FoodBank - Tesco Summer Food Collection
Thursday 30 June to Saturday 2 July
We need help with this summer's collection at Tesco's in Sapley. If you can help on any days, please contact Phil Jones (Phil.Jones@GBCFoodbank.org.uk).
Due to major changes in working practises the companies who were going to help are no longer able to do so.
Thank you.
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.
