NEWS FROM LONGHILL FOR FEBRUARY 2017
Greetings everyone. The news for this month is found in the prayer requests below. I would value your ongoing prayers for these items as prayer changes things!
1. A kind friend is giving us their digital piano however we have no one to play it and need other musicians too. Pray for God to provide musicians
2. Pray for our monthly Messy Church for families. The next two are on Feb. 10th and March 17th. Pray for new families to join us and for the Messy Church leadership team.
3. Pray as we plan for our main Easter outreach service which will be called 'The Great Eggscape'. It will be followed by a resurrection party.
4. We don't want Hull City of Culture 2017 to pass us by on Longhill so we are proposing to organize several activities for July including a Songs of Praise for Longhill on July 19th and 'Don't Miss the Boat' when we hope to build a boat outside the Centre on the same day as our Summer Fayre - July 22nd. Our theme is 'Rivers of Life' as the roads on Longhill are all named after rivers. We want to decorate the Centre inside and out with fish and other displays. The groups using the Centre are full of good ideas and are excited at the prospect.
5. Now we have heating in the Hall we have a couple of new bookings but need more to increase our income in order to pay our utility bills.
6. Our 'Start' course will finish in mid February. We are planning to do a Lent Course this year.
7. Pray for the following event at our Welcome Centre:
