“I will make you as a light for the nations, that my salvation may reach to the end of the earth” Isaiah 49 v 6b
Sunday Service Today Matt Springett (with a little bit of help from his family) will be the leader and speaker on our YouTube service. The bible reading is Acts 13 vs 44-52.
Live church service update We had some very positive and appreciative feedback from our first service in our building last week. In order to plan our next steps ahead of our Elders and Deacons meeting this coming Tuesday, we invited feedback from those who attended the service. We would value your prayers that the sense of unity and clarity that the Lord gave us at our last meeting would continue as we seek His wisdom in these strange times for us all. Thank you. Elders and Deacons

Operation Christmas Child
Life is hard under Covid restrictions…so just imagine what it’s like for children suffering the same pandemic whilst living in poverty or in refugee camps around the world. So, let’s bring a smile to the face of a child this Christmas by packing a shoebox.
If you would like a pre-printed shoebox and leaflet, please contact Gilly and she will deliver it to your door. Filled shoeboxes can be left at the Church, dropped off at the Springett residence or, you can arrange for Gilly to pick them up.
Alternatively, you can build a shoebox online by visiting:Samaritans Purse
So let’s get packing!
