Sunday Evening Service - 27th January 2019 at 6:30pm

We will be receiving a speaker called Richard Bacon, from Wellesbourne. 

Richard is a lecturer in Business Management, as well as playing an active role in his local church as a lay reader, Mission Coordinator, PCC member and CAP Debt Coach. He has preached regularly for 30 years, and has led all-age services and has volunteered on youth holidays. Richard is passionate about Tearfund’s work serving the poor and needy, addressing physical and spiritual needs in long-term sustainable projects. He particularly wants to share God’s heart for the hurting and needy parts of His world.

Tearfund has been at work for 50 years and now works in over 50 countries. They are among one of the best known Christian charities working globally today. Their website states, “We're following Jesus where the need is greatest, working through local churches to unlock people's potential and helping them to discover that the answer to poverty is within themselves. When disasters strike, we respond quickly. We won't stop until poverty stops.”


Sunday Evening Service - 11th November 2018

Speakers from two local organisations...

NightLight – Sidney Syson, sharing her longstanding experience
A weekly project offering free hot drinks and a listening ear to those out and about at night. It's based at All Saints' and runs every Friday night from 10.00pm, closing normally by 2.00am on Saturday. It's about creating an atmosphere of hospitality, welcome, and the presence of Christ among us during the night-time hours. The prime focus is not on meeting the needs of the homeless, although they are welcome and frequently present; the hospitality is for anyone who is passing by.

Street Pastors – Andrew Emm, a well-known member of Dale Street Methodist Church
The mission of Street Pastors is to train volunteers drawn from Christian churches of different denominations to create a more peaceful, safe and harmonious environment for those of the public out at night. They typically patrol the streets of Leamington Spa on given nights of the week providing a listening ear, practical help and where possible meeting those needs that present themselves, particularly from the most vulnerable or marginalised. They are non-judgemental and will give time and help to anyone and everyone they meet. They work in partnership with the police, local councils and a range of voluntary and statutory organisations in order to reach and help all those in need. The gospel is the reason for what they do and shapes their actions. As regards their words, they will share their faith if invited to by those they meet.


Mission Sunday 13th May 2018 

10:30am Service: Keith Judson, Hospice Chaplin

Primrose Hospice Chaplaincy
Facing a life-limiting illness can be very disorientating. We may struggle to come to terms with how things will change for us, our families and friends. Sometimes we find ourselves asking questions about the value, meaning and purpose of our lives.

Conversations often take place at Primrose in which staff and volunteers listen with sensitivity to these kinds of concerns. The Chaplain has a particular role in offering friendship and support to patients and their families, whatever their background or beliefs.

Keith Judson joined us in October 2014, after nearly eight years in regional Baptist ministry. He is seconded by Bromsgrove Baptist Church to serve as Chaplain to Primrose Hospice. His work includes spending time with patients and family members, home and hospital visits, as well as leading acts of shared reflection and remembrance.

6:30pm Service: Andy Bissex, Church Relationship Manager

Bible Society
Working in over 200 countries, Bible Society is a charity on a global mission to bring the Bible to life for every man, woman and child. We believe that when people engage with the Bible, lives can change – for good.

That single mission drives a huge range of activities. In some parts of the world, bringing the Bible to life focuses on translation and distribution projects. Elsewhere it focuses on leadership training, or literacy programmes, or interfaith dialogue. Closer to home, in England and Wales, it focuses on advocacy effort, schools outreach and devotional resources.
