On the weekend of the 4th and 5th February, our link missionaries Lucy & Mac* will be visiting the area.
Lucy & Mac, along with their two sons, are currently serving in Guinea with BMS World Mission. Whilst with us they will be sharing some of their experiences and how God has been at work so far. This should be a great opportunity to get to know them a bit better, encourage them in their work and find out how we can better support them in the future.
There are two special events happening over the weekend:
On Sat 4th Feb at 3.30pm Lucy & Mac will be at the Ebenezer Chapel to give a talk followed by a bring and share tea.
On Sun 5th Feb at 10.30am we will be joining our friends at Brixington Community Church for a united service at which Luc & Mac will be sharing. The service will be followed by a bring and share lunch.
All are very welcome to either event – please join us to support this special family.

On Sunday 18th December at 6pm we will be holding our annual Candlelit Carol Service at the Ebenezer Chapel.
This is a more traditional service with well-loved carols and readings, followed by a buffet supper.
All are very welcome, so join us if you can. Please be aware that parking can be tricky around the chapel, so you may need to allow extra time to park further away.
