In Other News March 2020

In Other News - our way of fitting in snippets of news from ChristCentral and other movements or organisations. You'll find news about events we think you'll be interested in but we can't fit in full details about in the main part of our monthly newsletter. Often you'll find reminders about upcoming events we've already given a bigger profile to in the past. 

Here below are some of March's In Other News updates:

  • Media - Friend or Foe - 13 June 2020 - Sheffield - Book now...
Churches are increasingly being approached by journalists for their views on local issues, particularly as we run more projects that help the most vulnerable in our communities. This training day will help you build good working relationships with the local press and give you tools to use to make the most of the opportunities this may provide in the future. Read more...

Estamos muy contentos de invitarlos a Impacto2020. Regístrate con tu líder de jóvenes/pastor y no te pierdas de lo que estamos preparando. Dios siempre nos habla y nos consiente en Impacto año tras año y este 2020 no será la excepción. Nuestro invitado especial será Jarrett (Trinity Central, Vancouver) y creemos que será un excelente tiempo. ¡Regístrate ya! (Edades 13 a 20 años)

Our churches in Mexico would love to invite you to pray for Impacto 2020. If you are in Mexico, they'd love any 13-20 year olds to join them! This year their guest speaker is Jarrett Vaughan from Trinity Central in Vancouver, Canada. This will be an excellent time for young people from across our churches in Mexico to gather together for worship, teaching and being friends enjoying God together! Please do pray for these young people as they gather to hear from Jarrett, that they would be encouraged and equipped to live for Jesus in their generation.
