COMING SOON


Quest Course - Five weeks finding answers Beginning in October we are starting a new group for people who have questions. It will be suitable for those who are thinking about the big things in life, or those who would like to get the basics of the faith sorted. The evening will include some food together, a short talk considering a big question and then an opportunity to reflect and discuss together. When the group first meets it will agree which questions to look at but they might include:

  • how can we be know God exists and what he is like?
  • what can we know about Jesus and why is his death important?
  • what about Science and Religion?
  • how can we know what is right and wrong?
  • what about suffering, if God is good?

The next evening will be on 24 October and run fortnightly. Speak to Derek for more details.

The Gardening Club’s next session is on Saturday 27 October from 9.30am-12.30pm. The team welcome newcomers, and promises hot drinks, biscuits and plenty of fun tending the churchyard. Whether you want to do something light or something more active, there are jobs to suit everyone. Do bring gloves and any gardening tools you have, but don’t let a lack of tools stop you from turning up!

In Loving Memory 28th October at 3.30pm. Our annual service to remember those who have died.

Pilgrimage to Greece in St Paul's Steps 13 - 20 May 2019
Derek is leading a pilgrimage in Greece next year, following Paul through the country, stopping off at key places on his second missionary journey, including Athens and Corinth. This is a great way of understanding the ‘man and his message’. Visiting places of worship, including the amazing monasteries at Meteora, we will also learn about this stream of Christianity. There will be an introductory evening at 8pm on Thursday 26 July with Derek and Scott Robertson. There are brochures at the back of church with more information.

New home for cycles The Bike Project takes your unwanted cycles and gives them to refugees and asylum seekers in London, to help them support themselves. Now that TWAM no longer takes bikes, why not support this initiative. They can be dropped off at Hampton Methodist Church on Sundays between 11:45am and 12.30pm.

New Carers Café If you are you a carer living in the Hampton area why not join others at a new café at Hampton Hill’s United Reformed Church, 35 High Street. The person you are caring for is also welcome. They offer a safe, supportive and confidential environment in which to meet and share experiences.
