September Newsletter

 Jill writes for September

 

We are soon moving into a new season: in some ways, feels like Autumn already! But we are also moving into a new season of expansion as we anticipate and plan for a whole set of new activities and ventures with the new buildings coming into use. This verse from Isaiah encourages us to plan for growth and expansion, to reach out to our community.

 Enlarge the place of your tent, stretch your tent curtains wide,

 do not hold back; lengthen your cords, strengthen your stakes.
For you will spread out to the right and to the left; your descendants will dispossess nations and settle in their desolate cities. Isaiah 54~:2-3

 People will begin to notice us more (our buildings are more visible now) but we also aim to be more visible as ambassadors for Christ in the places where we live and work, drawing people to Him. We are encouraged to strengthen our stakes and there are opportunities after the Summer to reinvest in strengthening and building our community here by coming together to encourage and support each other and continue building. There is a new programmes of social events on Wednesdays at Together, a varied plan of discussion times at Life Group based on Proverbs and Romans 12: Be transformed by the renewing of your mind . There will also be a new housegroup starting on Thursdays which will include the Church Values Course, designed for those who have recently begun to come to Kings Church to find out about who we are and what we believe. All are welcome to come along to these or existing midweek house-groups or prayer meetings (see below).

 A recent prophetic word to the church encouraged us to take big strides forward, so let’s make the most of all opportunities to continue moving in God’s purposes for us here in Beverley.

September Prayer

Healing Streams . ~Some teaching on healing, followed by a time of healing ministry.  Whilst quiet, spiritual music is playing, we sit comfortably or lie down, relax and open up our heart and spirit to God’s love and soak in God’s presence. Followed by an opportunity for prayer /coffee.   Alternate Thursdays.  See Jill Walker

House of Prayer: The Bible says that we are a House of Prayer. God is wanting to do amazing things amongst us and through us and as we meet to worship and pray together and respond to what the Holy Spirit is doing, we will find His heart and come into His purposes more and more. Join us as part of our House of Prayer to worship and pray.

Please see Jill Walker for September dates of prayer groups.

 Monday afternoons 2.15 -3.30pm  Prophetic intercession prayer group. See Jill for details.

 Prayer Points

Pray for Steve Sleight as he begins his course in Wales prior to spending some time in overseas mission with World Horizons.

Ask God for His guidance and wisdom as we seek to move forward in a program of community building and outreach. Pray that we would know God’s heart and have compassion to help those around us.

Pray that God would continue to build His Church here at Kings Church – that we would establish His values, His vision and purposes for us and that He would put the right people in the right place for this next season. Pray for the leadership team and worship team as they continue to lead us into God’s presence during our worship times.

Pray as we continue to work on our new building extension.  We pray that the buildings will be a blessing to the church and our community.  Pray that we carry His presence wherever we go and fulfil His purposes for us in the communities where He has placed us.
