Kids Worship

Join us in St Helen’s at 3.30pm for fun, informal worship with songs, stories and craft. Especially suitable for primary age children and smaller siblings, but all are welcome.

This week refreshments in the Chancel return before the service.

Living in Love and Faith – discussion after the 10am Service Sunday 27th Feb.
Join us at our 10am service next week and stay afterwards to join a discuss led by Bishop John on the Church of England’s excellent resource on human identity, relationships, marriage and sexuality.  This might not be something you normally discuss over coffee, but these are huge issues facing the church and society and it would be good to be well informed.
The discussion will be from approx 11:15 and will finish by 12:15pm

Wheathampstead Churches Together is pleased to be able to offer an “in-person” Lent course again this year, with sessions held at each of the three churches in the village. The course will be based on material from Inclusive Church which is designed for groups to explore how churches can welcome and include everyone regardless of issues such as disability, mental health, sexuality, poverty, ethnicity and gender.

The course is made up of six sessions.  A choice of times and venues is offered.  The course will begin after Ash Wednesday (March 2nd) and will end before Easter (April 17th). If you are interested in attending, please sign up by clicking here to indicate your preferred day/time slot. You can also sign up via paper forms in church.
