HOME GROUPS & CHURCH PRAYER TIMES

The Thursday evening Church Prayer time generally alternates with various Home Groups in a variety of locations, week by week. Current dates arrangements are:

April

ALTERNATE HOME GROUPS & CHURCH PRAYER TIME

(all 7.45-9pm, although days and venues change)

Rejoice in your hope, be patient in tribulation, be constant in prayer. Romans 12.12CHURCH PRAYER TIME:

Thursdays, 7.45pm at church (alternating weeks with Home Groups, except during school holidays).
Over the next year we will be trying to improve the way in which we support each other with the challenges and opportunities many of us face in the workplace. We recognise that 'secular' work has no less dignity and nobility than 'sacred' work and that all work, and the way in which we do it, matters to God. Once a month, we will have a presentation at the Thursday evening prayer event informing us of a particular person's job, followed by a time of prayer focussing on the specific needs, challenges and opportunities which have been presented to us. Over time, we hope that we will become more informed in our prayer and practical support for each other in the workplace. Our first presentation will be given on Thursday 10 April.

HOME GROUPS 2014, NEW SERIES:
"GOSPEL IN LIFE - GRACE CHANGES EVERYTHING!"

This Gospel In Life is an eight-week course about on the gospel, and how it is lived out in all of life - first in our hearts, then in community, and out into the world. The study (complied by Tim Keller) includes a video presentation in each session.

You can watch a video trailer which is linked from the author's website.

Personal study guides can be collected from the entrance display table. Please consider donating £5 to cover the cost.
We look forward to welcoming you to one of our groups!

IT'S ARRIVED:
The End Of Life As We Know It

'The End Of Life As We Know It . . . '
No, we're not talking about Noah and the Flood - although they are over at www.noahthemovie.com, where you can watch a 30 minute film, free.

What we are talking about is a great event, unfortunately, unnoticed by many people, who carry on as if nothing had happened. What a waste. A waste of opportunity. A waste of the most horrific expenditure. (Far more than the Noah movie either cost or earned.) So was it worth the cost, setting up this great 'happening'? If no-one even noticed?

Well, it didn't cost tax-payers anything, so perhaps that's why so many people are less than excited about it. Although it did come at the cost of torture and injustice - doesn't that get people going?

Apparently not.

Doesn't anyone want this new life-opportunity?

A lot of people in Matlock have actually taken it up with enthusiasm. They are - even now - experiencing the life-transformation that comes when the power of transforming love is unleashed.

Easter. Don't miss it this year.

With the arrival of Jesus, the Messiah . . .
we no longer have to live
under a continuous, low-lying black cloud.
A new power is in operation.
The Spirit of life in Christ, like a strong wind, has magnificently cleared the air,
freeing you from a fated lifetime of brutal tyranny at the hands of sin and death.

(Romans 8:1, The Message)



Why do you look for the living
among the dead?
He is not here;
He has risen!

(Luke 24:5-6, NIV)

You're welcome to drop in!
