Wait for the LORD; be strong and take heart and wait for the LORD. Psalm 27:14
Hope you have had a good week.
It was so special to see Sabrina and Matt get married on Wednesday – we pray that they will be really blessed as they begin their married life together.
We also remember those who we know who are struggling – those with Covid, those who are awaiting tests, those who are recovering from surgery and those who are feeling quite low at the moment. We pray for healing and restoration for you all.
Just a reminder that we have a baby box available at church if you would like to place your gifts for baby Amelie. This is the last Sunday for adding your gifts.
A huge thanks to Joe and all the team for their hard efforts in making the youth weekend so special for our young people. We will hear a little about the weekend this Sunday morning and then more in the Youth take over service on 24th October.
Thank you to everyone who has offered to help on Saturday. Please pray for the day.
Lifts to church
We have a few people who need lifts to church each week. Please do prayerfully consider if you might be able to provide lifts for these wonderful ladies and if you can please speak to Andrea.
Just to keep you up to date of where we are with meetings. The elders are meeting with Rev David Sebley, our interim moderator on Monday evening (11th October). On 1st November the elders will meet as normal. On 2nd November the elders and David Sebley will be meeting with the moderator and the chair of the pastoral committee. On Saturday 6th November the elders have an awayday (at church) and will be joined in the morning by those who have served as elders before. On Monday 15th November we will have a church meeting at church starting at 7.30pm to update and discuss the way ahead.
