Dear Visitor, welcome to your December issue of Rock News.
BRIDGFORD SUNDAYS: An another amazing month at The Hub. Israel Silgram shared about the "Kidz Klub" intiative the church are planning on getting involved in. One of Rushcliffe's councillors joined us for the Remembrance Day service bringing a wreath to lay in memory of those who made the ultimate sacrifice and gave thier lives for our country. The bathrooms have also had a makeover this month, they've been completely ripped out and updated. Make sure you check them out.
COTGRAVE SUNDAYS: Two fab mornings were had at Cotgrave this month with Roger and Kerrie both sharing messages. The church also heard about plans for the Christmas season. On Rememberance Sunday the congregation attended a Rememberance service at All Saints Church where there was also a parade before having dinner together.
WEDDING OF PAUL AND MARGARET: A small group of friends and family gathered to celebrate the wedding of Paul and Margaret Sharpe. It was a lovely afternoon with Kate marrying the couple and sharing a short message. Massive Congratulations Mr and Mrs Sharpe.
XCEL MEN'S CONFERENCE: 20 of our men travelled on our annual trip to Life Church in Bradford for an epic weekend of fun, getting to know each other better, curry and some world class teaching from speakers Steve Gambill and Earl McClellan. The theme this year was about what we are fighting for and making sure we have each others' backs. As men we are part of an army of men of God, growing in strength, stature & influence, angels are watching over us, God almighty is with us, the Holy Spirit in us, Jesus is interceding for us.
NG SERVICE: The six churches who are part of the NG Network met to have their second joint service of the year. It was amazing to see so many people worshiping together from churches across the city. Each church took a role in making the service happen and guest speaker Kristian Thorpe brought a challenging word. Kristian then stuck around to speak at the NG growing leaders lunch, sharing some of his wisdom with our leaders.
CTWB SERVICE: The Rock hosted the Churches Together West Bridgford celebration service this month. With a focus on youth, the St Luke's band lead worship, Lydia Robb interview a couple of lads about how the church can be relevant to their generation and Barney Hooper shared a short message. It was a great evening together.
