“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.

One year – congratulations!

It’s one year today since Philip and Frances joined us at Christ Church – congratulations to them both!  And a big thank you to them for all the hard work and energy they’ve put into their first year here.  We thank God for all that has been achieved, for the new friendships and relationships formed, for the growth in the Kingdom, and we pray for God’s blessing on Philip and Frances in the next year.

One year on :: 4 May 2011 :: Rev Philip Ireson inducted at CCP

Confirmations with the new Bishop of Doncaster

Last night saw the confirmation of 9 people at Christ Church, with the new Bishop of Doncaster the Rt Rev Peter Burrows.  The church was packed, the atmosphere full of celebration, and there was a true sense of God’s presence with us.
