What are these all about?
Creeds, etc. have been used to summarise the essential truths of the Christian Faith ever since the early church. They were often agreed upon to prevent error and answer false teaching. They are not a substitute for the Bible but based on it. The linked site (click on the graphic above) brings the main ones together and includes some interesting articles about them.

PLEASE NOTE: According to wikipedia, "Trivia refers to bits of information, often of little importance". The quiz is good and helpful, but the Bible definitely is not a collection of trivia, it is The Word of God

Sunday Evening at 6.30 pm - 27th May 2018
We had a most blessed visit from 
Pastors Mvula Mvula, Gift Mtintha
and Justice Chiphwany

Arranged by the Zambesi Mission
Pastors Mvula Mvula, Gift Mtintha and Justice Chiphwanya
The Zambesi Mission (zm) arranged for Pastors Mvula Mvula,
Gift Mtintha and Justice Chiphwanya to visit the UK
in May/June 2018. We were very pleased to have been invited to host them. 
zm aims to foster “partnerships in the Gospel” between Christians
and churches in the UK and their counterparts in Malawi and northern Mozambique.
They recognise that our partnership in the Gospel is not just a one-way relationship.
The aim of inviting church leaders from Malawi to visit churches in the UK is two-fold:
Firstly, they want to bring the partnership to life
by actually meeting leaders from the church in Malawi.
Secondly, as part of our interdependent relationship,
they/we wish to learn from God through our Malawian brothers in Christ.
zm believes that there are many ways in which the church
in this wealthy (and often materialistic) country can learn
from and receive spiritually from God through the church in Africa.

Tuesday 2nd May 2017
Missionary Evening & Prayer Meeting
with Mike Berry of the

Please see if God would have you support this exciting work in prayer, giving or some other way.
In a presentation Mike spoke from Philippians 1v3-11 & 2v19-29
about Partnership in the Gospel. 
What is partnership?
1—It is prayerful - the Philippians were praying for Paul and he was praying for them.
2—It is personal - Paul knew all about them through Epaphroditus (their messenger).
It is practical - only the Philippians sent a messenger to Paul to help.
