I’m happy to announce that we’re having Church@Church this Sunday. This week we’re celebrating All Saints’ Day. Think back of all the great people of God you’ve met, all the great people of God who have ever lived, and all the great people of God who are yet to be born. We thank God for all those who have loved and served Him faithfully. We also take time on Sunday to remember those who have died for the cause of freedom, making sure that the freedoms we enjoy were not lost. My sermon this Sunday is based on John chapter 6, when Jesus feeds a whole lot of people. Come and find out how to face the impossible!
So come, join us as we worship the triune God together. Here’s the announcement:
Church @ Church this Sunday—the 6th November at 10:00am
1. This week we continue Operation Christmas Child. Come and pick up your shoe boxes and we’ll send them all over the world. (Return them by Sunday the 13th November.)
2. For your forward planning: Sunday the 20th November, the Reign of Christ Sunday is a Healing Service. The Rev. Dr. Ed Hird will be preaching on the subject of healing. There will be opportunities to receive healing prayer. Again, everyone is welcome.
3. Our next All Saints Community Lunch is after the service on November the 20th. Everyone welcome.
If you want to see our monthly church schedule, you can find that on our website, or by clicking HERE.
If you have any further questions, or need help in any way, don’t hesitate to contact me.
Thank you Church.
Stay vigilant and prayerful.
Love each other deeply and keep Jesus at the very centre of everything you do.
