OASIS.Life.Rhythm.Spirit

By | News

We had an AMAZING day in the Brighthelm Gardens last Saturday 3rd August when Brighton Pride was on in the city.  We had a drum circle, dancing, face painting and glitter art, spiritual readings and dream interpretations.  There was a hive of activity all around the gardens, with many people visiting the city, some for the first time!

There was such an atmosphere of peace in the gardens, and a lot of JOY, love and colour released 🙂

It was great to have lots of help for this event – and a BIG thank you to all the Essence course attendees (from Movement in Worship) who put their training into practice, sharing God’s love with the public.

Take a look at some of the days photos… our NEXT OASIS is on Saturday 7th September, 11am – 4pm – See you there

Core Values at City Gate Church

By | News

Last Sunday we started our year by recapping City Gate Church’s Core Values, a focus for our teaching during 2019.

Take a look at some of the canvases that we started illustrating. It was great discussing the importance of what we value!

– Lives devoted to God
– Fellowship and community living
– Growing Church
– Unity
– Giving
– Our local community for God
– Embracing the least and the lost

We also spent time thanking God for the New year and taking Communion together!

Next Sunday 20th January, we have visiting speaker Kath Jones from Southwater Community Methodist Church joining us, to talk about ‘Giving’ and sharing her insights to one of our Core Values!

Alpha Course Coming Up!

By | News

We believe that everyone should have the chance to explore the Christian faith, ask questions and share their point of view – wherever they are in the world.

What is Alpha?

Alpha is a series of sessions exploring the Christian faith, which City Gate Church are running at The Dip from Monday 17th September – Monday 19th November, 8.00-9.45pm.

 

Each talk looks at a different question around faith and is designed to create conversation. Alpha is run all around the globe, and everyone is welcome.  No two Alphas look the same, but generally they have three key things in common: food/refreshments, a talk and good conversation.

 

First up there’s

Food/Refreshments

Whether it’s a group of friends gathered around a kitchen table, or a quick catch up over coffee and cake, food has a way of bringing people together, building community and getting to know each other.. It’s no different at Alpha. Our sessions will start with tea, coffee, cake & biscuits!

Then a

Talk

The talks are designed to engage and inspire conversation. Usually around 20-30 minutes long, they will be given as a live talk. They explore the big issues around faith and unpack the basics of Christianity, addressing questions from Who is Jesus? and How can we have faith? to Why and how do I pray? and How does God guide us?

Followed by

Discussion

Probably the most important part of any Alpha: the chance to share thoughts and ideas on the topic, and simply discuss it in a small group. There’s no obligation to say anything and there’s nothing you can’t say (seriously). It’s an opportunity to hear from others and contribute your own perspective in an honest, friendly and open environment.

Please get in touch if you would like any further information or let us know if you’re planning on coming, by emailing office@nullcitygatechurch.org.uk

We hope to see you there! 🙂
