Advent devotional

This advent season we are following the ‘Christmas story’ through the Bible book of Ruth using this advent devotional. If you would like to join us, it’s not too late to grab a copy of the book from our church bookstall – they are offered at the discounted price of £1.70.

Christmas Toy Appeal

Get involved!

Churches in Swindon are once again launching a Christmas toy appeal with the aim of bringing a little hope and happiness to local families* living in desperate need, so they can have presents to wake up to on Christmas morning.

We are asking individuals, groups and organisations for donations of new toys to suit ages 0 – 16. Or you can make a financial gift if you prefer. If you are able to support this fantastic initiative or would like to know more details including gift suggestions and drop of points etc go to: https://gatewaychurchswindon.org.uk/toy-appeal/

*All families will be nominated by social workers, churches and support organisations across Swindon.

Little Freshers

We have had a great first term back at Little Freshers. The children have enjoyed playing on the soft play, reading in our book corner, playing with dolls and toy cars, doing jigsaw puzzles, whizzing around on the ride on toys, getting creative with playdough, using glue to create masterpieces, singing nursery rhymes… the list could go on and on! Parents and carers have appreciated being able to chat and socialise with other adults over a cup of coffee and the babies have enjoyed their own quiet space in our designated baby area.

About

Alpha is a series of interactive sessions that freely explore the basics of the Christian faith.

Alpha takes place across ten Sunday evenings (with the option of a Saturday in the middle).

Each evening includes a meal, a short video presentation, and a chat at the end where you can share your thoughts and questions.

If at any point you decide Alpha isn’t for you, that’s not a problem. There’s no pressure, no follow-up, and no charge.
