Living In worship

A worshipping and praying community - Where we acknowledge that our most basic reason for living is to give glory to God in all we do. Where we are free to express our love and devotion to him and where we can draw closer to him in worship, praise and thanksgiving. Where prayer becomes part of the fabric of our lives, personally and corporately. Where we are constantly learning, experimenting and practising how to pray and are inspired by a fuller understanding of God's will, leading to personal change and a renewed passion to see God's Kingdom become visible all around us.

Ministry Reports from the last AGM (April 24th) are available here for reference.

MINISTRY REPORTS

Sunday Services

Sunday mornings at ACC are the main time we gather as a whole community to worship God together, learn together through inspired Bible teaching and share our lives together. The services include times of mainly contemporary praise & worship, a brief slot for the children, intercessory prayers and then about 30 minutes of practical Bible teaching. We welcome anyone to join us for this time to listen to the voice of God, receive some inspiration for our lives and encourage one another as we face the many challenges of modern life. Afterwards we encourage everyone not to rush away but to join us in the cafe area for tea, coffee, biscuits and a chat.

During the latter part of the service there is a Creche, a Sunday School for nursery to P7 age children, and a Bible Class for S1 – S4’s

Prayer Ministry

Prayer is an important part of the life of our church and we seek to meet together regularly to pray. Our prayer meetings often take different forms from silent reflection and meditation to guided prayer and petitioning for our church, our loved ones, our community and our world.
Prayer is also a key part in our small groups. We meet as a whole church once a month when our small groups come together. Keep an eye on our Small Groups page to know where to join us.

“It is the discipline of prayer that brings us into the deepest and highest work of the human spirit. Real prayer is life creating and life changing… To pray is to change. Prayer is the central avenue God uses to transform us.” – Richard Foster, Celebration of Discipline

We meet corporately for prayer as a church every other Wednesday and when we join in our small groups.

Our prayer meetings can take various forms in an attempt to help everyone engage in prayer in a way that is both comfortable and engaging.As a group we are often led to pray for our world, for our city, for our local communities, for each other, seeking God for more of himself, and for the power and presence of his Spirit as we seek to listen to and follow him.

In this post, Ian Kenji shares his views on the nature and importance of prayer.

Finding Hope (12 Hours of Prayer)

“Those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength” Isaiah 40:31
Here are some images from our 12 hour prayer event on Saturday 8th of June. The event was held in the hope that this space would help people to receive the hope that God has for us for everyday of our lives on earth, as well as for eternity to come.

Messy Church

WHAT
Messy Church began at St Wilfred’s Church near Portsmouth in 2004. It has spread across the country and among different Christian denominations. It was set up as a means of sharing the love if God with families who do not always relate to ‘traditional’ church.

Messy Church here at ACC aims to provide a safe environment where people of all backgrounds can come together and experience the love of God.

Messy Church is for all ages, it brings people together to learn about Jesus in a practical way. There are stories, games, crafts, songs and, importantly, food! We have fun chatting together as we make things, play and relax. We celebrate life together and conclude with a meal.

It’s Free, Fun and Food for All!
WHERE AND WHEN

Due to a lack of numbers attending, we have decided not to run Messy Church on a regular basis just now. We are still considering arranging some special events at Christmas and Easter so watch this space for more information or check out our Messy Church Facebook page.
