Thanks

To the people who came to our Christmas Services, we hope that they felt a friendly welcome and want to join us again.  We were able to send £200.00 from our Christmas Services for the work of the Homeless and Rootless at Christmas, thank you.

 

Items for Prayer

For the Leadership Team as they work together.  We thank them for all they do for us and the church - God bless you all.

For Andy and Caroline as they wind-up their current work and prepare to join us.

For Beryl Lingard and Josie Mitchell finding it increasingly difficult to get out and about.

For Tricia, Howard and Michael.

For Pat facing another Cataract operation, that all may go well.

 

Pause for Thought

Ruth 2:12  “May you be richly rewarded by the Lord, under whose wings you have come to take refuge”.

What picture does this bring to mind?  God is our safe space, our comforter and refuge in the midst of all else.  Even while life swirls on around us, we can withdraw to that secret place and take refuge, as Ruth did, in the presence of God.  There are very practical ways we can do this.  Pray, in whatever way is comfortable - go for a walk, write down what’s on your mind, draw a little symbol of being under God’s wings.  Pray with people, too.  God loves to make the church a place of refuge for his people.  May the Lord protect you as we go forward into 2020.
