An Introduction to Bible Difficulties and Bible Contradictions (from CARM)

The Gospel in Six Minutes

On Tuesday 1st December 2015 at 7.30 pm
we had an update on the work of the

Zambesi Mis
sion from Mike Berry
Mike emphasised the work of Myles and Ruth MacBean, and others,
who are using their skill to help develop the church in Malawi and northern Mozambique . 
Please see if God would have you support this exciting work in prayer, giving or some other way.
In the second half of his presentation Mike spoke from Philippians 1v3-11 & 2v19-29
about Partnership in the Gospel. 
What is partnership?
1—It is prayerful - the Philippians were praying for Paul and he was praying for them.
2—It is personal - Paul knew all about them through Epaphroditus (their messenger).
It is practical - only the Philippians sent a messenger to Paul to help.

On Saturday 27th September 2014 a buffet meal (always a treat)

We welcomed Peter and Mary back for the weekend (their last visit was in 2008)
and they delighted us again with their singing and the encouraging, and challenging, messages from Peter.
Peter is the Pastor of Ty-Isaf Baptist Church near Risca - you must visit if in the area.
Peter and Mary both trained at the Welsh College of Music and Drama, Cardiff, and have
performed as guest soloists with many of the choirs of the South Wales valleys. 
They have also competed and won prizes in many Eisteddfords, including the National Eisteddfod of Wales.
They have travelled extensively throughout England and Wales witnessing for the Lord in song.

OUR 2013 CHURCH ANNIVERSARY 12th & 13th October
This was a most blessed and challenging weekend.  
Our guest speaker, Mike Mellor left us with no excuses for not declaring the good news of Jesus Christ to those we come in contact with day by day.  He encouraged us to reach out with that wonderful message with great confidence in our one and only Saviour.

On Saturday evening we had the additional blessing of Holtwood Mission Band who were concerned not to provide an 'entertainment' but to join with us and assist our worship for the evening, which they did admirably.
