MAKE HOPE VISIBLE

Carolyn spoke to us last Sunday about Eternal Wall of Answered Prayer.
This will be a Christian, national landmark, a stunning piece of architecture designed to provoke a conversation about prayer.
The site for building is Coleshill, near Birmingham, and at over 50m high it is estimated that the wall will be visible from 6 miles away.
It will be made of 1 million bricks, each one containing a personal testimony of how God has answered prayer or how individuals have found hope in the silence or the waiting.
It will be the largest database of hope stories in the world.
Building is due to start in Spring 2022, with completion in 2023.
For more information (including details about submitting a testimony or making a donation), see their 
website

CHRISTMAS SHOE BOXES
 
We are preparing Christmas shoeboxes for The Amen Trust, which provides gifts for all the family (parents and grandparents as well as children) in each box.
Amen Trust currently send all completed Christmas shoeboxes to Romania, to be distributed by local Christians to gypsy and other needy families. Click on this link to read/ hear more and see the impact of these gifts.

If you would like to fill a shoebox (no boot boxes please), then pick up a leaflet from the Church Office or download one from the above link. This will give detailed information about how to prepare your box as well as what to include and what to avoid! Please bring all completed shoeboxes to the church office by next Friday (12 November), along with £2 per box for postage (if you are able) and ensure that each box has a filled in leaflet attached. Please only bring cash (no cheques) as we will aim to send one amount to Amen ministries to cover the cost of postage for all boxes from GBC. In this time of global need, let’s get packing and bless some families in Romania this Christmas!
There is a two bedroomed house to let in Godmanchester from the middle of November. If you are interested please contact the church office on 01480 458565
While we hold some of our activities at GBC and Grace Fellowship, we need to continue to follow sensible guidelines about keeping ourselves and others safe. This includes asking people:
  • not to attend if they have Covid symptoms,
  • to sanitise hands on arrival and during their time on the premises, and
  • to wear a mask when moving around the building (can be removed when seated)  
We will also have to limit numbers for capacity reasons and have implemented a booking system for our Sunday morning worship service. To book for this coming Sunday, use the link above. It may be that demand exceeds available spaces so those trying to book later may receive a 'full' response. We will try to manage this by asking people who are present one week to not book in for the following week until the Friday - to give others a chance to book spaces - BUT IF THERE ARE SPACES AVAILABLE ON FRIDAY, GO AHEAD AND BOOK.
For those unable to use online booking, please phone the church office on 01480 458565 from Tuesday morning and we can book your space for you.
The Churches Together AGM will take place at 7.30pm on Wednesday 17 November at the Methodist Church, Huntingdon, and it will include a tour of the new extension at the Methodist Church. All are welcome.
The Worship Area and Resources Room remain out of bounds while the building work continues. Please do not access GBC through the side entrance opposite Brian Searle's garage. In the event of an emergency and a need to vacate the building, exit through the fire door in the kitchen and make your way to the front car park - avoid using the fire door in the Worship Area foyer.
