Dear Church Family
This Sunday is Vision Sunday and I'll be speaking across our services in more detail about the year ahead and how there is much cultivating work that the Lord wants to do in and with us. Please do make sure you've picked up a copy of our Cultivate magazine, or read it online by clicking here. I hope you enjoy it - and don't forget to transfer key dates into your diary.
Between now and Easter every other week on Sundays we'll be focussing on prayer in general and fasting in particular. We began to think about this last Sunday. Don't forget that I set us all a Fasting Habit to Practice for the coming couple of weeks which was: fast one meal (per week) and use the time to pray. If you missed last week's sermon you can catch up online by clicking here.
We're looking forward to welcoming Gillian Shepherd onto our staff team, as she begins working with us on Monday as our new Impact Project Manager. Do look out for her and welcome her. I mentioned Gillian in the recent Impact video update, which, if you missed it, you can watch by clicking here.
Finally, let's not forget our nation and political leaders in our prayers, during these continuing uncertain days as they seek to find a way forward with Brexit. Let's keep praying for a good solution to be found and for great wisdom for those who've been given authority.
