This Sunday we will be meeting for our family service at 10.30am at The Littlehampton Academy, continuing our new series ‘Under Construction: God is Building Here‘ the topic this week is ‘Be Led’.

The Chapel will be available for parents with babies and toddlers this week.

Please be aware that each Sunday, as we meet in a public building, Arun Community Church cannot accept responsibility for your children’s safety during, before or after the meeting apart from during supervised activities. Pack down can also be particularly hazardous with the removal of heavy equipment. Please do not allow your children up onto the balcony level in the Atrium as this is out of bounds. Thank you.

Expand

Admin —  February 24, 2017

Our next Expand session is Tuesday 7th March when we’ll be looking at our theme for this year ‘Under Construction: God is Building Here’ and what our values are as a church. As a leadership team we sat down to consider and pray about what we felt were the most important values in representing what God has called us to in this place and time. These are: God First – Passionate – Brave – Generous – Together

We’re keen to continue our conversation as a church community around what these values look like in practice and hear everyone’s thoughts. To assist this each Expand will look at one or two of these values, with a panel of four people answering questions and a time for us all to talk together. Please come and join in the discussion, the more of us who are there the better we can really start to grow together.

The evening starts at 7.30pm with an opportunity to grab a coffee from Refresh, with the talk starting at 8pm.

Please make the last Expand evening a priority in your diary: 21st March.
