July 2018 – Church Newsletter

Whether this is your first visit, or you feel like you are part of the furniture, we pray you find a fresh welcome as we gather for worship.

We meet each Sunday to bring our prayers, praise and worship, to explore God’s word and to join in fellowship with God’s family.

During July Jason will be leading our services helped by many from the fellowship week by week. At our services on 8th & 22nd, our youngsters are invited to join one of the ‘Powerbase’ series of groups after the first part of our service together. Our service on the 1st hosts our ‘All-in’ service , our fellowship meets at camp and at church on 15t for communion and we welcome David and Claire-Lise Judkins along for our special 5th Sunday service on 29th of the month.

After our service, there is always time for fellowship over a cup of tea or coffee, so please do take the opportunity to say hello and find out more about our life together as a fellowship.

 

One Mission

It was great to hear from BMS World Mission partners Matt and Julia in June. We now look forward to David and Claire-Lise Judkins visiting us on July 29th to share about their work in France. A big thank you to David and Linda’s homegroup the OneMission coffee morning and ploughman’s lunch. Please look out for more news from our mission partners on the information table at the back of the church.

 

Homegroups

Our homegroups are small midweek gatherings in people’s homes, where there is opportunity to explore issues about our beliefs and support each other as we live out our faith. There is a variety of formats, as unique as the people who attend. This month the various meetings are:

  • Linda Rockall’s group: 4th & 18th
  • Ted & Sherrie’s group: 4th & 18th (social)
  • Lauren’s group: 5th & 26St (social) Joy’s group: 3rd & 17th
  • Youth group: 3rd & 17th
  • Jason’s group: 5th & 2nd Aug
  • Paul & Sue’s group: 10th July (ladies social)

 

Powerbase

Our regular Powerbase groups take a break in August. Instead we’ll be running sessions with all children in together. It’s an opportunity for the regular Powerbase leaders to have a bit of time off so any volunteers that don’t normally help out but don’t mind lending a hand are most welcome (it’s only once a year, go on!) If you want to volunteer speak to Jenny G or Chris B

 

Church Camp

This year’s camp at Coldwaltham is over the weekend 13th to 15th July. The theme this year is ‘Holy Spirit’. Those signed up should now have received an email from El with details and costs etc. so please make sure you pay! If you have any queries then please do check in with El, who can help or point you in the right direction.
