We are holding an election hustings for all the Weaver Vale candidates on Tuesday the 23rd of May in St John's Church.
Coffee will be served from 7.30pm and the hustings will start at 8pm. All the candidates standing in Weaver Vale will be present and they will have a chance to introduce themselves at the beginning of the meeting. After introductions, questions will be taken from the floor.
This meeting is not just for the church, but it is an event hosted by the church for our whole community.
Christianity Explored is an informal 7-week course for anyone who would like to investigate Christianity, see what the Bible really says or ask any questions that they have.
Our next Christianity Explored course starts on Tuesday 9th May at 8pm in St John's Church Centre.
Looking at Mark's gospel, the course explores who Jesus is, why he came, and what it means to follow him.

OM Global Village Experience
From 10th to 18th June, Operation Mobilisation is running its Global Village event at The Spire in Wallasey (CH44 3BD).
Global Village is an innovative and interactive project that allows teens and adults to go on a 3-hour simulated mission trip. Created to engage all your senses – sight, smell, sound and touch – participants are immersed into an environment where they are encouraged to share the Gospel.
Whilst encountering a broken world face-to-face, participants discover more of God’s heart for people, challenging them to reflect Jesus in difficult places, local and global. Global Village is designed to motivate Christians of all ages to engage with the Great Commission.
Nathan is taking a group from Crossover to this event, so if you would be interested in taking part in this experience with them, please talk to him. To find out more, please go to the OM Global Village website.
