Holy Week and Easter

Second Sunday

SSlogo01aIt’s Second Sunday this week

Join us for worship, learning and lunch

We change our programme a little every second Sunday of the month at DBC. We start as usual at 10.30am with worship but our service is shorter and is for all ages. Creche space is available but we invite the children and young people to stay in with us. Young Church happens later, at 11.45, after a coffee break. The adults and young people also meet together at this time for a teaching and learning session. This week we will be discussing Christ and other faiths. After that we have a bring-and-share lunch. So the schedule this Sunday will be:
10.30 all age worship
11.15 tea and coffee
11.45 teaching and learning session and Young Church
12.30 bring-and-share lunch
Please feel free to join us for any or all these activities.

Holy Monday at Didsbury Cross

Churches Working Together in Didsbury have erected a cross on the land next to Caffe Nero in Didsbury. This week is Holy Week and each day there will be a gathering at the cross at 1pm for a few minutes of prayerful reflection. A few of us met there for the first time today. The photo shows part of the group; I recognise people from four different churches in our area. Further details of this week’s programme can be found on the CWTiD website. If you are in the area and free at 1pm on any day of this week, please join us; you would be very welcome.

Pat Took at Didsbury Baptist Church

We are greatly looking forward to the visit of Pat Took to DBC tomorrow. Pat is President of the Baptist Union of Great Britain 2011-12 and former Regional Minister of the London Baptist Association. She will be speaking at two events as part of the week-long celebration of the opening of our newly refurbished building.

First, Pat will address a luncheon meeting for ministers, clergy and church leaders. This will take place from 12 noon – if you would like to attend, please drop me a line at robet@didsburybaptistchurch.org.uk.

In the evening, Pat will speak at an evening celebration to which all are welcome. If you would like to attend, just turn up for 7.30; we would be very pleased to see you.

Songs of Praise

As a curtain closer for Didsbury Arts Festival, Churches Working Together in Didsbury will be joining together for a Songs of Praise evening at Christ Church, West Didsbury (Corner of Darley Avenue and Princess Road) tomorrow evening. Each church will introduce a favourite hymn. We will sing and worship God together and afterwards refreshments will be served. If you are near Didsbury on Sunday why not join us? All are welcome.
