The current theme is 'A' for Ask based on the P.R.A.Y acronym in the book ‘How to Pray’ by Pete Greig.  The room includes 3 walls with resources to help us reflect on issues for ourselves, for others we know and for those we do not know but are in need. Why not come and enjoy some peace and quiet as well as a stop for refreshment and a chat with others manning the marquee in the church car park?
You can book to come at other times if you cannot make it on Fridays – please contact the church office.
Building work on the Worship Area and Resources Room is starting and these areas are now out of bounds. Please do not access GBC through the side entrance opposite Brian Searle's garage.
