Prayer Focus

Please pray for:

Our Advent outreach events.  Please useour Corps Diary to pray for each event, asking God to bless and use all that we do in His name in the lead up to Christmas.

For those who are homeless; those who need shelter, warmth and love

The families in need, who will receive our support through the gift appeal 

All those connected with our fellowship who are unwell, in hospital or undergoing treatment just now and for those who have family concerns


Home Groups

Home Groups are open to everyone.

Each group consists of around ten people who attend the corps (church) on a regular basis.

The primary purpose of a Home Group is to set aside time to be with others for friendship and fellowship, to explore the Bible and pray.

Please contact us for more details
