Here are just a few things we do, or support, as a church that help us to feel like a family. We would love to invite you to join in any you want to!
We would love for you to come along to our main church gatherings, every Sunday at 10:30am. We currently meet in Scotforth St Paul’s Primary School, straight off the A6. Look out for our sign and our friendly stewards who will show you where to go!
Youth & Children’s Work
Jonny, Lou & Naomi run our youth and children’s work. Jonny and Lou are also our safeguarding officers.
During our Sunday meetings, we have primary and secondary groups that meet to learn more about God through games and discussion and we eat biscuits…..we love biscuits! We join with the youth from Hope Church Lancaster on Monday nights 7-9pm for more games, haribo and faith discussions.
Please contact us to find out more: firstname.lastname@example.org
We encourage everyone to join one of our life groups which meet in local homes at various locations around the city. We talk, laugh, study the Bible, pray and ‘do life’ together in these groups and look to reach out to the wider community.
Life groups are where relationships are built and where people grow in confidence in expressing their faith.
Men & Women’s ministries
Our men and women enjoy meeting together for Breakfasts, Sports Events, BBQs, Quiz Nights, Craft Nights and other socials, as well as the occasional retreat and times of devotion and Bible study!
We have two teams who play on Wednesday nights through the autumn and winter in the local Sportsreach league, providing the opportunity to play a brilliant team sport and share who God is and what a difference knowing Jesus makes to our lives. If you love netball, please get in touch (Sorry men, not for you!).
Our church loves the work of CAP and supports our local centre in Morecambe.
CAP help over 21,500 people a year through our free debt help, job clubs, release groups, life skills groups and CAP Money Courses.
If you are in debt or know anyone who needs debt help, get in touch with CAP.
New Life partners with St Thomas’ Church in leading and running the Ark. This is a weekly meal at St Thomas’ Centre on Friday evening for adults who are homeless or vulnerably housed. It’s a place to seek shelter from the storms of life. We offer a warm, safe and friendly space to share the love of Jesus in words and action. Doors open on Fridays at 6pm and a delicious, hot meal is served from 6.30pm!
Jane Callow (New Life Outreach) heads this ministry up.
If you’d like to be part of this ministry, either helping to cook, serving food or talking to guests, please contact Jane by email.
