Christian group on the move

THE Henley Filling Station, an informal gathering for local Christians, has moved to bigger premises.

THE Henley Filling Station, an informal gathering for local Christians, has moved to bigger premises.

The monthly meetings will now take place at Badgemore Golf Club instead of Henley Rugby Club. Since its first meeting in March 2011, the group has grown to about 100 members.

Maggie Atkinson, of Queen Street, Henley, who helped start the group, said: “We would love to thank the rugby club for its great hospitality but we needed a larger room.”

Each meeting starts with coffee and cake followed by contemporary worship, quality teaching and powerful prayer. There are a number of similar groups across the country.

Mrs Atkinson said: “As the wider church struggles to reconcile its differences, the heart of the Filling Station is to enrich understanding across all denominations — reaching out with attractive, effective and relevant lifegiving choices for everyone, whatever their story.

“Inclusivity and spiritual revitalising are key as we seek to encounter God, nourishing faith, however weak, damaged or flourishing, to experience a deeper security, freedom, purpose and joy.”

The next meeting will be held on Thursday from 7.30pm to 9.30pm when the guest speaker will be Rev James Nickols, assistant director of the Filling Station, with a talk called Practical Prophetic: Hearing And Giving Words From God Today.
