We are preparing for Pentecost. Luke will be bringing some inspiration to encourage us to seek, commit, wait and let the presence of God take us deeper. We don’t want to be surprised by an opportunity this Pentecost, so let’s prepare heart and mind well, and see intentionally allow God to lead us to where He wants us. You can catch the service premiere at 10:30am by visiting cheltenhamelimchurch.org/media via the link below or heading over to our YouTube channel.
Sunday morning at 9:30am
This is a precious time we spend together in order to pray. We seek God's plans for our church and call for the Holy Spirit to be with us as we venture into each of our days. We will be doing this via a video messaging app called Zoom, so make sure you’re connected to join in.
We're now using a new recurring meeting code for this, which will be sent out to our members via email later in the week. Once you've received it, you can save the code or go back to the email each time to log in. We'll also put reminders out in case you miss it. If you want to be involved and are not on our member's list, then please do drop us a message via our prayer page (link below).
You can now give to us through your smartphone. Download the GIVT app, scan this QR code & give. It's simple, easy to use & effective in making sure we can continue to release ministry through this church.
You may be in a position where you can help us. If you are not, we seek not to put any burden on you whatsoever. We do therefore have three ways you can help us:
1. Pray with us. Absolutely nothing will be as impactful as prayer in this season. Let us never lose sight of the hope we have in Jesus Christ.
2. Serve with us. You may be fit and healthy; in which case, in order to open more, we need more hands to help serve people in need. this could be through delivering to those in isolation, or helping us help those who are able to come to our site.
3. Give financially. Would you consider giving via a standing order? If you don’t giftaid to us, please can we ask you to giftaid to us also. If you normally give by cash, can we ask you to put a cheque to us in the post instead?
We want to say a huge thank you to all of the sacrificial gifts, the tithes, the offerings, the generosity and the heart behind it. The church is able to do more today because of the incredible giving of our community and beyond. Thank you so much. We pray for this to increase, so that in the days, weeks and months ahead, we don’t just put on church, but we help individuals get what they need and encounter a Saviour in Christ Jesus. We cannot do this without you, so thank you.
Foodbank open Wednesdays and Fridays to clients looking for food; Tuesday- Friday, 9:30-3pm for donations
We want to say a huge thank you to everyone who is giving their time, energy or finance to the cause right now. We are successfully feeding hundreds of people each week, whilst keeping donations coming in, and volunteers safe. It’s a big task right now, so your support, whether prayerfully or otherwise, is nothing other than encouraging. Big news currently, is the team are working extra hard behind the scenes so that we can be a full delivery service foodbank. This means those in need will not have to leave their homes to get the help they need. A huge thank you goes to volunteers from GCHQ for helping make this possible.
Please keep supporting any way you can, our church is playing a part in making a monumental difference to someone else’s life right now. So let’s get behind it, let’s own our part to play in ti as a church, and let’s help as many as possible.
