MARK RITCHIE 'FOR THE LOVE OF GOD'

Mark Ritchie took this production to the Edinburgh fringe last year and we have been lucky enough to get one of his UK tour dates this year.

Mark is a Christian comedian and talented story teller.  His show will entertain but also carries a powerful gospel message.  Tickets will be on sale at the door and for such a quality performance are a real bargain at just £3 each.

Please come along and bring your friends for a great evenings entertainment.

MEN'S BREAKFAST WITH CHRISTIAN AID

Men's Breakfast at Central Methodist Church, Saltergate Saturday 15 October

Our speaker in October will be Paul Furbey, Regional Coordinator for Christian Aid in South Yorkshire, who will be updating us on Christian Aid's current work, including the Christmas appeal around the refugee crisis.

 Christian Aid's vision states "Poverty is an outrage against humanity. It robs people of dignity, freedom and hope, of power over their own lives. Christian Aid has a vision - an end to poverty - and we believe that vision can become a reality." 

Arguably that vision is needed as much now as ever. We hope that as many men as possible will be able to come along on Saturday, 15th October at 8.30 am to find out more. 
Cooked breakfast is provided and we aim to finish by 10.00 am - if you hope to come, it would be helpful (but not necessary) for catering purposes to let Brian Offiler know (01246 234707 orbrian.offiler@btinternet.com).

NEW LIFE CHURCH BBQ

Thank you to everyone who supported and helped with the BBQ last Saturday and especially to everyone at the parish church for letting us invade their grounds. The decision to postpone for a week proved to be a wise one as rain made way for a lovely afternoon this week.

There was a great family atmosphere and the queue for the BBQ was pretty constant as over 750 free lunches were served. Parents and children alike tried out the circus skills and craft activities and hopefully enjoyed their afternoon in town.
