An evening on the Communion of Saints

Saints evening 500x

This is the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity (18-25 January). To celebrate this, we are to host an evening on the Communion of Saints on Tuesday 20 Jan at 7.30pm. All are welcome to attend what we hope will be an open and ecumenical conversation. Brian Haymes and Richard Kidd, co-authors, with Paul Fiddes, of Baptists and the Communion of Saints will help us to think about a neglected doctrine not usually associated with Baptists. Please join us if you can and bring your questions!

Advent Wednesdays at DBC

iStock_000011091735XSmallPlease join us if you can for any of the first three Wednesdays of December at DBC. We will begin with a meal followed by an act of worship. We will eat at 6.30pm and meet (promptly) at 8.00pm. If you are planning to eat with us, it would help if you let us know ahead of time. If you are turning up for the worship, please arrive a little early (say, by 7.45) so that we can start the worship on time – there will be a cup of tea or coffee going if you would like one before we start. The worship themes will be as follows:

Wednesday 3 December:
Watching and Waiting

Wednesday 10 December:
Listening

Wednesday 17 December:
Darkness and Light

On Wednesday 24 December we will hold our Carols by Candlelight service at 6.30pm; we would love to see you there.
