Shenfield Christmas Fair on Sunday 4th December

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.

October News

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.
