Happy new year!
The first service of 2011 was at 10-30a.m. on Sunday January 2nd. This was our annual Covenant Service where we renew our promises to God. The service was led by our pastor Jonathan.
Our midweek bible fellowship meetings re-started on Tuesday 4th January. We are holding a short series of studies on the elements: earth, air, fire and water. Specifically we are looking at the significance of these images in the scriptures.Brian started us off with a study on "water".
The church party on Saturday January 15th was a great success, members, friends and preachers and families met for about 2 hours. After complaints that the quizzes were too intellectual at previous parties, we had a quiz about catch phrases. The final catchphrase being: "all people need to be saved, all people can be saved, all people can know that they are saved, all people can know that they are saved to the uttermost." If you don't know who said this, the answer will be given next month!
Susannah led opur bible fellowship on Jan 18th on the theme of "Earth."
The ladies' fellowship met on Jan. 19th and was led by Susannah, our pastor. She brought a quiz, and then the members ate a "bring and share" meal.
Sunday January 23rd was one of our "Fellowship" services when members brought items to contribute to worship. Many brought contributions, and we were surprised at how well they all fitted together (perhaps we shouldn't have been, but we were!)
The church meeting was on Jan 26th, and was very productive. Details of most of the decisions taken are on the website on the "Newsletter" and "Events" pages.
