Our recent Charities Fayre brought many people through our doors. Some of the charities that meet on our premises had stalls and raised money for their organisations. The church organised refreshments including hot dogs, cake and bric a brac stalls in aid of ‘Commitment for Life’, Christian Aid projects supported by the URC.
We are so happy to announce that Alison Davis will be joining us and our sister church, Bexley URC as our new minister. The induction service will be on May 17th. Everyone is looking forward to welcoming Alison to our fellowship. In the meantime we pray for her and the fellowships she will be leaving in Norwich.

It’s Easter, but not as you know it
The Windermere Centre has been privileged to be part of a special online Easter service organised by The Big Bible Project. The service is being broadcast on Easter Sunday from 2pm, and includes a sermon by Rowan Williams – and a meditation on John 20:1-18 by our very own Lawrence Moore, as well as songs, readings and prayers from many other contributors. It’s pretty exciting to see how church adapts to the digital age (we’re so interested in that idea, we’ve a whole strand of courses in our Programme about it!), and the Online Praise Easter 2013 service has been a great chance for us to be part of something new and stimulating.
You can access the service from anywhere in the world as long as you have an internet connection – just head over to the website: http://onlinepraise.wordpress.com – and you can follow the #easter13 hashtag on Twitter, too, to find out more. Hope you enjoy the service – The Windermere Centre would love to hear your thoughts!

We are celebrating the 400th anniversary of the King James Bible by taking up the E100 challenge. Together with our friends from Christ Church we are studying 100 carefully selected, essential, short Bible verses or passages – 50 from the Old Testament and 50 from the New Testament. We are having 3 joint meetings to support each other in meeting the challenge as well as two lectures during Lent.
We have all heard at some time or maybe said ourselves things like “I’ve read bits of the Bible but I don’t really know how they fit together” or “I love the Bible. I’d like some help to understand it better and how it applies to my life today.” and also “I’ve never read the Bible much but I’m interested in finding out more of what’s in it”
If this is how you feel and you are too far away to join us find out more here.
If you are near to us and would like to join in please email John .
