Harvest Festival: Sunday 27th September at 10am

This years harvest charity is: Toilet twinning

This year, the Ministry Team have opted to support a new charity, which is just 5 years old. But it does enable our raised funds to build toilets or latrines for those in the developing countries. These are paramount to people living hygienic lives and with enough money we could either fund a block of toilets for a school, or a community/village toilet. The charity then send us a framed picture of our building, to be displayed in our church toilets! It’s innovative, it’s fun but more importantly, it adds health and basic hygiene to peoples’ lives – something that we all take for granted.

Please support our 2015 Harvest Charity!

Ordinands at Teesport

The Ordinands from Cranmer Hall, Revd Dominic Black and tutor Revd Jennifer Croft spent a day at Teesport visiting the Chaplaincy work of the Mission to Seafarers.  We enjoyed a trip on the Harbour Master’s boat through the port (which is much bigger than you anticipate).

 

 

 

Cranmer Hall Ordinands in the Parish

From the 7th June, for two weeks, we are hosting ten Ordinands (trainee Vicars!) from Cranmer Hall, Durham. They are on placements at Easter Side, Eston & Normanby, Linthorpe, North Ormesby and South Bank. It has been a delight to have these talented people working amongst our parishes in Middlesbrough.

New Initiatives for St Cuthbert’s

A Prayer Chain & Prayer Cards

As a group we pray for the Glory of God, our church, the congregation and the land. We thank God for all the good things in our lives and ask Him to comfort the people we know who are anxious or fearful. To give healing, strength and endurance to the sick, as we are told in Luke11.9 Ask and it will be given you.

Praying as a group is powerful as told to us in Matthew 18 19&20 If two or three people come together in my name I am there with them. The prayer chain is a group of ladies from St Cuthbert’s praying for a need. It is always confidential and kept within the prayer group.

The prayer cards will be place in the pews. These are for anyone who needs prayers for anything that troubles them. The cards can be written anonymously if wished, or a name and contact details can be left. The church contact numbers are also on the card. The prayer group exists to pray for you. As a group we exist to serve our Lord Jesus Christ and the people of St. Cuthbert’s.

God Bless Sally & Elizabeth

A note of thanks!

We had a marvellous church social on Thursday 21st May at the Ormesby Institute & Club.  A huge thank you to Audrey Robson who organised it, and the evening treated us to music, singing, bingo, a raffle and delicious pie and peas!  It was great to share in friendship and fellowship with one another and we eagerly await our next church social event.  On another great note – we managed to raise £600+ for the church so we are very grateful to everyone who came and supported it, and then took part in the evening’s entertainment.  Thank you everyone! 🙂  Revd Jen
