The 11.30am service - The Gathering - at Epping is now on hold for the foreseeable future.
After six months of trialling the Gathering, a decision has been made to put it on hold for now. While originally designed to reach those in the local community, the integration into the first service has meant there is not a need for it at this time. We are exploring ways to begin a monthly evening service to reach a new generation of people. Stay tuned for more details.
Sunday 1st December, 9.30am
at Epping & Newcastle
Practices will start soon for the Kids Church Christmas drama.
Please let Pastor Mark or Mat know by 27th October if your young person wants to play a role in this.
Come and join us as we gather together in prayer for God’s church and the community of Newcastle at our monthly prayer meeting

Ever been in a situation where the person talking to you speaks right over your head? It's a language you understand but what they are talking about may just as well be in a foreign language, because you haven't got a clue what they mean.
There's a reason that Jesus stuck to agricultural references and other everyday concepts when he wanted to communicate truth to people. There's a reason that Jesus told stories to try and win over a culture who worked with their hands to make a living.
Images are powerful. A story is sticky. They are easy to remember. They engage the heart and the mind. Most of all they are relatable.
So join us for a 5 week sermon series, beginning Sunday 29 September, as we look at five simple images that will have you saying: “I can relate to that” as Jesus comes to relate to you.
