Vicar's update 5th September         Steve4to5-3244373775-O

What a wonderful week we had at our Mega Makers Holiday Club!  If you were at the 10.30 service yesterday you will have got a flavour of what went on.  It was so encouraging to hear stories of children going home and telling their parents about Jesus and even choosing to come to church on Sunday rather than go and play football as usual.  I am so grateful to the amazing team who gave so much of themselves during the week – without you it couldn’t have happened so THANK YOU.
Prayer is vital to our life as a church and our monthly Prayer Meeting is tomorrow evening (Tuesday 6th) at 8pm for one hour.    Do come and join us as we pray for Alpha, the new Missional Community, our new staff and so much more.  We have seen so many answers to prayer, let’s ask God for even more.
Next Sunday 11th is Vision Sunday as we outline our vision for the coming season.   We will also be joined by members of The Grove – the new Missional Community on Gurnell Grove so that we can commission and pray for them.  Ash Abbott our new Worship Minister will be involved in leading sung worship at the 10.30am service for the first time.
The following Sunday, 18th we are launching Alpha and at 10.30 baptising a number of people by full immersion.  These are always exciting and moving services – do mark the date in your diary as we celebrate with them their faith in Jesus Christ.
Wishing you a good week.
With my love
