Last Christmas St Paul’s hosted a community banquet – more than 100 folk from local communities attended. We had a community Christmas choir entertaining us and some magnificent food and fun together. Locals are still talking about it now! This year it’s going to be bigger and better. To help cover costs, we’re organising the St Paul’s PEAKS 4 POUNDS challenge.
This involves a trek up the three highest peaks in Yorkshire in one day – Pen-Y-Ghent, Whernside and Ingleborough – a total climb of more than 2,000 metres.
Those undertaking the trek will gather at a campsite, in the shadow of Pen-Y-Ghent on the evening of Friday, September 21. Where they’ll spend the night under canvas and hike the three peaks the following day.
Following another night camping after the trek, they will return after a hearty breakfast on Sunday, September 23.
If you want to join us, you’ll have to be fit. Available for the weekend, and willing to camp out for a couple of nights.
In return we can guarantee a lot of fun, some hard work and a lovely glowy feeling inside, when you’ve completed the challenge and raised lots of money for the community banquet.
If you’re interested, please give your name and contact details to Peter Boyd, or give the church office your name and contact details. Or email the church office now, by clicking here.
We’re going to arrange a get-together before the trek. So we can chat through the timetable, and make sure we’re all ready for the event.
Most importantly, if you are joining us for the Peaks 4 Pounds Challenge. Please do all you can to spread the word and raise sponsorship. It couldn’t be easier – we’ve set up a gofundme account. Just send this link to all your friends via email/facebook/twitter etc:
We’re also going to print some flyers you can hand out to your friends/family members. They are also available to download below. Letting them know about the challenge and how they can sponsor you. Alternatively, if you don’t want to take part in the trek, but would like to help by sponsoring the team. Please visit our gofundme page and pledge some money. – If you’d like to help spread the word, please feel free to forward the link to your friends on social media.
Every penny counts, so even if you sponsor the team just a few pounds, it will be gratefully received.

What are you doing on the evening of Sunday May 20th?
Why? You may well ask.
Well it is Penetcost Sunday. So is there going to be a church service at St Paul’s then?
Actually no there isn’t. In fact there will not be an evening services at the majority of the churches in Worcester, or the sounding towns and villages. So now your probably thinking, “Why ever not?” Well that’s because, we are ALL coming together. To gather at Worcester Cathedral at 6:30pm, for an evening of pray for the City of Worcester. Churches from all over Worcester the surrounding villages are all meeting up as part of the Global prayer initiative, Thy Kingdom Come.
Below is a promotional video for your enjoyment.
There are several planning meetings in the coming weeks. We ask that you pray for the team, that are from a number of the churches in Worcester. As they come together to pray and organise this great event at Worcester Cathedral, and of course make sure you are there on May 20th at 6:30pm.
On Sunday we heard a little more about an exciting new youth project, that we are heading up in the city. We are working with a few other city centre churches, to launch Lightbox- a drop-in youth café. This is for all young people in our city, schools and churches. Our heart behind this is really to connect with young people in our community. To have a space to build positive, long-term relationships with them. Where we can practically share God’s love for them, in a really natural authentic way. We want Lightbox to be a bridge between young people in the city. With the local church- breaking down those barriers and eventually, linking these young people into some of the stuff we do here at church. Then into a relationship with Jesus. It’s really exciting stuff and only 5 weeks, until we open our doors. So we would love you to get behind this and help us spread the word…
If you’re on social media do like, follow and share our information, until people are sick of hearing about this! Grab a handful of flyers form the back of church. Give them to young people and parents you know. And equally as important, pray!
This Sunday we have our first café style evening 6:30-8pm. We hope this will be a really helpful setting, for those that have questions about life or are exploring faith to come and chat. In our busy lives we don’t often make the space for these types of conversation. So do be encouraged to come along, if you have just started a journey with God and want to know more, or if you can, invite someone along who may want to talk about and explore life and faith further.
Yesterday evening we had our first ‘Citycare Hub’ meeting, bringing together representatives from the 13 Citycare projects, we have going on, 13 projects! – That in itself is incredible! It was wonderful to hear stories of successes, breakthrough in people’s lives and God’s transforming power at work. We were reminded that the most important part of producing good fruit, is the seed and the preparation of the ground it is planted in. We are so blessed to have such faithful and passionate volunteers. Who continually sow seeds of love, faith and the Gospel. Thank you for all that you do and give- it is so important and significant in producing the lasting fruit we long to see. For more information on all that goes on in Citycare and how you can get involved do chat to Dot Burnett, Lorna Nicholls, or check out or city care webpage here.
