AMY FAITH MORLEY IN CONCERT

New Life Church Christmas Concert
with Amy Faith Morley
Monday 16th December
in the Ballroom at the Winding Wheel
Doors open at 7pm

Everyone welcome.  Tickets £2.50 at the door (Children free)
01246 200768


“Amy is a woman on a Journey of faith, who possess the rare ability of communicating the triumphs and tragedies of her experience with God; through the original contemporary songs she both writes and sings..."


Amy Faith Morley is an independent British singer-songwriter of country/folk style music.  Her uplifting debut album ‘Morning Star’ was released in 2014, followed by a tour ‘The Journey’ where she travelled from place to place with her acoustic guitar and a vintage suitcase filled with message-in-a-bottle style postcards which she gave out to her listeners!   This included churches, cafes, bars, festivals, homeless soup kitchens, youth groups and nursing homes.
It is evident that wherever Amy plays, people are not only inspired by her warm, comforting vocals but also encouraged by her testimony from a life of brokenness, fear and Identity-struggles, to finding faith, healing and ongoing freedom.

SHOEBOX SUNDAY

On Sunday 17th November New Life Church will be collecting shoebox donations for this year's Operation Christmas Child run by Samaritan's Purse.  Our whole meeting will be based around the impact of the shoebox gifts on the lives of children who may be receiving a Christmas gift for the first time in their lives.  
Just drop off your box or join us for worship followed by video presentations, a quiz and a look back at last year's boxes.


How Can I Join In?

Step 1
Find a Shoebox
Get an empty medium sized shoebox, and wrap the box and lid separately in colourful wrapping paper or order preprinted shoeboxes online. Attach the appropriate boy/girl label, marking if your gift is for a boy or a girl. Select an age category 2-4, 5-9 or 10-14 and attach the label to the top of your box.


Step 2
Fill with Gifts
Fill your shoebox with a selection of fun toys, hygiene items and school supplies. If possible, include one or two special items you know a child will love such as a doll, cuddly toy or deflated football with pump. See our Gift Suggestions below for more ideas.
Due to more stringent import regulations, toothpaste and sweets can no longer be included in shoeboxes.   

Step 3
Make Your Project Donation
A suggested donation of £5 is essential to cover project costs, including shipping, to enable a local church or group overseas to lead a safe, well-organised children's event where your shoebox will be given to a child in need. More detail on what your donation covers here.

Give online at Follow Your Box and you can print out a barcode and place it inside your shoebox on top of the contents. This will enable us to tell you which country your shoebox gets sent to.  

Or you can enclose cash or cheque (to Samaritan's Purse) and place it in an envelope inside your shoebox on top of the contents. If you are packing multiple shoeboxes you can write a cheque for one combined donation.

Note: Follow your Box is only available when you pay online

Step 4
Personalise and Pray
Personalise your shoebox by including a hand written note and a photograph of yourself, your group or your family. You may also like to pray for the child that will receive your gift.

Step 5
Drop off your Shoebox
Place a rubber band around each closed shoebox and take it to a local drop-off location between 11th and 18th November. 
We'd love to see you at the Winding Wheel on Sunday 17th November 10.30 am.
