Church @ 4 met for the first time on Sunday 8th September 2013. We had a great time learning about the Parable of the Sower. We started off in the Meeting Place making coasters and placemats with leaves and a verse from James 1, 'Accept the word that God plants in your hearts'. We did some potato printing and made beaks to wear on our heads. We then went into Church and had a short service with a video, stories, singing and some interactive prayers. Finally, we all had a picnic tea and shared some time together.
Annual Report - February 2019
Church @ 4 has continued to run throughout 2018 with numbers varying quite widely. In the summer we gathered at Langborough Rec and had a picnic and played games - even Bailey (my dog) enjoyed himself there.
Towards the end of the year, we felt that Church @ 4 could be done a little differently and we decided that a more relaxed session would be good. In December we pioneered 'Craft@4' where families came and shared fellowship, crafts and food solely in the café area. We had some powerful conversations and found that it was a very calm spiritual time of sharing. We will continue with this format for the foreseeable future and hope that some of the wider congregation will support it as it is not a separate congregation but a key part of our whole church family.
