Church Prayer Meeting (10/05/2017)
The May prayer meeting was a rich time of blessing, as we had the privilege to hear from and pray for the work of:
- Our mission-partner Margaret Rugira as she soon heads back out to Japan. Continue to pray for Margaret, currently in London as she prepares to go back to Japan, that the Lord would provide for this work.
- Sunday Club, Darren gave us a good sense of the needs and direction of the Christ Church children's work. Continue to pray for Darren and the team as they reach out for new leaders to join in September.
- The church leadership and staff team, Joel Dixon one of the church wardens walked us through some of the thinking going into the churches shared purpose as we seek the Lords help with our future planning. Continue to pray for the PCC and implementation group.
The Heart of Things (23/04/2017)
Between the 23 - 30 April we hosted a resident artist by the name of Paul Hobbs, Paul seeks to communicate the gospel through many mediums of art which leave you pondering, wondering and scratching your head, enticing you to think hard about what the piece of art is saying. Paul along with Christ Church hosted many events throughout the week which saw around 1300 people through the doors to discover more. It was a great week, take a look at some of the pictures for yourself here.
It was great to gather for the annual meeting on Wednesday night. There is much to give thanks for but also much for us to do as we seek to serve Christ here in Cambridge. For those who weren’t able to make it, we wanted to let you know of the following election results:
- Vern Farewell
- Tim Ensor
(with a recommendation that Joel Dixon and Rob Smith serve alongside them as Deputy Wardens)
New PCC members
Deanery Synod reps
(who also join the PCC)
Website launch! (05/04/17)
We are delighted to be launching the new Christ Church website at this years annual meeting. The project started back in May 2017 as a small team from church was put together to completely redesign the website and add some new functionality. There are many new features including a members section - do contact the office to obtain the password if you are part of our church family.
Special thanks go to the web design company, 'There is something more', for their advice and delivering the project on time.
