SUNDAY 24 DECEMBER - A time to bring friends as we celebrate Christmas. Our final Urban@5 gathering for 2017.

Blue Christmas Service

For many, the holidays can be a difficult time. In the midst of the surrounding celebrations, some of us feel the loss of a loved one, or are struggling with things like illness, broken relationships, finances or loneliness. Blue Christmas is a gentle, reflective service where grief, pain or disappointment can be acknowledged and offered to God - providing an opportunity to experience His compassion, comfort and healing. We invite you to join us for a 45-minute service with scripture readings, prayers, communion, candle-lighting and space to reflect in your own way. After the service there will be an opportunity to have somebody pray with you if you would like. All are welcome.

urban groups

We’re better together! We’ve been created by God for community, and our Urban groups are an easy way to connect with each other and build deeper relationships.  Just contact one of our leaders today - see their details below.
