ENOUGH March 23rd 2018

Community Church Chadwell, hosted members from all the nine Relational Mission Churches in our cluster. We gave thanksgiving for our God’s provision, heard testimonies of what God is doing, Took part in a live link which was beamed to many countries.

Mike Betts spoke on Acts 4 His message was that we are often under attack. What do we do about this? We go to our friends and PRAY. This is our first response. Everyone praying corporately. The prayers of many. Prayer moves things. God says present your requests to me. An answer will be given. A powerful message to step up our prayer, for only then can the church rise above the problems of this world.

Brentwood Gospel Festival August 2017

Festival stageA sunny day brought several hundred people out to Brentwood Centre for its first ever Festival of Gospel music. Groups from many local churches and organisations performed as the crowd ate their picnics and ice creams.

Festival field

Slogan was “Don’t give up on God ’cause He won’t give up on you”

Technically the sound was good and the very large screen enabled everyone a good view. Already plans are in place to make 2018 bigger.

Carols in Shenfield

On Saturday, December 17th, Hope Community Church, in conjunction with Shenfield Churches Together, sang carols to shoppers in Shenfield Broadway. This joint venture showed how we are part of the Christian community and is a strong witness to those who don’t relate Christmas with the birth of Jesus our Saviour.

Hope Community Church, in conjunction with Shenfield Churches Together, ran a marquee at the Shenfield Christmas Fair on Sunday 4th December.

There were free games, such as ‘feed the donkey’ for the children and ‘goodie’ bags were given to over 500 children.

Our presence was very popular with queues of youngsters for most of the 4-hour event.

On Sunday 2nd October, Mike Bollinger from Lowestoft RM Church spoke about Prophecy. He was accompanied by Justin.  After the morning session, we had lunch together as a family and were then joined by folk from our local RM cluster churches – Upminster, Chafford, Southend, Basildon.

Mike and Justin then ran a teaching group where we drew lots to mix us into groups who hadn’t met before and discussed various prophetical issues. We all felt encouraged and came away feeling we wanted more of this.

On Sunday, October 16th we shared a family breakfast with opportunity to share with our friends before the time of worship. This was led by Hannah with the young ones in the centre and chairs arranged in a circle around. This gave a feeling of intimacy with the young ones.
