Harvest Celebration & Faith Meal
24th 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. As is usual for us we will be having a ‘Faith Meal’ following the service so please stay and enjoy some excellent food and company.
As in previous years and as a lead up to Harvest time 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 we have supported before.
The M25 Housing & Support Group is a charity that has worked in Doncaster since 1994. Their aim is “To prevent homelessness and break the cycles which cause homelessness, through the provision of effective support and advice …” Food parcels help tremendously.
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
After the summer break the Ark Club is starting back on Friday 8th September!
The Ark Club is for children in school years Reception to Yr4.
There are playground games; team games and activities. Here are just a few that we have got up this year:

- Christmas Crafts
- Simple Baking Crafts
Parents even get to join in too sometimes! The evening always finishes with a short story from the Bible.
We meets on Fridays during term time from 6:30pm to 8:00pm. (You can check on the events calendar to find out when the group starts up again after a break.)
At the beginning of the summer our brother Gerard led a team of twelve children from his school, Trinity Academy in Thorne, as part of the Emmanuel Schools Foundations trip to Zambia.
Based at the Christian Outdoor Centre near Mkushi in the central province of Zambia, they had the opportunity to give practical support, educational needs and connect with people suffering with HIV Aids.
We bring you not only Gerard’s report of the visit but also a video showing glimpses of their expedition made by Chris Gruar, a fellow teacher at Trinity. (more…)
They need missionaries in Australia?
“When our supporters learn that MAF (Mission Aviation Fellowship) has operated in Australia since 1973, many ask ‘why?’ But Arnhem Land reserve in Australia’s remote Northern Territory remains reliant on our planes and people to deliver basic supplies over vast distances and shine the Gospel into areas of spiritual darkness” Richard Chambers; Editor Flying for Life.
On Wednesday 23rd August, we welcome MAF Pilot, Alistair and his wife Anna to tell us about their life working and living in Arnhem Land, Australia with their two children. Learn about the many ways they are reaching out to the Yolnu; around 16,000 indigenous people living in scattered bushland communities.
Our service will start at the usual time of 7:30pm
