0930am Chapel Service
Prayer, worship and communion 9.30-1oam in the chapel at St Paul’s Catholic College in Burgess Hill.
Every Sunday morning we meet at St Paul’s Catholic College in Burgess Hill for coffee at 10.00am and our family service starts at 10.30am.
There is something for everyone on Sunday mornings at The Point. We’ve put lots of effort into making Sunday mornings connect with children and young people. Kids can expect lively worship music, relevantly presented bible stories, craft, games, bouncy castle, kids videos and a different group for every age group where children can encounter God at their own level. Youth have their own venue where they can connect with God and other young people.
For adults we have a talk designed to open up the bible and apply it to real life. This is the place where we aim to meet with God in a deeper way through His Word, and where we try to think through our faith in a more rigorous way, followed by a time of worship together through music in a relaxed and welcoming environment.
The school Chapel is also available for our use. This is a beautiful quiet space for prayer and stillness. Our Sunday mornings can be a little noisy and busy, so we are really delighted to have some quiet space to offer. We have a prayer ministry team available each week that will operate from the chapel. So the chapel is open if you would like prayer for anything at all, or if you just need some space.
On Sunday 3rd February we will be launching our brand-new evening service, which will run every Sunday at 6pm in The Emmanuel Centre in Ditchling.
In many ways, The Point at Six will replicate our morning service. It will hold to the vision of being ‘a transforming presence throughout Mid Sussex.’ It will live the same values of being welcoming, prayerful, generous, servant-hearted, whole-hearted, adventurous and relational, and at key times, it will follow the same teaching series, but starting something new allows us to purposefully focus on some specific characteristics that we feel God is highlighting for this new service: FREEDOM – INTIMACY – ENCOUNTER.
FREEDOM in worship, teaching and life. We will still plan and prepare within a guideline structure, but we will hold it lightly. If we feel the Holy Spirit leading us off plan during the service, we will go there as we seek to see lives set free.
INTIMACY with God through worship, listening prayer and ministry. The expression of worship will be much the same, albeit a cut down music group due to space. We will be attentive to God’s presence, press into His grace, and hopefully, through this, respond to an increased awareness of his love for us.
ENCOUNTER Jesus to impact our everyday lives, recognising that only whole-life discipleship will lead to a transformed life surrendered to Christ. Encounter will lead us to be a missional community that will boldly go into the world with purpose and intentionality for Christ.
The heart behind this new venture is for more – more freedom, more intimacy, more encounter. At the same time, more will be asked of our people – more surrender, more worship, more boldness. Our hope is not that we will usher Jesus into our presence on our terms, but that He will usher us into His presence as we surrender to His terms.
Due to limited parking available at The Emmanuel Centre, we are reserving spaces here for the elderly, disabled and parent with young children. Please park in the Ditchling Village Car Park behind the Village Hall (12 Lewis Road, BN6 8TT). Please do NOT park in the pub car parks as we want to maintain good relationships with the locals! Thank you.
