Sunday July 10th 2022 – Parish Breakfast Church – I am the Light of the World

It’s Breakfast Church on Sunday! Please join us for food, fellowship and worship.  Please remember that we don’t livestream this service.

We are following a different series at Breakfast Church looking at the “I am…” sayings of Jesus.  This week it is “I am the Light of the World”

Remembering the verse in the book of John chapter 8 verses 12

This service is particularly geared towards those who don’t really get church or why we gather – if you have people in your life that don’t really understand why you do the church thing – why not bring them along?

Prayer and Praise

In the evening at 7pm we have our Prayer and Praise service at St Philip’s Church.  If you haven’t been to this service why not come along?  We sing, we pray, we spend some time quietly in God’s presence.  It would be good to see you there!

Sunday 3rd July – International Service – Welcome to Emma!

On Sunday we are continuing our Sermon Series – More than a song, Coming back to the heart of worship.

This week we look at Psalm 50 and ask the question – “Why does God need all this worship?”

We will be welcoming Emma Wilkinson to our Parish after her ordination on Saturday.  She will be preaching at the service and we will celebrate her arrival with lunch afterwards. Please stay to greet her and her family and friends.

Live stream for our service will be available via this link – https://linktr.ee/ParishofGHM

Ann Ashe has made an amazing banner as a gift to the Episcopal Church of Sudan from the Diocese of Leeds. It will be presented to Archbishop Ezekiel, when he comes to the Lambeth Conference in July.  We hope it will be displayed in All Saints’ Cathedral in Khartoum.

Sunday 26th June 2022 – All Age Service – Why should worship we God?

This week we are asking the question “Why should worship we God?”  We will be reading Psalm 145 as we continue in our new topic.

This is an All Age Service when we will all be together in church.  Hope to see you on Sunday morning at 10.30 St Paul’s Manningham

Please remember to continue praying for Emma as she sets up her new home in Bradford.  She will be ordained on Saturday 2nd July in Wakefield Cathedral.  Then on 3rd July she will begin her ministry with us here in our Parish.

Sunday 19th June 2022 | Parish Communion with Sunday School – New Series

This Sunday we start a new Sermon Series – More than a song, Coming back to the heart of worship – taken from the 1990s song.  The first lines of the song probably explain what the series is about best.

 

When the music fades
All is stripped away
And I simply come
Longing just to bring
Something that’s of worth
That will bless Your heart
I’ll bring You more than a song
For a song in itself
Is not what You have required
You search much deeper within
Through the ways things appear
You’re looking into my heart
I’m coming back to the heart of worship
And it’s all about You
It’s all about You, Jesus
I’m sorry, Lord, for the thing I’ve made it
When it’s all about You
It’s all about You, Jesus

 

Our Bible reading will be Psalm 51 – with a the sermon titled “What is worship?”

Last week we explained that we’ve got 2 new series on the go – Breakfast Church will now cover the “I am” sayings.  But ‘other’ Sundays will follow this new series on Worship.

Sunday 12th June 2022 | Parish Breakfast Church – I am the Bread of Life

Looking forward to seeing you all this Sunday, this week we will be having Breakfast Church at St Paul’s church with the subject ‘I am the Bread of Life’

Reading in the book of John chapter 6 verses 22 to the end.

This is the start of a new series.  We have decided to break Breakfast Church away from what we do on other Sundays for a while.  So each Breakfast Church for the next year or so will focus on one of the famous “I am…. “ sayings of Jesus. After “Bread of Life” this week we will move on to “Light of the World” – “Good Shepherd” “Resurrection and the Life” – “Way, Truth and Life”

In the evening at 7pm we have our Prayer and Praise service at St Philip’s Church.  If you haven’t been to this service why not come along?  We sing, we pray, we spend some time quietly in God’s presence.  Hope you see you there!

Fountain’s Church are delighted to be hosting ‘Riding Lights – My Place’ on Wednesday 25th May on behalf of Bradford Churches. There is no charge for the tickets but we will be asking people to donate if they are able (usual cost is £10 per ticket).

WHAT’S THE STORY OF MY PLACE?

Both entertaining and thought-provoking, My Place follows the stories of four children in care. An individual child, a pair of siblings and an unaccompanied child refugee. They have different backgrounds and journeys, brought to life through a range of colourful story-telling techniques, including song and spoken word. Each story highlights the need for all vulnerable children to have a safe, stable and loving home where they can thrive.

WHO ARE HOME FOR GOOD?

Home for Good is a charity that exists to find a home for every child who needs one. We hope to inspire and equip individuals and families to open their homes and hearts to children and teenagers through fostering, adoption and supported lodgings. We also resource churches to be a welcoming and supportive community for all families who care for vulnerable children and advocate on their behalf at all levels of government. Home for Good is thrilled to have this opportunity to join with Riding Lights in presenting My Place.
