23rd Nov 2024


Ladies' College

We live in a world full of uncertainty and unrest.

In a culture which relativises truth and reinvents morality, living as a Christian can be challenging.

In our own lives, we face doubt, pain and temptation.

How can we be secure in our faith, confident in the gospel, and face the future with certainty?

Join us as we look at the book of 1 John. As we dig into God's Word, we will discover vital gospel truths that will give us clarity and confidence in uncertain times.

Main Teaching

Colin Smith will be bringing our main Bible teaching for the day. Originally from Scotland, Colin is Senior Pastor of the Orchard Evangelical Free Church in northwest suburban Chicago. Before this, Colin was a pastor in north London. Colin is the founder of Open the Bible (, speaks regularly at Christian conferences, and has authored numerous books. Colin will be speaking at the Keswick Convention this year.

Looking Back


At our inaugural event on 23rd November 2019, around 700 adults and children gathered. 


We enjoyed great Bible teaching from Vaughan Roberts and others, vibrant singing led by EMU Music and DumbRocks, and fun fringe activities provided by Clownfish Events. We partnered with many local Christian organisations including Youth for Christ, Camp XL and Indigo Valley coffee.
