SCARBOROUGH SUNDAY


Sooty and Freddy want to remind you that there will be no meetings in Chesterfield, Alfreton or Stretton on Sunday 10th August because NLC is having a day out in sunny Scarborough.  We'll enjoy a picnic lunch together on the beach. The energetic will play rounders or football on the beach, the creative may build sandcastles, the adventurous will explore, the curious will explore the shops and the rest of us will just chill out on the beach for the afternoon!

TAKING A WELL EARNED BREAK

Dave and Alison Bunting will be on holiday from Saturday 16th August until the end of the month.  Please respect their need for a break and some family time and don't try to contact them during these two weeks. 

If you need help or would like some support there are lots of people you can ask.  If you are part of a home group you can contact your group leaders.

Even if you are not in a group you can still get in touch with one of the hg leaders.  We will always try to help.

As leaders of the Pastoral Team, Janet and Trevor Wright are also available to you and will give you support and advice if needed.

Enjoy a wonderful summer!


WHAT A SIZZLER!

Well we did it!  We cooked and gave away over 1000 burgers and sausages this Saturday.  The sizzling hot weather brought people out into town and around the crooked spire our tables were filled with people enjoying their free lunch.

A big THANK YOU to everyone at NLC for all your hard work.  We couldn't do a big event like this without everyone pitching in to help.  We appreciate all of you from those who got red noses from leafleting out in the sunshine to those who went home smelling of onions and BBQ smoke! Everyone's contribution is appreciated.

We have some people from Saturday who have expressed an interest in our Alpha course this autumn. If you (or anyone you know) have an interest in finding out more about God and what Christians believe why not book in now for the introductory session with free two course meal?

TRANSFORMERS - ARE YOU READY FOR A CHANGE?

The bible is full of transformers.  Not the kind that change from cars to robots but real people whose lives were transformed by the power of God.  


We believe God is still doing that amazing work today.  Taking people in despair and giving them a hope and a future, taking those bound up in addiction or burdened with sickness and setting them free to live a full life, taking those ashamed and full of guilt into the liberty of God's grace and forgiveness.

If you need a change in your life join us for Transformers Sunday 27th July at the Chesterfield Hotel 10.30am. If you would like to talk to someone about the change you want to see in your life contact us on 01246 200768.

"If anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old is gone and the new has come." 2 Corinthians 5:17

CHESTERFIELD STREET PASTORS - A ROYAL APPOINTMENT

Chesterfield Street Pastors were honoured with an invitation from the Lord Lieutenant of Derbyshire to a reception hosted by the Duke and Duchess of Devonshire in the Painted Room at Chatsworth on Thursday.  We were told there would be two special VIP guests.  Imagine what a delight it was to find out those guests were
Her Majesty the Queen and Prince Philip! 

Jacky from NLC was able to speak briefly with both of them about Chesterfield Street Pastors - a day to remember.
