Notices for Sunday 5th April 2015

Easter Day


Open Door Stewards: This is Week 1 on your rota.

Bible Study Group: We have looked at the Books of Judges and Samuel, and seen how, from a group of loosely connected tribes, the united Kingdom of Israel emerged under Saul and David. Now, with David's death, we are ready to look at the reign of Solomon his successor, and then the division into the two Kingdoms of Israel and Judah, as recounted in the Books of Kings. We shall start this series of meetings in the choir vestry at 2:30pm on Tuesday 14th April.
