ST. JAMES’ CRINKEN
Sunday Morning: Each Sunday we meet at 11 am to worship in song, to pray and to hear from the Scriptures. The worship style is a blend of both traditional and modern, and appeals to a wide range of ages.
We share together in the Lord’s Supper on the second Sunday morning in each month. If you are a follower of Jesus you are very welcome to join us.
There is a children’s program that runs at the same time as the morning service, including crèche for veery young children.
The current series of talks are entiltled ’In the Valley’, explorying our experience of God ’in the valley of darkness’ in the difficult and challenging times in life.
Engage - our 7pm Evening Service. Engage is our contemporary service, based on vibrant and modern music style and a commitment to Biblical preaching. Everyone is welcome, especially if you enjoy contemporary style worship.
The current series of talks are entitled ‘Why God Hates Religion and Loves Sex!’. We are looking in this series at how Jesus spoke about sex and religion, and how it relates to modern life. We wonder whether you would be interested in either doing a interview or just a community notice regarding this series.
