REAL FAITH AT ST JOHN’S: A number of evenings are being planned for 23rd Feb, 1st March & 8th March 8pm at St John’s. They will include clips, snacks and good conversation. Please pick up a leaflet.
INSPIRATIONAL EVENT: Bishop Mark and others are holding several inspirational events that will help us focus on the link between Mission and Prayer. ‘A Still Small Voice’ recognises that ‘Mission without Prayer is like riding a bike without a chain – lots of activity but you just don’t get anywhere.’ It is an attempt to put first things first – to help focus on our relationship with the living God. If, as individuals and as a church our relationship with God is weak, what do we have to share with the world? Many of us struggle to keep a daily discipline of prayer and quiet when we can be open to God and the direction of the Holy Spirit. A Still Small Voice, based on the story of Elijah (1 Kings 19), is designed to inspire, encourage and assist us in finding ways of praying that help strengthen our relationship with the Lord. All are invited to come on 25th February 10am-12.30pm at St Andrew’s Shifnal...further details to follow.
MEMORIAL SERVICE: St Michael’s and St John’s would like to invite you to a joint Memorial Service on Sunday 26th February 4.00pm at St Michael’s Church. It will be a service of remembering loved ones and a thanksgiving of their lives. If you would like to add a name to the ‘Naming List’ in remembrance speak to Lesley 670033.
REPORTS FOR GROUPS WITHIN CHURCH: During some of the services in January, February and March we will be hearing a short report from each group within our church eg Building, Deanery Synod, Young people’s groups etc to learn what we have been doing during 2011 in a lead up to the APCM.
