Obviously the best way to get started is by coming to one of our Sunday Services. Our main service is at 7pm (though we don’t really get started until 7.10). It is friendly and accessible with great music and preaching.
But after that there are lots of ways to get stuck into the community:
The main way we stay in touch is via the egroup – our email mailing list. It is a group not a newsletter, so everyone can contribute. We use a Gmail egroup and you can join up here.
Home Groups are the best way to get involved and start to belong. They meet all around Islington on Wednesday nights; small groups that meet to eat, to pray, to study the Bible and to share lives. Find out more on the Homegroups page or talk to Bill or Mark if you would like to join one.
We work alongside the three other churches in Barnsbury parish to provide fun, Bible-centred activites for children of all ages. The parish employs a full-time children’s worker to co-ordinate what we do.
We also help to run several holiday clubs and activities in the area, particularly on the nearby Bemerton housing estate.
Little Ark is a preschool that runs in the church during the week. To find out more about them click here.
We are involved in a number of the local schools, doing assemblies and leading small groups. We are always happy for opportunities to visit local schools.
In the winter months we help to run a cold weather shelter for people sleeping rough in the area, in co-ordination with Caris Islington. We provide a hot meal and overnight accommodation in All Saints church.
Giving to Church
We don’t do collections, and you won’t find yourself pestered for money. However giving is an important aspect of our discipleship. We are entirely funded by the committed giving of our members. Talk to our Treasurer Anthony Codling to find out more about giving or click here for details.
