Remembrance Sunday 2017

Many thanks to all who helped or took part in our first outdoor Remembrance Service.  Over 500 people from our community attended and we raised over £250 towards the work of the Royal British Legion.

Notices for Sunday 12th November

Here are the notices for this weekend. Don’t forget that this Sunday there will not be a service in church at 10am. We will be meeting at the war memorial on Market Street, Church Gresley at 10.30am and then making our way to the bandstand in Maurice Lea Memorial Park for the remembrance service. Please come along and support this event as we remember those who have fought and died so that we can live in peace.

Exciting news from Swadlincote Churches Together team

We will again be having a stall at the town Christmas market on Friday December 15th.  This is being organised by Denis Barratt and Margaret Greenfield, who are planning to give away “goody bags” as in the past. IT IS NOT TOO EARLY TO VOLUNTEER TO HELP FOR AN HOUR OR TWO ON THE STALL, OR TO HELP PACK THE BAGS BEFOREHAND.  Please contact Denis, Margaret, or Diane Hardy.

There will be a lovely carol singing event on the Delph on Saturday 23rd December at 11 a.m.  we are hoping for lots of singers; we will be accompanied by the Gresley Colliery Brass Band, and mince pies will be provided.  This is being advertised by the council and should be a great outreach, please come and join in.

Churches Together are funding a  Christian theatre group to present the Christmas story in a new way to some of the school children in the town.  Please pray for this event.

The week of prayer for Christian Unity as usual, will be Jan 18th – 24th.  A small group of people will be planning this and more news will come later.  However, if you have any comments or suggestions about this, please send them to Diane Hardy.  We would really like this to be a success and we need everyone’s support and prayers.

THERE ARE 11 CHURCHES IN THE CHURCHES TOGETHER ORGANISATION.  THAT IS MORE THAN ENOUGH TO MAKE THESE EVENTS AN AMAZING SUCCESS IF WE ALL DO OUR PART.  WHAT IS YOUR PART? IT MAY BE TO SUPPORT PRAYERFULLY, FINANCIALLY, PRACTICALLY OR MAYBE ALL 3.  WE ARE ALL PART OF THIS WORK TO FURTHER GOD’S KINGDOM.

… A Church at the heart of the Community seeking to be: Rooted in Scripture, Relational, & Abundantly Generous.
