Remembrance Sunday & Shoebox Appeal

Sunday 10th November at 10:45am

Ceramic-Poppy-Field

Remembrance Sunday is held in the United Kingdom and the Commonwealth of Nations as a day “to commemorate the contribution of British and Commonwealth military and civilian servicemen and women in the two World Wars and later conflicts”.  It is held on the second Sunday in November, the Sunday nearest to 11 November, Armistice Day, the anniversary of the end of hostilities in the First World War at 11 am in 1918.

Please join us as we remember not only the sacrifice of Jesus Christ but those who have fallen in conflict.

Shoe Box Appeal (Blythswood Care)

We know that many of you in our community like to get involved so you can bring either your own completed shoebox or items that can be used to make a shoebox up to the service.

For full information about the appeal please visit Blythswood Care Shoe Box Appeal.  You are able to download or view a checklist of suggested items, or alternatively you can pick up a leaflet from our church.  (All items must be new and no food is permitted apart from sweets with a best before date no earlier than March 2020.)

This is the last day for bringing your completed boxes or items as they will be being collected on Monday 11th November.

 

Family Bonfire Party

Join us for our annual Family Bonfire Party in Hatfield on Saturday 2nd November.

Our annual Family Bonfire Party is one of many events we host throughout the year where the families of the children who attend our various youth activities can get together.

The bonfire is lit at 7pm and along with the fireworks there is always plenty of hot food & drinks and the chance for new friends to be made and old ones renewed.

During the evening there will be an evangelistic talk by Jake Hinton. Jake works for Avenue Church as their Youth & Families Worker.  This involves working with youths and children in the church to understand and pursue Jesus in their lives. 

Jake told us “I grew up in Leeds in a Christian family but I didn’t really understand the gospel until I was about sixteen. When through listening online I heard in Ephesians 2 how I was completely cut off from God, and its nothing that I’ve done, but all what he has done, bringing me alive again in Christ.  As Jesus died on the cross making a way for me to know him and true life.”

So why not wrap up warm and join us for a fun night.  It’s free for all the family although children must be accompanied by an adult.

All the fireworks are provided but please bring along extra sparklers if you wish.  We must ask that you do not bring any other type of fireworks along with you.

If you are interesting in joining us and would like further information please contact Gerard on 07983 869861.

(Church members – if you are able to provide a sweet tray bake or buns for this event please see the notice at the back of the church.)

Christianity Explored

Christianity Explored Handbook

Christianity Explored

For those interested in learning more about Christianity we are starting a ‘Christianity Explored’ course on Monday 7th October.

During the ten week course you will work through Mark’s Gospel and explore three questions that cut right to the heart of Christianity: Who was Jesus? Why did He come? What does Jesus demand of those who want to follow him?

The course will be held at our Pastors house and it is intended that the meetings will start at 7:30pm.

If you are interested or have any questions about the course please contact our Pastor Gareth, on 07913 577686 (if you have to leave a message please be assured that it will be responded to).

 

Harvest Thanksgiving Service

Harvest Celebration

29th September 10:45am

Our morning service will be centred on our Harvest Celebration when we give thanks to God for His provision in our lives both personally and as a church family. 

P1040868 (2)As in previous years we have asked our members and those who enjoy our group activities if they would like to donate either food or money to two charities.  Donations can be brought on Harvest Sunday and the two following Sundays.

Food parcels will be sent to Wharf House, Doncaster, who work with homeless and vulnerable people.

Monetary donations are sent to Caring For Life,  a Christian charity with the aim of sharing the love of Jesus with homeless or vulnerable people by providing accommodation, ongoing support, love and friendship.

“Out of the most severe trial, their over-flowing joy and their extreme poverty welled up in rich generosity.  For I testify that they gave as much as they were able, and even beyond their ability.

Each man should give what he has decided in his heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.” 2 Corinthians 8:2 & 2 Corinthians 9:7
