Picnics and Other Stuff

As I write this it's pouring down with rain outside, but I'm hopeful that the weather will improve by Sunday afternoon for our annual picnic at Oakwood Youth Challenge! It's always a great chance to meet up with old friends and make some new ones. There will be face painting for the young children and the chance to do some of the challenges at Oakwood for everyone else. Arrival is any time after 1pm, and you're welcome to invite friends and relatives to come along too.

Lee Layton-Matthews is preaching in the morning meetings. I'm going to be at Newbold College for a service to celebrate the ministry and retirement of my good friend Brain Meardon, who has so magnificently led the Warfield Churches for many years. Then in the evening we're hosting Creation Ministries showing their film examining the events which influenced Charles Darwin in coming up with his theory of evolution. This is another chance for us to engage with some of the issues we raised when we looked at creation vs evolution in the elephant in the church series.

Hope to catch you at some point over the weekend.
