Keys to Health and Wholeness event
Jun
16
to Jun 17

Keys to Health and Wholeness event

This event, run by Freedom in Christ Ministries, is designed to equip you with a clear, straightforward understanding of the Biblical principles for wholeness, health and healing. It will help you live a fruitful, whole life by embracing God’s guidelines for good health and will give you practical tools for helping yourself and others.

We will look at health and wholeness from a medical perspective seated firmly within a Biblical worldview. This means that we will not just consider the physical body but will consider your whole being (body, soul and spirit) as well as the potential effects of the unseen spiritual world on health and wholeness.

You will learn keys to help you resolve health issues that you do not need to put up with and discover how to live well despite the limitations of your physical body.

We will consider questions such as:

·         what can I do practically to be as healthy as possible?

·         how do spiritual issues affect physical health?

·         under what circumstances can we expect to see supernatural healing today?

This event is for any Christian who has an interest in understanding health issues from a Biblical perspective. It will also bring useful insights to church leaders and Christian health professionals into how to help those in their care find wholeness.

To view or download the publicity leaflet click here- feel free to print it out and distribute it.

Speakers: Steve Goss (International Director of Freedom in Christ Ministries), Alison FleetwoodSue Sorensen and Mary Wren, (all GPs with wide experience of Freedom and healing ministries).

Cost: £20 to Emmanuel people - book via Richard Alty fic@emmanuel.org.uk

Friday evening 16th June, 2017: 7.30-9.30pm.  Tea/Coffee and registration from 7pm.

Saturday 17th June, 2017, 9.15am - 4.30pm.

At The Durham Centre

Burn during Thy Kingdom Come
May

Burn during Thy Kingdom Come

As you may know, we’re coming up to the days of "Thy Kingdom Come”, a prayer initiative launched in 2016 by Archbishop Justin Welby. As it says in their website…. 

"Between 25th May and 4th June, communities and churches around the world are gathering together to pray that their friends, families and neighbours come to know Jesus Christ. Prayer events of all shapes and sizes will take place across the 10 days, including 24-7 prayer rooms, prayer days, prayer walks and half nights of prayer. Cathedrals, churches and other venues will host Beacon Events, gathering people across towns and cities to worship and to pray for the empowering of the Holy Spirit for effective witness.”

It’s something that’s stretching out beyond the Anglican church, and stirring the whole body of Christ to seek him. 

So we’re really glad to be timing our monthly burn to join in with this call to prayer, and we’ll be worshipping and seeking His face first and then interceding for Durham and wider with the same heart… that the Father would come and visit our land with His mercy and turn our hearts back to Him. 

We’re gathering after 7:30pm which is when "48 hours of Prayer” has ended just up the road in Chester-le-Street. If you’d like to join us in a home based setting for an hour... or two... or a few… it would great to have you with us.

And if you want to track Thy Kingdom Come more widely have a look here.

ECFC Celebration

Our football team Emmanuel Church FC is to fold this summer, at the end of the current season.

In the eight years we have been in action, we have seen well over 100 lads involved in the team. Some have become Christians, many more have spent time with Christians they would never have done otherwise. We hope and pray the impact of the club will be great, perhaps beyond what we will ever see or know. 
Thank you to everyone who has supported the club - your prayers and encouragement have been greatly appreciated.

We would like everyone to join us for a Farewell Celebration on Saturday 20th May.
A Ryan Marklew All Time ECFC XI will play a match against a Steve Brooke Current ECFC XI, at the Riverside at Chester-le-Street, kick-off 2pm. Entry is free.
There will then be an awards ceremony, speeches and a buffet at the Queen's Head pub, Chester-le-Street, DH3 3BJ, from 4pm to 8pm. Tickets for this part of the event are available on the day, priced £5. Children are welcome at the pub until 8pm.

But ECFC is not completely finished. We will continue to have a more casual kickabout each Thursday evening. Everyone is welcome, all abilities. If you are interested, contact Ben Westerman, Mike Elliot or Mark Tallentire.
