Riding Lights Theatre Company – Fantastic Acts!

We have the amazing privilege of hosing the Riding Lights Theatre Company as they bring to us Fantastic Acts. The tour will be with us on 27th November at 7:30pm. Below is some helpful information regarding the show from the Riding Lights website.

Riding Lights Take On The Book Of Acts… And Beyond

Julia needs some space.

Away from constant pressure, the whirlwind of work. Somewhere to find a bit of balance. The Mediterranean, perhaps? Sun, sea and… a few surprises.

What she discovers goes way beyond ‘switching off’. Extraordinary stories, random acts of kindness, blindness and divineness… but a bucketload of questions.

Can the unsettling power and people of the book of Acts help her find what she’s looking for?

Could their fantastic acts help her stay on her feet in a cross current of misgivings and hope, persecution, faith and risk?

In classic Riding Lights style – with laughter, insight, vivid story-telling and surprising energy for a holiday in the sun – FANTASTIC ACTS! invites you to take an invigorating dip into the remarkable lives of the men and women who formed the first churches.

Following acclaimed tours of INHERITANCE and A DIFFERENT DRUM, Riding Lights new play is touring autumn 2014.

Touring the UK 8 October to 29 November 2014.

Tickets: £10 (groups – buy 10 and get the 11th free)
National Box Office: 01904 613000 or book online

Please note: there are no additional charges for booking via the phone or in person.
Booking online includes a £1.50 charge per transaction.

“As i walk”

Well, we’ve done it! Very satisfying. Superb support from Chris Limb and Chris Barber who walked every step with faith and determination. We had a bit of a low point as we slogged along the road from Swinton to Rotherham in the absence of an expected towpath on the canal. A 4 mile to Rotherham sign popped up, followed by a hill up to Rawmarsh, but real guts and determination (including Jill O’Sullivan who had joined us for the day) clicked in and we made it into Rotherham, total of 15 miles for the day. On our diverted way through Swinton, Jill met a work colleague who was passing in a car, and coming into Rotherham we ‘bumped’ into an contact from my HMP Doncaster days, another one of those God moments. Here is the prayer we have been giving out to anyone we have met on the way:

“As I walk through life
during the smooth quiet times,
the rough difficult times,
the foggy, unclear times,
please give me a sense that Your Presence is with me
At this moment may I know that my footsteps have a guide
and a sure hand to lead me”

Breath Deep

We had a great day on Saturday 25th January, 2014 with 200 young Christians from all over south Yorkshire for Breathe deep!

12 young people went from our mission partnership which is fantastic. We had a great day worshiping God, exploring being a Christian in different settings, playing games, eating, laughing and having a great time.

Visit to Barnsley FC

P1040523Visit to Barnsley FC
We visited Barnsley FC on Bank Holiday Monday to take part in Bruce Dyer’s Love Life Festival. Bruce is a Christian ex-pro footballer who has a passion for working in prisons, particularly HMP Doncaster where Philip, our vicar, used to be Chaplain. Bruce continues his work there and the Festival raised money for his charity. The picture shows one of our young people, Demetrius, with Bruce.

Alpha Away Day

 

We had a great day over at Woodsetts Church for our Alpha Holy Spirit Day. We enjoyed great teaching, fun together, intimate worship, prayer ministry and a lovely pub lunch followed by a short walk. About 25 of us spent the day together.
