Here’s some information from the leaders of a new initiative being run in our local area.
We are inviting you to join us in our launch of The Tone Valley Filling Station: A new informal way of expressing the Christian faith. The doors will open for a ‘dry run’ on Friday September 28th 2018 at 7.00pm to make sure all systems are in place and then with an official opening on Friday October 26th when the speaker will be Revd Richard Fothergill the founder and International Director of the Filling Station movement. Every evening opens at 7.00pm with great coffee supplied by Brazier roasters and delicious muffins from Topside Catering and finish around 8.45pm.
What is the Filling Station?
We are not seeking to solely attract those already thriving and plugged into churches – more those Christians who are de-churched or feeling spiritually dry and tired on the fringes – so if you know any do please pass the information on. We will really appreciate your support.
We would love to meet you at our meetings if your diary permits, if only to stand alongside you and lift up your arms for all you are doing in the ministry. It is our hope that the monthly ‘celebration’ meetings are a means to an end (spiritual refreshment, renewal and evangelism, building and strengthening friendships). We also find the meetings often help to strengthen the local Christian community and the huge blessing that God promises us from unity. We must emphasize that this is very much an addition to what’s on offer at our churches – it is not, and never will be, a new church. (Hence not running on a Sunday or within a church building.)
The hosting team is comprised of a group of people who attend various churches. Hence, we’re aiming to bring together people across the denominations for informal sung worship, Biblically based teaching and prayer ministry, as well as providing a fun & social evening. Tea, coffee and cake will also be served.
It would be wonderful if you could come and we will appreciate your prayers as well.
Do let us know how you sense we can be praying for the area from your perspective as well as how we might be able to support you in the future. We often find Church leaders find it a resourcing place to come for themselves as well as an additional ministry tool for them.
