I am sure you have enjoyed the change of weather coupled with snow. In all this, I see the power of God over nature.
As we journey through Lent, I want to remind you that “from dust you came and to dust you shall return”. May we offer ourselves to God and ask Him to cleanse us from sin. Our Maundy Thursday service will be at 7.30 pm here at the church and our Good Friday Service will be held jointly with Northfield Methodist Church at our church. May we invite our friends and family to these significant services in our journey of faith.
May God of our mothers and fathers be with you during this year’s mothering Sunday which is on the 19th of March 2023. It is that time of the year when we thank those who have mothered and cared for us from birth up to this juncture. They deserve a thank you .
We continue to pray for all those who are not feeling well and ask God to be with them always.
Do want to be a full member of the church? If yes, please see Becky. Hazel or any of our stewards.
