The Inside Column 16/10

Good morning and a very warm welcome to you. We invite you to join us after the service for a hot drink and fellowship.

Today we have Ruth Ellena from St Stephens speaking to us. Ruth will be speaking to us about God’s Heart for Refugees. We are at the moment working our way through the fruits of the spirit, and this week we are looking at Kindness and Goodness. These two things speak about God’s Goodness in us that leads as to showing Kindness to others, and one of the ways we are called to show kindness is to care for the stranger among us.

34 ‘Then the King will say to those on his right, “Come, you who are blessed by my Father; take your inheritance, the kingdom prepared for you since the creation of the world. 35 For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, 36 I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was ill and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.” 37 ‘Then the righteous will answer him, “Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you something to drink?38 When did we see you a stranger and invite you in, or needing clothes and clothe you? 39 When did we see you ill or in prison and go to visit you?”
- Matthew 25: 34-38

The church fair is only a couple of weeks away, have you sighed up to help on the day? We are still looking for people and goods. We need:

  • help to set up and pack down
  • cakes and slices
  • sweets
  • food items for the grocery hamper
  • white elephant goods

The cake baking competition is on again this year – who will take out the tittle this year?

The church fair is one of the ways we get to invite the community into our church. It’s more than just making some money, we want to be able to bless them.

Please pray that everyone that comes to the fair will sense the love of God in this place.

Yours in Christ

Phil
