God’s family is worldwide, and His heart is for people of all nations to come to Him.

This year, we are excited to be welcoming our friend Finny Philip, who was formerly with us as a PhD student and is now Principal of Filadelfia Bible College, India, to speak.

To whet your appetite, here’s what happened on International Sunday 2018.

An evening with Chris Done

An evening with Chris Done

Our own Chris Done is hosting an evening discussion, for women in the church. She explains…

It’s an exciting time in the church, God is on the move, and one of the things I get really excited about is for everyone to grow into everything that God has made them to be. And while that is 'everyone' it’s perhaps especially women as I think there are some specific barriers we face in our culture to be passive rather than passionate.

To not be pushy, to wait till we are asked - if they haven't invited us to do this then it surely means they think we'd be rubbish at it.... Is this ringing any bells? I want to talk about how Jesus sees us, and how he's made each one of us with gifts and talents to use to his glory and to build the church. And I want to motivate each one of us to go and use them!

I'll do a short talk about how my journey of life and faith worked out, then we can do Q&A and take it from there on any direction you want to explore. 

 It’s Friday 11th January, 7pm for wine and cheese, 7:30pm start.

At: 22 Herefordshire Drive, Belmont, Durham, DH1 2DQ

Please let us know if you are coming so we know how much wine & cheese to get!  Contact either Chris Done, Anne Ng or Janet Lawrence if you wish to come along.

Reachout

Reachout

Have you ever felt prompted to pray for your neighbours?

And somehow that's led to getting to know them, becoming friends. But then how do we start to talk about Jesus when they don't have any framework to think about faith?

And how do we keep going when we are often the only Christian in the room - which means we don't get any feedback or other ideas on how to give a different perspective.

So we're starting a group to encourage people like us, where we can share our experience of being the only Christian in the room and get ideas from each other and pray/support/train each other. Everyone is welcome. Whatever your experience of reaching out to people who don't know Jesus, come and share it! Let's encourage each other to step out and see Jesus change peoples hearts and minds.

The idea is that these meetings will run regularly - roughly once a quarter - so that we can continue to grow and see Jesus teach us how to become fishers of men. For more details contact chrisdone123@gmail.com

Pastoral Ministry conference
Nov

9:00 AM09:00

Pastoral Ministry conference

Daily we hear from the news and friends of increasing numbers of people experiencing mental health problems both in our communities and churches. Often support is difficult to find and statutory services have lengthy waiting times. As individual Christians and churches we are challenged to respond and help all find strategies to cope and healing to enjoy the ‘life in all it’s fullness’ which Jesus came to offer to everyone. However, we often feel ill equipped to respond in positive ways of supporting those who are seeking comfort, help and love.

On Saturday 17th November, 9:00am to 4:00pm, we have an opportunity to develop skills, knowledge and confidence to reach out and support those experiencing mental health difficulties both in our churches and communities by attending the Pastoral Ministry Conference which is to be held at The Durham Centre (Emmanuel Church Durham).

Speakers include friends from the If U Care Share Foundation; Eileen Brady; Christine Knowles; Joss Bray and a member of our own church with specialist knowledge and experience in supporting those experiencing a range of mental health issues.

Topics covered include: Suicide Prevention; supporting those who Self Harm, are experiencing Bereavement or supporting those will long term care needs, Domestic Abuse and Violence, Addiction; Mental Health Awareness; Healing from debilitating illness.

Who should attend: any member or the church or friends who seek positive strategies and an increased understanding of how to support those experiencing mental health difficulties in our communities and churches.

Lunch and all refreshments during the day will be provided (a donation of £5 would be welcome). However, no charge is being made to attend the conference in order to enable all who wish to attend to do so.
