First to let you know that the Hope08 meeting for the local community leaders on Wednesday night went really well. We had people from all sorts of community organisations there including people from the council, schools, local charities and the press, and the overwhelming response to Hope08 was very positive. Thanks to everyone who either served on the night to make it possible or prayed for the event - very much appreciated.
This Sunday morning we're continuing our series on The Pursuit of Happiness. Comments on week one, "Temporary or Eternal", were very positive so hope you can make it for part two, "Internal or External", either live on Sunday morning or via the podcast.
Also Sunday morning a number of our young people are going to Jubilee Community Church in Maidenhead which is lead by my good friend Stuart Otto to perform their "Everything" drama. Let's be very proud of our young people and all that God is doing through them.
Then Sunday evening our previous Senior Pastor of 43 years, Ben Davis, is going to be speaking on revival. Ben grew up in Wales amongst people who still remembered and were involved in the 1904 Welsh revival so has a unique view on what revival looks like and has a passion to see it again. Come and be inspired as he speaks both this and next Sunday evening.
Finally let's be continuing to pray for Kenya and Zimbabwe, that the peacemakers will win out.
Hope you have a great weekend,
