Here's what's on at Scampton Church, and in the local area...
Summer @ Scampton
Through the summer months at Scampton church we will be running two series of services.
Firstly our popular 10.15 family service will be looking at the story of Joseph and how God had a plan for him. God wants us to be part of his plans too. His plan is for us to follow his son Jesus and become more like him, and God can use us in his plans even when things aren’t perfect.
Secondly we are starting a new evening service which is informal and contemporary in style. As you no doubt know our main aim at Scampton Church is to make Jesus known in a modern, relevant and unstuffy way, and that's the starting point for this service. It includes a chance to have a chat, learn new songs, a space to pray, a film clip, and drinks and cake as the evening unfolds. It's for anyone and any age. It will also be easy going and fun. We want our church to grow and would love your views. So if you are tied up with Sunday sport or a day out with the family and couldn't make the morning service why not give this a try. If you would like to request a favourite song for this service then please let us know – and if you would be able to say a few words on the evening as to why it means something to you then so much the better. If not, well that's OK too.
May the Lord bless you this summer in whatever you do and wherever you go.
Revd. Sue Deacon (local minister)
The Revd. Dr. Sebastian Mattapally has been appointed to the post of Rector of the Springline group of parishes. He will be licensed at Scampton Church on Thursday 27th July. The service starts at 7.30pm and will be presided over by the Bishop of Lincoln, the Right Rev'd Christopher Lowson.
Sebastian and his wife Alida are really excited about coming to Lincolnshire.
Sebastian said, "We look forward to joining the Diocese of Lincoln, and to serving God and his people in the Springline Group. God has been so faithful and so provident. His loving kindness has accompanied us all the way through. Having worked in various climes and countries and with various peoples and languages, my wife and I are eager to share our lives, our stories and our faith with you all. This is not something we ever imagined, even in our wildest dreams! But the Lord is always full of surprises for those who love him! (Romans 8.28). May He surprise us mightily in the Springline group of parishes!
WEEKLY BIBLE STUDY
Within the Springline Parish we have a weekly bible chat in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere where there is no such thing as a silly question! Feel safe to ask whatever you like and we will do our best to answer from our heart.
WEEKLY PRAYER MEETING
A small group of us meets each week to pray for personal, local, national and world issues. If you need prayer, or if you would like to join us in praying for others, either in person or virtually via a 'prayer net', then please contact Sue.
