Sun 21st Jan
Tomorrow we've got two opportunities to worship together:
- At 10.30am we'll be at the chapel and online for our morning worship service, in which we'll be starting a new series looking at some of the parables Jesus told.
- At 6pm we'll be joining others from across the town at St. Peter's Church for this year's service for the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity.
Do join us if you can!
On Thursday 1st Feb there will be another prayer vigil for the situation in Gaza & Israel. This will be held from 5-5.30pm at Temple Methodist Church.
All are welcome.
Our next Church Meeting will be held after our morning service on Sunday 4th Feb. This is a time of worship, sharing news and hearing God's voice together. Everyone si welcome, so please bring some lunch with you and join us!
BMS World Mission
Please join us this week as we pray for BMS’ Hope for the World ministries.
- Please pray for our partner in Nepal, the Multipurpose Community Development Service, which comes alongside villages to improve all aspects of life.
- One of the ways we tackle injustice and suffering is by sending skilled mission workers to the world’s poorest countries. Pray for the work of Andrea and Mark Hotchkin at an understaffed, underfunded hospital in Bardaï, northern Chad.
- On the big screen at last year’s Baptist Assembly, we saw Dil Bahadur Chhetri and his fellow Nepalese mission worker and climate change specialist, Sahara Mishra. Pray that God will guide their path.
