This page holds information about special events hosted or supported by Cornerstone Church at the Well. This page is updated on a monthly basis.
June/ July/ August 2017
The following Special Events are happening in the Summer months of June, July and August. All Events are taking place in Cornerstone Church at the Well unless otherwise stated. All are welcome to attend.
June 17th Onwards- Treasure Hunts
A few weeks back Cornerstone Church at the Well began a new season of doing 'Treasure Hunts'. This was no typical treasure hunt for goodies and treats. It was a treasure hunt for people. What is a Treasure Hunt? The idea of a treasure hunt is to go minister, pray and witness to people out on the streets. Unlike a typical street evangelism outreach where you pick one designated spot and try to talk with everyone you meet, a treasure hunt narrows down the search by asking God to show you specific people He wants you to minister to, those who are a treasure to Him.
The plan is we will meet at the Well at 11am. We pray, wait on God and ask Him to reveal the treasures He would have us seek and then go out in obedience to His direction. Please come along and be amazed at what God can do.
The Treasure Hunts will take place every second Saturday 11am-1pm.
Planned dates: June 17th, July 1st, July 15th, 29th, August 5th, 19th.
June 21st Onwards - Encounter
This is a special summer event taking place every Wednesday evening from 7.30pm. It is for the people within the Church to come together to worship, share and wait on God. It is an opportunity for people to share what God by His Holy Spirit is speaking to them and the body at Cornerstone Church at the Well.
We pray that it will be a time of encounter, fellowship and blessing to us all as God continues to move among us and out through us into the community of Bray in whom we serve.
For more information contact the leadership team.
June 25th - Exploring the Bible - Deepening Foundations
This is a monthly bible study for the Church to come together and begin to explore and deepen our foundations in biblical truths. This is an exciting opportunity for us as a family body to learn and grow with each other whilst getting some in depth teaching from many great teachers within the Church.
Exploring the Bible will run once a month from 2pm after the main Church service where light refreshments will be provided.

July 29th - So You Want to Write - Creative Writing Seminar with David Aikman
Do you want to write your own life story, or the story of your pioneering great uncle, who was a sheep farmer in Australia for several years? Or of your mother, who spent decades as a teacher? Or your grandmother who survived the sinking of the Lusitania?
Is there a novel within you burning to get written and published? Do you long to see a great reform in education, and have many ideas on how to accomplish it? Have you taken some trip to an exotic location, survived the dangers of getting there, and want to write it down now that you have safely returned?
Have you thought up some new way of making money and want to sell copies of the book about it to everybody you know? Are you very skillful at keeping squabbling relatives entertained during Christmas? Is there some achievement you have accomplished in your life that would bless others if they read about it?
Most people at some point in their lives have an urge to write something down. It may be a book or it may be as short article for a school magazine.
If any part of you wants to be a writer, you should come to a free seminar introducing you to how you can become one and acquire the skills necessary to being successful at it.
Cornerstone Church at the Well are delighted to host a unique creative writing seminar with acclaimed award winning journalist, author and speaker David Aikman.
