This monthly Bulletin is sent out to help all the churches be more aware of our shared activities, and to keep people informed of news and events.
Grace House has arrived!
Amazing Grace Spaces have got the keys for their new project, Grace House. It is a 6-bed house in Newport to support women. This is a huge step of faith. It is very difficult to find good quality suitable supported accommodation for women coming out of prison or rehab, or out of abusive relationships, or for those on the next step of recovery into the community. We already have a list of ladies who are ready for their next step and who are waiting to move in, so in the next 6 weeks the house needs to be completely renovated. Our aim is to provide a place that they can call home, providing them with meaningful activities to help them recover and be able to move on into independent living as valued members of the community.
So we need your help and prayers, please. Can you help us with labour or materials for the, renovation and refurbishing of the house and garden? Financial gifts are also much needed. Please contact [email protected] (Tel. 07703 334075) if you can help in any of these ways or would like more information. Also, a special invitation to ladies: come and pray at the house, 2 West Park Road, NP20 3EH, on Thursday 17th Oct., 6:30pm.
“For King and his Kingdom” combined church event – report
We had an amazing morning together with almost 900 people gathered from 14 churches. The Newport Centre was full. Kids’ church was action-packed. It was all such a beautiful snapshot of the uniqueness of the body of Christ coming together to worship Jesus. James Aladiran brought a powerful, practical word which is available on podcast and Facebook. People were ministered to and healed, with many making decisions to return to Christ. Thank you to all the teams who served the people so well and to Newport Centre for hosting this. It was also announced that we will be gathering again on Easter Sunday, 12th April 2020.
