Having held a couple of hustings events before, and with a general election round the corner, we thought we’d do another!
All are invited along on Saturday 3rd June, 7-10pm, to hear from the available parliamentary candidates for Torfaen. There will be a selection of questions addressed to the candidates to see how they respond in order to help you consider how you vote. There may be an opportunity for questions from those in attendance as well, time permitting.
And if nothing else, we will be serving complimentary tea, coffee and cake halfway through.
Why not let you know everything that is planned for the summer in terms of the preaching? We can’t think of a good reason not to. So here are the four sermons series planned incorporating both morning and evening. (And just in case you’re wondering, summer starts now!)
Messy Church Conclusion: Messy Grace (1 Corinthians)
Our annual Good Friday service this year will be at Usk Baptist Church at 7pm. We’ll join with other churches for communion and remember Christ’s death. Our guest preacher will be our own former minister, Bert Weenink.
You’ll find Usk Baptist Church on Old Market Street, Usk NP15 1UA. If you need a lift, please do not hesitate to ask. Here’s a map:
There’s a new course that we’re going to run called Life Explored. It’s a bit like the other course we’ve run, Christianity Explored, except it’s just a little different.
It’s especially designed for people who are interested in considering Christianity and the message of the Bible. So if you wouldn’t call yourself a Christian, or if you’d even call yourself an agnostic, or atheist, or if you don’t know what you’d call yourself, then this is for you! Or maybe you are a Christian and want to explore your faith a bit more, if so then this is for you as well.
From Sunday 7th May at 6pm, over seven weeks we’ll be running the course alongside our Sunday evening service, in our upstairs hall. The course consists of video content alongside discussion groups and short Bible studies. You don’t need any previous knowledge and you won’t be put on the spot or asked to do anything you’re not comfortable doing.
The course provides a relaxed environment to be informed and to raise whatever questions you would like to ask about the Christian faith. And it is of course free of charge! Here’s a trailer to entice you:
All are invited to come along. Contact us if you’d like any further details.
