Welcome!

Welcome to our weekly info page! In this rather unusual season, we are trying to stay in touch by many means and mechanisms.  We pray that this Weekly Info sheet will help to keep you connected with us, with each other and with your neighbourhood.  Our priorities are to see people well-supported and resourced, but importantly to help people to grow their relationship with God and have impact on those around us as we operate as ‘scattered church’.  If you have any questions or queries, please don’t hesitate to contact us. If you are just connecting wtih Gold Hill for the first time, we hope you will feel really welcomed online at present (or by phone, of course!) and look forward to meeting friends old and new when we return to the building!

NOTICES

GOD IS ON THE MOVE!

God is doing much in our village (and further afield!) to foster community and bring openness of heart to the British people.  If you have a particular story you could share, we would love to hear: contact us by phone, or email (office@goldhill.org; testimony@goldhill.org or staff personal emails.) Let’s all encourage one another to ‘seize the moment’ and celebrate together!
