What can the Washingborough Group offer you?

services3

Services - There are services at all three of our churches every Sunday morning (except when we have a Benefice Service) and usually at least two of those services will be celebrations of Holy Communion. For details of what services are taking place this coming Sunday, visit the home page.

In addition to Sunday services, there is a celebration of Holy Communion every Wednesday morning at 10:00am at St. John's and other celebrations of Holy Communion take place at other venues over the course of the month. See the "What's On" page for details.

Most services are either Holy Communion or Morning Worship, but sometimes we have other types of service. For more information, click here.

prayer Prayer - If you have a friend or relative in need of prayer and you would like us to pray for them, you can send us a "Prayer Request" by filling in the form on the Prayer page.
 marriage  

Life Events - Life events include Baptisms, Confirmations, Weddings and Funerals. These events have to be planned in, especially weddings, so if you are planning a Life Event and would like to hold it at one of our Churches, please contact our Rector, George.

The Church of England website has advice on those wishing to be Baptised or have their children Baptised and also advice on Marriage and Funerals.

 bible_study Bible Study - We hold regular Bible Studies on alternate Thursday evenings. These are usually but not always at the Rectory, so it is best to check our "What's On" page for the details. Also if there is a particular theme for the Bible Study it will be described in the entry on the "What's On" page.
alpha

Alpha Course - (Note these have been postponed until June). We are putting on some Alpha courses during the year. The Alpha course began life in a London Church, Holy Trinity church in Brompton and since its early beginnings, has seen hundreds of thousands of people all over the world going on it. For many it has been a truly life changing experience. The Alpha will run on Tuesday evenings and will start at 7.30pm. There will be material for the evening to be explored and we will finish with a light supper. We shall meet at the Rectory on Church Hill, Washingborough. The dates will be published when we know what they are.

If you have heard about the Alpha course but never been to one, or if you have been asking serious questions about the Christian faith, why not come along and see what all the fuss is about. Give George Goalby a ring or text/e-mail him and get your name down.

 fellowship-small  Fellowship Group - The Fellowship Group meets every 2nd and 4th Wednesday of the month at 7:30pm. The venue tends to vary and also there is usually a theme so check the "What's On" page for details.
 coffee2_small Coffee - An opportunity for a sit down and a natter. There are regular coffee mornings, some of these at the Methodist Church, plus coffee is served after the services on Sunday and Wednesday morning. As you may have guessed you need to check the "What's On" page for details.
 fayre Community Fayres and Markets - We have the occasional Fayre and Charity Market throughout the year at the Washingborough Community Centre. Since these are occasional it is best to check the "What's On" page or contact one of the Churchwardens who will be able to tell you when the next one is.
 bellringers Bellringing - The original "Heavy Metal Band". If you like making a lot of noise and going to the pub afterwards then why not learn to ring? For more details contact the Webmaster, Jonathan Clark (who also happens to be the Tower Captain). For some more information on Bellringing, including our practice nights, visit the Bellringing page.
