Hiya web, trust you’re having a good week
I think this August has been about as busy as any other. The holiday club was wonderful last week, the packed lunch giveaway is new for us in the summer, some of the groups have started back early as a summer trial in the centre, although this year we haven’t had the normal music or drama summer schools that sometimes use the building, its felt more normal.
The cafe has been quiet but that’s usual for August and the last couple of Sundays have felt like normal August weeks in many ways. This Sunday we will de more space to shekinah by opening the back again which allows more room to spread out.
This weekend feels like crossover week, from summer to autumn: just overheard a conversation in the cafe about putting the heating on. More pertinently….
Tonight I finish the last of the summer groups, for young dads. I’ve been so impressed, grateful and inspired by the summer groups.
There’s a training event tonight for children and youth leaders on additional needs
Tomorrow from 3 ish to 9ish we have a social at cudmore grove, East Mersea and you are most welcome. Nothing organised so bring a frisbee or a ball, a dog or your walking shoes, bring some food and a smile and meet some folk. Weather looks ok.
Saturday morning 8.30 it’s a men’s breakfast. Email email@example.com to book in today please
Saturday 10 till 2 we have the ‘light a candle’ event with Hunnaballs. It’s looking really good with lots of the pastoral and prayer teams, lots of activities and we trust lots of visitors. Do bring people who have suffered loss over the last couple of years.
Sunday the youth and children’s groups all restart too. Im speaking on Samuel in the morning and Seven is speaking in the evening
And it’s Messy church at 3.30. Currently this is the only service you need to book tickets for because we need to know how many resources to provide.
Monday Alpha starts at 7.45 on Zoom. Such a good opportunity to invite people to investigate more about Jesus.
Wednesday at 1 next week is a healing service – simply worship and prayer for Healing
Next week we start autumn proper with three nights of prayer. Wednesday 8th, Thursday 9th and Friday 10th, 8 pm in the building and on zoom for an hour. It’s going to be an important term in several ways so please join us in prayer on at least one of those nights.
I say it’s important because Aldi plan to move out at the end of November to their new store at tollgate. We are waiting to see what they decide to do with the space. We understand they are looking for tenants to recoup some of the rent they will be paying us on the empty space at least until November 2024. The ball is in their court. Please pray.
There are baptisms on Sunday 12th. We think at all three services…. It’s not too late to join the happy throng who are getting wet ….
Connections is after the 11am service on Sunday 12th – We have a church partnership, other churches call it membership. If you’re not yet a partner and consider Kingsland your church please plan to come to Connections.
And then the autumn groups and opportunities start in earnest. Please find a way to connect with people and join in. We love Sunday or Wednesday get togethers but often the more important and spiritually significant things happen in small groups as we work out our discipleship together, learn from one another and contribute. Please see the leaflet attached and join in!
Anyway, I need to think about Samuel for Sunday morning, and help set up the Shekinah space as a prayer room for Saturday. Glory!
Grace and peace
