A special and sad day for our Parent/Carer group for babies and toddlers on Wednesday. Special as this was our first session in the newly refurbished hall. Sad as it was the first session since the loss of our much loved leader Jas.

Some photos from the preparation for last night's Caribbean Celebration – the first community event in the refurbished hall. More to follow, but here are a few comments. "It was great to welcome those who just dropped in as they saw what was going on. So lovely to have new people in our building." The event included a surprise extra bit to honour Mo for her 10 years with us. "What a joyful celebration and lovely tribute to Mo last night was". A big thanks to Mo and everyone who helped make it happen.

An article from 'Hand and Heart' about Brunswick Church's Positive Steps and how, one way or another, it has stayed open throughout Covid. Mo says: “It’s shown our community that, despite the pandemic, we’re still here for them even though we haven’t been doing things in person.” It also features the Refurb project and plans for a number of community events in the newly re-opened hall in the next few months. Read it here.
On Sunday morning we moved the first part of our morning service into the newly refurbished hall ℅ Refurb, to celebrate it's re-opening, thank God for his amazing provision and dedicate it to his service and for our community's use. Here are some photos. You can download and read the prayers here.
