On Sunday 14 July inclusive worship service known as ALL, Together, celebrated its 1st anniversary with a trip to the sea side. With songs, prayer and an action packed telling of Jesus on the beach when he encouraged his friends to "fish from the other side of the boat" (John 21) the congregation found itself encircled by paper chain 153 fine fat fish that literally wrapped itself right around the fellowship. This was a happy coincidence and a blessing that could never have been planned for.
ALL, Together, while still developing continues to bless and be blessed. There has been an Olympic Torch bearer, a baker at the harvest festival, a storm at sea and a picnic on the beach. We have been visited by Rev Roger Walton the district chair. All of our services have a time for activities and a sharing meal.
There is a wonderful mix of people of all abilities and it has become a favourite with some of the Northcliffe families and their friends. Each time we meet we make new friends and welcome back folk we are getting to know each time we gather. This is a circuit and Shipley Christians Together initiative and we welcome new people to help plan and help at the services. Whoever you are and whatever you can offer there is a place for you.
Our next service is a Harvest Celebration on Sunday 13 October 2013.
