1 Day Purpose - Transform Dunfermline

1 Day Purpose
Transform Dunfermline
Saturday 5th March 2011

The purpose of Transform Dunfermline is to prepare and encourage the church in Dunfermline to unite in preparation for Impact World Tour, a community wide evangelistic campaign taking place in October and November 2011. One day to pray, fast and worship to change our community. Transform Dunfermline will inspire you to continue to pray and commit to see our community reached with the truth of Jesus. You will hear what God is doing across the country and around the world to forge "unity with purpose" while leaving room for God to accomplish his purposes in your community.

Transform Dunfermline will take place in Viewfield Baptist Church. From 12noon – 4pm there will be a mix of corporate and individual prayer, as well as prayer stations. Different churches and worship groups will lead out in praise and prayer throughout the afternoon. Come for a while or stay the whole time. Then there will be a community gathering at 7.30pm, again in Viewfield Baptist. The evening speaker will be Iain Sutherland, minister of Gillespie Memorial Church, and there will be a community wide worship band.

Coming soon..........

Our new look website will be launched very soon.  We will always be on the hunt for good stories of what God has been doing to share and any really good quality photo's that capture the life that is around our scene.  Contact the office if you have anything to offer. 

Some, or indeed all of these people will be coming soon.......... . They are praying into whether God would have them come as part of the Athens Link to visit the Dunfermline Link.  The dates to be putting in your diary are 4th to the 13th June. At the moment there is a lot of investigating flights, and prayer, as they are very expensive.

Coming soon too should be a whole team to get the work started on the repairs our building requires following the flood.

Thanking God

 In 1997 God blessed us with the vision and resources to buy this building. 
Ten years ago this week our building underwent a radical transformation.  Many of us can remember the pink pillars and the pink and green floral wall paper.  Dot, in the graphic designer phase of her life, came up with a colour scheme that has stood the test of time. A team of willing volunteers from St James in Athens, led by Dave Staton, boarded a plane, totally unaware the size of the task ahead of them, and worked tirelessly with many of our own people.  Our main hall was changed that week beyond recognition and  many lives were changed too as friendships were formed and God worked deep into lives. Do you remember the snow?  The freezing trip to Stirling castle? 
Ten years on it is right to pause a little and thank God for his faithfulness, his provision and his immense love!  It is right to remember how, with God, huge impossible tasks can be completed and have our faith stirred again to reach into Him.
It is right too to thank our friends who worked with us and send greetings back to those separated by a vast ocean! Haste ye back soon. No painting or scaffolding unless of course you want a wee challenge.............!!
