Holiday Club / Sports Reach
During the Easter and Summer school holidays, we open up the school for a few days to run a holiday club. Sometimes there are over 100 children attending.
The kids have sports, games, craft and a bible message each day and a big presentation on the last day showing their skills to the parents.
This year we teamed up with Sports Reach and ran a soccer and netball school for almost 50 kids during the Easter holiday.

In June, Brixworth Community Church held it’s second men’s breakfast of the Year. After the most amazing free cooked breakfast, Prof Chris Collins from John Moore’s University answered the question, ‘The world we live in: randomly evolved or intelligently designed?’ The Olive Branch Coffee Shop was full to capacity and Chris (Head of research of Astro-physics) spoke really well on a very interesting topic. Chris concluded (with stunning photos) that there is strong evidence for intelligent design. Perhaps the Christian faith, and science do not have to be at odds with each other after all? The Church will be looking to run another men’s breakfast come October, keep an eye out for the details.

Good Friday Walk of Witness 2019
Good Friday saw us join with Brixworth’s All Saints Church to remember the Crucifixion of Jesus. Why Good? Friday, you might ask. It is Good because by Jesus dying it meant that we ordinary folk who believe in Him can ask through prayer to have our sins taken away. So when we die we will spend eternity with Him.
We met outside the Library and heard a Bible reading about Jesus’s crucifixion then sang an Easter hymn, before walking behind a cross to the Pound green where again we heard a Bible reading and sang. Then walked on to the Church where we met outside with 3 symbolic crosses where Rev. Chloe and Pastor Andy shared with us the Easter story and gave us opportunity to write a confession of something in our lives that needed forgiveness, and literally nail it to the centre cross as we asked God for forgiveness. Afterwards we repaired to the Church Hall for Hot Cross buns and a warm drink.
On Remembrance Day we all meet at the Community Centre and march in procession together with the Scouts, Beavers, Cubs, Girl Guides, U3A and other organisations to All Saints Church.
This is in honour of the brave men and women of our armed forces who have fallen in the various conflicts around the world.
At All Saints Church, there is a combined service between our Pastor and the Vicar of All Saints and then afterwards a ceremony of laying wreaths of poppies and small crosses is held at the War Memorial in the churchyard.
Samaritans Purse Shoe Boxes
Things have changed this year for us with the shoebox appeal, we are now a drop off point. People can still leave their shoeboxes at the community centre as normal, but the boxes will now be processed in Coventry. This is still a great cause that helps millions of children across the world. Big thanks to you all, we hope you will continue to support this worthy course.
Christmas Outdoor Nativity December 15th 2019
One Sunday, before Christmas, the church holds a Nativity outside the Community Centre/Library with several hundred people attending. Last year the Police blocked the road and diverted traffic for safety.
The program varies but includes music, carols, Bible reading, sermons and a costumed drama with church members and several children as the cast. We usually have the loan of a donkey for realism. Please watch your step afterwards.
If you would like more information, please contact Andy or one of the Leadership Team at one of the above locations.
