Genesis update – Jan 2023

Thank you for all your support and encouragement with the Christmas services which were so well received.

Genesis meets on Sundays normally at 10am in the Church Hall continuing until 10.45am. We then join the congregation in the church service to share our learning with them, for prayers, a short sermon and for singing. The service finishes around 11.15am so we can all leave together to enjoy fellowship over a drink and biscuit back in the Church Hall.

The Spring term programme up to Easter is shown below.
