VBS 2018 - July 16-20 Shipwrecked - Rescued by Jesus; Make it an all-day Event with CookSMART

Kids JK to Grade 5 will venture onto an uncharted island where we are rescued by Jesus! Anchored in the truth that Jesus carries us through every storm in life, we'll learn to hold onto God's promises when we are lonely, worried, struggling, doing wrong, and feeling powerless.  

Morning Camp - July 16-20th

The programme runs in the mornings from 9am to noon from July 16-20th and there is a big Celebration Sunday Service on July 22nd at 10am. Themed games, skits, crafts, snacks, videos and awesome VBS songs make the morning fly by.

Why not join a small group in your Lenten journey this year?

Why not join a small group at St. Bride's in your Lenten journey this year?  We will be using Timothy Keller’s series called A Journey Through Lent:

A Spiritual Journey Through Lent is a 40-day devotional series that takes you on a journey from Ash Wednesday to Easter. It begins by reminding us of the reality of our broken humanity, but as days grow brighter, brings us to experience with greater abundance the reality of God's redeeming grace.

Read the Archbishop of Canterbury’s Lenten Book, “Say It To God: In Search of Prayer"

We encourage everyone to read the Archbishop of Canterbury's Lenten Book, "Say It To God: In Search of Prayer" by Luigi Gioia.

In Say it to God Luigi Gioia provides a welcome encouragement to all those who feel the need to freshen their practice of prayer. For Gioia, prayer is not about methods or techniques, but trusting that God is truly interested in everything that happens to us and wants to hear about it. The book leads the reader into the theological aspects of prayer and how it relates to Christ, to the Holy Spirit and to the Church. This is done without using complex theological concepts but simply through scriptural quotations. Chapters are kept brief intentionally to make the book suitable for daily reading over the Lenten period. With a foreword by the Archbishop of Canterbury, Say it to God demonstrates that the everyday, even the most mundane of tasks and situations, can be applied in deepening our practice of prayer.

You can buy a paperback or Kindle version at, or digital versions at Indigo/Chapters or Apple iBooks.
