A New Season?
Last Friday 6th – Mangobean Prayer Party:
Gerald read to us about the Hebridean revival and how history was changed by two ladies praying. Then we looked at bringing light into the darkness and sharing our testimony. Then we prayed for our mission into the area, with all those present participating. It felt a very intimate time together.
Last Saturday 7th – Harvest Supper :
A fun evening shared with the local churches, and a chance to catch up with them about what they are doing and build useful bridges between the churches. Amusingly our table answered the quiz question ‘”which is a Sacred Underground Tube station?” with ‘Temple’ but had it ruled out in favour of the official answer ‘St Pauls’. So we missed out on the prize.
Last Sunday 8th:
John Noble read a prepared statement listing those who had left us for various reasons which the church found very helpful. John then gave a first class talk on ‘Relationships, Church and Commitment’. This is now up on the website – several people commented they needed to listen to it again because it was so good and so detailed. Luke Hamlyn led us in worship and again did brilliantly; especially when you consider how hard it is to match songs to a talk with that title!
Next Sunday 15th – Gerald Coates, Dave Bilbrough:
Dave Bilbrough will lead us in worship and Gerald will speak on ‘Hope in a Hopeless World’.
Sunday December 3rd – Church Christmas Meal:
This will be a special event for all the church and for family and friends you may want to invite. Meet 4 pm then shortly afterwards you will be served turkey and trimmings followed by pudding/sweets. This is a thank you for your work and participation in the church over the last year. Simply bring soft drinks. Free tickets will be available soon.
Leadership Notice – We are actively looking to encourage Contributions:
There are some Sundays which are filled with worship and a speaker. The others are being deliberately designed to make room for contributions from church members – please do come prepared to share and bless the church family.
