COMMON PEOPLE UNITED WITH GOD AND EACH OTHER
Here’s what our services over the next few weeks will look like. On Christmas Day there are plenty of churches in Hamilton that will be putting on amazing services – feel free to check one out. Our covenant service on Jan 7th is a short service but important in the life of our community. It’s where we kick off 2018 by openly committing to the journey of faith together for another year. That service will begin with brunch at 10am, followed by a simple liturgy and a couple of reflective elements. Bring food to share and we’ll supply drinks.
ST FRANCIS COMMUNITY CHURCH HALL
92 Mansel Ave
WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT:
Our Sunday gatherings are our focused time to honour God. Through our worship we submit ourselves back into God’s presence and continually retell the story of Christ. In worship we are recreated by the Spirit, and from there we head back out to see the sacred presence and work of God in the people and places around us throughout our daily lives; to talk about it, celebrate it, and participate in it.
Our Sunday gatherings take around an hour, give or take a little. Children are with us for the whole gathering to worship with their parents. We provide a space with colouring activities.
Our worship gatherings are structured around a simple liturgy, scripture readings (following the Revised Common Lectionary), prayer, and they culminate in our practice of Holy Communion together, along with a time of personal and communal reflection using worship stations that are suitable for young and old.
We enjoy times of silence in our services.
We encourage people to spend time together for lunch afterwards in each others homes.
Parking: St Francis Community Church meet in their main sanctuary at 9:30am. Feel free to take any available parks or park on the road for our gathering at 10:00am in the church hall next to the main sanctuary.
WE LOOK FORWARD TO SEEING YOU THERE
