EU Referendum Debate - Monday 6 June
We are hosting a debate on the EU referendum on Monday 6 June at 7.30 p.m. at Church on the Heath. We have invited two speakers to date - Sarah Dickson, the Director of Liberal Democrats Christian Forum, to speak for Remain and John Petley, who has worked as a researcher in the European Parliament and has published a book entitled "Top 10 reasons to leave the EU", to speak for Leave. Both are Christians, and we hope to bring a Christian dimension to the debate. A selection of questions will be put to the speakers and these can be submitted in advance to email@example.com.
Local Houses of Prayer Training - Saturday 18 June
Fleet Baptist Church (115 Clarence Road, Fleet GU51 3RS)is hosting on our behalf a day's training in Local Houses of Prayer (LHOP), a connected ministry of Ffald-y-Brenin, a retreat house in West Wales where God is doing wonderful things. The day will run from 10 a.m. - 3.30 p.m., and the trainer is Anne de Leyser (who trains in LHOPs nationally and internationally). Here is an LHOP poster and a flier. What are Local Houses of Prayer?
We'll provide light refreshments but not lunch, so please bring your own or be prepared to visit a local shop or cafe (of which there are many). Entrance is free, and here's no need to reserve places in advance as we have plenty of room. But please park in a town centre car park as parking at the church is limited to disabled badge holders and street parking is only for an hour.
Fleet Methodist Church have a vacancy for a Part time Children and Families Worker. I
Livingstones have a vacancy for Saturday staff. If you, or your teenage son or daughter is interested, please contact the shop.
Events at churches open to all -
In Jesus' Steps
From 5th - 19th June, Church of our Lady will be transformed by an event which we are calling "In Jesus' Steps" - the Holy Land comes to Fleet.
Using art, imagery, music and flowers, the Holy Scenes are being created and will depict some of the places where Jesus' Mission was completed, namely, Jerusalem, Sea of Galilee, the Garden of Gethsemane and many others.
Our main objective is to throw open the doors of the church and for people of faith or who have no faith at all, to simply "come and see". The flier has the details. You can download the guide and reflections from http://in-jesus-steps.herokuapp.com/holy_land_scenes/intro.
