Sunday Message – 17th Dec 2017 – An Advent challenge

Minister: Peter Ratcliffe

Theme: ‘An Advent challenge’

Scripture reference(s): Mark 16:15-20 (NIV)

Summary: Peter spoke about the work that he and his family are undertaking in Paraguay to take the gospel to the tribes of the indigenous people there. He gave testimony of the miracles they have seen happening when they lay hands on the sick and people receive Jesus into their hearts. Please read further stories of their work in Paraguay on their website.

His challenge to us was to fulfil our role as believers here: to be bold and share the gospel with those we meet, work with and come into contact with. He concluded with a prayer for those who seek to be emboldened by the Holy Spirit to change lives for Jesus.

Christmas Toy Service – 4th Dec 2016

Minister: Andrea Cozens

Theme: Toy Service

Video recording: There was no video recording on this Sunday.

Andrea led the service reminding us that we’re giving the gifts back to God in recognition of how we’re blessed in comparison to most of the world. The toys and donated during the service will go to the following recipients:

  • Newcastle west end refugees
  • ‘Maggies’, St Oswalds
  • Single parent families in the local community

Liz Steele also introduced us to West End Youth Enquiry Service (WEYES), a charity which supports vulnerable young people aged 9-25 in Newcastle by offering free counselling, peer mentoring, open access youth drop-in sessions, 1:1 advice and information. The retiring collections at the Christmas services will directly fund activities and trips enabling young people to come together socially, increasing their self confidence and building life skills. (Cheques payable to “Children North East” please). Many thanks for your generosity.
