... and the love of God, and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with us all!
We hear these words often in church, but it's easy to forget how powerful they are. This Sunday was Trinity Sunday, where we focused on these encouraging words from Paul's second letter to the Christians in Corinth. The Trinity can be a confusing idea to think about, but it is an important way for us to understand the different manifestations of God and all that He has done for us. Rev. Eliakim reminded us that we should make sure our whole lives are being supported and "backed up" by the power of the Trinity.
Our worship together continues at 6pm on Wednesdays. This Wednesday's 3D course (at 7pm) is the last in the series.
Two advance dates for your diaries:
Sunday 23rd July - church BBQ after the service, where we eat and celebrate summer together.
Saturday 16th September - international evening! We come together in fellowship to celebrate our diversity and our talents. More details to follow.
On Sunday we had a wonderful celebration of Pentecost, remembering when the early Christians were touched by the power of the Holy Spirit. It is the Holy Spirit that brings us to real life and help us be God's lights in a difficult world. In the face of appalling terrorist attacks in this country and around the world, Rev. Nejib reminded us that by the power of the Holy Spirit we can move beyond our anger and use love to triumph over evil.
To celebrate this, we released red helium balloons over our community of Newtown, attaching snippets of God's Word for those who may find them.
Do join us for more prayer, fellowship and study at 6pm on Wednesday.
