Other Church Activities


Activities

Prayer - we believe that prayer is essential to the life of the church and our ministry in the community.  All of our regular programmes incorporate a strong emphasis on prayer.  We hold a regular evening of prayer every Tuesday at 7:30pm, as well as regular days of prayer, to seek God's guidance and direction.

Bible Study Groups - various groups meet in the week during the daytime and evenings.  These are precious opportunities to grow closer to God and to build relationships. Please contact Jean Cunningham if you are interested in joining a home group.

CatURpillars - parent and child activity session for babies & toddlers held:
Thursday: 12:45 - 14:30
Friday: 10:30 - 12:30

See separate page for more details.

Prayer Group For The Suffering Church - see below.

Coffee, Bowls & Banter - also for the more mature in years, a weekly drop in group for senior citizens on Wednesdays from 10:00 Ė 12:00 costing £1.00.  With short mat bowls, table games plus refreshments.

Afternoon Special - for the more mature in years.  A chance to meet new friends, have fun and some tea togetherÖ plus a pause for thought about God.  This is usually held once every two months, on a Friday afternoon.

Church Day Away - an annual time to go deeper with God and with one another, usually in the summer.

Our weekly notice sheet and our monthly church magazine, 'The Link', gives more details on church activities and is available from the church.

Other Support Activities

Prayer Ministry Team - is available every Sunday after the 10:30 service to pray with you.

Christian Healing Ministry - we believe that the church is charged with the task of continuing the work that the Lord Jesus Christ began and that healing is an important part of its ministry.  Jesus is the only true healer and he works both through medicine and through the prayers of his people.  We follow the Biblical practice of 'the laying on of hands' for healing.  Please contact the minister if you have a particular need in this area.

Services on CD - recent services are available on CD from the back of church.

House Groups

Itís really good to note how many more people have been asking about House Groups, Iím sure people will agree how valuable this is to those who attend. We now have 7 House Groups running every week and I thought it would be a good idea to list them for you. I have put contact numbers for group leaders as it is generally a good idea to speak to someone before you decide which one to go to. As you will understand, some are becoming rather crowded and this can cause a problem, not least with seating!

Monday: 19:50 in Wroxall.

Wednesday: 14:00 - 16:30 in Shanklin

Wednesday: 19:30 in Shanklin

Thursday: 10:00 for 10:15 start @ various locations

Thursday: 19:30 for 19:45 start @ various locations

There is a young people's group being planned, contact Jean Cunningham ( 863850 for details or watch this space

If you need help deciding which group would be best for you, donít hesitate to ask.

Outreach

Alpha Courses - these are held periodically for those who want to find out more about the Christian faith.  This and other outreach events and activities are now being developed with other local Christians.

See the Christians Working Together In Shanklin page for more details.

Services at Tile Residential House - a communion service usually held on the second Friday of each month at 11:30

Services at Springfield Nursing Home - usually held on the last Friday of each month at 11:00.

Prayer Group For The Suffering Church

A prayer group has been meeting in Shanklin for several years and comes from several different churches. Meets every month downstairs in the church on the second Monday of the month at 10:00.

When it first started, it met every week and over the years those attending have learnt so much as they have prayed for our brothers and sisters who are suffering  persecution for their faith and have seen some wonderful answers to prayer.

Please read the 'Focus' article in our church magazine

If you would like to know more, please speak to Pat Moore, Sue White or Jane Hancock at Church.
