Holy Habits in HAEBEA

holy-habits-haebeaHOLY HABITS in HAEBEA

The churches of North Weald, Chipping Ongar and Epping (High Street and Lindsey Street), are benefitting from Andrew Roberts' book 'Holy Habits' (published by Malcolm Down Publishing). The book challenges Christians to adopt a lifestyle of faith based upon the habits of early Christians in the Acts of the Apostles.

By way of an introduction to discipleship last autumn, Revd Cecil White, had successfully rolled out three duplicate sessions across each of the four churches. Now, in 2019, he continues with three themed studies on 'the Apostles' teaching', 'fellowship', and 'the breaking of bread'. He says, "These sessions are best suited to small groups and the way I am programming it is so as not to create weekly study groups for ever, but to do bite-sized studies with breaks in between."

All welcome at Leaside

Leaside-ware-new-exterior-2018Leaside Church and Community Centre in Ware recently marked the completion of its £800,000 building project with a weekend of celebrations. People came from near and far to admire the improvements which have transformed the existing buildings, creating the opportunity for Leaside to extend its outreach through more activities for children, the elderly and other community organisations.  Leaside Under Fives Kindergarten, Dance Jam Academy, the Listening Place, Herts Welcomes Syrian Families, and Leaside’s art, craft and exercise classes all set up displays in the Hall to publicise their activities.

A crowd gathered to watch Mark Prisk MP officially open the Centre on the Saturday afternoon. In declaring the Centre open, Mr Prisk said “This is a brilliant link between Church and Community for everyone in Ware.”
