Builders - Risk Takers - Inviters - Carers - Kingdom Makers

Thirty one children joined in the fun at the Lego themed holiday club exploring the stories of the wise and foolish builders, Nehemiah, Zacchaeus and the man lowered through the roof.

The scene was set every day by Bill and Bob the Builders. A house was built together starting with the foundations and the key phrase for each day made up an acrostic of the club’s title, Brick by Brick (see heading above).

The stories were explored through crafts, games, films, memory verses and challenges – leaders commented on how the children asked if each session could last for a whole day next year as they participated wholeheartedly.

Thanks are expressed to the Rev Karen Hilsden for conceiving and putting together the programme and to the many volunteers who worked so well as a team. Now, what’s next?



 

OURCUP

The theme 'Our Cup Overflows' was taken from the lectionary readings, Psalm 23 (The Lord's My Shepherd) and Matthew 22: 1-14 (The Parable of the Wedding Banquet), for Sunday 15th October. God is so gracious and we have much to be thankful for but we also need to keep seeking His vision for us individually and as communities of believers, so that we can follow Jesus and be obedient to his will for us.

As part our Circuit's response to the District 24 hours of Prayer and Fasting, Dukinfield church was open from 10am to 7pm on Saturday October 14th.

Visitors were invited to spend time exploring seven Fast and Feast prayer stations, chosen from the list on the District prayer card. Each station was based on a colour of the rainbow. The idea for the colour theme came from the Manchester rainbow prayer, written after the MEN Arena bombing.

At each prayer station people were encouraged to Fast from the negative and Feast on the positive. There was also an area for reflection and relaxation as well as the opportunity for communal prayer.



FAST from emphasising differences - FEAST on unity of life

taken from the M&S District Prayer Card - others on the card include

Fast from discontent; Feast on gratitude.

Fast from aquisitive greed;  Feast on generous self-giving.

Fast from complaining; Feast on appreciation.

Fast from thoughts that weaken;

Feast on promises that inspire.

Fast from slavery; Feast on freedom.

Fast from the desert of meaninglessness;

Feast on the milk and honey of God's kingdom.
