Minister's Letter

Minister's Message for October 2017 :

 Greetings everyone!

Greetings everyone! Last month I was talking about the end of a school year; a few weeks later we are at the beginning of another. I am sure I have said this before, but a new school year, to me, is always a place of great hope and expectation. I used to look forward to buying me new pencils, pens and pencil case; now I understand it might be electronic gadgetry. However, the same is true, that it is a new start. Although it is not the beginning of a new church year as such, that starts in Advent, September is still a time for hope and expectation in our own lives with God, and in the life of our church with God. I encourage us all to pray for one another and for this coming year in the life of Christ Church that together, and individually, we would be a people of hope and expectation as we travel onwards with our incredible God.

Being part of three denominations gives us so many opportunities and possibilities too. This month is no exception. There are two occasions when we can meet with the wider church. I encourage as many as possible to come and join with me. The first is on Wednesday September 6th when a few of us will go to St Mary’s Church in Ely, invited as one of the churches to participate in an Introduction to Partnership for Missional Church. It is 7.30pm – do come along if you can. Do let me know. Also, a week later, along with other churches across the United Reformed Church East Midlands Synod, we are invited to a Roadshow in Sleaford at which Rev’d Peter Meek, the Moderator, will be present. This will be at Sleaford United Reformed Church from 7.00pm. I will be there and would welcome the company of others. Please let me know.

As you will see from the Newsletter there are also lots of other things happening. Do let me know if you would like to be involved with the Harvest Messy Church, for example… or if you would like tickets for the Quiz Evening. Also, for your diaries, we are celebrating Harvest, this year, on Sunday 1st October. After the service there will be a Harvest Lunch in the Church Hall. Do come along and bring your family and friends….

Yours in Christ Jesus,
