratory occasions and wonderful signs of God’s grace. So do join us for this special occasion.
4) Rusitu Mission
As you may be aware a number of folk from The Message are going up to Rusitu in Zimbabwe at the end of June on a short term mission.
