Holiday time…

As I mentioned on Sunday, the Smith family is making it’s great adventure down south for a week and a bit on Saturday.  We’ll miss you while we’re away and hope you enjoy what Ralph and Bob Cartledge have to say over the next two Sundays.

While we’re away, though, please please don’t forget Back to Church Sunday!  Please remember to think and pray about who you’re going to invite on September 27 and then bring back your pledge cards so we get an idea of how many visitors we’re going to have.

And please be praying for the day itself.  There’s a lot to plan and not a lot of timne to do it in.  Be thinking and praying about what we do as a church: are we as welcoming as we’d like to be?  What do we do in our services that will help people feel welcome and encounter God?  What might we need to change or do differently?

I’m open to any ideas: drop a note through my door, send me an e-mail, leave a comment on this blog (and remember you can respond to any of the posts on this blog) or bend my ear when we get back.  I can’t promise we’ll do everything, but I hope together we can make those who are coming to church on that day to feel welcome and comfortable – welcome and comfortable enough to join us again and again.

And we’ll see you when we get back!

Hi Stephen, I’ve just started training as a Baptist Student Minister at Serpentine Road Church in Wallasey and have just started studying an MA at Northern!

I’ve added a link to your Blog from mine, I hope you don’t mind?!

Nice to see another Student Minister on the Blogosphere!
