Grace Fellowship, Little Stukeley
During July there will be no repeat broadcasts in the afternoon at Grace Fellowship of the GBC Sunday morning service.
In August it is planned to broadcast the morning service at Grace Fellowship at the same time (10.30am) as that on YouTube, and similarly for Songs of Praise. Drinks will be available following the service. 
This will give opportunity to meet with others and watch the service "live".
Further details about the arrangements will follow in due course.
Friday evening at 7.00pm at St Anne's School 
FoodBank Needs
We have a Tesco Summer Collection from Thursday 15 July to Saturday 17 July and normally two local companies would be actively involved, but due to COVID, and that all their staff are working from home or are still furloughed until the end of September, they are unable to help this summer.
If you can help and want to be involved would you please contact, by phone or email, Phil Jones (phil.jones@gbcfoodbank.org.uk or 07850 506968)  or Joe George (joe.george@gbcfoodbank.org.uk or 01480 277239)
The Tesco Collection will be 9.00am to 5.00pm each day, and any support you can offer would be appreciated. We will be providing masks, gloves and sanitiser for  your safety.

We look forward to seeing you all there and being "Together"
Our “Room to Reflect” is open on Fridays between 9.00am and 1.00pm.
This week we have changed the theme for the summer. It is “Yield” based on the P.R.A.Y. acronym in the book ‘How to Pray’ by Pete Greig. 
1 Kings 19:10-13 Elijah waited patiently for the presence of God. Have you made space for God recently? Are you still expecting him to show up as he has in the past? Come and wait patiently and attentively for God’s presence and voice in the reflection room. This is a recent prayer from Lectio 365:
God, I confess that I am a creature of habit and I want You to speak and move in predictable ways. I surrender my attachment to what is familiar. I am hungry for an encounter with you. I yield my expectations and wait patiently for your presence – however you want to meet with me.
Amen
You can book to come at other times if you cannot make it on Fridays – please contact the church office.
Birthdays coming up in the next few weeks are as follows (addresses in Blue Pages):

If you would like the church to celebrate your birthday, please email birthdays@godmanchesterbaptist.org with your birthday and address (if it isn’t in the Blue Pages).
