Update from Pastor Craig 17.08.2020

Hi all

A huge thank you to all of our teams who are serving us so well at church online. Our worship team, children’s team, our preachers and service hosts are doing an amazing job to keep us connected each week. Thank you also to Ste Anders who continues to develop his production and editing skills to bring us excellent online services each week. You are all such a blessing to us.

As a family we have enjoyed a holiday in Wales and are now looking forward to being able to see more of you and hopefully begin to gather together again very soon.

Many Thanks

We arrived home from Holidays to a huge number of cards and gifts from our church family for our Silver Wedding Anniversary. Tash and I were overwhelmed and a little emotional at the love and generosity shown by you. We would like to thank you all for your greetings, messages, cards and gifts. You are an amazing family to be part of and we love each one of you.

Survey & group gatherings

Thank you for the excellent response to our survey. We are now praying, listening to God and considering the responses we have received. We will soon make an announcement with our options for our next steps post lockdown.

Great to see more Reach groups beginning and zoom gatherings becoming more regular as we look to gather together. If God is speaking to your group or you have a greeting for the church from your group please send us a video, we would love to hear from you all. To start or join a reach group or to book your reach group gathering in church please follow the link below.

Reach

Live Streaming

We have begun to purchase our live streaming equipment in preparation for the coming season post lockdown. Thank you for giving into this evangelistic opportunity as we purchase new equipment to stream the good news of Jesus online. If you would still like to give there is time to do so. To give online please use the reference “stream” For physical offerings place them in an envelope marked “Stream” .

We are now looking to recruit a team of volunteers to help with the technology and a team of online pastors to minister to those connecting. If you feel this is something God is calling you to then please contact us.

Blessing

Philippians 1:3

I thank my God every time I remember you “

This week has been such a blessing and this verse sums up perfectly our thoughts and feelings. Paul send this greeting to the Philippians and for us it is what we have been doing as we think of you all. We thank our God for a wonderful church family and we also speak blessing over you.

“The Lord bless you and keep you;  the Lord make his face shine on you and be gracious to you; the Lord turn his face toward you and give you peace.”

Love & Blessings

Craig
