There are some interesting things happening in October locally, so here are some dates for the diary.
From 14th October, a local group called B:friend is hiring the community room at our church for meetings between 1.30 and 2.30 p.m. This organisation seeks to link people with those who are elderly and unable to get out and about and to tackle loneliness in our area. Come along to find out how you can be a befriender and make a difference in our community.
The Christian Institute is holding a meeting entitled ‘Living Christianity’ at Bessacarr Evangelical Church on Bessacarr Lane in Doncaster on Monday 14th October at 7.45 p.m. This meeting looks at issues that are very much in the news at present such as the family, gospel freedom and gender ideology and discusses the Christian response to government legislation.
We hold midweek meetings on Thursdays at 7.30 p.m. to study the book of Acts and to pray. There will be no Thursday meeting on 17th October, but instead there will be a prayer meeting on Friday 18th October at 11.30 a.m.
The ‘Churches Together’ prayer meeting in October will be on Wednesday 23rd October at 10.30 a.m. at GPCC. Join with us to pray with Christians from other churches.
Don’t forget our main outreach event on Wednesday 30th October at three local venues: Houghton Road Centre in Thurnscoe (9-11 a.m.), GPCC in Goldthorpe (12-2 p.m.) and St Andrew’s Parish Hall in Bolton-on-Dearne (3-5 p.m.) when we will be welcoming the Message Bus to our area and hosting a Family Fun Day in each of these venues with crafts and activities on the theme of light. Please pray for the organisation of this event and let Julie know if you can help in any way at any of these venues.
