Christians Together for Chesterfield have been putting on a 'Songs of Praise' in January for a few years now and each time the church building is packed with Christians across the town coming together to give thanks and praise to God.  The music reflects the diversity of our styles of worship and the speakers reflect the diversity of ways in which we serve.  There are people doing good works all over our town that we never get to hear about save at such events.  So a diary date for 2018:

Saturday 20th January 6.30pm at Holy Trinity Church

Songs of Praise

Everyone welcome

Cafe Church is taking a break over Christmas. One reason is that we have such a great programme of events taking place that we need to free up some time somewhere but also Ben and Talita will be visiting family in Brasil over the holidays.

So mark it in your brand new diary:

Cafe Church is back

Have you thought about maybe becoming a School Pastor?  If yes, then there is an opportunity to find out more.  On Saturday 20th January we have the National UK Coordinator of School Pastors coming to do the first training session, 'Roles and Responsibilities of a School Pastor.'

It is a full day's training 9.30am - 3.30pm at the Compass on West Bars.  Drinks will be provided but you would need to bring a packed lunch.  No strings attached, you are not committing yourself but if you are interested please come along.

Dear friends and partners,
This week I am flying to Kenya with a team for a week of mission in Busia, close to the Kenya / Uganda border. We will be partnering with One by One ministries and spending time with all the beautiful children and King's Children's home in the village of Bumala B as well as speaking in churches. Our main evangelistic efforts will be three nights of gospel crusades in the nearby village of Mauko. A new church plant has recently started here but no gospel crusade like this has taken place before. Mauko is known for murder, crime and withcracft. We need people to stand with us in prayer that the gospel will break chains and we will see a mighty harvest of souls in this area.
Yours in the mighty Name of Jesus,
Andrew Murray
