Come and join us as we gather around the manger and worship this Christmas morning. Christmas begins with Christ. Without Him there’s not much left.
May you be blessed with a fresh knowledge of God’s love for you this Christmas.
The final Sunday Service of Golden Valley Church at Innsworth Community Hall took place this morning. The church met together for a time of great celebratory worship and praise.
Meetings have been held in the Innsworth venue for the past two and a half years, and we are grateful for the time we have been able to spend there. However, it is now time to move on to the chapel – renamed ‘the Firehouse’ – in Coney Hill, Gloucester.
Other activities of the church will continue to take place in the Churchdown / Innsworth area.
On Good Friday we commemorate the death of Jesus Christ who was crucified on behalf of humanity. Why us it ‘good’? The horrors of crucifixion cannot be called ‘good’. The murder of an innocent man by jealous religious leaders conspiring against Him can’t be called ‘good’. The rejection of One who healed the sick and blessed the poor can’t be described as ‘good’. The mourning of His family and friends can’t be called ‘good’.
Yet it is ‘Good Friday’. It is a memorial of the day when one sinless man – the Son of God, Jesus Christ – was put to death on behalf of the remainder of mankind who had no eternal hope because every one had sinned and missed the mark of God’s glory. God Himself, both just and loving, became a man and received the penalty of sin in Himself as He was crucified on the cross. Now, anyone – however far they have fallen in life – can call on Him because He has paid for their failures Himself, and receive forgiveness and eternal life. That is GOOD! This is the GOOD NEWS of Jesus Christ. He has loved us to the very end! Why not step into it for yourself this Easter?
Our Good Friday Service is at 10:00am,
in the Firehouse Chapel, Newton Avenue, Coney Hill, Gloucester, GL4 4NS
As we have now arrived at the holiday period, there will be changes to our Sunday services over the next couple of weeks.
Due to the number of people away at one time, next Sunday 31st July the meeting will take place in the small room at Innsworth Community Hall, and there will be no separate ‘Gladiators’ session for the children.
The following Sunday, 7th August, will be a day out at The Forest of Dean, so there will be no meeting at all at Innsworth.
We wish everyone a blessed and happy holiday season.
We are very pleased to be welcoming Rev. Bill O’Leary, pastor of Tewkesbury Baptist Church, to preach this coming Sunday.
He has been a good friend and colleague of the leaders of Golden Valley Church for many years, and it is exciting that he will be sharing with us again.
Come along and hear for yourself! Worship will be awesome, and the Presence of God very real.
The service is at 10:30am, at Innsworth Community Hall. Coffee will be served throughout.
There will also be a ‘soaking prayer’ session in the afternoon from 2:30 until 3:30.
