At our prayer meeting we were reflecting on God’s goodness to us in the last few weeks over the Easter season.
The Passion For Life venture was a great encouragement – we had several deep and interesting conversations on London Road where there are many passers-by.
People were also invited to take time to read John’s gospel one-to-one for a one hour taster session. As this would be a really big step for anyone to take we were delighted to hear that a handful of people were either lined up to do so, or had already done so.
In addition to all this we were told that one of the youngsters in the church had been asking his parents on his own initiative how he might become a Christian – and did just that!
On Good Friday we had a great time together with our brothers and sisters from Ebenezer Baptist Church (“Ebenezer” carries the meaning “God has helped us so far”), and God also helped us in meeting and hearing his word on Easter Sunday.
Three of our congregation were involved in the Easter Passion Play – and despite rain earlier, God answered our prayers and sent the sunshine for the second performance.
