The Inside Column 21/6

Good morning and a warm welcome to all. If you are visiting with us we would love to get to know you. Please feel free to stay for a hot drink after the service.

This morning we have Andrew Burgess the Dean of Bishopdale Theological Collage with us. I asked Andrew to speak from Romans 9,10,11 and he didn’t even blink a eye lid about taking on such a big challenge, which shows that he is mad or that he is a very gifted Theologian –  you can decide!

The Quiz night is this Friday night, if you have been meaning to get you tickets there will be someone out in the foyer this morning with tickets, even if you pay for them on the night of the quiz it would be helpful for  us to know how many teams are coming. Should be a good night and it’s not too late to get a team in.

Speaking of good nights, last Friday night Jonathan and our youth, run and organized the Op-shop ball as a fundraiser for their sponsored child. By all accounts it was a great night with about 60-70 youth all having a great time in the church, that was fully decked out with disco ball and smoke machine. Can’t wait to see the photos.

For the Diary…On Sunday 26 July at 5.30pm we are planning the start of the Alpha Course. The Alpha Course is an evangelistic course which seeks to introduce the basics of the Christian faith through a series of talks and discussions. It is described as “an opportunity to explore the meaning of life”.

I’m sure that most of you have heard of the Alpha Course. The question I’m asking each and every one of us is; Is there someone you know that you could bring on the course? Could we all start to pray for this course start to pray for the person you know that you would like to bring? I would love this to be something of a high point for us as a church this year.

What would the church look like filled with several groups of people all  exploring the meaning of life, asking questions about faith, and then having the opportunity to meet with the one true and living God.  Invitation cards and course information will be available soon.

 

Have a great week

Yours in Christ

Phil
