Sunday: 8:30am, 10:30am, 6:00pm
Sunday services are the most important time of the week for us because we get to gather together and encourage one another around God’s word. All are welcome at all of our services, however our morning services intentionally cater for children with a kids’ talk, kids’ song, creche and Sunday school during the Bible talk
Prayer meetings happen during school term in the church hall. The apostle Paul said to:
Pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the Lord’s people. Ephesians 6:18
Prayer is really central to our mission at Willows as we seek to make disciples of all nations. Feel free to join us each week as we pray for various aspects of the life of our church and the world. We also publish our prayer points weekly in our Facebook group.
Various ages, various nights
Our growth groups meet throughout the year and they are an opportunity for you to dig deeper into the Bible than we do on Sundays and to dig deeper into our relationships with each other than we do on Sundays. Our growth groups are primarily where the pastoral care at church happens—so if you’re not in one, get on board by contacting the church office and we’ll help find a group that best suits you.
Anyone over 50
Apart from being involved in growth groups and the rest of church life we have regular gatherings for our over 50s. Sometimes we just catch up for a social event, other times we consider the call of God’s word on our lives. If you’re over 50 you’re welcome to join us.
