Prayer Triplets

Over the coming weeks we would like to set up prayer triplets across the church, with as many participating as possible. A prayer triplet is a group of three people who meet regularly to pray and share together. They're a great way of helping us deepen friendships, build our prayer lives, and provide support and encouragement to one another. If you would like to be part of a triplet, please see Andy.  

Baptismal Service

There will be a baptismal service here at Temple on the morning of Sunday 15 April.  If you are considering this important step for yourself then please speak to Wayne Adams about it.
