Special times of prayer


IT’S GOOD TO TALK

Many Christians struggle with prayer; many Christians feel guilty about their own prayers. Yet prayer is an amazing privilege. In prayer we get to talk to the Creator of the Universe; we get to talk to God. Most important people in the world never talk to me or would not answer the phone if we called. The Prime Minister never talks to us, yet God does.

Prayer very simply is communication with God. In the words of an old B.T. advert, “it is good to talk.” We do not have to use clever language or old fashioned words; we just need to be real and be open to what God will say to us.

Within the church there are two special times of prayer.
We meet every week, on Sundays, at 8.45 or 9.30am for about 40 minutes, before Sunday worship.

We meet every second Monday at 7.30pm for about an hour.
These times are open to everyone, and any situation, personal or bigger, can be the focus for prayer.

Christian Circle Dancing
Sep 24 @ 1:45 pm – 4:00 pm

Music from many different countries


Dancing in a circle is an ancient tradition common to many cultures for marking special occasions, strengthening community and encouraging togetherness.

Modern circle dancing draws on the music from many different countries as well as religious and classical music. The dances can be fun, joyful, simple or meditative, and all are taught and walked through first.

Many people are finding that circle dancing is a peacefully uplifting experience leading to inner stillness. It is also an excellent way of keeping fit, exercising both mind and body with like-minded people.

Our Circle Dancing afternoons are held twice a month on Mondays from 1.45 to 4 pm
£4 including afternoon tea

CIA Youth Group
Sep 24 @ 7:30 pm – 9:00 pm

The ‘CIA youth group is an informal meeting open to teenagers aged 14+ (year 10 and above). We meet at The Cellar, St Mary’s Hawkshaw on a Monday at 7:30-9pm during term time.

The aim of the group is to provide a safe, relaxed, and fun environment in which we can chat comfortably and explore issues that are important to us, taking guidance from our Christian faith to help us along the way. You won’t find anything too heavy here – just a  chilled out place to talk about whatever’s on your mind, and ask any questions you want.

There is no fixed running order to the youth group – we get together, have a brew, eat pizza and cake, play on the pool table, air hockey, table tennis table, table football, play games in the church or football outside in the school playground. What we talk about is up to the guest speaker who comes and speaks to youth group for 20 mins at the end. What’s important to us is that young people feel empowered by God’s love.

The youth group is run by Danny our qualified church youth worker and team of DBS checked Volunteers.

For more info please contact Danny on dan@holcombebrook.org

We’d love to see you there!

Church Walk
 The church walking group meets on the fourth Thursday of each month, meeting at the end of Woodhey Road at 10.00. We take turns leading the walk of about 5 to 6 miles and walkers take their own packed lunch having a picnic on the way. It is usually in the immediate area but sometimes, particularly in the summer we go further afield by car.
