[paragraph extra=””]When I needed a neighbour, were you there?

We are now in a very exciting stage of development. We are beginning to see the opening of the Harrogate Hub!

However, we will only get there with considerable support from being one church in Harrogate, working together.

Work is progressing well with new internal plastered walls, electrics and heating. All the debris from the site has been removed and the contractors are ready to second fix – this is a technical term for putting in the kitchenette, disabled toilet, worktops, new lighting, doors etc … There is still loads to do!

So… Volunteer decorators, cleaners, tea and cake makers are needed for the week beginning Tuesday 7th June when painting the walls begins. I wonder if Nehemiah had this issue?

There are three floors in the building to be decorated. Not forgetting a stairwell!

We can make a start decorating the top and middle floors ready for the training of the Pastoral Care Volunteers to commence at the end of June.

From Tuesday 7th June through to Saturday 11 June – we are open for volunteer decorators and cleaners.

Please get in touch. The church decorating together will progress the Kingdom of God. Really!
Let us know the day and time you are able to come – it will be organised. Promise!

Email us now –

Don’t forget your rollers, brushes and trays. It will be fun! And you will be greatly blessed!

A message from our Interior Designer:

I am hoping to get a modular sofa for the ground floor space!  Please let me know if anybody has any contacts with office supply companies for this.

We are fortunate to have furniture for the middle floor and the office on the top floor.

I am always happy to hear of any input or contacts people may have.

Pastoral Carers

We are looking for at least one Pastoral Carer from each church of the 27 Churches Together in Harrogate. I am told there are 36 churches altogether; at least one from each of the 36 would be fabulous! Unity will be shared as we pool our pastoral resources to reach people with unmet need in our town. ‘Thy Kingdom come…’

Faithful Christian men and women with the gifts of caring for your neighbour, come and join our network of pastoral carers to befriend and signpost people suffering from isolation, loneliness, injustice, oppression, brokenness…

‘The harvest is plentiful but the workers are few …’

For more details and an information Pastoral Care Pack please contact me:
