SUNDAY 22 MARCH │ 2015
Welcome to Christ Church
Endcliffe today, especially if
this is your first time with us.
During the service we hear God speak to us through the
Bible, think how what we learn applies to
everyday life, and encourage each other
through singing and prayer. You are welcome
to join in with as much as you want to.
At the end of the service we have a meal
together in the hall. Please do join us—
there’s always plenty to go round. Afterwards
in term time is the Training Field for students.
Children are an important part of our church family, and
if you have children with you today, then be assured that
we are used to noise(!). Part way through the service the
children aged 0-11 head out for their groups,
and crèches. For more information about
these please just ask someone.

Song lyrics appear on the screen. Paper copies are available

the front, group discussion and feedback, question
and answer time, and prayer.

desk for those with English as a foreign language.

PRAYERS
SONG
Here is the plan:
We hope these will still be valuable times as growth
groups so we will not mix people up. It will be best if
you come on the day you normally meet, though it’s
fine if you have to come on the other day and join a
different group.
Jo Yianni
Amazing Grace
CLOSING PRAYER
Please join us for a meal in the church hall.
Stand firm against sin (33-34)
 FAMILY TABLE TALK
Here is a question for parents and children to discuss over a
meal time one day…
How does knowing about Jesus’ resurrection help a
Christian who is having a hard time?
