Carr Clough Church (C3)

Fantastic14068280_1819980094905679_4069053929688228798_n meeting at C3 yesterday!! 


The barbeque was great fun and we were visited by Chase (aka Tom Hegarty).

After the ‘barbie’ we went inside for a C3 service based on “Giving Jesus your burdens or troubles”, (Matthew 11:28-30), and putting them on the cross. One young girl (8) talked about her best place she likes to be is her bed room, and what she wanted to give to the cross is when people at school are not nice. We had around 20 adults, and 14 young adults’. Please pray for the families that come to C-3. 

Post from Rev. Lisa:

Just back from the second ‘C3’ Fresh Expressions event held in St Andrew’s this Summer – Community BBQ, then youth-type service. We managed to coax in a group of younger teens from the area and one said she’d only ever been in a church once before, at her mother’s wedding. Andy Smith led us in an exercise in which we drew things (burdens) that we would like to shed from our lives. She drew a packet of cigarettes and a bottle of vodka. Please pray.

Espresso Church

We are building Community that is Jesus centered, so come and help us discover what this means today and be part of our journey together. Lets see what following Jesus feels like at home, at work and in our whole life.

@ Espresso, we also want to be a “Community of Mission”, so please send in your stories and pictures of where God is at work in our community.

This time @ Espresso 

Kevin Flanagan is the founder and Director of St. Antony’s Centre for Church and Industry based in Trafford Park, Manchester. The Centre promotes Catholic Social Thinking and its practical application to the world of work. Are we in danger of losing the true purpose of human work? Is the way economic life is organised serving the Common Good and the dignity of people? So come and hear what Kevin has to say.
