We will still be meeting at the Crowne Plaza, every other Wednesday at 8pm (7:45 to get first choice of cake!). We're calling it Big Wednesday, and the after Easter dates will be here soon! You can expect the same vibe as our Vision and Values evenings, with an informal atmosphere and great (free) refreshments and cake. Until Easter John and Anna will be talking about Jesus.
The dates for Big Wednesdays have been:
16th April (NEXT WEEK)!
We launched our Small Groups in March, which are taking place on the weeks we aren't meeting at the Plaza, on either Wednesday or Thursday. There are three groups currently meeting, in Hoole, Blacon and Ellesmere Port. There is a new 'groups' page on our site, where you can find out about each group and sign up online to any of them. Small Groups are the best way to connect with others, and are at the heart of what we do at Vineyard 53.
The weeks for Small Groups have been:
Week beginning 10th March
Week beginning 24th March
Week beginning 7th April
New after Easter dates will be up soon as well!
Love in Action
On Saturday 1st of March a group from Vineyard 53 went into Ellesmere Port high street, armed with hot chocolate and a smile. The plan was simply to give away the hot chocolate, stop for a chat with anybody willing, and generally try to brighten up shoppers' days. All the guys had a fantastic time, served over 130 cups of hot chocolate, and had some great conversations.
This was the first of a number of things we'll be doing to share Jesus' love with people in a practical way. We're calling it Love in Action. We've one coming up on the 18th April too!
There is a new Vineyard Kids page up on the Vineyard 53 website. Check it out, and do get in touch if you have kids aged between 3 and 10 and would like for them to come.
