The ins and outs of what is happening at NightChurch

NightChurch News, 29 November

This Week @ NightChurch

Our Vietnamese congregation will be joining us for a combined baptism service. Luke Evans is organising the music team, Stefan van Boxtel and Anita Pallot are on audio/data, Amy Hunter will lead in prayer, Crispin Newmarch is providing supper, and Sam Taylor is convening. Thanks everyone.

 

This Week @ KBC:

  • Worship Jam Session: Wednesday 25 November, 7:30pm in the church. Bring your voices, your instruments, your favourite songs, whatever. We’re just going to hang out and make music to God! Everyone welcome.
  • For Your Consideration: Thursday 26 November, 6pm at The Ponds. Featuring talks from Andy Hunter and Natasha Moore. See here for more details: facebook.com/events/889016267851806
  • Annual Church Gathering: Sunday 29 November, 11am in the hall. If you are a member of KBC, can you please make it a priority to be present? If you are an active attender or new person at KBC you are warmly invited and welcome to be present. We can’t celebrate the work of God, and we can’t discern the leading of the Holy Spirit without the body of Christ at KBC being present together. And please pray in the lead-up that we will have a wonderful time celebrating God’s work among us and that we can prayerfully discern God’s leading into 2016 and beyond.
