Midweek life of Church

We have a whole variety of different opportunities to be part of the life of the Church during the week.  This is a great way to meet people and to connect in different ways.  We are aware with the many different commitments that people have it is not always possible to join a weekly meeting.  We hope there is something that will suit everyone.

As well as the groups below many people are involved in other activities, reaching out to the community.  If there is an area that you are interested in getting involved in let us know and we will see if we can help you.  Some of the regular activities include; Street Pastors, Foodbank and the Pregnancy Crisis Centre.

If  you require more details of any of these activities contact the church office initially on 01978 291282

Which group do I choose?

If you are new to the church we would recommend the 'Introduction to Church life'.  We will help you find other groups you can join later.  If you have not done the 'Hearing God's Voice' or  'Encounter' these are great courses that last for 8 & 10 weeks.

Any doubts give us a call at the office.

How do I join?

If you know the person running the group please talk directly to them and they can give you all the details.  If you do not know the person please talk to one of the leadership or contact the office and we will make sure you are put in the right direction.

New Groups:

ENCOUNTER - Who’s the group for?  Everyone, you are welcome to do this course more than once!  This is an ideal group if you have recently become a Christian or just joined the Church.

Purpose: This teaching and its application have been foundational to helping many people take massive steps forward in their walk with God.  We look at the power of the cross; hearing God & how to be free and stay free. 

Please could you contact the Church office on 01978 291282 if you would like to do ‘Encounter’.

"It is a time of freedom and openness where I enjoy the fellowship."  "It is a safe place - we can share pretty much anything here without being judged." "We find encouragement and lots of love here, where relationships can be built."  "It stimulates my spiritual and emotional growth."  "I value exploring individual questions I am working on with the wider perspective and wisdom of the group."  "It is possible to hear Father God and other people without distraction and with time for reflection."

If you feel drawn to join us you will find us very welcoming.  Contact or talk to Phil Arton to express your interest.  The next meetings will be on 3rd, 17th & 31st October 2017.

FRIDAYS

The Friday Walk Group

Is active every Friday whatever the weather, completing some 40 walks per year.   We can vary the difficulty depending on who is coming and are aiming to plan a mix of walks that will suit a range of abilities.   You do need walking boots and wet weather gear though God seems to have favoured us with generally clement weather.  The gentler walks will be a minimum of 3 hours though 4 hours is more typical.  Occasionally we tackle something more strenuous, like one of the mountains in Snowdonia.

We normally plan the walks within the school day leaving Wrexham about 9.30am and returning before 4pm.  Walking is great, healthy exercise and very sociable.  We have seen some beautiful parts of North Wales and Cheshire/Shropshire over the last 8 years.  Walks are usually 'new' - we rarely repeat exactly where we have been before so have great fun navigating and exploring new areas and overcoming the unforseen hazards that sometimes arise!.   If you are interested please see Phil Arton.
