The church Wellspring CGC, based in Upper Saxondale, will be holding a launch event for the change in their name on 19th September.
It has been called Wellspring for almost 20 years but the current pastors believe that the time is right to change the name.
The pastors, Dave and Lizzi Baskeyfield, have a big vision for the church and lots of plans to make it more relevant and influential in the local communities.
They decided, therefore, that a new name would better represent the new direction that the church is taking.
The church currently holds twice-weekly parent and toddler groups. It has just started to help maintain and improve the local estate’s public gardens and it holds numerous events throughout the year, such as community fairs, children’s parties, quiz nights and Christmas events.
Dave and Lizzi want to significantly increase the services it offers to the local community and are planning to hold marriage courses and youth nights in the near future.
The church has also launched a fundraising project called Operation Heatwave, with the aim of raising enough funds for a new heating system.
This will facilitate the increase in courses and events available for the community.
