News for 9.6.24

Dear Friends,

Here is the update for this week.

A little word 

And the things you have heard me say in the presence of many witnesses entrust to reliable people who will also be qualified to teach others. 2 Timothy 2.2 (NIV)

Paul encouraged his young friend Timothy to pass on the good news. He was to pass on the teaching he had received to others, who in turn would pass it on. Without that process we wouldn’t have heard it! There are many different ways to learn, but we can all think of those who have the gift of teaching, who have inspired and encouraged us.

Things to pray for

  • Give thanks for all those who have taught us well on our journey of faith.
  • For our small groups who meet in the week.
  • For our world – that nations might work together to build a brighter future.

Upcoming Events

Harry Baker

We are excited to welcome Harry Baker back to Christ Church Pitsmoor on Tuesday 25th June at 7:30pm. He brings his new tour, Wonderful:

“After a sellout Edinburgh Fringe Run and subsequent 40-date UK Tour, World Poetry Slam Champion Harry Baker is back with a brand new show celebrating the wonder that is being alive. Featuring brand new poems about death, postcodes and his favourite German wheat bear Schöfferhofer, The maths-loving, TED-talking, German-speaking, battle-rapping, happy-crying, self-bio-writing unashamed human brings his signature playfulness and poignancy that has made him a fan favourite and reached millions of people all over the world.”

Will’s Ordination

Will’s ordination to the priesthood will be on Saturday 29 June at 4pm at Sheffield Cathedral. If you know you want to attend let Pip know as there are some ticketed seats available. (There should be room for everyone we just can’t guarantee you a posh seat!)

On Sunday 30 June, when we welcome our friends from St Peter’s, it will be Will’s first celebration of Holy Communion. We will have a Bring & Share lunch together afterwards – full details nearer the time.
