Hello everyone,

I am writing early this week because I wanted to draw your attention to a Christian film being shown at the Savoy cinema this evening, although tickets are limited so you may be better off looking at the other days/times – see below. There are also details of everything else coming up this week, plans for Kevin’s final day with us on Sunday 9th July, and, surprisingly for the end of June, a notice about shoeboxes!

Before all of that can I thank everyone who helped on Wednesday evening to make the Churchwardens’ Admission Service and refreshments go so well.

This Christian film is described as follows: “In the 1970s, young Greg Laurie (Joel Courtney) is searching for all the right things in all the wrong places: until he meets Lonnie Frisbee (Jonathan Roumie), a charismatic hippie-street-preacher. Together with Pastor Chuck Smith (Kelsey Grammer), they open the doors of Smith’s languishing church to an unexpected revival of radical and newfound love, leading to what TIME Magazine dubbed a Jesus Revolution.”
You can see this at the Savoy Cinema, Corby either today (Friday 23rd) at 6pm – VERY LIMITED TICKETS AVAILABLE,
or Sunday 25th at 8.30pm, Monday 26th at 3pm or Tuesday 27th at 2pm – PLENTY OF TICKETS for these three showings.
It looks as if this will be a good film, and it is always good to support films like this being shown in cinemas as it will encourage Savoy, and other cinemas, to show more of them.

Don’t forget it is Men’s Breakfast at 9am tomorrow, Saturday 24th June. I’m sure there will be plenty of food for all and all men are most welcome.

There are three services on Sunday as follows:
9am at St Leonard’s, Rockingham – Holy Communion
10.30am at St Columba’s – Morning Worship with Energize groups. This service will also be available to watch on youtube by going to this link:
6pm at St Columba’s – Holy Communion. So there will be no Prayer Meeting this week, but do join us for Communion instead.

No Fellowship Groups again this week.

We have one service at St Columba’s next week: ALL AGE WORSHIP at 10.30am and the PRAYER MEETING also at St Columba’s at 6pm.

SUNDAY 9th JULY – Kevin’s last Sunday
We have a service of HOLY COMMUNION at St Columba’s at 10.30am, with ENERGIZE groups, followed by LUNCH in the CHURCH HALL. This will be a main meal, if you would like to help with this please speak with Miriam (or reply to this email). After Lunch Kevin, and anyone who wants to join him, will be going to St Leonard’s Rockingham for his final FAMILY SERVICE there at 3pm. Also please do think if you could say a few words at the Lunch to thank Kevin for all he has contributed to the life of our churches and to wish him well for his future ministry at Long Buckby, Watford, West Haddon and Winwick.

James asked if I could give an unseasonable mention for shoes boxes! He says that they sometimes spot suitable presents over the year and if people would like to spread their buying in this way it might help. Also If you don’t feel you can fill a whole box we can take whatever people have and put together full boxes nearer the time, perhaps at a shoe box get together when anyone interested could meet and assemble the boxes and pray over them. Watch this space for details of that and keep an eye out for suitable small toys, games, etc for including in shoeboxes.

Here is the latest Mini-SCANS from Steve, with the usual puzzles and funnies and an interesting questionnaire for parents on “How well do you know your children?”

God bless you all in this coming week,
