Here are some notices for the month of May:

On Friday 3rd May at 6.30 p.m. at the Salvation Army church, there will be a concert in aid of HopeHIV, a charity which works with children affected by HIV. There will be an opportunity to hear about the charity’s work as well as singing contributions from the Goldthorpe Gospel Community Choir and the Sacred Heart School Choir. Tickets cost £2.50 or £5.00 for a family ticket. For further details, contact Adrian Lee on 01709 895018.

Throughout May, the prayer topic for our church will be the outreaches the church is involved in. These are:
• Monday night youth club
• Friday Mums & Toddlers Group
• Friday Badminton
• Saturday Coffee Morning
• Sunday night Sunday school
• All our church meetings

In addition, the building is hired by a number of other community groups.

Pray that God will:
• bless all our outreaches
• send His Holy Spirit into each outreach to keep the peace
• give wisdom and understanding to those who run these outreaches and help at them
• put His protection on all the people who run and attend these groups
• give us opportunities to plant seeds in people’s live and show God’s love to them
• let us see people from these outreaches into the church
• let us see people being saved
• lead us in ways that will improve our relationships with the people in the community
• help us to be good ambassadors for God in all that we do

If you would like to know more about any of these outreaches or be involved with helping with them, speak to any of the church leaders for more details. Paul told the Corinthians: “Though I am free and belong to no one, I have made myself a slave to everyone, to win as many as possible. To the Jews I became like a Jew, to win the Jews. To those under the law I became like one under the law (though I myself am not under the law), so as to win those under the law. To those not having the law I became like one not having the law (though I am not free from God’s law but am under Christ’s law), so as to win those not having the law. To the weak I became weak, to win the weak. I have become all things to all people so that by all possible means I might save some. I do all this for the sake of the gospel, that I may share in its blessings.” (1 Cor 9:19-23)
