The Venue Hub:
The venue hub will begin on Monday 8th of January and will continue each Monday during term time. It runs from 1:00 pm to 3:00 pm.
What is it?
A time to gather together, bring friends, eat cake, drink tea and coffee, think about the christian faith and what it is to be a follower of Jesus through a short focused discussion, asking questions,sharing and testimony. Pray for others, encourage others….. and so much more.
Also, if you would like to experience church with a difference, why not come along to Venue, our cafe-style church. It happens every 2nd Sunday from 3:30 pm – 5:15 pm.

Sunday 30th September: 6:30 pm Our evening service will be a Taize service led by Cantus Firmus. Cantus Firmus are a local choir and musicians comprised of local Christians who play to a very high standard. Taize style worship is very reflective and contemplative and is ideal for those who like to seek God through stillness and gentle biblical meditation. All are welcome and we would encourage you to bring family and friends.
Mission Shaped Ministry
Plume Avenue URC, Chelmsford Diocese, Stanway Evangelical Church and the Colchester Pioneer Hub are delighted to make MSM available in the Colchester area. We believe it will be a significant resource for building the Kingdom of God in this area. Individuals are most welcome, but we particularly hope that small groups from a church or fresh expression will come as this will deepen the impact of the course.

A Life like Jesus

On Sunday 30th September we welcome Cantus Firmus who will be leading us in Taizé style worship. Join us at 5:30 pm for refreshments and the service will begin at 6:30 pm. The service will end at approximately 7:30 pm. There will be a retiring collection.
Tony and Jo thought that the idea from mums, of children who attended our summer holiday club, to have a breakfast Alpha was a brilliant idea. So we are. It will give mums time to get children to school and enjoy a breakfast (which often they missed).
It will commence 9.15am on Monday October 8th here at Plume Avenue Church and run for eight weeks excluding half term.
The Alpha course helps people to learn about Jesus through discussion and watching videos. It is very friendly, informal and provides an opportunity to explore the meaning of life.
The mornings will start with breakfast followed by a video before chatting together in small groups with the freedom to ask any questions. If you would like to take part please register at this email address.
