The Catechumenate
Presenter: David Lord

Are you interested in being baptised or confirmed? Is it a while (or perhaps never) since you have thought much about your faith? Was the last time you really did any studies on your faith at Sunday School? If you have answered yes to any of those questions and you would like the opportunity to look at your faith from a very basic startingpoint, to look at the basics and perhaps have a tune up. There is the opportunity to run a Catechumenate, if there are sufficient numbers, at a time and day that will suit the majority of people. If you are interested or want further information, contact David.

EFM: Education for Ministry 

Wednesday Nights @ 6:30pm with a shared meal

EfM can be summed up as Exploring faith Matters.
EfMhelps us to interpret the richness of the church’s faith in our complex world and to express it with confidence, in both words and actions, in our day-to-day lives and in our own communities.

Many people come to EfM wanting more understanding of the Bible and the Church, as well as support in day-to-day ministry. Some want skills training to be better listeners, or to help others to faith or to support those in need. Some want to make connections between their faith and their everyday experience.
