Let us think of ways to motivate one another to acts of love and good works. And let us not neglect our meeting together, as some people do, but encourage one another, especially now that the day of His return is drawing near.

(Hebrews 10:24-25 NLT)


 .. these (things) are written so that you may continue to believe that Jesus is the Messiah, the Son of God, and that by believing in him you will have life by the power of his name. 

(John 20:31 NLT)

Breaking Bread / Communion

We share bread and grape juice (in lieu of wine) to remember Jesus whenever we can, both in our main meetings and in our prayer meetings.  In particular, we usually celebrate this way on the first Sunday of each month.

On the night when He was betrayed, the Lord Jesus took some bread and gave thanks to God for it. Then He broke it in pieces and said, “This is My body, which is given for you. Do this to remember Me.”  In the same way, He took the cup of wine after supper, saying, “This cup is the new covenant between God and His people—an agreement confirmed with My blood. Do this to remember Me as often as you drink it.  (1 Corinthians 11:23-25 NLT) 

Bring and Share Lunch

On the last Sunday of each month we join in our 'Bring and Share Lunch' - also known as 'Butty Sunday'.  Our regular members each bring some food to contribute to a light lunch after the meeting - plus a little extra to make sure that there is plenty for our visitors.  If you attend our meeting, please accept this invitation to share our lunch.  It's a great time to meet new people and to get to know each other better.

Discovery Bible Study

Bible old closed

Imagine a bible study in which your contributions have just as much value as those of the leader; in which no-one is wrong and no-one is criticised as we learn together from God's Word.  That's our Discovery Bible Study - weekly on Tuesdays at 10:30 on Zoom or in the church office.  (Starting again in January).

If your bible doesn't look well worn, then perhaps you should ask yourself whether you are using it enough!  A bible is not meant to decorate a bookshelf - it is intended to be the light which guides us every day.

"Your word is a lamp to guide my feet and a light for my path".  (Psalm 119:105 NLT)

Powerhouse Prayer Meeting

Praying for SianA church communicates with God by prayer and our experience says that prayer meetings are essential for healthy growth.  No matter who you are, you will benefit personally from praying and the church will be stronger too.

We encourage personal prayer at all times and we meet in the Seminar Room at Claremont House at 10:30 pm on the first Tuesday of each month to pray together. Everyone is welcome.

"Jesus often withdrew to the wilderness for prayer". (Luke 5:16 NLT) - If Jesus needed to step away and pray, how much more do we need to?

Every Monday and Thursday throughout the winter we open our lounge for passers-by and visitors to drop in to the church and enjoy a complimentary drink and a slice or two of toast.  We have a warm space if the weather is cold, some puzzles and games, free internet and friendly faces for a chat.
