Welcome to this morning’s service the speaker and service leader is Simon Quelch. Please join us for a cup of tea or coffee in the back room after the service.
Tea and Coffee Rota Julian and Carolyn are responsible for teas and coffees today. Next week it will be Phil Rowden and Carolyn.
Urgent appeal for help on coffee rota Louise is in the process of compiling the rota for the next three months and is finding it difficult to fill all the spaces. Doing teas and coffees is a great way to meet and serve the Fullbridge family.
Sunday Morning prayer rota If you would like prayer after the service Anne and Philip Reeve will be available.
Open House There is no Open House this evening. From the rota I have been given the next one will be on Sunday 5th June.
Home groups will meet at the following homes

Wednesday group – Jean Marc’s
For the other two groups please contact your group leaders for details.
Home group questions
- Discuss the view that in the UK we are quiet about the message of Jesus and his resurrection because we fear being accused of imposing the Good News on others? To avoid being accused of arrogance is it better to keep quiet?
- In Acts 4 v’s 32-35 the early Church declared the Good News with power despite much opposition. What attitudes were present in the early Church that created an environment of power?
- Read Acts 2 v 41- 42. What can we do, or continue to do, practically in our situation to imitate those early believers? Or is it unrealistic to try to do so?
4.What are the signs that we are living like servants?
