SUNDAY 26 JULY

READING

Luke 1:26-38

EXPLORE TOGETHER QUESTIONS

  • What has been the worst thing
    that has ever happened to you?
  • Paul and Silas sang and did not
    escape when given the chance –
    what made them act this way?
  • Does knowing that Jesus gives
    you eternal life make you think
    about things differently?

ACTIVITY IDEA 1

Like Paul and Silas, choose your
favourite hymn or Christian song to
sing at the top of your lungs. Why
not make up some actions too?
help your design of their costumes.)

ACTIVITY IDEA 2

Paul and Silas weren’t scared of
prison or even dying. Make a list of
things that might scare some
people but don’t scare you.

PRAYER IDEA

Now think of some things that DO
scare you and ask God to help you
cope with those fears.

SUNDAY 2 AUGUST

READING

Revelation 21:1-7 

EXPLORE TOGETHER QUESTION

  • Who are you most looking forward
  • to seeing in heaven?
  • Can you find all the positive
    images about heaven in this
    passage?
  • What will be the best thing about
    living forever in heaven?

ACTIVITY IDEA 1

Lay out all the letters of the alphabet
in order (make them or use Scrabble
tiles). God said He is the A and the Z –
what might the other letters stand for
if they were describing heaven?

ACTIVITY IDEA 2

Create a poster depicting heaven. Use
craft materials to draw some of the
images from this passage.

PRAYER IDEA

Pray the Lord’s Prayer. Focus on the
first 5 lines and really think about
what you are saying and what it
means.

Church open for prayer

From Friday 24 July, church will only be open on Wednesday mornings 9 to 12. This time will be unsupervised and enables us to comply with cleaning requirements

Welcome

A huge thank you to all of you who have welcomed our church family with your friendly
smiles over recent years. We understand that some feel unable to return to this at the present time, and so we are seeking some new friendly faces to join the team for the 9am
service and provide some assistance during the service. If you feel able to do this once a
 month, please contact Helen Huck, Jill Shephard, or John McKenzie.

 

Thank you 

To the kind individual who posted a gift for our family at James and Madi’s House. We would like to say thank you, and thank you God for blessing you with a heart filled with
generosity. With a heart full of thanks, love and blessings,
Graham and Emma Wilson.

 

The Jones and Sharpes would like to say that although they are stepping down from active service they will be around and helping as long as the Lord permits.

UPC Building Project Team – Progress

Hello All, here is the latest update from the UPC Building Project Team. We have recruited two new members. A very warm welcome to the team Anthony Bryson and Paul Daltry.

We hope you have all received your e-mail from the Church with Alan’s Restoration Video embedded. If you can think of anybody you know who would like to see it please forward it on to them. We are hoping to engage with as much of our local community as possible to see how they would like to use our buildings and grounds and we will adapt some of our plan accordingly. We would like more of our community to engage with our buildings and grounds, not only for worship, but also for historical interest and various heritage activities.

A team of congregation members has been hard at work mapping our monuments and are nearly ready to start the publishing process. Once completed we hope to have a fantastic interactive mapping product similar in design to the one at
http://kirkburtonchurchyard.co.uk

The Diocese has granted a faculty for the initial works to the bell frames and we hope work may start next spring.

If you would like to help out in any way or would like more information please get in touch.

Secretary to the Restoration Mission – UPC Building Project Team
