Fruitfulness on the Frontline
Through the autumn we are basing our sermon series, Connect networks and kids’ groups on a Sunday on this course from LICC. If you would like to order additional resources or download study guides, then please go to their website at: www.licc.org.uk and search for ‘Fruitfulness on the Frontline’.
If you would like to be filmed talking about being a Christian outside of Sunday services please talk to Jo, and if you would like us to pray for a particular place you live, work, volunteer, go to school, play, shop or anything else please also let Jo know. We want to bring all these places before God in our worship.

Warden Hill pioneering: At the start of November it will be a year since the first pioneer meeting in Sardar’s café, which Jo is leading. In that time many different things have happened, and they now have a regular Wednesday lunch time gathering at Sardar’s where they share lunch, pray and study the bible together. They thought it would be a great idea to get together to celebrate what is happening in Warden Hill, give an opportunity to find out more about pioneer ministry, and to pray for Warden Hill. And so everyone is invited to a gathering with nibbles and refreshments at 7.30pm in the URC main hall on Tuesday 30th October. Do hope you are able to come!
If you would like to join them in the café on a Wednesday lunch time the upcoming dates are: 10th and 24th October from 1pm at Sardar’s.
Bring and Share for the Worship team, at Pete and Annette’s house at 12.30pm on the 14th October.
There will be a prayer walk in Warden Hill on Saturday 27th October from 11am, starting at Sardar’s, for an hour. All welcome, come earlier if you fancy a hot drink before we set off.
Fireworks: 3rd November @ Collishaws – starting a 6pm with hot-dogs, hot chocolate and sparklers for the kids. Fireworks at 7.30pm followed by baked potatoes, Karaoke and games till 10pm.
