January 2020 Newsletter

A People Fully Alive ,

Restored, Resourced, Released

Isaiah 61: 1-3, John 10:10

We welcome you to our Service where we gather together not as those who have our lives perfectly sussed out, but as fellow pilgrims on a journey. We meet to acknowledge God’s power through the Holy Spirit in our lives, to celebrate and to affirm that we are not our own – we belong to God and belong to one another because of the redeeming work of Jesus Christ.

Aussie Bushfires  – We pray for improved weather throughout Australia  to bring an end to the horrific fires happening  there. May God protect  the people, homes and  animals  living in the affected areas.

I said to the man who stood at the gate of the year,

“Give me a light that I may tread safely into the unknown.”

And he replied, “Go out into the darkness, and put your hand into the hand of God.

That shall be to you better than light, and safer than a known way.”   Author Minnie Haskins.
