We have been looking at God’s faithfulness through August, using the “Remember When” videos from Evangelical Alliance. https://www.eauk.org/what-we-do/initiatives/great-commission/remember-when-resources
These, along with our own testimonies have been a reminder to look back with thankful hearts to when God has done significant things in our lives and through history. Just as the Israelites looked back and remembered God’s providence and recalled it through story and sharing with the next generation. The series has also reminded us that we should look forward in prayerful expectation that God is acting now and bringing His kingdom about and that nothing is impossible for Him
Some verses for September – Psalm 105
Give praise to the LORD, proclaim his name;
make known among the nations what he has done.
2 Sing to him, sing praise to him;
tell of all his wonderful acts.
3 Glory in his holy name;
let the hearts of those who seek the Lord rejoice.
4 Look to the LORD and his strength;
seek his face always.
Services are at church and also available to join on

Love your Church - our current series
God calls us to be "devoted to one another in love" (Romans 12:10). What does this look like for us today? How can we be the kind of church member who makes a real difference?
This timely and engaging book by Tony Merida explores what church is, why being part of it is exciting, and why it’s worthy of our love and commitment. He sets out eight privileges and responsibilities of a church member: to belong, to welcome, to gather, to care, to serve, to honour, to witness and to send.
This is a great book for every churchgoer to read, especially as churches start to meet in person after many months of disruption from Covid-19. Whether you're new to your local church or have been attending for some time, this book will re-energise you with God’s vision for the local church.
A discussion guide at the end of book makes Love Your Church a great resource for reading with other church members.
We have just followed a series based on the book “God’s plan for your wellbeing”, looking at the life of Elijah in 1 Kings ch 17 to 2 Kings 2 ch 2. Much has been said about wellbeing in recent years and this book shows how we can seek God’s Shalom in every area of our lives. Through July we are continuing to look at the life of Elijah.
