We’ve endured a period of very cold wintry weather, so trust that you have all managed to keep yourselves safe and warm.
An informal Church Members’ meeting has been arranged for Thursday 15 March at 8pm. In order to give this priority, no group Bible studies will take place during this week.
On Saturday 17 March, Christian & Esther are planning, God willing, to hold a ‘Baby Shower’ at the church from 2-5pm. This is an open invitation to all the church (men included), and will have a ‘high tea theme’ plus games etc. Christian will also be giving a short 5 minute talk on the value/wonder of life, pregnancy, and the faithfulness of God.
We look forward to celebrating Easter at the end of the month. In that week our Bible study programme will be replaced by the usual Easter joint churches’ gatherings. This year it is Court Farm’s turn to be the host when there will be the opportunity for a reflective, unhurried Communion Service on Thursday evening 29 March at 8pm. The Good Friday service will also be held at Court Farm at 10.30am.
Easter cards are in the process of being prepared for distribution in the local area, giving us the opportunity to reach out with the Gospel into the community. Please pray that God will use the cards to remind people of the true significance of the season.
Home news/prayer items for the April 2018 newsletter are welcome—to Julia D please by Thursday 29 March.
On Saturday 21 April, from 2 to 5pm there will be an opportunity to learn more about the work of Christian Prison Resourcing at their annual meeting at Elmstead Lane Baptist Church; a buffet tea will be included in the programme. If you are interested in attending, please email [email protected] to let them know so numbers can be obtained for refreshment purposes.
There is no panic in Heaven!
God has no problems, only plans.
