Sunday Parking
A reminder that parking at GBC is very restricted. It would be helpful if you arrange to drop people off and then park your car elsewhere. We ask that you do NOT park in East Chadley Lane or Lancaster Way.

A limited number of permits are available for those who need to park at the church. Please contact the office if you need one.

Parking is available in the Community School car park on Park Lane from 10.00am to 1.00pm, as well as in the public car parks on Park Lane (opposite the school), on Post Street (by Cinta restaurant) and Queen Elizabeth School (by the Chinese Bridge). Further details can be found on our website.
Jesus People Revival presentation
God worked powerfully in transforming hippy types in the late 60s and early 70s, initially in the USA, but then in the UK and elsewhere, in what what most people call the Jesus People Movement. Andrew Whitman, GBC’s senior pastor from 1985-1996, was one of those, coming to faith in late August 1973 at a rock-musical. At 7.00pm on Sunday 10 July at the Crossways Christian Centre, 29a Ramsey Road, St Ives, Andrew will be giving a presentation that tells the story from half a century ago, together with lots of evocative images from back in the day. It will conclude with a brief time of Holy Spirit impartation, and drinks afterwards. All are welcome.
