For the first three weeks of this month the midweek programme will follow the usual pattern. The following week sees the schools’ half term break when there will be a prayer meeting on Tuesday morning, 9.30-10.30, and an extended Communion Service on Thursday evening, 8.00-9.15.
During the weekend 6 to 8 October fifteen of our ladies will be away at Oak Hall Manor, Otford, for Coldharbour’s first Ladies’ Conference, and will be joined by others just for the Saturday. There is still room for any who may also wish to attend - details available from Michele, Nadege or Gemma. Please pray that the ladies will enjoy good fellowship, be spiritually refreshed and challenged as they share God’s word together.
Tobias Andrews is to be dedicated during the Sunday morning service on 22 October; the occasion will be followed by a fellowship meal.
Some of our ladies much enjoyed and benefitted from attending last year’s London Women’s Convention. This year’s event is on Saturday 14 October at The Emmanuel Centre, Westminster. Rebekah B writes:- ‘The theme is How Great is Our God? and the guest speaker is Jen Wilkin, ‘a writer, speaker and Bible teacher whose passion is to encourage women to love God with their minds through the faithful study of His word. She is author of ‘Women of the Word’ (an excellent book which I read myself recently), and ‘None Like Him’".
There will be three talks on the day, the titles of which are:
- A Woman who fears the Lord. H
- How great is our God?
- God, fearful and wonderful.
There are two sessions to choose from on the day, either the ‘Daylight’ (8:45 to 14:30) or the ‘Twilight’ (14:45-20:00).
Standard tickets are £25 plus a £1 booking charge.
Do speak to me if you want any more information or help with booking.’
Finally, a reminder to us all that the clocks go back one hour on Saturday night 28 October.
The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases,
His mercies never come to an end;
they are new every morning, new every morning,
great is your faithfulness, O Lord,
great is your faithfulness!
