FELLOWSHIP NEWS AND CONCERNS.  

We were sorry to hear of baby Willow A’s recent bout of illness and pray she will soon be back to robust health. A worrying episode for her new parents.  Other members of the Allen family would also value your prayerful support. Please continue to pray for Joanne M asking for strength and a positive approach to prolonged treatment.

Irene has had a sudden bereavement of a young member of her wider family and we pray for God’s support through the times ahead.

BMS prayer requests.   BMS asks us to pray for 3rd Culture Kids-  missionaries’ children who have spent a significant part of their childhood away from their passport culture.  For REBEKAH, SAM, TABEA AND JOSHUA DREW transitioning  from the life they knew in Nepal to the UK. Pray also for children in UK whose parents are serving overseas. Anna and Jacob Barrell who parents and younger sister are in Mozambique.   Give thanks for teachers at BMS supported schools for mission worker kids in Albania, Bangladesh and Nepal

VISION MEETING – this took place on Sunday Jan 27th at 12.30pm and we would like to thank all who stayed for this meeting and participated. Val has made a good summary of our discussions points and actions needed. Please ask if you have not seen a copy.

Fruits of the Spirit

Followers of Jesus
Respond with love, spread joy.
United
In the Spirit
They foster peace,
Show patience, and don’t annoy.

Others’ burdens bearing
Freely, gladly sharing

They act with kindness
Hold fast to all goodness
Eagerly affirm faithfulness.

Saints act with gentleness and
Practise self-control; they endure
Insults and injuries with
Rejoicing. To be sure,
If you abide in the Spirit,
Then you are free from the law.

Anew

(A meditation on Lamentations 3:22)

The firstborn cry of new life never ceases
Its bright-eyed hope never comes to an end
It is new every morning

The ebb and flow of the tide never ceases
Fresh horizons never come to an end
They are new every morning

The encouragement of the saints never ceases
Their pilgrim song never comes to an end
It is new every morning

The steadfast love of the Lord of the never ceases
His mercies never come to an end
They are new every morning
