Our Summer Series
The morning series is looking at the book of Psalms.  We have given it the title ‘Songs in the Key of Life’ because the psalms touch on every area of human experience.
The evening series is about people whom Jesus met.  That’s why it’s called ‘Close Encounters’.

Songs in the key of life: Psalm 73Philippians 3:12-21 - Barry McCroskery

Prayer Ministry
Members of the Church’s Prayer Ministry Team are available in the Prayer Chapel following morning worship for anyone who would like people to pray for them. Prayer is available to everyone whether you are a church member or not. Our prayer ministry team are trained individuals under the authority of our ministers and all matters are treated in strictest confidence. This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us.” (1 John 5:14).

Sunday 31 August - Early Morning Broadcast

On Sunday 31st August, the BBC will be broadcasting “Sunday Worship” on Radio 4 from Fisherwick. Grosvenor Chorale will lead the worship along with musicians arranged by the BBC. The Rev Dr Gordon Gray will preach.
Although this is not a Fisherwick service as such, the BBC, through Rev Bert Tosh whom many of you will know, will broadcast from Fisherwick. As many of you know we have a long standing relationship with the BBC who have broadcast from our church on many occasions. Michael has been asked to lead the service, which he has agreed to do.
The broadcast is an open service (not a closed broadcast) so those who would like to attend the service are welcome to do so. All we ask is that you are seated in the church before 8.00am as the broadcast will start at 8.10am.
