 Week commencing 8th September 2019

When I remember you in my prayers, I always thank my God because I hear of your love for all the saints and your faith towards the Lord Jesus. I pray that the sharing of your faith may become effective when you perceive all the good that we may do for Christ. I have indeed received much joy and encouragement from your love, because the hearts of the saints have been refreshed through you, my brother.

 

Philemon 1, 4-7

Charities

#MEAction is the coffee collections charity during this quarter (June - Aug 2019).

Myalgic Encephalomyelitis (M.E.) is a chronic, fluctuating, neurological condition that commonly affects the nervous and immune systems. People with M.E. experience debilitating pain, fatigue and a range of other symptoms associated with post-exertional malaise, the body and brain’s inability to recover after expending even small amounts of energy. #MEAction has a mission to build a thriving, global community of support, activism, education and outreach.

Christian Aid for Displaced Refugees in Lebanon and Iraq Is the charity we are supporting to raise £5000 over 2 years and donations are greatly appreciated.

 

The Archer Project is in need of a continuing supply of Pot Noodles, tinned fish or fruit with ring pulls and breakfast cereals. Don’t forget to support the Food Bank with an extra item when you do your shopping. Please donate unwanted clean clothing/shoes/blankets/sleeping bags to Ben’s Place via Alan Brailey.

 

The Holy Habit for September & October is Making More Disciples

Holy Habits Book Club

The novel chosen for the Holy Habit, 'Making More Disciples', is: "Mr Rosenblum's List: or Friendly Guidance for the Aspiring Englishman" by Natasha Solomons (Sceptre, 2010).  At the outset of WWII, Jewish refugees Jack and Sadie Rosenblum, plus baby daughter, escape Berlin, bound for London.  They are greeted by a pamphlet instructing immigrants to act like 'the English'. This is an amusing story with an underlying serious theme - how to be accepted in a foreign land.  It could stimulate conversation about our aims in life and the values we choose to guide us.  The discussion will take place after the Morning Service on Sunday 20th October.

On Thursday 12th September, there will an open meeting of the Holy Habits Planning Group when we shall be considering events and activities for the current Holy Habit, 'Making More Disciples' and the next one for November, December and January, 'Eating Together'.

Following on from the Biblical Teaching Holy Habit, why not challenge yourself to read the Bible in a Year? More guidance to follow…. But maybe think about this?

Save The Date!! Saturday 28th September.

Continuing our “habit” of Fellowship, I have booked a table at a Chinese restaurant. If you’d like to attend and have the opportunity of tasting lots of different Chinese dishes let me know. Paula 

On Wednesday 11th September at 7.30pm, there will be an open meeting of the Worship Group.  All are welcome to attend to help plan services for the quarter: December, January and February.  Comments also welcome on recent services and on forthcoming ones in the current quarter's Preaching Plan.  

I won’t be on the pilgrimage as I have arranged to meet our local NE Derbyshire MP on the day of the pilgrimage as part of the End Hunger UK week of action. Robert

"It's Holiday Season"

Would you please buy an inexpensive item whilst on your vacation for our "holiday stall?" at the Christmas fair? Not something for example that says "a souvenir from Skegness". But a gift that will sell. Thank you so much. From the Christmas fair committee

NCH Action for children

We have raised £1392.97 so far this year:

£777.72 is from the collection boxes;

£100 pounds from the envelopes on NCH Sunday; 

£515 .25 was raised at the afternoon tea event.

Many thanks to everyone and special thanks to Sylvia and Ian for all their hard work arranging the afternoon tea event.

Our new British Gas supply to the Church has been delayed by Sheffield City Council, owing to their restrictions on the need to excavate part of the public footpath. Therefore, work will now take place on the morning of Sunday, September the 15th. There may be both some noise and possible disruption to car parking and vehicle access at the front of the Church during this gas installation, which is estimated to be completed within the morning.

Advanced notice: We are having a Mc Millan coffee morning on Saturday 28th September at Banner Cross Church 10am to 12 noon. 

There will be a cake stall, so items of baking will be gratefully received for the stall. 

They can be brought on Friday 27th September or the Saturday morning.

Hoping to see you there.

Jane, Linda and Kathryn

There will be a Leadership Team meeting on Tuesday 10th September. If you have anything you would like to be discussed, please see one of the Leadership team.
