21st Century Fox?

Dave Farrants of Fox Video has worked his video wizardry once again and got Mike Hencher on YouTube. There's a few 'thought for the day' type programmes and 12 sessions of apologetics. For those who only use the old Latin word, apologia, in the sense of saying sorry, there is another meaning. Originally it meant a defence of something. These videos give the solid reasons for believing in the Christian faith. There are cold hard facts to check out. Christmas may give some the opportunity to figure out the reason for the season.
You can find all the videos HERE

Thou shalt...

Not all of the Ten Commandments are negative. In fact, if we lived by them the prisons would be empty and we would have the peace we are all looking for. Our next All-Age Service on the 21st at 11am will include a couple of fun ways of learning the Commandments in order. Do join us for this important refresher course.
At 6:30 the first part of a DVD will be shown based on the life of one of the greatest Baptist preachers of all time - Charles Spurgeon

HOPE has arrived!

We had a great time with the DVD series The HOPE last Sunday - it created an interesting discussion. The next instalment deals with development of The People of the Promise - Sunday 11am. At 5pm we celebrate the 37th Anniversary of the opening of the new chapel in Western Way. But those of you who have seen the super video Dave Farrants made for us will know that the original chapel dates from 1921. So this could be our 89th annual celebration. We will start with the food and then move on to a visual review of the year. As always our meetings are open to all - so you are very welcome.

Don't forget

From Sunday 7th November all our morning services will be at 11am and we are beginning a series entitled The Hope. Do join us if you can either for the morning or to hear Tim Dean from Newent at 6:30 pm

Wednesday, 27 October 2010


Vic Newman will be speaking at our 10:15 service and the evening speaker is Mike Hencher.
Next month we are commencing a brand new service. From next month onwards our Sunday morning service will be at 11am instead of 10:15am.
So that will mean all our morning services will be at 11am, including the All-Age Service on the 3rd Sunday, which has been running for some time.
We will be starting the new style meeting with a series entitled The HOPE.
We trust that just having only two times to remember will make it easier for everyone. There will always be a service at 11am and 6:30pm.

Sparks are flying!

Well, not exactly, we have Rob Moore's team of electricians in to improve the electrical supply at the Chapel.
Of course, we do look for sparks to fly spiritually at our services. Almighty God is more powerful than all He has created in the Universe and we want to see His power flow to all the population around the Chapel.

At 6:30 Steve Cracknell and a team of youngsters will take us on an adventure! They have recently been to Albania the country that used to be called the "first atheist state of the world". Things are different now and the team will show photographs on the video projector to let us know just how much.

The 6-30pm service will be the continuation of our series in Ephesians led by Mike Hencher.

Dutch Delight

We were so pleased to see a family of five from the Netherlands at last Sunday's evening service. They were staying at the old Ann Cam School and it was great that met Mabel McCulloch at the Chapel who attended the school in the 1930s. They are very much enjoying being in the Dymock area and found the Chapel on the internet.

New Chapel promo video

We are very grateful to Dave Farrants of Fox Video for creating our video about the work at the Chapel. Dave's professionalism and hours of work have produced an excellent snapshot of the things that go on at Western Way. Dave can be contacted at

In Memory of David Davis

Many of you will remember David whom we miss tremendously at the Chapel. David had the vision to fit a multi-media projector for use in the services. In memory of Dave we have fulfilled his vision and a new 5000 lumen projector has been fitted plus a new P.A. system
