Posted in: The Inside Column- Oct 02, 2017 No Comments

Good morning and welcome to St Barnabas Stoke. If you are visiting today we hope you encounter God’s almighty grace for you and loving presence as you join us in worship. Please feel free to chat with us afterwards over a coffee and meet some of our people.

Change of date, sorry. David Riddell will now be speaking on Sunday 15 October. He will be with us at both services, and will be speaking on ‘You Shall Not Commit Adultery’. David and his wife run the Living Wisdom School of Counselling and has changed the lives of thousands of people through his counselling. David always brings a challenge. Don’t miss this opportunity to hear him speak.

Have you got your team organized for our Quiz Night? This fun night is at 7.00pm Saturday 28 October. Get a group of friends together, to test you brain matter, win some prizes and have a great night out. Tickets from the office.

A date for your diaries – Saturday 11 November for the annual church fair. If you have stuff to go into the White Elephant, you can drop items off to the Church Hall. Volunteer signup sheets for helpers will be in the foyer soon.

Have a great week

Phil

 

Tonight at St Barnabas we will be running another night of worship which we call ‘The Ambient’. What is it? It’s pretty simple really. It’s a night where we gather together to worship our God and encounter his presence, encouraging the Holy Spirit to lead and guide us and speak powerfully to us as we draw near in praise, in silence and in reverence.  This night is a city wide event, open to anyone from any church, who is passionate about spending time with God and like minded people.

What can you expect on the night? We usually start with a time of coming before God and lighting candles in expectation of what He will do, followed by worship in song (led by the Ambient band) which leads into times of silence and waiting and sharing what God is saying to us.

We always read from the bible but there is no sermon as such, and then we give room for prayer, before wrapping up with an anthem of some sort. If this kind of night appeals to you, we welcome you to join us, 7.30pm right here in the church auditorium.

Have an amazing week

Luke
