We held our Annual Summer Praise Event on Saturday 21st July. A wonderful night for all of worship praise food and fellowship. Thank you for all who supported this event. A church full of people worshipping our awesome God.
2 Thessalonians 3:5 NKJV. Now may the Lord direct your hearts into the love of God and into the patience of Christ.
We are holding our first Alpha Course, commencing on the 5th of September starting at 6 o clock. We are delighted to be able to commence this course as part of our outreach. If you know anyone who would like to come, first ask them and bring them along with you. The sessions will begin with food and then discussions. The first session will be "Is there more to life than this.". In this session we will be discussing, what does Christianity have to do with life today? What Am I doing on earth? What is the point of life and where am I heading?
Lindsey and I had the pleasure of attending our 4th WRU conference at Swanick in Derbyshire. We had a wonderful time meeting with great friends from throughout the churches of the union.
We were privileged to lead worship on the Monday evening segment, leading to Colin Braithwaite's induction as the new president.
There were some excellent sessions at conference including the business, and teaching. Colin's address was about what does Church look like, and it was very revealing and challenging.
Lindsey and I were accepted onto the General Committee and were also selected for the Overseas Missions and Home Missions sub-committees, respectively. We are so looking forward to being involved in these committees and weare excited to learn of what has bee achieved in the past and also what we can bring in the future.
The times of worship were wonderful, prayer groups were powerful, and fellowship wonderful too. We thank Almighty God, that we are part of this excellent Union of Churches.
We had the pleasure of welcoming Colin Braithwaite, the New President of the Wesleyan Reform Union to our church on the 22nd of July 2018. Colin Braithwaite who retired as the General Secretary of the Union two years ago is the new Union President. We enjoyed his visit, and enjoyed that which he shard at conference, about what does the church look like?
Our Mission House, of 73 North Seaton Road, the annexe to the church has now been completed.
We are using the building for a variety of things such as a Christian retreat, where specific programmes can be tailored for each group of people staying. Examples of the type of programmes we will be delivering, will be Leading Worship, Prayer, and a wide range of other Christian Programmes.
While staying here visitors can use it to be simply a place of rest, meditation and prayer, or take part in the church programmes, or take part in a specially designed retreat bespoke programme.
We will also be using the venue for Debt Management, helping those in need, as well as music lessons, job searching and basic IT programmes.
We are very excited about this development, and if you require any further information, please contact us either by email or by telephone on 07879253072 or 07854 820012. The cost for staying here is £30.00 per night. Donations are also welcome.
Our Friday Diner at church is on the last Friday of every month from 12:00 till 2:00pm. Soup and sandwiches and a range of other hot meals will be available for each of the coming months. This is an outreach for those who may be lonely, or who maybe are just in need of company. There is no charge for the food but donations are welcomed. All donations from this monthly event go to Arab World Ministries Yemen
Once again this year it was a great priviledge for our rapidly growing Church Family to witness yet another baptism. Gordon gave his life to Jesus in July earlier this year and he went through the waters of baptism at Bedlington Trinity Church. A fantastic time was had by all and we truly rejoice that his life is now heading in a new Holy Spirit filled direction.
Jesus Christ is the same today, yesterday and forever
This is not just breaking news, it is the news from yesterday, today and tomorrow and guess what? It is forever. Hallelujah!!!!!
