Soul Fusion

A fortnightly Youth Worship Event.

What is this all about?

We want to create a space for Christian Young people (aimed at 14+ but we don't turn others away) to get together and worship God, grow as disciples, disciplers and leaders. We want to create a platform where they can shape what happens, be involved in developing it, have great fellowship and reach the potential that God has set inside of them.

We want all the 3000+ young people in Chepstow in this age group to know what an awesome thing it is to know Jesus as their saviour, to do that we need a start point. The Bible is full of small groups with God on their side who changed the world. Will you join us? It'll be a blast!

Contact Laurence Brackpool for further information:

  Soul Fusion 25


Lunch Club

Each Thursday a team of volunteers prepare and serve up to 40 elderly local people a 3-course home cooked meal at the Methodist Church Hall. Apart from the happy "clients" and job satisfaction, there is always plenty of chat and laughter in the kitchen during preparation, serving and clearing up!

If you would like to volunteer to help with the cooking or serving, please contact Sandy Dickson: 01291 629488

 

 

 

 

  The Besom

The Besom helps people make a difference. It provides a bridge between those who want to give time, money, things or skills and those who are in need. It ensures what is given is used effectively. Poverty, isolation, abuse, ill health, injustice, homelessness: we all see the sharp inequalities of life around us and the devastating impacts they have on people's lives. Many of us want to do something, to get involved but we don't always know how. The Besom exists to help you make a difference to the lives of others and to make it easy for you to do so.

The aim behind all Besoms is that everyone - whether you are three years old or over 80, whether working full-time or part-time, a student, a mum with toddlers, in between jobs or retired - can get involved. By giving your time, money, things or skills you can help those who are in real need and make a long term positive difference to their lives.

How does it work, and How could I be involved?
A core team of people is formed, from every church in Chepstow. This team acts as the central link between the people who need help, and those who can offer support. Connections are made with local service providers who can refer people to the scheme. A list is kept of pledges of time, things or skills and these are matched with needs as they arise.

Prayer is at the heart of Besom. There is no chasing around trying to meet every need, there is instead prayer and faith that God will provide. As God meets each need he is the one that is glorified.

The Bridge Church, Sunday 31st May, 7:00pm.

CAP Debt Centre

CAP (Christians Against Poverty) are a UK based charity which was set up 19 years ago to help people in financial difficulty to find their way out of debt. Local churches partner with CAP to provide a local CAP Debt Centre in their town or area and Churches Together in Chepstow & District are pleased to announce that our new Chepstow & District CAP Debt Centre is now open!

This is a free service, helping people out of debt and back to life.
