Evening Services 2017

As of 19th February, there is going to be a new focus for the evening services.

1st Sunday of the month.  This service will include the sharing of stories about what God has done or is doing in people’s life’s. This will normally be in the form of an informal interview. The service will also include some sung praise, videos, prayer and a message from the Bible.

2nd Sunday of the month. The main focus of this service will be  communion where we remember the death of Jesus. Communion will be central and the service will often include prayer, reflection, video, a short message  and some sung praise

3rd Sunday of the month. This service will be a more contemporary service aimed particularly at the millennial generation. It will include a more contemporary worship style and message. The service will at times be interactive and use video, reflective images and drama.

4th Sunday of the month. As part of this service we will engage with a culturally relevant topic or follow a sermon series as we consider how the Bible speaks today. This service will also include some sung praise, videos and prayer.

 

New Techies?

IMG_0677Our preoccupation up on the balcony, as you will realise if you have been listening to the notices recently, is people, or lack of them. 

We first published this post in May 2015 and since then things have got worse not better ….!

The Need

We need 3…. Having three individuals on for each service allows us to do some training, keeps the stress levels down, and ensures we are prepared and ready to switch on when Rae stands up.  Continue reading New Techies?

Interested in Baptism

18 Then Jesus came to them and said, ‘All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. 19 Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptising them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.’

Matthew 28

The Church will be holding Baptism classes in the near future.  If you are interested in membership, or baptism – please speak to the pastor

Nehemiah Series

Our Pastor Rae is currently doing a series of messages from the life of Nehemiah.  If you have missed any, you can catch them again on our podcasts page...

Nehemiah story

When Nehemiah served the king,

His face was always glad.

But one day when he came to serve,

His face was very sad.

The king and queen asked him why

And listened to his sad reply;

“Jerusalem is broken down.

And that’s what makes me cry!”

 

The King let Nehemiah go

To help rebuild the city.

But when he saw Jerusalem,

His heart was filled with pity.

It’s mighty walls

Were broken down

With rocks and rubble

All around.

“Come on! Let’s build!”

He cried to all

The people in the town.

GLIA Gas Bottle Refill Project

During the winter months the temperature in Dorohoi, Romania can average -25°C.  This make life very difficult for those what have little or no income – many of whom struggle to meet most of their living costs.

The Centre of Hope
The Centre of Hope

Many of those that come to the GLIA centre cannot afford to pay for their gas bottles to be refilled or for wood for their Soba’s (stoves) which means that they are unable to cook or keep warm.  We provide gas refills for as many as we can, especially during the winter and we are able to provide wood for some of those that do not have gas bottles

You will see that there is a small blue (imitation) gas bottle by the church welcome desk.  If you would like to contribute to the cost of providing refills or wood there is a slot in the top, all contributions in the gas bottle will be used for gas or wood.

If you are not able to get to our little gas bottle, click on the link above to learn more about GLIA’s Centre for Hope.
