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

Sunday 29th January 2017

It was warm and friendly inside and a good number of the Street Church family gathered for a lovely meal provided by New Life Church.

We were sad to hear that Ann is in hospital and prayed for her speedy recovery. Jennie has also had a bout of illness recently and I know that she would value your prayers in the many commitments of her busy and stressful ministry.

It was good to have D back with us after her hospital stay and to see her looking so much better.

As a result of his hospitalization, C now has accommodation at Oasis House, and we pray that it will be the catalyst for great blessing in his life. It looks as though we are keeping the health service busy at the moment!

As his "Thought for the day" J, one of the Street Church family, spoke of the importance and power of prayer. Everyone listened respectfully, and applauded when he had finished.

Thank you for all that you do to facilitate the work of Street Church, but especially for your prayers!

Despite the freezing temperatures outside, there was a warm welcome for the 60 or so members who joined us for a meal this afternoon.

We were able to satisfy many needs for warm clothing and it was encouraging to see those who formerly came because of their own needs return to become part of the team of helpers.This meant that, although there were fewer original team members, everything worked well because of help from those recently promoted from amongst the Street Church family.

A spontaneous "Thought for the Day" saw a volunteer from the floor bravely helping and gaining great applause from her Street Church colleagues.The topic involved a dialogue highlighting God's love for each of us regardless of what we have done and linking to John 3:16.

One member in particular identified with feeling unworthy please pray that all who listen may understand that God loves each one of them, and is able to help them.

On a weekly basis, we see how the continuing hold of drug and alcohol addiction are so destructive.However, we know that God is in the business of breaking anything which interferes with His plan for His children.

Our thanks go to Park Avenue Methodist church for catering today, and we look forward to the provision from Kingdom Life Church next week.

Several visitors commented on the calm peaceful environment this afternoon. This was enhanced by music from Dick and Sue, which always goes down well with our guests who obviously enjoy their ministry. This time Dick included a short Bible based talk which was well received. It is good to know that they will be coming more often in future.

The professionals were in the wardrobe department and there were many satisfied customers thanks to the donation of some great wet weather clothing, trainers, jeans and hoodies (always favourites!)

There have been some special toiletries too and we are always grateful for your generosity in giving in so many ways.

A lovely cardigan and some of the perfumed soaps were taken to D who is in the respiratory unit at NGH recovering from a chest infection. Please pray that suitable accommodation and care support will be in place soon so that she can be discharged safely.

Please pray too for Jennie and Paul who give so much to Street Church and must get exhausted sometimes.

Thanks must go to today's caterers, Vineyard, who provided a great spread, and we look forward to the provision from Park Avenue Methodist Church next week.

Thank you for being friends of Street Church, we couldn't manage without you!

Sunday 8th January 2017

Hello everyone. Today was ....busy! It was pampering day and we pamperers are much happier now that we are in the main hall. Not only are we more visible and therefore more accessible but we feel very much more part of everything. Despite only having one hairdresser and a barber everyone that wanted a hair cut, shave etc was served. We are so grateful to all those that come along to pamper or help in many other ways. Heidi painted nails and I washed feet. Lots of clothes were given out and Mt Zion did a great job catering! We did over run a little but well done everybody!

We began the meeting by praying for those known to us that have various and some quite serious needs, physical and mental health issues and in other areas. It always amazes me how upbeat so many of our friends are but of course the reverse also applies to others. When most folk had left we were entertained by the excellent acrobatic skills of one of our Polish friends and there are also some who are really good at playing the piano. They put me to shame!

Whatever is going on in my life I am always lifted by the company of good friends and the friends that we serve and those who are serving are among those good friends. I did go home and fall asleep but certainly not from boredom!

Your prayers are greatly valued alongside practical help. Next week the Vineyard team will be catering. Advance notice, the next pampering session will be on February 19th 2017.
