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.

Martin & Bekah Neil - Drum Workshops and Worship Night
Oct

10:00 AM10:00

Martin & Bekah Neil - Drum Workshops and Worship Night

We are so glad to welcome Martin and Bekah Neil for another day of drums, intercession and worship. We had such a good time last year… this time we’re expecting God to release even more though these wonderful ministers.

Martin is perhaps best known as the drummer for prophetic worship pioneer, Kevin Prosch, and Martin and Bekah were first with us in Durham with Kevin when he visited us a few years back. He is an amazing drummer.... genuinely world class!! But what makes their ministry so special is the heart that he and Bekah carry... to see the sounds of the nations redeemed for King Jesus. They travel extensively into many cultures, building relationship and sharing the heartbeat and rhythms of different people groups at source; and then bringing those sounds as part of the well of worship rising up in the church as God restores us as His House of Prayer for all nations. Their charity "Voices from the Nations" also puts hands and feet to that, by assisting with grassroots developmental work in the communities they have been welcomed into.
http://www.voicesfromthenations.org/

They are gifted teachers and communicators, so having them with us for a whole day is an incredible opportunity and we really want to make the most of it. There will be three different sections which should means there will be something accessible for all.

10:00 - 12:00 - Kit drum workshop - A focused time for drum specialists, especially for kit drummers. Martin will encourage, inspire and equip out of his massive experience and anointing. So if you are a drummer… don’t miss it :)

13:30 - 16:30 - Drum circle workshop - Drum circles can be great as community worship times, which can work for all levels of ability so don’t rule yourself out :) Martin and Bekah are going to stir us up to break out of our boxes and see God moving among us through Holy Spirit led drumming. As well as some practical technique and inspiration, they are going to share what they have been been exploring (e.g with Native American christians) about drums and intercession.

19:30 - later - Worship and Prayer night.. We’re going to seek the Lord 😃 with no fixed agenda… but it will be something fresh and amazing, more drum and vocal led than ’normal. And we’ll hear wonderful stories of God at work among the nations.

We’re leaving lots of room for the Lord to steer us through the day, so there will be a lot of flexibility during these times. But this is going to be epic… really hope you can join us for some or all of it.

Some practicalities...

If you are coming to the kit drum workshop it would be great if you could let us know in advance and give us an idea of your experience level.

If you are coming to the Drum Circle workshop and you have any hand drums PLEASE BRING THEM. We will have lots of spare instruments which we will share around… but if you bring your own you can use it all the way through 😃 and if you have any spare to share.. awesome!

Tea and coffee will be provided during the day. We are fairly close to Durham centre so there will be places to grab some lunch nearby

We will be taking up a freewill offering at each session to support Martin and Bekah in their travelling.
