Yare Valley Filling Station set to relaunch 

The popular Yare Valley Filling Station, formerly in Bergh Apton, is being relaunched with meetings to be held at Poringland Community Centre, from February 21.

An introductory celebration evening will take place on Friday February 21, 7pm for 7.30pm and will start with coffee and cake. All adults are welcome, whether they have a Christian faith, or are just interested in finding out more.
Organiser Kevin Gotts, said: “The Filling Station is an informal way of expressing and finding out about the Christian faith. We are part of a growing non-denominational network which now has over 100 meetings within the UK attended by 5000 people.
“We are not a new independent church movement, rather a model of how existing churches can work together to bring new spiritual life to their areas and, in the process, bring many people to faith in Jesus Christ.  One of our fundamental principles is to promote Christian unity. As it says in Psalm 133: 1 ‘How good and pleasant it is when brothers live together in unity! ... for there the Lord bestows his blessing, even life for evermore.’
“We offer high quality speakers, contemporary sung worship and accessible prayer ministry.  And we find that local churches are strengthened and helped in many ways,” said Kevin.
“Our vision includes to be an active, supportive part of the Christian community, and be beacons of light and hope, and reinforce Jesus words of Living Life to the Full (John 10 v10).  We want to see local churches full and thriving, being a Blessing to members and the wider community.”
The meeting will take place at Poringland Community Centre, Overtons Way, Poringland, near Norwich, NR14 7WB
