Sunday services - August to October 2011

In the summer months it's good for the tempo of church life to drop a little before the pace quickens in the autumn. The seasons remind us of the rhythms that are part of God's blessing and it's good for us to let them lead our living.

In August we continue our series on the Great Psalms.

We then follow a series of new starts for people from many diverse backgrounds, from the wealthy to the poor, the educated and those in high office to those who society has excluded, men and women, young and old.

Our Harvest Thanksgiving begins a season of services for our giving campaign, which this year seeks to encourage us to give sacrificially in response to all that God has given us.
