The President's Desk

This weekend, on our World Mission Sunday, we celebrate and reflect on our part in the mission of the Church. I commend this year’s MCI World Mission Partnership leaflet to you and the accompanying appeal – and thank those who prepared it. Over 3billion people have not yet heard the gospel - you and I have work to do, in partnership with others, to change that tragic situation. Your earnest praying will help. Your generous giving will help. But what else might The Lord be calling you to do? Moses was an older man when called to lead the Israelites out of Egypt. Samuel was only a boy when he realised God’s call on his life. Mary was a young woman when she submitted to God’s will for her. Neither age nor lack of experience are barriers. Winsomeness, willingness, and wholeheartedness are what’s needed. Bill Borden felt God wanted him to mission but died on his way to China in obedience to that call. In his Bible was written “No Reserve. No Retreat. No Regret.” Be inspired. Be involved. Be obedient. Bring glory to God. #God is our Adventure. Every blessing.

Connect Groups

As we move towards the spring, why not consider joining one of our Connect Groups? These are small groups (often meeting in homes) designed to promote spiritual growth, pastoral care for each other and some form of outreach to the wider community. These groups are fantastic ways to get to know other members of the church and build a network of confidential support. A list of the current groups is displayed on the poster in the Link Area, or please speak to one of the Society Stewards if you need further information.
