ALFRETON'S HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO THE QUEEN


New Life in Alfreton hosted a special community event in honour of our Queen's 90th birthday last Sunday.  After a celebration of 'The Servant Queen and the King She Serves' a wonderful buffet was enjoyed together with crafts and activities for children.  It is clear from what she has said that the Queen has a living faith in God so celebrating her life of service and her birthday within our church family meeting felt quite appropriate. 

Her Majesty was not able to join the party unfortunately - but Sylvia in her finery made a very good stand in!

JUST 10 DAYS TO GO UNTIL WATOTO ARE BACK!

The final countdown is on until the Watoto African Children's Choir are with us in Chesterfield!

"Since 1994, Watoto children’s choirs have toured internationally as ambassadors for Watoto. The vision and mission are presented through music and dance, which is an energetic fusion of contemporary gospel and traditional African rhythm. These ‘Concerts of Hope’ are a lively demonstration of the life-changing love experienced by the children of Watoto. The experience benefits the children academically, socially, emotionally and spiritually and is designed to train and equip them as future leaders."

"Watoto is currently operating out of Uganda, East Africa where over 2,000 children and infants are cared for in three children’s villages and babies’ homes. 2,100 women are empowered through Watoto’s Living Hope initiative."

David Ochola (19) David, a former child soldier who came into Watoto in 2008 comments, “Life in captivity was unbearable. Because of the terrible things I did, I used to have nightmares. But in Watoto today, I’m no longer tormented by nightmares. Instead, I now have a dream to rebuild my country. I used to take life but now I want to give life.”
