Many of you have registered for Sunday’s Parents Empowerment Seminar.  Well done!

Please do not delay as entry is strictly for registrants only.

We would not be able to help on the day if you have not registered…oh!


Campus Ministry Partnership

From Sunday 27 November which is Partnership Sunday, we are inviting you to partner with the BLW Campus Ministry under the umbrella of Sound Mind.

All it takes is your monthly voluntary commitment of just £1 for each of your children.  (You can of course give more).

As we sow this seed into the Campus Ministry, the words of the Spirit that have been spoken over our Sound Mind children will not return void.

We would encourage you to participate.  It is collective partnership and we all know the power of agreement.

Please hand over your partnership seed to Deaconess Zoe who will submit this seed in the first service.  Do give your partnership preferably before every Partnership Sunday. Or before first service on the day.

This does not replace any individual giving to Campus Ministry.
