Our evening services at All Saints’ resumed at 6.30. We have 5 evening services before Lent and are taking the opportunity to reflect on Nehemiah together.
Crafty Friday sessions are making Ditty bags in support of Mission to Seafarers in February and we have a variety of visiting speakers throughout the month including Richard Spence, Craig Smith (with his puppets) and Joan Parker on disability Sunday.
New Wine saw a group of 15+ attending from church, Paul and Raewyn have returned from almost a month away in India supporting a mission out there (ask them about their experience over coffee!)
In the spirit of adventure and growth please can I encourage you to try out new things this year. 2014 is the bi-centenary of Christianity in New Zealand – celebrate by being bold. How about a home group, the Drop In Centre or Crafty Friday? In my next article I will up date you about our Lent groups – all opportunities to try something different and see what the Lord has in store for you.
If you fancy hearing what the speakers were like at New Wine in the comfort of your own home, please contact either Hanlie or Rosie for a copy of a talk on DVD. They are available on short term loan to ensure that as many as possible get the chance to listen to them.
