City Valley Blog

City Valley is not just a church, it’s a family. We are God's household. Therefore, we don't want anyone to miss anything. It can be a busy place, church. You may be serving behind the scenes or with the children’s work on Sunday mornings or you may have been unwell or unable to attend the meetings for another reason. As a church we don't want any of our family to miss anything and so we plan to make events and talks as accessible as possible. Sunday morning talks are recorded and uploaded to the podcast area of the website every week. We aim to post a monthly catch up with links to podcasts, speaker references and resources, feedback from events and notices, from the last month.  

The blog also features posts from time to time about news and information relevant to City Valley, the wider church, our family of churches in Christ Central which is part of the New Frontiers movement.

You can also find our posts on our Facebook page where you can 'follow' the page to get notifications of posts. 

We hope you enjoy reading the blog. 

Thanks for visiting. 

Where is Joy? - (Christmas at City Valley, Part Two.)

date21st December 2017

In the hustle and bustle that is this week with the run up to Christmas, it is easy to get caught up in the flow and lose sight of why we celebrate Christmas. On Sunday we heard from Mike Sprenger of Hope church, Harrogate. Mike is a frequent visitor to City Valley and always most welcome. Mike brought to us a talk on everlasting ‘Joy’ and where we can find it in this world. Reading from, Luke 2: 8-19, the account of the angel Gabriel appearing to the shepherds as they tended to their flock overnight.  

You can listen to Mike’s talk HERE.

You can also listen to part one of our Chrsitmas at City Valley 'Where is Comfort?' by Dave Nobbs HERE. 

Next week is our Christmas Eve service at 10.30am. We will be celebrating a family service of traditional carols and modern worship. We'll also be opening our third advent present and talking about the gift inside.

Please join us and feel free to invite a friend.
