News update 13/9/2020

Key points today:

CHURCH OPENS TOMORROW!!!! We are so excited that after closing on February 3rd, after 7 and a half months, we’re ready to reveal our new look church building. It’s awesome! We’re open from 8am – 8pm every day this week, so come on down and have a look. We are celebrating by reading the Bible from cover to cover. We’d love as many people as possible to be involved, come and read for a few minutes or hang around and read lots!

Today is our last online service at 9.30 and 11.15! Next Sunday there will be church as normal from 9.30 and 11.15 in Church. I say normal, it won’t be very normal, in fact it will be quite odd, but we’ll get used to it and God will be there with us! For the 11.15 you will need to book before midnight on Tuesday and we’ll let you know on Wednesday if you’ve got a space, or are on the waiting list.

Bookings for Alpha and the Prayer Course are coming very soon. Keep an eye on stpetersbentley.org/events for more info.

Coming Soon to St Peter’s Bentley

Everything that would usually start in the first weeks of September is currently on hold while we navigate re-opening the building. But good stuff is coming soon including:

The Prayer Course (this is part of our Firm Foundations series, so if you’re a new Christian, or new to St Peter’s we really recommend this!). Will be on a Wednesday night, starting soon! ONLINE

Alpha is for you if you are interested in exploring Christian Faith. Perhaps you’ve been looking into the claims of Jesus for a while and want to see if they stack up. Maybe you know someone who is a Christian and you want to know what it’s about so you can set them straight! Whatever your motives and wherever you are in that journey, you’re welcome on Alpha. This will also be online this term on a Thursday evening.

Feed The Fire is a new weekly podcast with a discussion about a bible passage. The plan is that it will come out on a Monday and that there will be an online group on a Wednesday to discuss what you’ve heard and how it might make a difference in your life. This is likely to start in October, so keep an eye out!

Wednesday Communion is a new service on a Wednesday morning at 10am in Church. It starts on the 23rd and will include socially distanced drinks at the end!
