10th Birthday Celebrations
We had a wonderful weekend in February celebrating 10 years of 0930live! at the party in the hall and in the service. Many thanks to all who came to these events and shared their feelings about the service and thoughts about the future. As a team we are looking at the comments and we will keep you informed of all changes ahead.
We followed the themed preaching laid out for all services through the first quarter of this year and found it very helpful to connect to God in different ways. In February we lit candles to remind ourselves that we need to go back to God, the source of all light, and then pass on his light to others, and in March we took stones to hold as we prayed that God would give us the wisdom to recognise temptation and the strength to resist it.
Palm Sunday – 13th April
This year 0930live! falls on Palm Sunday which is a triumphal day in the calendar. We thought that it would be a good opportunity for everyone to invite someone, or a family, along to the service to share in the Good News. The feedback for the service suggests that it’s a friendly format and that the message is good – so what are we waiting for?!
Annual Camping Trip – 11th-13th July
It’s official – last year we out-grew Brassey Green, which is sad as there are many happy memories of campfires, scary stories amongst the grave stones and walks across fields and along the canal to the ice cream farm. But due to the success of the event we require better facilities and are looking at other options for this summer. If you would like to be part of the planning team for this year, please contact Andrea Ellams or me, all will be welcome.
We would love more people to get involved in 0930live! and all its social spin-offs. This not only needs people to respond to requests to help, but also requires us to be even more organised! We hope that as we move into our second decade (!) we can use the talents of more and more people to enhance worship and enable the growth of individuals.
