Alpha Launch Supper

Everyone has questions. We believe that everyone should have the chance to explore the Christian faith, ask questions and share their point of view.

As we launch Alpha for Reach Derby this year we invite you to join in the conversation. We’ll take a look at what Alpha is, what it can offer and who the team are.

If you have questions about life, faith and God why not join us on this evening.

We look forward to meeting you.

Synergy Camp
May
24
to 27 May

Synergy Camp

  • Lenchwood Christian Centre (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

Our first family together camp is an opportunity to set aside holiday time for God, allowing him to inspire, teach and encourage us forward in adventure and mission, both as linked individuals of all ages, and across our family of churches. We hope you are able to join us and to pray in faith for this special time.

Adult Programme

  • Debra Green is a special friend and well-known to Synergy Leaders profoundly impacted by her teaching, and particularly by her ability to hear God and get the job done. A leader in Ivy Church Manchester and the Founder and and National Director of Redeeming our Communities (ROC), her influence nationally spreads well outside conventional Christian boundaries.

  • David Oliver is a “workplace prophet” and author of ‘Work Prison or Place of Destiny?’ and ‘Find your voice: developing the prophetic’. He’s part of the Salt & Light UK Team and the Sphere team for our friends in Basingstoke.

Youth

Christian Youth across the country are on the move, seemingly with life and influence as never before, and much individually encouraged by larger gatherings that embrace their culture in styles
of worship, and teaching that they find relevant and can receive.

Please pray, as we invest this future generation, that each individual will meet God personally in relationship, power, healing and anointing. Sky and Charlotte Chiweshe are heading up the team, bringing experience and testimony from leading in the team at New Wine’s Club One. Please pray for their continued anointing to this work and blessing as they gather their team.

Our Children

Jesus said, “Let the children come to me”. Blessing our children with an event like this is a unique opportunity to meet with Jesus alongside many others – no-one is too young (or indeed too old)
to do this. We want to show them Jesus’ Love, His Kingdom and His Gifts, and to encourage them to grow in relationship and love for Him.

We hope and pray they will thoroughly enjoy their time with us, looking forward to meeting them, and blessing them beyond imagination. Pray for us as we prepare and gather the team.

Loads to do!

Starting with our welcome and Friday night style Brazilian barbecue and embedded right through the programme, we want to prioritise relationship
and fun as a family. Thus we shall allow plenty of time to socialise and play and intend a good programme of sporting and artistic opportunities.

We shall also be seeking volunteers to help make every aspect of the camp work. Please prayerfully consider if you can offer time.
