This weekend is of course a Bank Holiday weekend and is the start of half term. For those of you that are managing to get some time off over the weekend or the week, I hope you have some good time with friends and family.I passionately believe that all of the baptised are in full time ministry whether that is teaching, health care, being a parent, church leadership or whatever it is that God has called you to. To the teachers among us: Thank you so much for all you do in your ministry of teaching the young people in this country - enjoy a well deserved break this half term holiday!
As the weather gets warmer our attention turns towards the summer. New Wine Inspire is happening again in Thirsk from the 17th - 21st August. There will be fantastic children's and youth work, great worship and bible teaching. Lots of The Belfrey family are going and will be camping together. Why not join us? All of the details about how to book on are at the bottom of this message.
This summer our brilliant youth team are running Youth Fest again. Have a look at what they are getting up to, pray for them and if you are a youth - book on! If you are a parent or guardian encourage your young people to get involved in this great event.
Finally, this Sunday we are looking at the last part of Acts 2 together and Revd Jim Roberts and guest speaker Sarah Yardley will be teaching the Bible to us. Communion will be celebrated at 9am and at XI we are baptising a young lad who has recently invited Jesus into his life. It is so wonderful to be seeing so many young people have their lives changed by Jesus.
I look forward to seeing you in church on Sunday!
With love to all of you,
