July at Vineyard
Hope that this email finds you well!
There seems to be a significant number within our community who are having a particularly tough time just now and we just want to let you know that in the past week we have been proactively praying and ask others to join with us in prayer for you. On Sunday 1st July some folks will be fasting for breakthrough. As we do that our prayer is "Take courage." Your heavenly Dad not only sees you, but wants the very best for you - his intrinsic nature is to weep with those who weep - to comfort the mourning, He is such a good good Father. We want to deeply encourage you that if you are not one of those going through a tough time, would you ask Jesus how you can help to bring courage to lift heads and eyes, to those around you? Doing family, life together, is not theoretical, it has to be put into practice and isn't always convenient! But you could literally help lifting someone else's head by sharing the words of encouragement and head lifting that the Father gives you for other people. Personally, we also find ourselves proactively worshipping in these times, even when we don't feel like it, blessing and praying for others when we just don't feel like it, as a strategy against the enemy's plans.
Give A Day to the city is here!! We are excited for all the Father will do and it's not too late for you to get involved. Check out the info below for more details.
Due to Give A Day our gatherings will look like slightly different. We will be gathering as normal on Sunday 8th, 15th and 22nd for details on Sunday the 1st see below.
July is also the month of the lift!! The lift will arrive towards the end of the month, the builders have been on site creating the opening in the ceiling in preparation. Andy has been working super hard with a mighty stack of volunteers on Tuesday nights quick shout out to Tim Ingham we honour you for all that you have done and given. Have a chat with Andy to ask how you can be involved, and we will have sign ups available on the 8th July.

We love baptisms at Carlisle Vineyard! They are a symbol of the new life that the Father is doing in and through us as we give our lives to Him. If you've recently given your life to Jesus, or have done so a long while ago but never been baptised, we'd love to extend an invitation to come on the Baptism journey! We will have Baptisms on the 30th September, to sign up or find out more fill in the form below!
