We had a great evening on Friday the 7th of June with another Exploring Beauty and Faith evening. With good company, laughter, cheese, wine and nibbles we had a great time exploring what the Bible has to say about inner beauty, character and personality.
Our next Exploring Beauty and Faith evening is July 5th and will explore peace and rest. We hope to see you there.
A great time was had by all at our Worship Team night out where bowling and a curry were the order of the day. There were some very close scores for the bowling though some debate over the use of bumpers…. However finishing off with a curry made for a great evening!
Over the Easter holidays, we will be opening our doors for a packed afternoon of food, fun, crafts and games – all focused on the Easter story as outlined in The Holy Bible. Our weekly free community lunch is being extended to include activities for the whole family!
Grandparents, are you looking after your Grandchildren? Parents, are you struggling to find something to keep the kids busy? Well between 12-3pm on 17th April, we have a number of activities going on and it’s all free! There will be lunch, refreshments, crafts, activities, quizzes and prizes. There will also be an opportunity to reflect on the story of Jesus.
Everyone is welcome, we look forward to seeing you!
We had a great time on Sunday 17th February. Who would have known that it could be so hard to hit a ball with a big stick…. Of course it was all made easier by having ‘The Master’ Mark Flanagan (pictured right) on hand to give us some of his many years of wisdom and advice. Apparently he used to be good at golf 😉.

World Day of Prayer Friday 1 March, 10:30 am Shirley Baptist Church
“Come – everything is ready” is the title for this service written by the women of Slovenia for the World Day of Prayer. As part of Shirley Churches Together we join with others across the globe for this hour-long service of worship, prayer and reflection. This year hosted by Shirley Baptist. All are welcome and refreshments will be served following the service.
Our weekly, term time group is as popular as ever. Every Wednesdays 1:15-2:45pm Mum’s, Grandparents and Dad’s you are welcome to come along with your baby and experience and interactive fun time together, with lite refreshments and great conversation.
Being Ready for Now was the title of this year’s conference inspired by Esther 4:14. Christian Life Coach Karen Van Der Poll was our guest facilitator as we explored our Purpose, Passion and Potential and Dream Planning to enable us to go deeper with God and in pursuing our calling.
Over 70 ladies attended the event with an Esther banquet style lunch, worship, teaching and group discussions. See the video below for highlights from the day.
Friday Night we re launched our Men’s Ministry, no messing no fuss we called it SCF MEN! We had a great night with 30 or so blokes as we shared where we thought God was calling us to focus. Our desire is to see men building relationship with one another while growing in their walk with Jesus. We are serious about doing that and we often do it around food, curry to be exact!!!!!!!
However, it does not stop there, we want to also reach out to our friends who do not know Jesus and simply build relationships with them. For us at SCF the starting point is to form friendships and not bible bash. In fact our first few social events should be simply that social.
