Invitation to all in Epsom

Service to Commemorate the 500th Anniversary of the Reformation

At 6.30 pm on Sunday, 29th October, we are holding a special service to commemorate the 500th anniversary of the Reformation. 

It was on 31st October 1517 that Martin Luther posted the 95 Theses on the doors of the Castle Church in Wittenberg, which started the rapid progress of the early years of the Reformation in Germany and beyond.

The preacher at the Service will be the Very Revd Andris Abakuks who is Dean of the Latvian Lutheran Church in this country and an Epsom resident.

 

Very Revd Andris Abakuks

The Service 6.30 pm at St Martin's Epsom will include Communion in a Lutheran setting, there will be some enthusiastic hymn-singing, as you would expect.

All are welcome

Lionheart - Courageous for God

Calling all Christian Men,

You are invited to a new, exciting & pioneering men’s event entitled “LIONHEART – Courageous for God” -

 

an evening for men from over 80 churches in the Surrey Area.

 

This event will be held at Reigate Baptist Church on Saturday,

 

11th November 2017 from 7 pm onwards.
 

In a world pressurising men to conformity & timidity, this LIONHEART event will present men with an evening of encountering God through teaching and worship. It will focus on how men can practically:

  •        develop a courageous Godly character in the 21st Century;

  •        Lead a life to which God is calling men and

  •        Inspire us to quietly make a difference in everyday lives.

With seven churches working together on this event, James Collins preaching and Matt Kefford leading worship - we’re praying that at least 250 men will attend.

Homeless Project – Hope in Action

6th November at 7.30 Kings Church, Gibraltar Crescent, Epsom are hosting a meeting to discuss how the churches of Epsom might be able to help the homeless in Epsom. This has been a subject which local Christians have been looking at over the last year but so far it has been difficult to make any concrete progress.

Ed Walker, the Founder of Hope into Action which is a Christian charity will speak on how that charity helps the homeless and how Epsom can get involved.

Everyone with a concern for the homeless, also a concern to work with others is welcome to this meeting.
