This coming Sunday at 10.30 is our Worship for All Service - children coming along for the children's choir can be dropped off from 9.30am. As usual, Sam has a great song to teach you.
This week we are looking at 'Facing Big Challenges ' and Sheila will be offering us the chance to rise to some challenges! Is anyone learning to play scales? Can anyone recite their times tables? Do a hand-stand or lift weights? Everyone welcome, and don't worry, volunteering for challenges is strictly optional!
Prayer Day Saturday February 25th 2017 10 AM to 4 PM in St Peter and St John's Church
At the end of this month a number of bids will be submitted which, if they are successful, will bring us to an important crossroads in the life of our church. If we are awarded grants from these bodies we will be in position to go ahead with Phase 1 of our church redevelopment plan.
We are therefore holding day of prayer this coming Saturday 25th February and would like to ask as many of you as possible to come along and pray for all or part of the day on Saturday . The programme for the day is:
10 AM morning prayer followed by quiet prayer individually around a number of prayer stations.
10:50 AM coffee
11:15 AM praying together around a craft activity or continuing to pray individually using the prayer stations
1230 simple lunch (jacket potatoes and fillings please sign up today in church or let Yvonne Rollins know that you are coming Rugby 311728) weather permitting lunch will conclude with a prayer walk around the outside of church, praying in the places we hope to transform.
1:30 PM praying with music
2:30 PM prayer stations and/or craft option as the morning
3:15 PM cup of tea/coffee
‘Evening’ prayer together. Day ends by 4 PM
I do hope you can join us on next Saturday.
A Rugby church has received £10,000 from the Big Lottery to run language classes and to help them make big plans with local people about the future of the building and how it can serve the area.
St Peter and St John Church, Clifton Road, known locally as PJ’s, serves the Eastlands and Southfields area of Rugby, just east of the town centre. The area doesn’t have a community centre and the church wants to work with local residents and other organisations to make its building more user-friendly as a place for the community. It also wants to help with some essential services that may be needed in the area. To start with, they will put on language classes for New Arrivals from Eastern Europe and further afield and will be fundraising for a new toilet block. In the long term, they hope to re-open the front entrance that was blocked up in 1984 after a fire.
We have an exciting opportunity to support the local community by running a FREE ESOL course starting in April. This is a fantastic opportunity to help and support those with little or no spoken English. The course will run for 12 weeks term time only, spaces are limited to 10. If you know anyone who this course could really help please contact email@example.com.
Translated versions of information and poster can be obtained from firstname.lastname@example.org.
All students will be subject to an assessment during the first week to ensure correct entry level for this course.
For further details on start times please see attached poster.
