Beth Quelch is working with Samaritan’s Purse at a hospital in South Sudan. The situation there is far worse than she expected. They do not have enough nurses and equipment and supplies, as basic as soap, appear to be non- existent. Please pray for Beth and her fellow workers as they try to work in these very difficult circumstances.
Marriage Course coming this autumn! If you are married or engaged to be married, then the relationship you have with your spouse (or future spouse) is the second most important relationship that you will ever have.
Ross and Bertie invite couples to join them for a series of talks on DVD followed by discussion questions, both for group work and in couples, and there will be some homework! The course is based very much in Biblical truth and is much more about principles rather than sessions on specific areas such as money, children, intimacy etc. The course will run over 5 weeks, starting on 11th September and you will need to enrol by 4th September (We will require couples to commit to completing the whole course). Please talk to Ross or Bertie to find out more.
Essex Christian Camp Sunday is the start of Essex Christian Camp week at Earl Stonham and Mitch and Zach Rowden are both going this year and Hannah Bostock will be going as a leader. Please pray for a good week both with regard to the weather and that the children will have a good time.
Apparently this is the biggest camp yet and they have had to turn some children away as they ran out of spaces.
Vinjeru Quiz night If you like quizzes please keep the evening of 24 September free. Starting at 7pm at the Plume School, this one is in aid of the school in Zambia. Fliers will follow.
Please continue to pray for those people with ongoing health problems and especially for Wendy who has recently been diagnosed with cancer and for Michelle and family as Michelle undergoes an operation on Monday
Also remember the Southwold Beach Mission which continues up until the 12th August.
