Street Church blog - a flavour of our each activities each week

Sunday 11th June

Mix a Sunny afternoon with music from Dick and Sue, good food, and a sense of God's presence and you get a relaxing, congenial vibe with a gentle buzz of conversation. Add to that Jennie's return after a long absence (looking so much better!) and it's certainly a great afternoon. Everyone was so pleased to see her back. 

Our thanks go to Grange Park and Silverstone for catering and Mount Pleasant for hosting Street Church.

There was plenty of activity around the clothes cupboard creating a need for men's T shirts ( there are now only two left) and socks and pants, which are always in demand. We also have a continuing need for good Christian literature and it was hard to find a Bible when requested today, although we do have Gideon Testaments.The recipient was adamant that he wanted a Bible.

Paul brought us the Thought for the Day, speaking of the necessity for reconciliation with God after “The fall” in The Garden of Eden and he explained how Jesus came to reconnect us with God.Hopefully some of the words spoken will challenge the listeners over the next week, please pray with us that hearts and lives will continue to be changed for the glory of God.

We look forward to Mount Pleasant catering next week.

Sunday 4th June

Many attended this afternoon despite the sunny weather outside. There was a good atmosphere and a lovely meal provided by Silverstone Church. In true Biblical style there was plenty left over for takeaways.

Nancy delivered her powerful thought for the day to an attentive group. She spoke of the importance of making a decision to ask Jesus to become our Saviour, leaving that challenge for our friends. We pray often in (our leader) Paul's words that they will "come in one way and leave another." May that prove true in many lives.

There was evidence today of our guests contributing to the work of Street Church and ministering to others which is great to see. Sometimes the Lord's presence is so evident that it is a great encouragement to us all.

The “cupboard” was well used and many left with new clothes and smiling faces.

One of our guests was unwell but the paramedics who attended her assessed that she did not require treatment and she is once more on the streets tonight. Please pray for S who desperately needs to know God's love, peace and protection in her chaotic life.

We look forward to seeing friends from Vineyard who will be catering next week. We are so blessed by all your contributions love and prayers. Thank you, and may God bless you real good (as Billy Graham used to say).

Sunday 28th May

There were possibly fewer friends at Street Church today, but it was a beautiful sunny Bank Holiday afternoon with many other activities in progress elsewhere, and understandably many preferred to stay outside. We are grateful to Park Avenue United Reformed Church for a lovely tea complimented by their cheerful presence.

The bottled water disappeared quite quickly and, although the cupboard was not officially open, there was a need to provide some emergency clothing which we were able to do, and for which the recipient was really grateful.

John gave his own testimony to an attentive audience. It was a really powerful presentation which led to friends taking Bibles and New Testaments (including Polish versions) in order to follow up what he had said. The good news is that we are running out of Christian books and literature and are really pleased to have to ask you for more!

Thank you for all that you do in whatever way. You may not realise how valuable your contribution is to the work of Street Church but God has put it on your heart for a reason. May He richly bless you in all that you do, the results of which we might never see this side of heaven.

Thank you especially for your prayers which are vital and more powerful than we often realise, Next week Silverstone will be catering for us and we look forward to seeing our friends in the catering team.

Sunday 21st May

Phew! That was a busy way to spend a Sunday afternoon, but what better way is there? Lovely sunny day which seems to generally mean lovely sunny dispositions.

There was a hiccup with the catering but everyone rallied round and someone who came to cut hair ended up happily working in the kitchen and two of our guests did some drying up too! Thank you to everyone who showed a real spirit of unity and pulled it all together! To be asked to help can be a real self esteem booster for our guests too.

One young man was very sad as his dog of fifteen years died on Friday and he was in a lot of pain with his back too. He readily accepted prayer and I pray that he will soon be feeling better.

Pampering was as popular as ever and thanks to a new foot spa, fan, reclining chair and towels etc. it was a little bit special today. My first person to use the foot spa was nearly engulfed in the bubbles but thankfully all was well after that! Trial and error! We had a full house of barbers/hairdressers and that makes such a difference. An apprentice barber came along too and was very confident! I hope that we see him again.

Abington Avenue URC will be catering for us next week. Thank you for your continued prayers and support, both of which are much appreciated. I close with a little poem that I wanted to share with you all. Have a blessed week.

 Oh I do love pampering at Streetchurch,
I admit that I love every minute!
I was on foot spa duty and all went well,
Except the amount of bubbly that someone put in it!

 

Lots of lovely haircuts, with all looking smart,
With barbers for the men and stylists for the girls,
Some much preferring a short back and sides,
And others choosing to keep their curls.

 

I don't know what it is about Streetchurch,
But I left with my spirits lifted high.
The cares of my world all forgotten,
Rich in blessings that money can't buy.
