Spring Is In The Air................
Who would believe that Gerald, Anona, Gary, Joyce and Cathy would have been fighting their way through such atrocious weather conditions last Thursday to get to the Pioneer Conference! A few days later we are enjoying temperatures into the double figures again – that’s good ole Blighty for you!
The reports are that the conference was well worth the battle to get there with great contributions from Alan Scott, Dave Gilpin, Roger Ellis and Wayne Drain. The conference was streamed live online and you can listen to the talks at the link here.
Women’s World Day Of Prayer 2nd March
Huge thanks to Debbie, Vimla, Jenny, Margaret, Christine and Sharon who did a brilliant job hosting this years event although turn out was very low due to the adverse weather conditions. All who attended said the Lord blessed them so it was an intimate precious time.
Last Sunday 4th March
We met in our Engage@home groups and the word is out that the kids had lots of fun cooking in one group whilst the adults listened to a message from Bill Johnson. Another group prayed for each other over a meal. Other people met in their group for the first time but no one had to brave the snow to get to a group this week! These groups are where we have the opportunity to break bread and remember the cost of our salvation.
Next Sunday 11th March (Mothering Sunday)
We will be back at church halls to hear Andy tell his story and there will be a sign-up sheet for the Extravagant Love Cart on the 24th March to help give out loads of gifts to shoppers between 11am – 12noon. It’s great fun so make sure you don’t miss signing up!
