Jesus said ‘go and make disciples of all nations, baptising them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.’ (Matthew 28:19-20, NIV)
What is our purpose as a church? Why do we do what we do? What are our plan for the future? This Sunday is our Vision Sunday, and we’re going to spend time looking at our purpose as a church, our vision for 2025, and our plans for the future - I really hope that you can join us as we do that.
I hope that this email is useful, and that you are able to spend a few minutes at noon each day, as we pray together as a church family. Please do keep sending your prayer suggestions to me, so that we can make sure we are praying around the needs, burdens and encouragements of our whole church family.
Lord, do not forsake me; do not be far from me, my God. Come quickly to help me, my Lord and my Saviour. (Psalm 38:21-22, NIV))
Where do we look when things go wrong? When school is horrid, work is hard, or life just seems unfair - where do we turn for help? What about when we are the ones who have messed up? Where to we go for help then? The answer from the psalm is to appeal to God for help.
