Christ Church Walkley
We had three guest services over Easter with friends and neighbours coming along for our series “Why Bother with Jesus?” Following this a few of our guests have signed up for the uncover course which starts this week on the 4th May. Praise God for our friends who are interested in doing this course to learn more about Christ. Please pray that they will feel able to ask questions and please pray for the leaders of the course that they will answer questions with wisdom from the Lord.
Church Basics Training
Over the next few weeks we will be spending time together as a church family thinking through and learning about the basics of “church”. Over the next few Sundays we will be thinking about gathering together, baptism, prayer and the Lord’s Supper. Midweek we will be thinking about singing, God’s grace through His Word and prayer. Please pray for us that we grow in our understanding of how God is at work, by his grace when we gather. Please pray that we grow in our appreciation of how Sundays relate to worship, mission and discipleship the rest of the week.
Ladies Mid-Week Bible Study
Praise God that the women of CCW have asked for a mid-week day time Bible study to be set up. We will be running this for 6 weeks looking at the book of Titus. Praise God that 12 women have signed up. Please pray for the logistics of meeting in our office with a number of small children to care for. Please pray that this would be a great opportunity for the women of CCW to grow in their love of our Lord and grow in their love of one another.
Praise God that members of our church are involved in the organisation of the Festival. Please pray for our involvement in the festival that it will increase our profile in Walkley and that we will get to know more of our neighbours through it. Please pray that guests will attend our guest Sunday service and hear the gospel proclaimed.
