Looking forward to 2020

Our verse for 2020 is Matthew 6:33 But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.

Harvest Celebration & a Sad Farewell

On Sunday 14th September we celebrated our annual Harvest Festival with a collection of tinned & packaged food for the Foodshed in Stevenage. The Foodshed supports individuals and families in need by providing essential food and toiletries. We also sad goodbye to Dot and Owen Smith who have served the church faithfully since it’s beginning in 2006.

Love Stevenage 2019

Great Ashby Community Church was really excited to be part of Love Stevenage 2019. We joined with a number of other local churches to organise an Accessible Fun Day for children with additional needs. Children from across the town came to enjoy bouncy castles, soft play, crafts, drama, games, sports & even Shetland ponies. The whole event was free. As part of Love Stevenage we aim to demonstrate the love of Jesus for the people of our town.

Great Ashby Tidy Up

At Great Ashby Community Church we value our neighbourhood and want to keep it looking nice. A group of us spent a morning gardening in front of the community centre weeding & planting some flowers. Another group spent an hour litter picking in the local park. It was good to have some help from 3 of the Great Ashby community councillors.
