 This weekend we will all be meeting together at the Winding Wheel in Chesterfield 10.30 am.  It's always a great time when we gather together to worship but on this occasion we have something special to celebrate.  Peter has been given the all clear and is feeling well enough to resume preaching duties.  We are so grateful to God for sustaining him & Susan through the period of his treatment and over the coming months we are trusting for an accelerated return to full health.  We are looking forward to hearing God's word from Peter this Sunday.

For we died and were buried with Christ by baptism. And just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glorious power of the Father, now we also may live new lives.  Romans 6:4

This Sunday will be a very special one for Tom.  His baptism is a declaration to the world that he has chosen to leave his old life behind and move on with his new life following Jesus.  It would be good to have as many people there as possible to support him.

If you are interested in finding out more about baptism contact Dave on 01246 200768.

As timings are a bit close together we have decided to cancel Cafe Church just for this week but we will be back next week as usual.

Everyone warmly welcome.

We get excited about Easter at NLC but not just on the prescribed Sunday.  Every day has the potential for new life in Jesus and a fresh start whenever we need it.  Because he died all our wrong doing is forgiven; the mistakes we made in the past and the ones we made this morning.  Because he rose from the dead he made a way for us to have eternity with our Father in heaven.  We live in the resurrection power of Jesus and he reaches out to the lost world through us.

 I also pray that you will understand the incredible greatness of God’s power for us who believe him. This is the same mighty power that raised Christ from the dead and seated him in the place of honour at God’s right hand in the heavenly realms.  Ephesians 1:19-20

Join us this Sunday 10.30 am for a family celebration of what Easter is really all about.

After the return of the 'Beast from the East' all of our meetings had to be cancelled last Sunday because of the snow and ice. Police had advised people not to go out unless it was really necessary and the repercussions from a slip on the ice are too long term to risk.  So we hope you had a lovely cosy time at home or sledging for the more adventurous!
This coming Sunday we will all be gathering for a whole church meeting and our speaker will be our own Martyn Rowe.  Looking forward to a great time together.

Don't forget the clocks go forward this weekend

Really excited that we have Les and Louise Isaac in Chesterfield this weekend.  On Friday he will be visiting the School Pastors at work in Parkside School and hopefully speaking with both staff and children.  On Saturday he is speaking at a lunch which is now fully booked with 80 people having tickets to hear him. But you can join us on Saturday for the Commissioning Service for our newest recruits at the Crooked Spire at 7.30pm where Les will be the speaker.  Grab the opportunity to hear this inspiring speaker.

This Sunday Dave is bringing the second part of his word about the need for the Church to awaken, rise up and reach for everything God intends her to be.  How about praying for breakthrough for each other this week?  That we can all rise up, clothed in God's strength and dazzle the enemy with our, graciously given, garments of splendour.

Awake, awake, Zion, clothe yourself with strength!
Put on your garments of splendour, Jerusalem, the holy city....
 rise up, sit enthroned, Jerusalem.
Free yourself from the chains on your neck Isaiah 52

The snow and freezing conditions mean that George Jarvis will not be able to be with us this Sunday. We will still be meeting on Sunday for as many of you as can make it but please make your safety a priority and if conditions are too treacherous stay at home in the warm.  For those that can make it Dave will be speaking briefly and we will worship and break bread together. 

Same for Cafe Church 6pm at The Compass - we'll be there if you can make it come and join us.
