Gleneagles Church News For The Week Commencing 15th June 2019

Did you know that individual prayer is available after each Sunday morning service?
Just make your way to the seating area in the foyer where a member of the Prayer Team will be waiting to pray with you.

Additionally, Churches Together Prayer Meetings at Nations at 8pm each Monday evening are open to everyone.


Street meals – help needed

Would you like to join some volunteers preparing and/or serving food and drinks to the homeless in town?
Street Meals are a group of volunteers who bring food for the homeless twice a week.  At the moment, and because of the increase in numbers, we need a few more people to help. You wouldn’t have to commit to every week and you don’t have to prepare the meals or drinks every time. It is a fantastic way of serving those who need it the most and to show them God’s love through it (and be blessed by them as well), so please speak to Marìa, Mark, Arleen, John or June if you would like to come and have a look at what we do or would like to know more details.

Sunday 30 June

Gleneagles Youth Walk 

If you are aged from Y6 to Y13, we would like we would like to invite you to our summer youth walk on Sunday 30 June.

We plan to leave at 9 am (from 56 Hatton Park Road) and travel to ‘The Roaches’ near Leek, a rocky ridge, part of the Peak District.  From there, we will walk/scramble to the top, have a picnic lunch and walk.  Inspired by the landscape, somewhere along the way, we will also do an activity or two to reflect of how amazing God’s creation is.
The return (back to 56 Hatton Park Road) will be dependent on traffic etc, but we anticipate it will be early to mid evening (on the same day!).

If you want to come along, please let me or Mike Odendaal know by 9 June so we can arrange transport. Click here for a copy of the permission form that we will need to have completed on or ideally before the day.

The young people will need:

  • Suitable walking footwear
  • Packed lunch and drink
  • Suitable clothes for the weather (including hat and waterproof)
  • Sunscreen and any medication they would normally need during the day
  • A sense of adventure (and humour if we get lost!)

There will be several youth leaders going along too.
