Jesus said

‘I give you a new commandment, that you love one another. Just as I have loved you, you also should love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another.’

Charities

Christian Aid for Displaced Refugees in Lebanon and Iraq Is the new charity we are supported and donations are greatly appreciated.

35 Chapel Walk (www.35chapelwalk.com) is the charity for the coffee collections during the next quarter (March 2019- May 2019). It is an art space in the centre of Sheffield; a community for creative people who dare to imagine that the world can be a better place. Based on a foundation inclusive love, the intention is to create a space where lives are transformed, to stand in solidarity with those who are hurting and those whose voice is seldom heard.

The Archer Project is in need of a continuing supply of Pot Noodles, tinned fish or fruit with ring pulls and breakfast cereals.  Don’t forget to support the Food Bank with an extra item when you do your shopping.  Please donate unwanted clean clothing/shoes/blankets/sleeping bags to Ben’s Place via Alan Brailey.

Thank you for your continued support to all these charities.

Holy habits: Fellowship

Holy Habits Book Club The next meeting will be on Sunday 30th June, after the morning service in Room 5.  We will be discussing Charlotte Gray by Sebastian Faulks published by Vintage Random House (1999).  Charlotte Gray is a young Scottish woman who goes to occupied France in 1942 to run a simple errand for a British special operations group and ends up being drawn into an extraordinary Fellowship of resistance fighters and assimilated French Jews, forging lasting bonds amidst the worst of humanity.  The Holy Habits Book Club books discussed to date can be found in a box in the 'books' cupboard in Room 2.  These books will be put on a table with the other books to borrow during the coffee mornings on Saturdays. We ask only that you let Alison know if you have borrowed one of the Holy Habits books from the box and that you also return it to her so that she can keep track of all the Holy Habits books. Thank you.  

We are hoping some of you will feel inspired to write a piece for the June issue of Banner Headlines on the theme of Fellowship.  It may be a poem or an account of a time when you experienced the joys of fellowship with a group of people.  If you feel inspired, please send your piece to Terry, Alison or Christine (or to all of us), ideally by the 15th, but if it will be later, please let one of us know something will be coming.  

Following the Clearance Sale

Items left in the church will be collected together and a skip will be ordered for 25 May to clear the schoolroom prior to the forthcoming auction.

Sponsored bike ride – it is not too late to sponsor Sean and Amelia for their gruelling 250 mile ride through the Brecon Beacons and Snowdonia to raise money for our community partnership. Please see Sean if you would like to sponsor them.

Save the dates there will be an Away day at the Peveril Centre in Castleton on Saturday 22nd June from approx. 9.30 am to approx. 4.30 pm with a Bring-and-Share Lunch.  We will explore the Holy Habit of Fellowship during the day.  For our Sunday morning service the next day, Sunday 23rd June, we will return to Castleton to share with the people there in worship in the cafe-style, led by Tim.  We will, of course, be arranging transport for all those who need it.  More information and sign-up sheets will follow.  

Away day Planning Meeting Tim and the Holy Habits Planning Group would like to invite everyone to an open meeting on Wednesday 22nd May from 7.30 pm in Room 6 to share ideas about what we would like to happen at the Church Away day in Castleton on Saturday 22nd June.  We will be talking about hospitality and fellowship at our away day.
