Mark 4: 9 - Then Jesus said, “Whoever has ears to hear, let them hear.”
Do you glance rather than gaze?
Do you scroll rather than seek?
Do you visit rather than dwell?
Why not try Quiet Reflection?
During November our “ROOM TO REFLECT” will focus on “I am the Gate” John 10: 9
There is a two bedroomed house to let in Godmanchester. If you are interested please contact the church office on 01480 458565
There is a charity shop in Peterborough, linked to the Anglo-Indian Concern Charity, and profits are donated to Christian work in Africa and to Pastor David Shrimpton's work in Chennai, South India. Stuart Harwood-Clark is coming to Godmanchester tomorrow afternoon (19 November) to pick up donations for the shop from Rachel Thurley's house.  Please contact Rachel on 454736 if you have anything to donate.  Thanks. 
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 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.
