“Streams in the desert” – SSCB refresh evenings

“See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the wilderness and streams in the desert.” (Isaiah 43:19)

Sometimes, especially over the past year or so, we might have felt we’ve been “running on empty”, spiritually dry, or just tired.  If that’s been your experience, how do you like the idea of meeting together to allow God to refresh and encourage us and for us to encourage and build up each other?
We’re planning to start quarterly “refreshing and soaking” sessions in the sanctuary. The first is planned for the evening of Friday November 5th. We’ll begin with a time of worship and a short, guided reflection to help us settle in and focus on God. We’ll then spend time in small groups, sitting quietly, listening to what Holy Spirit may be saying to encourage us and praying for each other. We may feel a little out of our comfort zones, but the aim is for the evening to be relaxed, so numbers will be small – a maximum of 15 – and there’ll be a break for beverages and cake.
If you’re reading this and thinking that you have to be “super-spiritual” to take part, I’d like to assure you this is not the case! If you want to find out more, just speak to Pauline Dalrymple or Jacqueline Young, or email the church office.

‘Spirit Soaking’ – Streams in the Desert – SSCB refresh evening will take place at 19:00 on Friday, 5 November at SSCB
