As you read this, we will just be entering the season between Ascension and Pentecost. As a church, we're wanting to press into prayer. There's some great ways to do this: 8 at 8, Bow Down on Feltham Green, monthly church prayer gathering & all night prayer vigil, Pentecost prayer evening. More details below. Would you commit to at least one of these?
Last Sunday I also let you into a secret! Pete Greig is coming back to Riverside Vineyard on Tues 10th September. More details below.
Please book now before the event goes "public"!
Lastly, this coming Sunday we're going to be announcing what was given to the Open Hand project, part of our on-going church centre development. Please don't miss out on what is going to be exciting news!
There's lots of other things going on. Please read on and click on links to find out more.

THE GREAT RIVERSIDE BAKE OFF
SUNDAY 30TH JUNE, 10:30AM
We're having another Cake Sale fundraiser for our upcoming youth trip to Soul Survivor festival. This is going to take place on the 30th June at our Celebration Sunday service (single service 10.30am). The Cake Sale theme this year is 'Soul Survivor' so the cake decorations can be camping, Guitar or instruments, sports, Mike Pilavachi or just the name Soul Survivor... let your creativity run wild!
This year all the young people who are attending Soul Survivor are making a cake, but if you would also like to join in the fun and enjoy making cakes, email Gavin at firstname.lastname@example.org
All the proceeds from the cake sale will go towards us helping a bunch of young people to attend the festival plus will help us with many other costs that we incur in transporting and catering for our youth group at Soul Survivor.
If your not really a baker but enjoy eating cakes please do come join us on the 30th June and purchase some incredible cakes after the service.

Drinks and Nibbles provided. Come to the Church Road allotment gate in Feltham (Adjacent to 28 Church Road, TW13 6SP) where you'll be met by one of the team.
Do you have a Young Person in your family looking for voluntary opportunities for schemes such as the Duke Of Edinburgh Awards? If you do, why not consider volunteering at Riverside? We have had teenagers helping out in Young Vineyard on Sunday's, Saturday Storehouse, Thursday allotment, more technical things like sound desk and also on some regular venue projects - so something for everyone! There are all sorts of opportunities, so if you'd like to find out more, please do get in touch with the office and we'll do what we can to accommodate you.
