Well, Christmas has come and gone again, and no doubt everyone’s exhausted. We’ve loved our Christmas series, and as always our Nativity & Carol Service with hog roast was very popular and we had a great evening.
We’ll have a new morning preaching series in the new year and another set of evening meetings planned but I’ll update all of those later, for now we just want to wish you all a very happy new year and we hope to see you in 2016.
…the geese are getting fat. The people, on the other hand, are largely getting stressed organising presents and Christmas dinner, decorating trees and houses. Why not get yourself back in the real Christmas spirit with our advent services this year?
As usual, we’ll be building up to our main Christmas event the Sunday before Christmas day. This year it’s the 20th and entitled ‘What a difference a day makes‘. We’ll have carols, kids forgetting their lines and not knowing where to go or when to go there. To top it all off, we finish with a Hog Roast, mince pies and chocolate log. It’s a great evening.
Here’s our full Advent plan (all at 10:30, except 20th Dec):
This Saturday (21st Nov) we have our annual Free 2 You event at church 10:30 – 12:30.
Games, toys, childrens clothes, books, Bric a Brac. All the usual jumble sale items but without the 15p price tags.
In the evening, Centrepoint Elim in Winton (Hawthorn
Road) are hosting our area Southern Fire event at 7pm. Our very own Pastor will be speaking. It’s good to meet together as Elim churches (though anyone is welcome, of course) so if you can make it please go along for a great evening of praise & teaching.
Our Sunday evening series, Life on the Frontline starts this Sun, 18th Oct and runs until the last session on 22nd Nov.
The series is video based, and shows us how to live as ‘whole life disciples’ whatever we do, wherever we are and whoever we’re with.
Do join use for a series that promises to help us bring the Good News to those around us without being ‘that guy’.
The Grid is back!
Saturday 10th Oct at Springbourne Christian Centre we’re hosting one of the Elim Serious4God Gathering 100 events in association with the other local Elim Churches.
More than a normal Grid, we’re starting at 3pm with a fun and games afternoon, and the evening celebration starts at 7pm. £3 for the whole afternoon, £2 if you’re just coming for the evening celebration.
We’ve got Graffiti workshops, bungee runs, Hog Roast, Skalextric and more stuff that I can’t remember. All this in addition to our usual awesome evening of worship, teaching and fun.
Vinesong will be in concert this coming Sunday (4th Oct) at 6:30 p.m. everyone welcome. Entry is free, an offering will be received.
Vinesong have lead Ministry and worship each year at the National Day of Prayer on the steps of the capital building in Washington DC and ministered with music at the United Nations in New York and at the U.N. in Nairobi Kenya.
Much loved songs like ‘let your living water flow Over My Soul’ and ‘peace like a river’ and many more have a blessed congregations around the world for many years. You can see their promo video here on YouTube
