Well, Christmas and the New Year are on their way again and things will look a little different at Barney’s during that period, so here’s what to expect over the next few weeks:
Wednesday 25th December – there will be no service at Barney’s on Christmas Day, but all are invited to a Christmas Day lunch from about 12pm. A great chance to invite friends along.
Sunday 29th December – no gathering at Barney’s but we are invited to join with Newnham Baptist as they gather at the Heritage Forest for worship followed by a BBQ and games from 10am. BYO lunch / BBQ
Sunday 5th January – Gathering at Barney’s with communion, 10am.
Sunday 12th January – Joint gathering at Newnham Baptist Church, entrance from the Coles car park, Mowbray, 10am
Sunday 19th January – Church on the Beach with Newnham Baptist, followed by BYO BBQ / picnic lunch, Lagoon Beach, Low Head, 10.30am.
Sunday 26th January – Joint Gathering with Newnham Baptist at Barney’s, 10am.
One of the main reasons for these changes is that at Barney’s we try to keep January as a season of rest. That means our gatherings are low-key and there is no Sunday Kids programme. This gives everyone usually involved in making Sunday gatherings happen a well-earned break, ready for the year ahead. From 2nd February, our Sunday gatherings will return to normal. We look forward to sharing the summer with you!
