Tempo - Sunday 4th March 2018

This Sunday

Andy Sparkes will be preaching from

John 15:12-17 “Nurturing Friendships”

Nurturing Friendships

As part of our Altar Ego series, this morning we'll be looking at “Nurturing Friendship”. Over the years our home groups have played an important part in helping us do just that. There's no intention to change that, but we should recognise that 'one size doesn't always fit all' - with some people unable to attend due to other commitments, or perhaps feeling more comfortable sharing in a smaller group, etc. Accordingly, we want to explore additional options that everyone could plug in to if they wish. For example - study groups, men’s groups, women’s groups, triplets, special interest groups, mission groups, discipleship groups, task-oriented groups – you name it! But importantly, groups in which we can further ‘Nurture Friendship’, deepen relationships, provide support and be accountable to one another. If you’re interested in discussing more about this, come along tomorrow night Monday, 5th March,
7:30pm at the Graig
- it would be great to have your input. 

Men’s Fellowship Breakfast

10th March 9.30am at Temple Gelliwastad will be continuing our six part series of 'first man standing' and also we may have a sprinkling of rugby angles as the Six Nations is in full swing.

Easter Cracked

The presentation of the Easter story to year 5/6 students from local primary schools will take place here in Temple from Monday 19/3 to Thursday 22/3.  This is an inspiring time for the children & teachers together with those who lead and help out with the programme.  Wayne Adams is building his team – please contact him to register an interest or for more information, particularly if you have not been involved before.
