Dear friends,

As we see the new shoots sprouting up – the snowdrops are coming out, we know spring is coming, just as we know fresh hope is coming during this present time – and, of course, we are reminded that Jesus is coming again, so one more day closer to that glorious day.

With no live services for January on Sundays we are back to online alone; some of you regularly take part by recording readings or prayers, and sometimes it is good to hear a concise testimony from someone who can share something God has shown them during these times. Has God shown you something particularly that you think would help someone else? Let us know and we may slot in a 3-4 minute faith-sharing in a future online service.

Sunday’s services: link for David TBc – on the website later…

Link for Stephen:

“Lord we pray for your hand to stem the spread of this virus, to uphold those in the NHS at the forefront of helping those so ill with so many sicknesses and unable to treat everyone: grant them Your peace in their tears of frustration, Your presence in the stresses of coping for so many sick people, for dying grace for the dying, for healing grace for the living, and for all to put their trust in You as there is no one else to turn to, in Jesus name, Amen.”

We pray for God’s blessing on you all as well that we may keep fit, mentally and physically alert and well, and for us to recognise our ministries of encouragement to others.

Prayers for you all,

Every blessing

David and Stephen
