As a group of believers we believe that the Gospel is for sharing and therefore we are committed to mission and evangelism both at home and overseas. We also believe that for Christians to grow in their relationship with Christ and love for one another, and the world, there needs to be provision for meeting together on a regular basis. Nothing of eternal value can be achieved without prayer. For this reason, our activities include:
- Café Inspire is a joint venture with the Anglican church and meets in Shrivenham school hall on the second Saturday of the month between 10 and 11:30am. Just come for a cup of coffee and a chat, perhaps also taking the opportunity to have a bacon roll or a home made cake or to read some of the day’s newspapers. Our younger guests can play with a range of toys and join in crafts . We have a regular discussion time when matters related to Christian beliefs and/or current affairs are considered (eg “What would Jesus say to……..”) etc.
