Join us this Sunday, 16th, for our carol service at 6.30 and other services this Christmas. See Home Page graphic for details.
Thanks to kind members of the Co-Op, we now own a van for collecting food each week! This is a major step forward for us, as our faithful volunteers have so far used their own cars to travel as far as Coulsdon every week to collect fresh fruit, veg and bread products to distribute on Saturdays.
We are so grateful to all those Co-Op members who have designated us as their chosen "good cause" for the last couple of years. After sign-writing, we will not only be able to collect more food more efficiently but we will be publicising the food bank everywhere we go!
Thank you, Co-op!
Following an exciting and dynamic Sunday with Pastor Zak Gariba from Toronto last November, we have invited him and Karen-Marie back to hold four meetings over the weekend of 22nd to 24th June. This will be an anointed time of releasing you into your God-ordained giftings.
Everyone welcome! See flyer below for more information.
Our partnership with Living Word Ministries to run a food bank out of the church building is going well. We are negotiating a £1,000 grant at the moment, which will enable us to put a metal storage shed behind the church and to pay some of the volunteers' travel expenses. We are also expecting to expand the operation to two sessions per week and we will be looking for more volunteers.
So if you cna spare a couple of hours a week to help us run this valuable community outreach, do contact me.
Well done everyone who contributed to our building project in 2016! With your giving we were able to install a new heating system (cost £19,000) and a new suspended ceiling in the main hall (cost about £4,000). We also had a gas meter and gas supply installed (cost around £3,000).
So you gave and we spent about £26,000!
Well done everyone - now we need to get a new carpet down!
The emphasis for this set of meetings will be "Receiving The Spirit" and the Sunday morning is also Pentecost Sunday! Our visiting speaker on the Thursday evening will be Pastor Paul Song, a South Korean pastor who has spoken at our Fellowship before.
We all need more of the holy Spirit in our lives; transforming us, transforming our fellowship and transforming those around us. Do take this opportunity to seek God together for a fresh infilling of His Spirit in our lives and a revival of His power and love in our Fellowship!
Meeting times are :
Thursday 12th - 8-9.30pm
Friday 13th - 8-9.30pm
Sunday 15th - 10.30am - 12.30pm
