This is a time for leaning into Jesus, and all that he is calling us to. He can lead you to thrive in the midst of trial. Join us and step into the following practices:
Personal Online Discipleship Squads!
Jesus leads us into life-giving relationships. A tool we use to help people find and grow these is PODS - small groups of people, who commit to regularly gather online to share life together and spur each other on in our faith.
We encourage you to be a part of a POD - if you need help connecting with one contact us at email@example.com
This is a time to pray!
One way we are doing this together, at a time when we can't gather physically as easily, is through our 24/7 prayer chain. Sign up for an hour slot, at a time convenient to you, and use the time to pray wherever you are. Follow the link www.24-7prayer.com/signup/d19233
We'll be sending out specific Croydon Vineyard guidance for prayer periodically, which will be linked to here. You can find also find a wealth of resources at www.24-7prayer.com
New Testament in 2020
As a church we have been reading through the New Testament in 2020!
The plan is simple - pursuing God's presence through the New Testament by reading 1 chapter every weekday (Monday to Friday), with the weekends free to catch up!
You can find out where we are currently up to and get notes to help your reading at https://nti1y.home.blog/
1000 Acts of Courage
Since February we have been encouraging each other to do "Acts of Courage".
An Act of Courage is taking a step, big or small, out of our comfort zones in order to be a blessing to those around us. Surely, with all that's happening in the world right now, it's only a time to push into this initiative more?
If you, or someone you know, does an act of courage please do let us know - we love to encourage each other by sharing the stories of the steps people are taking.
Caroline and Phil Greaves head up this initiative for the church, you can contact them directly at firstname.lastname@example.org
Loving Croydon in times of need... We are sure many of you will have seen some cards circulating the internet where one lady from Falmouth, Becky Wass, decided she wanted to write a better story for the world and spread kindness and love rather than fear and doubt. A brilliant idea and we encourage you to do what you can to love and serve Croydon in these uncertain times. You can get print-ready versions of the card to use at this link - https://www.vineyardchurches.org.uk/resources/viral-kindness/
