Please do get in touch with us to provide any feedback, enquire about anything you may need…..or purely and simply to keep in touch!
We are excited to launch a new series this week helping us all consider how we come out of lockdown well. What practical advice does the Bible have for us in that?

2 Opportunities to gather for prayer this week.
In our building this week, we are piloting some prayer gatherings. They will be:
THURS 11:15–12noon — for those in vulnerable categories
THURS 8pm–9pm — open to anybody
Both of these require prior sign-up, and you can sign up at goldhill.org/prayermeeting
We are encouraging everyone to get prayer walking on their streets and in our community. We’ll be providing some resources for this on Monday through the website, so do check back in our blog to see that. We are believing for great things in our village as we pray through it together!
Our virtual prayer ministry team are ready to pray with you. So if you would like someone to pray for or with you over the phone or video, send a message to this number (or call if you can’t text) and you’ll be linked up: 07961 815 388.
Please lift up big, audacious prayers this week for:
Gold Hill and Hope Church families and their leaders as we seek to see God’s kingdom come to Chalfont St Peter and the surrounding areas.
Our brothers and sisters in churches across South Bucks,that God would be moving mightily across our region at this time.
Local initiatives (community support and Foodbanks) as we seek to share the good news of hope in Jesus with those most vulnerable.
For unity, that the racial divisions that have become prominent in media in recent weeks would be dissipated, and replaced with unrelenting unity.
For revival, that we would see God move powerfully across this nation, and the church step boldly and bravely into all that God has for her.
On the engagement of Alfred Biehler and Helen Watkins
We are thrilled to share the news of Alfred and Helen’s engagement, and encourage everyone to pray for them as they make plans and prepare to marry. Well done to you both!
We want to help anybody who would like a bit of extra help with Zoom. One of our members, Paul, will be running some training on Thursday evening. It’s likely we’ll be using Zoom for a number of things in coming months, so if you want some guidance, come and join in! Please contact the office to let us know, and we will share details with you.

We are partnered with the Chiltern Food Bank as a distribution centre. The Food Bank does such important work and we are so glad to be part of it. You can read a short article about it here to find out a little more.
