Chat with the Pastor

Now that our charity shop and cafe, Refreshed are open, our Senior Pastor, Ashley is offering our community an opportunity to meet and chat with him. Ashley is offering sessions on the first Friday of each month and anyone wanting to chat with Ashley should email him to book a time. As the poster below says you can ask anything, chat in confidence about any circumstance. Questions about faith, prayer and God are all welcome.

Refreshed is open – well nearly!

Refreshed, our charity shop and cafe will be open next week with revised opening hours:

Wednesday, Thursday and Friday’s from 11am to 3pm.

Refreshed has always been a place where members of our community can come in for a cuppa, hot meal or simply to browse the shelves and clothes racks in our charity shop. Now that we’re (nearly) back open we are also here for so much more than that. Visitors will still be able to do all of those things, but we are also re-emphasising that we are a church whose primary focus is ‘to talk, walk and share Jesus, inviting others to meet Jesus and live the Jesus way‘.

We want to be a touch point, a place where people can come to find out more about our christian faith, prayer, worship, the church or God. As such there will be someone on hand during opening hours whether that is to talk, listen, pray or simply just be friendly.

We look forward to seeing you…

The beard and hair have gone!

Our Senior Pastor, Ashley Evans has had a dramatic change to his appearance this weekend when he shaved off his hair and beard in order to raise money for Christians Against Poverty (CAP) who preached at Bolton Villas in February 2021.

You can watch the video of Ashley’s head shave, as well as see before and after pictures on our Facebook page.

Christmas Services 2020

Hope and Joy

We’re now in one of the most important seasons of the Christian year, Advent, a time when we remember that God sent his Son to earth, born as a baby boy in a stable in Bethlehem. We celebrate Jesus’ birth, we celebrate the Saviour of the world coming to earth as an ordinary human baby.

May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace. Romans 15:13

As we gear up to celebrate Christmas in this most difficult and strangest of years, we pray that everyone will be filled with hope and joy. We pray that God will give you a peaceful, love-filled, joyous Christmas.

May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace. Romans 15:13.

Hair Today… going now.

Hair Today... Gone Tomorrow picture collage

So the hair cut & head shave are happening this afternoon 26th April 2020. Justin is doubling up with his mum who has been diagnosed with cancer and is undergoing Chemotherapy and as such her hair is falling out. Getting it shortened will make it simpler to deal with.

Justin is also going to get his hair cut, and his beard & head shaved today after he has been growing it since Movember.

The reasons behind this hair loss are to raise awareness of the youth work at Bolton Villas Family Church and emerge, as they both support young people they have regular contact with, in new and different ways at this time. So please dig deep and support them as they going through this hair loss experience.

You can review the Bolton Villas and emerge Facebook pages for pictures of both events, please don’t forget to support us by visiting: https://donate.giveasyoulive.com/fundraising/hair_today_gone_tomorrow_again
