The Shrewsbury Passion 2020
Meeting 25th June 2019 @ 7.30pm
At room SGH019 at University Centre, Guidhall, Frankwell Quay, Shrewsbury. SY3 8HQ
A proposal has been made that the Shrewsbury Passion should take place again next Good Friday.Drama will of course feature but the message from this year's event is much more about worship, prayer and an opportunity to share the Gospel.
It is also something that we all need to be involved in and this is not being set up in competition with any particular church or denomination.
We all have God given gifts - some will be to act, some to sew costumes, others to move stage blocks, but also more importantly those with the gift of prayer - and that was something we had little or no support with this year.
We also need an effective sound team much of the criticism was around people not be able to see or hear.
All are welcome to come along on the 25th June 2019 to have their say, to volunteer or simply to be better informed.

The Shropshire Churches Conference 2019 focuses on 'EVERYDAY FAITH? Seven Whole Days Not One In Seven'.
What did Jesus really mean when he called people to follow him?
And what might that look like in our own lives, in our churches, and in the wider communities we serve?

Lunch is available for £5. More info, and tickets, from www.trinitychurches.org
Shrewsbury Youth For Christ
The s-yfc team are committed to serving schools and helping young people in a variety of ways. We work alongside staff to provide a service that contributes to school life, whether through formal settings such as lessons, or informal meetings with young people. In everything we do our aim is to bless the community, and show how Jesus is still relevant and can impact young lives in a positive way.
At Shrewsbury Youth for Christ we are passionate about working together with local Christians to take good news relevantly to every young person in Shrewsbury. We aim to:
‘Work with local churches and create genuine partnership in reaching out to young people in Shewsbury' We want to build on our past history of good relationships with local churches and continue to build thriving and mutual relationships with these groups. As churches continue to support us in prayer and giving, we aim to support local churches in training, networking and facilitating communication.
We'd love you to get alongside us in prayer, giving and volunteering. Please get in touch through our website.
COMMUNITY & SERVICE
Shrewsbury Food Bank
Shrewsbury Food Bank, operates from Barnabas Community Church. It is run entirely by volunteers, provides parcels of food to those that find themselves in real times of hardship. This service is offered throughout Shrewsbury.
People are referred for help by a local Agency, Charity or Church when found to be in a genuine crisis. Shrewsbury Food Bank assists with food to help them through their crisis period. Those referred may be in debt, have lost their job, suffered ill-health, family breakdown, bereavement, delays in benefits or homelessness or a combination of many issues. Not surprisingly, in the current economic climate demands on the service are particularly high.
Shrewsbury Food Bank relies entirely on donations of food and money to provide this service as well as the team of volunteers that run it. It is supported by many of the churches in the town.
