Outreach to our community is a vital part of who we are at Goldthorpe Pentecostal Community Church (there’s a clue in the name, after all!) We believe that Jesus brings us good news of forgiveness, hope, restoration and relationship with God and this news is so fantastic, we don’t want to keep it to ourselves!

You can join us once a month for coffee mornings on the 1st Saturday of each month between 10 a.m. and 12 p.m. – the next coffee morning is on Saturday 5 August.

We’re also working with other local churches to put on family fun days in school holidays where we explore a Biblical theme through crafts and activtiies and enjoy eating together as well – which is what Jesus and His disciples often did, sharing meals. We will be at Furlong Road Methodist Church on Wednesday 26 July between 10 a.m. and 12 p.m., looking at the theme of ‘Lost Things’ (and how God finds them!)

On Wednesday 2 August we are hosting the family fun day at GPCC fbetween 10 a.m. and 12 p.m., looking at the theme of ‘God’s Great Party’. Did you know that God throws a party every time someone comes to faith? (Luke 15) Or that God is planning a wedding feast for His bride, the church? (Matt 22) Find out more at this fun day.

In addition, we are going to do things a little differently on Sunday 6 August and hold a party church service at 4 p.m., to carry on the teaching in the family fun day. Come along for party food and games, a buoncy castle and singing and dancing as we remember just how much God likes to celebrate and rejoice. Being a Christian doesn’t mean leaving fun behind; Jesus came to give us life to the full! (John 10:10) Find out more.

Because food is involved in many of our events, we need to know numbers for catering purposes. You can book in to any of the above (which are all free to attend) by contacting Julie on 07729 421405 or emailing julie@gpcchurch.co.uk

We’re also supporting St Helen’s with their fun days on Monday 7 and 14 August (11.00 a..m. -12.30 p;.m.) at St Helen’s Church Hall in Thurnscoe and will be doing free crafts at the ‘Bounce Into Summer Event‘ at Goldthorpe Cricket Grounds on Wednesday 23 August between 12 and 4 p.m.
