Good morning and a warm welcome to all.

The wedding I attended last weekend on D’Urville Island was a great success even though when we woke up on Saturday morning with the weather was trying to blow the houses down. The wedding itself was put back a couple of hours as we waited for the power to come back on. Then the wind died down, the sun come out and we all enjoyed lots of seafood and good times.

Many people have been asking me when we will be having a farewell celebration for Edrick and family. On the first of April we will be having a combined service at 10.00am followed by a  ‘bring a plate’ shared lunch.

This will be a chance for us as a family to pray for Edrick and to thank him for his time here at St Barnabas. If you would like to make a donation towards a present for Edrick you can bring it to the offices. Please put this date on our calendar and make every effort to come to this services.

The Banquet in the garden fundraiser was last night, and I have no doubt that it was a huge success. This will have been the sixth Banquet that the Monday morning womens Home Group has put on. Over the years they have raised over twenty thousand dollars for different charities, an amazing achievement, this is truly the church being salt and light in a dark world, well done, we applaud you.

 

“Satan trembles when he sees the weakest Christian on his knees.”  

– William Cowper

 

This week’s spiritual discipline is Prayer. If you are a committed member of this church, can I ask that you make every effort to make it to the prayer meeting on Tuesdays at 6.30am. This I believe is the most important meeting as we go through the transition time and re-envisioning.

 

Yours in Christ
