Prayers for Bridge Builders

Posted by Bunyan Team on October 13, 2020 at 9:25 AM

With schools closed to visitors Bridge Builders are having to rethink the way they engage with schools. This month they will be videoing a re-written version of The Christmas Journey which schools can then sign up to watch virtually.

 

Schools that sign up will be given a school-friendly craft, and links to the videos.

 

Please pray both that the schools will sign up and for the children who won’t be doing all their normal Christmas plays and Nativities!

Bunyan Family Treasure Trail - Saturday 17th October

Posted by Bunyan Team on October 10, 2020 at 5:40 AM

 

 

Great news!!! Bunyan is arranging another Family Treasure trail for our whole church family on Saturday 17th October - everyone from Saturday and Sunday Church are welcome to come along and join in the fun!

 

The Family Treasure Trail will be in St Nicholas Park (SG1 4PT) and is wheelchair/buggy friendly.

 

A Bunyan welcomer will be in the car park which is accessed from Pilgrims Way. Just turn up whenever you're ready between 12 and 3.30pm and see if you can solve our mystery word. You may want to bring paper and pencil to jot down the answers.

 

To celebrate Harvest we invite you to bring a tin of fruit or vegetables which will be donated to the Food Shed.
For more information about this and future Bunyan Family Treasure Trails please see this month's I Wonder activity sheet.

A thought for Friday!

Continuing the thinking...

In our service last Sunday one of the things that Andrew encouraged us to do was to pray God's promises.

Join the AMEN chorus!!

Posted by Bunyan Team on October 5, 2020 at 8:20 AM

 

A reminder we're looking for people to join in with next Sunday's service! It's only a quick one - less than 40 seconds!

If you could record yourself singing a voice only version of the Amen chorus (link below), and email it to Matt Smith on llewellynsmith@yahoo.co.uk or WhatsApp on 07968191087 by Wed 7th Oct that'd be fantastic! (try listening to it on headphones on one device, and recording you singing it on another)

We're hoping to get as many people as possible - all ages/abilities!

Sunday Service - October 4th

Morning all! Here's the link for our Sunday Service: http://youtube.com/watch?v=76NDEFvTlXI

Following on from our Sunday service where we explored the importance of founding our prayers in praise and adoration why not take some time to read through the words of Psalm 145? Let the words of the psalmist inspire you to rejoicing in God. Why not consider rewriting the psalm in your own words,? Or simply allow the words to lead you into praising God in spoken words or song.
