A wonderful outcome of unfailing pastoral care is the story of our friend Rezgar who, just before lock down, was granted right to remain in the UK, and has gone on to get a job, a travel permit, part way towards a driving licence, and, wonderfully, is seeing his Mum for the first time in more than 10 years! These joyous photos will make you smile. Rezgar simply wrote;
Be encouraged – prayer and love transform lives!
We are looking forward to coming together in this new space.
Whether you are a big reader or not, if you just want to explore and discuss together some provocative books on our journeys of grace – this could be for you. The idea of a Christian book club was brought to life by hearing Kate enthusiastically referring to a book called “The ruthless elimination of hurry”. There seemed a rich opportunity to carry on the discussion well after the Sunday sermon slot & chat, so the outline of a book club to explore faith further together was born.
There are some other surprisingly good Christian books out there to enjoy, stimulate us and discuss together.
If you are interested in being part of this, then the launch meeting is on October 7th 7:30 to 9:00 online. Please email Helen if you are interested.
