We thank God that we celebrated church again. Praise the Lord. As you prepare for Church, may I encourage you to reflect on your relationship with Jesus.

We’re celebrating Pentecost Sunday. Traditionally, Pentecost Sunday is considered the birthday of the Church. This is the day that the “bride of Christ” was born. We’ll be looking at the purpose of Pentecost Sunday.

I’m glad to announce that we’re having our YouTube service again (23rd May). Please come and join us as we fellowship “together.”

You can find the Service by clicking HERE.

This is a wonderful time to fellowship together.

Don’t forget these important dates:

1. Our Sunday Summer Visits. Please make an effort to join us—come and stay in community. We still have places available (Sunday the 30th May at 1pm. Please let me know that you can join us, by texting, phoning or emailing me as soon as you can.

2. This Tuesday we’re back at our All Saints Coffee Shop on Zoom at 7:00pm. I’ve enclosed the Zoom invite for you. Everyone is welcome; no agenda—just a visit together to catch up. Please make an effort to join us and stay in community.

3. We’re also back to PUSH Prayer this Thursday at 7:00pm This is where we pray for you and our community. Again, everyone is welcome. You can use the same Zoom invite (which I’ve included below).
