Church Service at Inspire St James, Clerkenwell

St James C of E Church

Everyone is very welcome to join us for tea and cake and the church service, which runs every Sunday. Hope you can join us! PLEASE NOTE that this is NOT the English class. The English class runs during the term: and classes are posted as separate Meetup events. Please sign up for the classes on the relevant Meetup. The classes run from 2pm - 3:30. -- 3:30 Come and meet old and new friends and chat over coffee/tea and cakes before the 4:00 Church Service Tea and cakes again after the service What happens during the church service? You do not need to do anything, apart from sit, listen and observe. It is a great way to improve your listening skills and also to learn about what the Bible says about life and why we think it might be relevant. We sing some songs, pray, listen to and follow a Bible reading, and a talk explaining it. In some services, the church family celebrates communion together -- we eat a small portion of bread and drink a sip of wine or grape juice, to remember Jesus' love for us and his forgiveness. This forgiveness is made possible through Jesus' death and resurrection for us, so that we may live life to the full in God's presence, now and into eternity. You are welcome to join at any time and leave before the service finishes if you do not feel you can stay. You will have time after the service to talk to us either about what you have heard or just anything you'd like to talk about, over a cup of tea or coffee and there is usually also a lot of cakes or snacks!
