We're organising a Saturday Church Family Treasure Trail on Saturday 19th September!
The trail starts on the footpath next to Monks Wood in Fairlands Park (not the Lakes). Park opposite the football ground on the A602. The nearest bus stop is opposite Pizza Hut on Monks Hood Way. Look for the yellow ribbons and a friendly guide from Bunyan!
Head along between 12-4pm and see if you can work out the clues! Don't forget to take paper and a pen and/or a phone to record your answers.

Did you know that Stevenage Vineyard launched a Stevenage Money and Debt Advice Service last month for local residents? It is open to all churches or church members who wish to be involved in either a befriending capacity or to receive training as a debt coach. Initially to be run remotely this will move to a drop-in service as restrictions ease! Please share the news!

Today, we especially remember and pray for those parents, carers, guardians, grandparents and parent figures, who are supporting children in adjusting to school. As they look ahead to the coming weeks, look back on the past few months, and plan for today, may they know God holding them.

Today, as we get ready for the start of term, we're praying especially for teaching staff everywhere... if you know a teacher, TA, support staff or any in education, pray for them and maybe drop them a note of encouragement, as they get ready for a whole new school year full of some unique challenges and opportunities
Let us seek God's guidance and direction so that we may walk in His ways, following His leading every day.
