The Noise 2016

thenoise16 top
It's the start of 2016 and Bristol Noise continues to grow...
Our values are still to 'serve community', 'build unity' and 'encourage discipleship’ as we show God's love in practical ways in urban estate communities in Bristol. 
The Noise 2016 weekend is: Saturday 30th April - Bank Holiday Monday 2nd May, and we are looking forward to sharing more detail over the next few months.

Here are some highlights of what has been happening since last May -

thenoise16  1The Noise 2015 weekend statistics - 920 volunteers, from over 70 different churches/groups, worked in 10 communities in North and East Bristol. 400 of these volunteers were a part of a Family Team or Youth Group Team! Over 100 community projects were completed. 7 (mostly dry!) family fun afternoons. 5 different events for senior citizens. 3 football coaching and tournament events. Plus, family photos, a community cafe, car washing, prayer teams, and more...

thenoise16  2The Noise in Devizes - A team from Devizes, Wiltshire, took part in the Noise weekend in Bristol last year. It was so encouraging to see the first ever 'The Noise in Devizes' take place on 3/4 October 2015, with over 100 volunteers working to help improve the environment, serve their neighbours and have lots of fun together! Check out their website here for more details and photos.

thenoise16  3The Noise throughout the year - We are seeing more church small groups and youth groups take on practical community projects that are referred to us throughout the year. It’s great to be able to facilitate and encourage this. It’s also been good to see our partnerships with community and statuary organisations across the city strengthen and develop more.

thenoise16  4The Noise Interns - Rachel Coles and Joe Pavey are our first Noise interns! We are excited to have them as part of the team, to use their gifts, and see how this new development will enable Bristol Noise to grow and impact the city.

To enable Bristol Noise charity to continue to grow, we need your support in volunteering, prayer and financially. Check out some suggestions below of how you can help and get involved! Please also look out for the Noise Thunderclap on social media and get involved in helping us launch #thenoise2016 on 8th February.

Thanks for your support!

Our brand new website will be launched around 8th February and volunteers will then be able to register as individuals, family teams and youth groups (www.thenoise.org.uk). In the meantime, encourage friends and family to start thinking about getting involved in The Noise 2016 (30 April - 2nd May)!
Thunderclap is an "online flash mob" - join in and we will share the same message at the same time, spreading the message about the 'Launch of The Noise 2016' through Facebook and Twitter on Monday 8th February. Simply go HERE and click on the 'support' buttons and login with your 
Facebook and/or twitter accounts. Thank you!!

'100 Days of Prayer : The Noise 2016' starts on Thursday 21st January - would you be willing to commit yourself to praying for The Noise in the run up to the weekend?
Your prayers have a huge impact on Bristol Noise as a charity, in the communities we work in, on our city as a whole, and the Noise weekend itself! Let us know by responding to this email if you would like to receive this weekly prayer email.

If you are in leadership in any church across the Bristol Region then we would love for you to encourage a group to get involved in The Noise 2016. The Noise is a practical way for the church in Bristol to serve together and show God's love in urban estate communities.
Promo videos, powerpoints, volunteer registration flyers, video interviews will all be available over the next few months to raise the profile of The Noise 2016 in your church.
