Everyone who hears the words of Jesus and puts them into practice is like a wise man who built his house on the rock. (Matthew 7.24-25)

This event is all about the family of God gathering together in Thirsk, North Yorkshire, sharing and worshipping Jesus. There will be children’s, youth, and an adult programme and at times we will all gather everyone together for some fun. This will be reflected in the whole event as different generations will be represented alongside each other.

Open Mic


7pm Tuesday 19 September

Pack Horse Pub, Greenside

We would like to invite all churches in the Tyne Valley to join us at an ‘OPEN MIC WORSHIP EVENING’.

And we also invite churches to ask their worship leaders to come and play worship songs too. We are happy with a mix of modern and traditional music and would like an emphasis on modern worship music, perhaps a set of three songs, depending on uptake. In this way, Christians from the Tyne Valley can come together as a family and share in the joy of worship – not just with one another, but with those who will be drawn to the event from our surrounding areas.

If your worship leaders would also like to take part, please click here to let us know. We warmly welcome you to participate. Then we'll send you a Participant Form to be completed by 4th September  - to help us plan the evening in terms of what each worship leader is doing, how long their set will take and a copy of the words so we can get some print outs. We’ll then allocate times to each set of songs.

And please share this event with your members and with other churches and chapels in your area. The Pack Horse pub is in the centre of Greenside village with postcode NE40 4BS for Sat Nav. And if you have any questions, please click here to send an email.  Yours sincerely, Revd Tom Brazier

 247 PrayerOCTOBER 16-21 2017

Continuous prayer day and night


with the churches in the west of the Borough of Gateshead and other friends. 

  • Themed prayer stations around the church to engage imagination, reflection, and focus in our praying. 
  • Plenty of space for people to pray alone or simply sit quietly, and also for groups to meet in shared praise and intercession. 
  • Hospitality provided throughout.
  • ‘Reading Room’ well stocked with spiritual classics and inspirational prayers and pictures.
  • Groups are invited to book early to take responsibility for a whole night of prayer, or else to move their usual meeting to Holy Cross Church that week.

Each participating church is invited now to appoint a liaison person and to ask that person to contact Tom Jamieson email tomjamiesonryton@hotmail.com or Tel 0191 413 4592. 

Please plan a lead-in of advertising this among all church members and friends now, to save the date, offer prayer stations, and book nights of prayer, and then from 1st September for sign-up for hours of prayer daytime and evenings. 

 “And will not God grant justice to his chosen ones who cry to him day and night? Will he delay long in helping them? I tell you, he will quickly grant justice to them. And yet, when the Son of Man comes, will he find faith on earth?” - the words of Jesus, Luke 18.7,8                      [May 2017]
