On the weekend 14 to 16 March 2014, 21 of us went to visit our partner church at Middelkerke, near Ostende in Belgium.   We traveled by ferry, Dover to Dunkirk, and from there it was an easy drive to Middelkerke.  What a welcome we received, and with a great meal!  On Saturday we visited Poperinghe, to see the Headquarters of TOC H, where soldiers were able to go for a break from the frontline in World War One.  We went on to Ypres, so this was quite appropriate in view of this year's centenary celebrations.  We slept overnight at the church centre, joined in worship together on Sunday, then drove back to Dunkirk and the ferry to England.  A great weekend!

Together

The picture of Alison serving soup in the Soup Hub kitchen shown above is the one that has also been used to illustrate the article featuring her in the Baptist Unions' Together Magazine.

Chelmsford 24-7

As a church we believe in the power of prayer and that it makes a difference in situations and circumstances. We are part of Chelmsford 24-7 Prayer, joining with Christians from across our City to pray for the things God lays on our hearts. Please follow this link for more information about how you and your church can get involved: https://chelmsford24-7.org/. Plans for the near future at Springfield Park involve the setting up of a new prayer space and prayer walks around our local area. Watch this space for developments.
