It’s been a busy half-term week, but there are other things coming up soon.

We will be attending the Christian Life & WItness Training Course on Saturday 29th February at Maltby Full Life Church. This is part of the Franklin Graham mission to the UK and is designed to equip Christians to effectively share their faith with others. It is a free and easy three-hour session open to all people. Please do come along to this course between 9.30 a.m. and 12.30 p.m. and if you need a lift, just let us know! Even if you don’t want to be part of the actual mission in Sheffield (venue still to be announced, but the date is Saturday 6th June), the course is very useful in giving you the Scriptural assurance and skills to share the gospel with friends and family.

Please pray also for 4FrontTheatre as they return to Goldthorpe to bring their show ‘Fisherman’s Tail’ to Goldthorpe Primary School and Sacred Heart School on Tuesday 3rd March. The show was seen by Thurnscoe and Bolton-on-Dearne schools last year as well as members of the community, so we’re excited to be able to give local children the opportunity to learn about the life of Jesus through the eyes of those fishermen disciples.

The Women’s World Day of Prayer will be on Friday 6th March at 11.15 a.m. at Goldthorpe Parish Church on Lockwood Road. The service is open to all – not just women! Written by Christians from Zimbabwe, this year’s service looks at the healing of a paralysed man: ‘Rise! Take up your mat and walk.’

Looking further ahead, the next ‘Churches Together’ Day of Prayer will be on Friday 3rd April at Furlong Road Methodist Church between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. There will be many prayer stations and opportunities to pray individually, with others and in different creative forms.
