With soaring temperatures, the schools having given out their prizes and with many now away on holiday, summer is most definitely here at St Matthew’s! We thank God for all he has been doing in our midst. Here are some of the highlights…..
Over this past term we have enjoyed our descent into the world of Babylon as we have joined Daniel and his friends battling for faith in an alien culture. We ended the series with our second All Age Sunday when Lions were very much in evidence!
Children continue to be a feature here and we have enjoyed welcoming the families and friends for a baptism and a blessing. As well as this our Monday Playgroup, ‘Monday Mums’ continues to be very popular and we are delighted with it.
We are just coming to the end of our first term of ekklesia; our new Wednesday night service. It has been an encouraging start with approximately 20 attending each of our relaxed evenings. We have covered all manner of subjects from tough decisions to creation, to hearing about Christian work on a local estate.
Over the summer we will be thinking about ‘Christian Character’ and then, next term, what it means to be surrounded by ‘a great cloud’ of Christian witnesses.
We trust that you have a great summer and if you are in the area, do join us on Sunday morning or Wednesday evening.
