Bang-on & Jeff’s wedding

Bang-on & Jeff’s wedding was in Agape church, Cannelton Indiana. It was a very blessed day. Jeff’s family and the church have welcomed Bang-on with open arms and hearts. They are happy Jeff has found in Bang-on what he has been praying for in a wife and that Bang-on has found in Jeff what she had been asking God for in a husband.
Please continue to keep them in your prayers as there is still a long process for them to go through to get the final visas required for Bang-on to stay in America.

Monthly Newsletter

At last we have got here, our monthly newsletter has materialised with the great support of the Elders and group leaders. The communications team hope you find this new format both informative and relevant to the needs of todays Church congregation.
We appreciate one month is a long time and you cannot always submit that last minute event or notice. Please be assured these will be covered during intimations on a Sunday, via the website or the most valuable of all…word of mouth.
I would encourage you to visit our clean, easy to use and up to date web-site for all the latest notices and events.
Januarys newsletter will be closed for submissions on Monday 29th Decem-ber. So please consider anything you feel may be missing, not enough off or you would like to share. Send these to:

Would you like to help with Bethany Edinburgh Care Shelter?

Would you like to help with Bethany Edinburgh Care Shelter?

Bethany provides a warm, safe place to sleep and a hot meal for the homeless every night from November-April. We are one of around 80 churches that help by cooking and serving a meal on three separate nights. We also provide a driver for the Bethany minibus to shuttle the homeless  from the centre of Edinburgh to the church where they stay overnight. Last year between 30 and 45 people used this service each night. If you would like to join a team of 6 or 7 of us to cook, drive, or serve food please have a chat with Jeff Hodgson or Helen Palmer or sign up on the sheets in the hall. Other ways to help are by donation of specific food items or money and of course to pray for the homeless in our city.  Our nights for this year are Thursday 6th November, 4th December and 22nd January.
