Sunday 21 October 2018

Could this be you? We’re offering two great opportunities to work with us in delivering our vision of ‘loving God, making disciples and transforming communities’. Both are part-time midweek positions and might be possible as mainly term-time based roles 1) Approx 10 hours a week developing and organising small groups, home groups, evangelism and integration of new people into this lovely church family. 2) The opening of the Old Rectory means that we have more activity going on (already!) so we are reorganising how the office and admin works. We’re offering a new approx. 8 hour a week admin support position. The roles could be for one person (combined c18hrs a week) or be treated as two roles. Speak to Simon if you are interested in finding out more about either or both roles.

We’re updating our email contact list of home group and connect (all the small groups) group leaders so that we can communicate with leaders effectively and get feedback on things. If you are a home group leader or lead a small group please email Simon so we can build this confidential list.

A reminder that there is a Prime Time event taking place on Wednesday 24th October at the Old Rectory commencing at 2.00pm. Alan Betts will be sharing some of his knowledge and expertise in an interactive talk about trees and local woodland. Contact the Prime Time Team at the Church office or email to let us know you are coming.

Our annual Memorial Service will be held on Saturday 3rd November at 3.00pm in Busbridge Church. All are welcome. Letters of invitation have been sent to people bereaved within the last two years and to anyone else who has requested a letter.  f you would like someone remembered by name at the service, spare copies of the letter are available at the back of both churches. Please help yourself to one and return it to Margot via the church office. Thank you!

Superhero Sunday  is happening in the Busbridge Contemporary on 28th October where we’ll be looking at Psalm 139:1-7 and how Jesus is our Superhero! Dust off your superhero costumes, or come as you are as we have an whole church family service (no children’s groups but crèche will run as normal during the service).

Busbridge Church Centre will be transformed into a giant advent calendar again this December. To make this happen, we need 24  x A3 pictures with Christmas related themes. All different varieties of picture are welcome - you don't need to be artistic to take part. For more details or to contribute a picture please email

BHC is planning on running an Alpha Course in the New Year. There will be opportunities for all kinds of involvement, whatever you feel comfortable and capable of committing to: praying regularly, providing food, helping in a group, setting up, clearing up, providing music, marketing skills, leaflet drops, whatever, there’ll be a role for you! So, if you’re interested in helping out do let Paul Ridsdale-Smith know, on And of course, do start to think about who you will invite to come along.
