This Sunday Paul and Priscilla Reid are going to be speaking in our morning meetings, with Paul preaching in Bracknell at 9am and 11am, and Priscilla preaching in Sandhurst at 10am. They actually get here today (Thursday), speaking to the Academy students on Thursday afternoon, meeting with the elders on Thursday evening and spending time with the staff team on Friday. Liam Parker is speaking at the 6pm on Sunday, so why not plan to come out twice on Sunday.
Paul and Priscilla started a house church in 1981 which eventually became Christian Fellowship Church in Belfast, Ireland. They recently handed over leadership of the church to a great guy called Andrew McCourt, and now enjoy travelling round the world encouraging and helping building churches like ours, as well as spending time with their ever growing number of grandchildren!
Catrina and I have had the privilege of getting to know Paul and Priscilla over the last two years, as they help host the ONE event which I've spoken at. They have an infectious love of God, of people and of life and I know we're going to enjoy and appreciate having them with us.
Just to add that they come in the middle of a couple of weeks of many different people visiting us. Saulius and Sanna from Lithuania have been here all week, James Emery White from Charlotte in the States was meeting with some of the staff on Wednesday and a group of pastors I've gathered on Thursday, Russ Kline from Virginia in the States was leading Wednesday nights prayer meeting, we've got a group of Estonian church leaders coming on Friday and some more pastors from Serbia arriving in the middle of next week. Never a dull moment!
Hope you're having a blessed week,
