Exploring Baptism!

LZ Concert - MAJOR Christian Youth Event in Wokingham for 2019  Come and find out how you can be involved:
Sunday 27th January 7pm at Wokingham Baptist Church
This is a major initiative and needs the support of our churches, both leaders and volunteers
LZ7 are a contemporary Christian band of the highest quality who will be coming to Wokingham for a week in October. They will be visiting several Wokingham Secondary Schools leading sessions on contemporary issues for young people, following up with a major concert event at the end of the week. We are hoping that many young people will make a response to find out more about Jesus and the Christian faith, and the task of follow-up presents a major opportunity for us as churches.
At this meeting on Jan 27th members of the band will talk about the week, and there will be information about how churches and volunteers can help to make it happen. Please put the date in your diary and plan to come along!
 
EASTER EXPERIENCEis taking place on 27th to 29th March. We are expecting a record number of year 6 children and their accompanying adults to visit the church to hear the Easter story.
We will therefore need many volunteers to help with this important event which is a tremendous outreach opportunity. There are many ways in which you can help. If this is new to you or if you have any questions or would like to volunteer, please speak to Nick, Sue Chapman or Helen Craig. There will also be an information/training evening nearer the time.
