Joy in January…..Fellowship News (Jan 2020)

January 9, 2020

Joy in January. … a time of happiness and joy, gladness and honour. (Esther 8:16b). May 2020 be a year that brings joy to our hearts and to those finding salvation and blessing in knowing Christ as Redeemer and Friend.

This month we look forward to a visit from Jason Murfitt, who, with Andrea and the newly enlarged family, are preparing, under the auspices of Grace Baptist Mission, to settle and develop the Lord’s work in Madeira later this year.

We have, for some years, given some financial and prayerful support to the Murfitt family while they were in Brazil, and now we have the opportunity to hear of what the Lord is doing in their lives as Jason visits us.

He will share a little of their plans in the morning service, but will be primarily giving us a presentation in the 6.30pm service on 19th Jan. Can we urge you to make that effort to be at church for both these services. It will be a fascinating and helpful presentation—as ever when Jason shares.

Services this month

Our pastor, Calix will be leading most of the other services this month, but we also look forward to our brother, Richard Smith taking a service for the first time—6.30pm on 26th Jan. Pray for him and for Calix as they preach.

Calix’s theology course resumes on 14th. Pray for him and the family  for the Lord to encourage them all as a family.
Give thanks that the possibility of the church being able to purchase its own manse is growing steadily.  . Pray the right property will become available soon.

Pray for those who are unwell. PLEASE see this months Connect Magazine .
