Intimations

Holiday Club
A big thank you to everyone who helped to make Holiday Club such a great success!

Crèche Volunteers Wanted - can you help?
We require 2 helpers each Sunday morning to staff the crèche for the under-3’s and would love a larger pool of volunteers.  If you are interested in helping please contact Anne Kinnear, crèche co-ordinator, for more details.

Holiday Tales: #GreenbankTravelLog
Last chance to stick your pictures, post cards and stories from your summer travels and to add them to our 2nd Greenbank Travel Log in the Hall after worship at coffee. Looking forward to hearing about your adventures!

Streaming of worship
The installation of the cameras and other equipment for broadcasting worship on the internet is nearly complete, although broadcasting will not begin until early 2020. Our fundraising target for the project is also nearly achieved, but if you would still like to make a donation this will be gratefully received. Thanks to everyone who has pledged to support this so far.

Community Bible Experience is back!
By popular demand, we are finishing off the New Testament

during weeks beginning 9, 16, 23, and 30 September! Everyone who took part during Lent is warmly invited to take part again, on the flexible basis of being able to choose a home group meeting on Monday-Thursday evenings at 7.30pm and Thursday afternoons at 2pm at the Church. Visit a different group if the same time doesn’t suit your diary each week. Let Chris Horne know if you’d like to take part and he’ll get you fixed up with the most convenient group for you.  New participants are welcome, but let us know soon as we need to source the special edition of the New Testament without chapter or verse divisions and in accessible language.

Greenbank Running Group
The Thursday evening running group is restarting after the summer break on Thursday 29th August at 7.30pm, meeting weekly outside the church. Anyone is welcome - we are a very informal and friendly group! We are going to rerun the couch to 5km programme for anyone who is an absolute beginner and fancies giving running a go. At the same time there will also be the option of a 5km run (at a speed where chatting is still possible) for anyone who has been running for a while. If you are a regular runner, it might be fun to enter a few organised 5 or 10km races together this year. We’d love to hear from you if this is of interest but you can’t make a Thursday evening. If you’d like to find out more about any of this or ask any questions please don’t hesitate to contact  Katie Bogie on 07557 676 231.
