Praying together in Arminghall

5 days ago

 
Praying together in Arminghall

It is an amazing privilege to be able to spend time with God, and to know that he hears our prayers—more than the best of human fathers. Across our group of churches we are meeting more regularly now, to pray that God’s kingdom will come in the world, and in our communities here, and that people will come to know Jesus. Please come and join us to pray anywhere, any time. Our prayers will cross parish boundaries as we hold the different villages before God wherever we are; please do cross them yourselves and join us as much as you can.

Lots of people around the churches have told us that they aren't sure how to share their faith, so we have planned these 2 evenings using some great material with the Archbishop of Canterbury and others, from the Thy Kingdom Come prayer and faith sharing initiative.

2017 churches open day and gift day

As part of our harvest celebrations this year, we would love to invite you to come and join us at Stoke, Caistor or Arminghall church to find out more about what our churches are doing, and the hopes and plans we have for the future. We would be really keen to hear especially about any ways you think our churches can serve our local community better. And yes, we have called it a gift day, because if you would like you can make a donation towards the upkeep of our wonderful buildings, and the work we hope to do in some of them to make them better places for the whole community. Most importantly, there will be drinks and cake for everyone! Please come and drop in. If you want to find out more, we have put gift day leaflets in all of our Free For All magazines this month, but you can get one at the church, or print and download one from the resources section above, under Gift Day. See you there!

Community Defibrillator Training (Parish Council event)

Training for use of the defibrillator which has been placed in the BT phone box at the junction of Brickle Road and Chandler Road has been arranged at St George’s Hall on Thursday 20 July beginning at 7.30pm.

The more people who know how to use the portable defibrillator, installed by the Parish Council in our community, the more chance there is of saving the life of a victim of sudden cardiac arrest.

Everyone is welcome to attend and no special skills are required, just a willingness to play an important role in the event of a sudden medical emergency.

Alpha

Alpha

Alpha is a brilliant, interactive course which is a great way to find out more about the Christian faith for the first time, to discover it again, or to deepen your understanding of some key things about following Jesus. Each evening consists of food, a talk, and the chance to discuss the evening's topic - and anything else that occurs to you! Every question, and everyone, is welcome at our next course, which is running on Monday evenings at the moment from 7.30pm.

We are meeting at the Vicarage, with food at 7.30 and a film and discussion from about 8. The film topics include questions like

Is there more to life than this?

Who is Jesus? Why did he die?

What about prayer? the Bible?

How can I be sure of my faith?

If you have other questions, you are welcome just to turn up and ask those - the film and topic are a starting point, not a restriction of any kind. If a whole term seems a big commitment, just plan to come for 2 or 3 to start with and see how you get on. If you would like to join in but Mondays are tricky, please let us know - it might be that another day would suit others better too, or that we can arrange another course another time. If you would like to come and eat with us, but have particular dietary requirements, we would love to hear from you so we can help with that too. Start with the trailer below!

Guests receive a warm welcome and enjoy homemade cakes and coffee, followed by worship, testimony, teaching and the chance to give or receive prayer. The Filling Station, which was born out of the Church of England in the West Country, has grown exponentially in terms of venues opening all over the United Kingdom and continues to serve and refresh both Church leaders, congregations and more importantly to open the eyes of those who are seeking answers to the meaning of life through the Christian faith. The Filling Station is helping to bring unity amongst believers from across the whole Church spectrum.

The Yare Valley Filling Station meets 3rd Thursday evenings most months - check for more information here: http://thefillingstation.org.uk/station/yare-valley/

Filling Station

Meeting since early 2016, the Yare Valley Filling Station is sharing an informal way of expressing the Christian faith.
Guests receive a warm welcome and enjoy homemade cakes and coffee, followed by worship, testimony, teaching and the chance to give or receive prayer. The Filling Station, which was born out of the Church of England in the West Country, has grown exponentially in terms of venues opening all over the United Kingdom and continues to serve and refresh both Church leaders, congregations and more importantly to open the eyes of those who are seeking answers to the meaning of life through the Christian faith. The Filling Station is helping to bring unity amongst believers from across the whole Church spectrum.

The Yare Valley Filling Station meets 3rd Thursday evenings most months - check for more information here: http://thefillingstation.org.uk/station/yare-valley/

New Wine Leaders' Training Day with Ian Parkinson

This day will give church leaders from across the East region the chance to take a break from the ins and outs of ministry and to worship, hear from God, and receive prayer together. We are delighted to welcome Ian Parkinson of CPAS, a friend of many in the Eastern region from his time as East and North regional director of New Wine. Ian will be sharing from his 2015 book Reignite, full of thoughtful reflection and practical wisdom on the theme of rekindling hope and purpose in the local church. He will be touching particularly on the issue of changing culture in church. All involved in church leadership - overall leaders and other leadership team members etc - really welcome.

Drinks provided, please bring your own lunch.

Donations towards costs, please. Ian’s book for sale!

Getting together to talk about prayer

1 year ago

 
Getting together to talk about prayer

Getting together to talk about prayer, Wednesday 5th October

 

As we respond as churches to the Diocese’s call to continue to grow in Discipleship, Service and Numbers, I am more and more aware of the need to pray. In the New Year, we will give time like we did last January to thinking about prayer, and this year we will respond to the struggle that many of you have expressed to me about finding the time, discipline or energy to spend time with God for ourselves. I am excited that once again this year we will have visiting speakers including Bishop Graham to help us to do this.

In the meantime I would love to do some thinking about the ways that we pray together, and I would be really glad if any and as many of you as possible would come and join at the Vicarage for coffee (& equivalents!), cake, discussion and a bit of prayer on Wednesday 5th October at 7.30pm. Just turn up on the day – and if you feel keen to bring a cake, please do let me or Cathryn know! This is in the place of the Stoke Prayer House meeting so this evening should already be in some diaries anyway!

Here are a couple of things I think worth pondering, and you might have other ideas to bring along and throw in…

  • Shall we keep doing the evening monthly meeting as it is or shall we change that?
  • I want to suggest a daytime monthly meeting following the House of Prayer format…
  • Could we have some sort of prayer meeting/service in Arminghall and Caistor every month so that there is something in all 3 parishes?
  • How are the intercessions? What is it like preparing them? what help do you need, and what ideas do you have that others might find helpful?
  • And anything you want to add in…

Hope this excites you/ whets the appetite a bit – please do come and join us!

Autumn dinner and Vision launch evening

1 year ago

 
Autumn dinner and Vision launch evening

We had a wonderful day away with the PCCs last Saturday 3rd at the Call to Prayer centre in Norwich, where we began to imagine together a future for our whole group of churches growing in Discipleship, Service and Numbers. I use the word imagine because one of the things which inspired us was the words in the image above from Paul’s letter to the Ephesians, which comes from the new Diocesan mission strategy, looking to develop Committed to Growth towards 2021.

We would love you to join in with the next steps of this exciting vision by coming to an autumn dinner and launch evening in the Church Hall on Thursday 8th September at 7.30pm. Please email admin@venta-group.org if you would like to come, or sign up in church.

Thy Kingdom come prayer night

1 year ago

 

This Pentecost the Archbishops of Canterbury are calling the church in this nation, (not just the Church of England) to join together in prayer for the evangelisation of our nation, that people would come or return to a relationship with the living God through the Lord Jesus. They encourage us to pray for the renewal of the Holy Spirit in our midst, and the confidence to share our faith with those around us.

In the Venta group we will be doing a mixture of things in the week running up to Pentecost:

  1. At our services next Sunday, we will be distributing resources to help people pray as individuals for the week ahead, and beyond.
  2. Stoke, Caistor and Arminghall churches will be open 10-5 all week, so people can come in and sit and pray, with special material on display.
  3. There will be services of Morning Prayer at 9am at Arminghall Church on Monday 9th, at Stoke Church on Tuesday 10th, and at Caistor church on Wednesday 11th.
  4. There will be prayer walking at 7.30pm from Caistor church on the Monday, from Arminghall Church on the Tuesday, and from Stoke Church Hall on the Wednesday
  5. We will be praying together, and reflectively using prayer stations, at Stoke Church from 7-11pm on Friday 13th May.

We’d love to pray with you—come whenever, wherever you can! PS there will now be no PRAYER HOUSE 4th May, and this will resume as normal on Wednesday 1st June.
