Student Welcome Events
We're welcoming our new students to Durham with some special events - see our student page and diary for details.
On Sunday 13 May 2018 Grace and Lyn were baptised. Our friends at Durham City Baptist Church kindly let us use their facilities. It was a great family occasion and a special time for all of us.
As the last part of our summer of doing church differently, Gareth and Jan transformed our usual church building into an artist's workshop. Each person had their own work space and was given a range of supplies, including a blank canvas. Various pictures were spread around the tables for inspiration but people were left to use this space to express worship and love for God in whatever way they chose. Artistic talent wasn't a requirement and many people surprised themselves! Below are some of the beautiful pictures people created.
Low Force to High Force Walk
We've been taking advantage of sunny days this summer to take church outside and explore some of the amazing sights in County Durham and to spend time relaxing together as a church family. Led by Gareth, a group of us recently walked from Low Force to High Force waterfall. We all enjoyed a picnic by High Force, taking in the surroundings.The views were truly beautiful and it was a great day of fellowship and laughter.
In May, Sam, Alan and Charisse were all baptised. They have come to know Jesus through the Alpha course which we ran at the Brandon drop-in earlier this year. It was a very special day for each of them and was a wonderful day for us as a church family. We celebrated together with a bring and share lunch.
In August 2017, Malcolm - a regular at the Durham drop-in - made the decision to follow Christ. He was baptised in the sea at Seaton Carew. The weather was lovely, although the sea was cold! Please be praying for Malcolm as he continues to grow in his faith.
