This Sunday's service (August 20)

10.30am in Deighton Gates School

Alastair is leading this service, and Chris will be speaking on Psalm 145 - "A Symphony in G".

As always, everyone is welcome to join us.

Prayer Encounter

8.45 (prompt!) - 9.15am, Saturday, August 19 at Margins

Praying together is - or certainly should be - and important aspect of the life of our church.

Chris Baugh will be leading us in this opportunity to gather to worship and thank God, to bring to him those things that concern us, and to listen to his response.

Do come along if you can. Optional coffee and doughnuts are served for those who would like them.

Church members' meeting

7.45pm, Wednesday, August 23 in Margins Bookshop

Time for us to gather as a church, to listen, pray, speak and consider where the Lord is leading us, as well as discussing various practical matters.

Do make an effort to be there!

Dates for your diary...

Knitted Bible Exhibition

11am - 4pm, 19/20, 26/27 August at St Helen's, Bilton-in-Ainsty, YO26 7NN, and also at All Saints Church, Wighill, LS24 8BQ, on August 28.

This exhibition has been created by knitters from St George's URC in Hartlepool. It depicts no less than thirty-three Bible scenes which will be displayed around the church, and is obviously a thing not to be missed.

Admission is free, but donations are welcome. Light refreshments will be available, we are promised.

Churches Together Prayers for the Community

9.15-10.00am on Wednesday September 6
in the Quiet Room at Wetherby Methodist Church

This is a great opportunity to meet with other Christians from around the town to pray for our community, and to enjoy a coffee and fellowship afterwards in the coffee lounge. These monthly meetings take place on the first Wednesday of every month.

Spring Harvest comes to... Harrogate!

Harrogate Conference Centre

April 3 - 7, 2018, Harrogate Convention Centre

Yes, Spring Harvest is no longer confined to Butlins-by-the-sea. You will be able to experience all the usual SH activities a mere bus ride from home! (Although there is an indoor camping option, too!)

Take a look at the video...

From the Big Start all age worship celebration to the After Hours entertainment, and first-class children's and youth programmes, there's something for everyone.

The theme of the week is 'Only the Brave - Determined Discipleship'. It's based on James' epistle and will explore what it is to live a life of determined discipleship and give a rallying cry to join the everyday adventure that lies ahead. We are discipled to make disciples. We get one chance at this life – let’s live it.

Booking is now open, and there's a generous early-bird discount if you're quick enough:
Adult: £99; Child 6-14: £79; Child 2-5: £59; under 2: free.
Full price for adults and children will be £139 and £119 respectively.

For more information and to book, visit the Spring Harvest web site.

To get advanced warning of other church and Churches Together events, keep a close eye on our church calendar - and avoid those embarrassing clashes of dates!
