Breathe Deep 2015

The day

Saturday 24th January 15 young people from the mission partnership within Burngreave descended on St Thomas Philadelphia. where 250 other young people and their leaders gathered for a day of prayer, worship games, and opening up some big topics that affect us all.

the day started off great with worship and a word from Bishop Stephen Croft using the lords prayer. everybody then split off to attend discussions  on big topics like poverty and loss. lunch was served by an amazing army hospitable people followed by the most fun with an inflatable assault cause, Photo Booth, crafts, circus skills and games. wrapping up the evening making a music video and worship

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.

Mission 2014

The end of July kickstarts the holiday season for many people, however this july it meant gearing up to serve. Over the past year christ church pitsmoor has undertaken detached work, prayer walking, family craft sessions and youth groups. Mission 2014 was an amalgamation of CCP’s activities into a 3 day event.

Each morning consisted of fellowship including breakfast and worship (sung and biblical reflection) moving into a time of teaching provided by Snowdrop project and Chocolate box Project. With Snowdrop the group were learning about modern slavery as well as trafficking around the world. Church Army (a linked charity to CCP) were enlightening the group about the amazing work they do with vulnerable women in Sheffield. The point of inviting these projects to share with us was to enable us to learn together about issues in our community, that we could be apart of changing.

The afternoons consisted of practical tasks to help our local community. These consisted of litter picking, park cleaning (huge thanks to Sheffield parks team), prayer walking and fun on Nottingham Cliff

Tuesday the group had a great time providing fun activities in Nottingham Cliff park. Activities included football, basketball, face painting, using the play area, bouncy castle, parachute games, bracelet making and a BBQ. The team met lots of people they had talked to while cleaning the park or litter picking. On the park members of the team also set up a prayer tent. This was well used by members of the public as a space for reflection and prayer. 2 young people on the team in particular got a lot out of praying for people they didn’t know, it was fantastic to see them grow in confidence and shearing faith.

we could have organised a mission trip in another country but it was amazing to learn about and make a different in our community.

A great article by one of the young people
