I’m old-fashioned enough to still love getting a new paper diary or calendar and transferring important dates to these! Whatever your method of memory (digital, paper or other means), please put these dates somewhere you won’t forget them!
We’re having our next Team Building Day with Sarah Davey on Saturday 18th January between 4 and 6 p.m. (followed by a takeaway if anyone wants to stay for one!) This is an opportunity to look at communication and vision in the church in a more informal and relaxed atmosphere, using team building games and thinking about the message of good news we have and how to take this to our local communities. Children are welcome at these sessions and we hope you’ll join us as we look ahead to what God has got planned for us in 2020.
Every Thursday in January (except 16th January), we’ll be having a prayer meeting or Bible study (looking at the book of Acts) at 7.30 p.m. On Friday 17th January at 11.30 a.m. we’ll be having a prayer meeting. We’d love more people to come along to these meetings which give opportunity to be actively involved in prayer and study.
We are also hosting home Bible study groups once a month in two locations for those who find it hard to get out on Thursday evenings, so please see us if you are interested in joining one of these.
Our ‘Churches Together’ prayer meeting is on Tuesday 21st January at GPCC. Join with Christians from local churches to pray for our local churches and communities, expecting to see God moving in our area in this new decade.
