Saturday 22nd October @ 10am – 4.30pm

This summer, for the first three Sunday’s in August we have our annual intern coming down from the London Theological Seminary. Duncan Sills (on the left in the photo) has just finished his first year, is a keen hockey player and Watford fan and you can hear his first couple of sermons here at his visit recently on the sermon page – I think you’ll find them very helpful.
Today we had the pleasure of a visit from Reuben Mann, who is transitioning from being assistant pastor at Emmanuel Chippenham, to being the lead Church planter of the newly formed Emmanuel, Marlbough. Reuben shared with us about his work and future plans and also brought us a message from Jonah which you can listen to on our sermon finder. It is great to know that the Lord has blessed Marlborough with a new gospel work and we trust it will prosper for the welfare of God’s people there and to the glory of God in Christ.
CAP is about dealing with debt, working out budgets and getting mastery of your finances. The new course we are running is due to demand after the one we ran last year.
The World is a fast changing place these days, especially in the crucial Middle East. Tonight we spent time considering some of those in positions of authority for whom we are told in 1 Timothy 2:2 to pray for, that believers ‘may live peaceful and quiet lives’ – and for ‘people to be saved’. The reality at present is that believers are anything but free to live in peace very often, all the more reason to pray. Here are some of the names of people, friend or foe, and in no particular order, we were mentioning for prayer – List of leaders.
As things seem to be coming to a head – either with Iran over it’s nuclear ambitions, or with Russia in it’s expansionist agenda in Ukraine, or with Israel’s Netanayu up for election after his upcoming controversial speech to the US Congress, the emergence of ISIL, or the need for political stability in countries like Nigeria in sub-Saharan Africa, Christians need to take their place as watchmen and pray.
239 years is a long time. 1775, the year North Bradley Baptist Church was founded, was also the year that the American Revolution began. Much has changed since then on both sides of the pond. But during that time God has been faithful, and he has not changed. Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever. The Christian message remains the best news ever, and is as relevant as ever.
Come and join us on 2nd November at 10.30am and at 6.00pm as we celebrate God’s goodness with our anniversary services. There will be a bring-and-share lunch after the morning service, and all are welcome to join with us.
The leaders of this Area’s FIEC Churches met last night for fellowship and discussion. Here is a short report:
The main issue raised was the suggestion that some Churches with greater resources be nominated as Hubs to which others in the Area could turn for support. In a sense, a soft episcopalianism. Continue reading “Hub Churches”
