Bring a Tin Campaign
Our mission and community partner this year is the Lincoln Community Larder. We invite you to grab a tin from your kitchen cupboard, bring it to the family service, and then place it into the ('BAT BOX') at the back of church. We call it the Bring a Tin ('BAT') initiative.
The purpose of the Lincoln Community Larder is to provide basic food for people in crisis. They do this by issuing Larder Vouchers to a variety of agencies in the area who then refer people to them who are in need of assistance in the form of food. The larder provide 3 days’ worth of food for each person included on the voucher. Lincoln Larder give advice about the best tins required by them here.
('For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me.' Matthew 25.35)
Autumn @ Scampton
During the Autumn we are continuing with our 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 Autumn in whatever you do and wherever you go.
Revd. Sue Deacon (local minister)
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.
