SPRING HARVEST LOCAL

7.30pm Wednesday th February at Skylark Church, Chelmsford

Gather together for an evening of heartfelt worship, inspiring teaching and an opportunity to pray for the empowering of the Holy Spirit. The book of Acts tells the story of a small group of apprehensive disciples who found themselves UNLEASHED by the Spirit to go global and lead the new church of Jesus followers.

Connect – Exploring The Teenage Brain – 29th January

Happy New Year from all at Made for More!

You are warmly invited to our second ‘Connect’ resource evening on Wednesday 29th January 7pm – 9pm, at Meadgate Church.

This event is for anyone who works with young people, in any capacity. This includes church leaders, volunteers and parents.

Understanding the biological, emotional and psychological effects of the growing teenage brain can be hugely beneficial in informing how we relate to, communicate with and love our young people.

Karen Tullett has carried out wide-ranging research on this and her previous presentation to our team was so excellent that we wanted to open up the opportunity to others.

Please find attached a letter with more information, a poster for use in church (and other) notices and a link to an evite which will help us have an idea of numbers attending. Please also see evite link below.

This event is FREE to attend!

We begin the evening with pizza and a chance to chat and get to know one another.

There will also be opportunity for group discussion, questions and prayer.

Please sign-up, invite your friends and don’t hesitate to contact us with any questions.

We look forward to seeing you there!

Warmly,

Abigail Sheldrake

Event Background

Transforming Essex logoEssex is often portrayed with a negative reputation; Essex girls and white van man!

From a vision in 2018 by a group of eight church leaders in the south of Essex, Transforming Essex is a growing family of believers pursuing God’s heart to transform Essex in all sections of society.

During 2019, Transforming Essex launched the concept of Roundtables. These are groups of like minded individuals who will join together to seek God, discuss, strategise, celebrate, communicate and act on the things God calls them to collectively, all with the aim of seeing the County thrive and see it walk in its heavenly identity.

One of these emerging groups is the Transforming Essex Intercessors Roundtable who, in partnership with Chelmsford’s City Prayer, have felt to issue this County-wide call to gather  – possibly the first time such a call has been given?

You are invited to become part the journey to see Essex transformed by the Kingdom of God.

Background

During recent General Election Campaigns, we have facilitated a Hustings at Christ Church so that the Christians of our City can have opportunity to hear the views of our local Candidates and ask questions. We were looking to do the same for the forthcoming Election, when we discovered that ARU were also looking to hold a Hustings on the same evening!

Not least because CTiC is increasingly reaching out to our Community, it seemed an ideal opportunity to collaborate with ARU and we are pleased to say that, Chaired by Rev. Dan Pierce, of St. Francis Community Church, Beaulieu, a Hustings will now be held kindly hosted by ARU on their campus.

Do pray that the Hustings go well and that the views of all are fairly represented.
