It would be wonderful if you could all join us for inspiring video-led worship. You will be able to listen to a themed sermon and enjoy some uplifting hymns. 

Singing is a beautiful and powerful channel that can delight, encourage and inspire. In our communion with God, singing is one of the upmost of our expressions of praise, worship, and thanks. It is right and acceptable to God when done sincerely and from an honest heart – even if it is not perfectly in tune.

Wednesday 26th of October 2022- 9.30am-10.30am- Morning Prayer at ASK

WEDNESDAY MORNING WORD AND PRAYER
2nd and 4th Wednesday a month 

Have you been thinking that you want learn more about God's Word as revealed in the Bible and have chance to discuss this with others? Or perhaps you would like the chance to pray more for our locality, those you know and care about, and the World we Live In? An excellent way to do this is to join us at 9:30am on a Wednesday morning for "Word and Prayer" held in the Church. Our focus is on learning together, not just through teaching but through discussion and the sharing of our own experiences and insights relating to each Bible passage that we read. I can't tell you how  much we all learn in these sessions, from each other and from the insights of the leader, and we take away so many key points of knowledge about the nature of God and how we can live this out in our lives. The sessions are very informal. We follow a simple "Morning Prayer" service structure and spend about half an hour discussing the Bible passage, allowing time for prayer also. The sessions last an hour with tea/coffee afterwards. If you would like to come along please just turn up on a Wednesday morning at 9:30am!  



Keep us, good Lord,

under the shadow of your mercy.

Sustain and support the anxious,

be with those who care for the sick,

and lift up all who are brought low;

that we may find comfort

knowing that nothing can separate us from your love

in Christ Jesus our Lord. Amen.
