Filey Lions Bonfire November 1st 2014



The bonfire will be lit at 6.30pm and the Fireworks will begin at 7.15pm. Taking place as usual in the Glen Gardens Car Park at the end of West Avenue. Plenty of parking in town with 5-10 mins walk to venue. Just follow the crowds!! Every year the Filey Lions put on a spectacular show for the town, a Safe Place to enjoy Fireworks, with food and drinks to buy, a lantern Competition, First Aid Cover and WC facilities.
Entry is Free, but donations 'in the bucket' go to buying the Fireworks for next year . Post your pictures to Filey Parish Facebook page so that we can all enjoy them !

Cafe Church OKA #cafechurchfiley





is at 9.30 for 10am on Sunday Mornings , NEXT ONE IS 12TH OCTOBER and is not all sitting down having a coffee. The coffee and teas are good, the atmosphere relaxed, children play happily and quietly because they feel welcome. People who just want to sit and watch the action do so, and not only do we have a laugh,  we manage the reflective bits as well. Joy isn't something we turn on. It means Jesus and You and nothing in between . 
If you feel you want to know about how to find Joy , or more joy, or joy to help you cope with just day to day setbacks , you might like #cafechurchfiley. We can help you to find your own way to Jesus,  to have a personal relationship with HIM, sounds crazy but its so simple. 
If you are reading this and live miles away from Filey , there will be a Christian Church near you just praying for you to join them. 

We are all beginners , but some of us are already on the journey , and have our  manufacturers Handbook  and the fellowship of others to encourage us. 

You might like to pray 

Dear Lord Jesus,
I so want to believe you are who Christians say you are, the son of Almighty God.
I have heard people going on about the Holy Spirit too and just want to know more.
I want to start a new life, to put the past behind me and with YOUR help find your outstretched hand 
Now is the time , Lets do it! 

Show me who to share with and where to go
In the name of Jesus (Christians do as Jesus said , and pray in HIS name)
Amen .(means lets do it)








#cafechurchfiley is our hashtag

I testify. A brilliantly simple idea

I have copied this from the latest e-letter from Fresh Expressions. Nothing speaks about Jesus , His love for us and our reaching to take His outstretched hand better than hearing how others did it. What encouragement!




The idea is simple – short, digital testimonies of up to 3 minutes.
Recorded on your phone or tablet and sent to us here we would hope to build a site of faith stories to inspire and encourage.
There’s not much we ask for format wise other than the films being with who you are (Christian name will do) and where you live (town/city rather than full postcode) and then how it is you came to faith in Jesus Christ.
How to send it to us:
Once recorded please send us your film via a file sharing website such as www.filepigeon.com
1) Upload the file from your phone, tablet, computer etc
2) Add the email address you are sending it to: Talitha.proud@churchofengland.org
3) In advanced options, add your contact details so we know who is sending us the file
4) Press send. (If you are sending it from your phone it will work quicker connected to wi-fi rather than 3G/4G)
If filepigeon doesn’t work for you, you can also try sites such as www.wetransfer.com, or www.filesnack.com.
We would get in touch with you just to check you are happy with your story going up on the site before we publish it.
Currently we are looking to go live sometime in October and hope to do so with a large number of fantastic faith stories.

If you have any questions or queries do feel free to get in touch with Talitha Proud atTalitha.proud@churchofengland.org

A prayer for the present situation

I have just been to visit aged parent in her Care Home . She is confused and has memory loss. Today she was sitting as usual in her chair with todays paper open on her lap. She asked me where the Islamic State was. I explained and asked her to pray . It seems that the Lord is raising up all his Prayer warriors. My mother has not talked about anything of the world for nearly a year until today .
My sister in Cheshire has just sent me this , which is circulating in her fellowship circles. 

I will send it to Mother, she loves post , and I love it that she is still being used by her Heavenly Father.
