New Mission Statement…

Our new Mission Statement is:

‘Welcoming Everyone, Following Jesus, Sharing LIfe’

Please pray at 10:10 each day that we will fulfil this mission (in John 10:10 Jesus said ‘I have come to give you life in all its fullness’)

This term’s theme – Transformed Living

Jesus Christ transforms our lives! This term we will be seeing what this means in practice as we explore the second part of the book of Ephesians.

Men’s Breakfast – Saturday 23rd April

Calling all men! You are invited to a very special men’s breakfast at St. Alban’s on Saturday 23rd April.

We will be sharing a hearty Full English breakfast and welcoming famous entrepreneur, Gary Grant, to speak with us about how he built his multi-million pound business without losing his soul.

Gary built one toy shop into ‘The Entertainer’ toy shop chain, a £129million turnover business, generating £6million profits from almost 120 stores and online trading. What’s more impressive though is that he built this business without sacrificing his Christian values and often flying in the face of perceived retail wisdom…

Time: 8.15am – 10.00am

To book contact Richard Maybury (01428 604072) rwmaybury@gmail.com

Come and get well fed and inspired!
