Ladies meeting

Contact: Joyce Bailey
For: Any ladies

The Ladies meeting has been in existence for over seventy years, without a break, and the Ladies have enjoyed much good fellowship and ministry over all those years. We meet on Tuesday afternoons, in term time, and enjoy a very informal meeting. We have a different speaker each week when the gospel is presented simply, for a short time, after which we have tea and refreshments and an opportunity to chat. On occasion, we have an “At Home” meeting when we encourage the Ladies to share with us and we have afternoon tea.
All ladies are very welcome to join with us and we would love to see you at our next meeting.

We have a friendly team and we have lots of toys for the children, and real coffee and chocolate biscuits for the grown-ups! We welcome anyone with young children who are looking for somewhere to go on a Thursday morning. Little Fishes is held in the church hall (the entrance is up the side passage to the left of the church).

Sunday

School Sunday

Day/Time: Sunday 10:00am – 10:45am
Frequency: Weekly during term-time
Contact: Roger Blaxall
For: 4-11 year olds

Boys and girls might have lots of things they think are precious – their mobile, pop or sports poster, trainers, a pet, tablet or football kit. But their soul is by far the most precious thing they’ll ever possess, and over 100 years ago a pioneering minister started Sunday Schools to help children understand and appreciate what makes them unique in God’s sight. Today, they’re seen by many as an embarrassment or completely out of tune with modern children. Here at Aughton Park we beg to differ, which is why we are so keen to meet to teach youngsters the wonderful truths of the Bible. Our lessons are simple but serious – and we have fun too when children complete their work books and discover for themselves the amazing characters found in the Scriptures.



Bible Class

Day/Time: Sunday 10:00am – 10:45am
Frequency: Weekly during term-time
Contact: Jon & Lisa Williams
For: 11+ year olds

Bible Class is a group for those in high school or college (and above), with the aim of going deeper into the Bible. This could be by examining together specific characters or books of the Bible, or by discussing topical issues in the news and press. Whatever the theme, listening to different viewpoints and perspectives from other members of the group, and comparing this with what the Bible says, is a great way to appreciate our own differences in the light of the constancy of the Bible.
