There is also a newspaper from MSF (Doctors without Borders) dealing with the Rohingya Crisis: 600,000 refugees living in squalid conditions.

Quote of the Week I am challenged by my God-given mandate to steward the Earth and care for it more seriously. This isn't just an environmental issue, it is a discipleship issue.” (Lynn Green, General Secretary of the B.U.)

Prayer: Here are some of the things our fellowship will be praying about this week.

EBA: Hawkwell Baptist Church is a busy family church in Rochford, Essex. As well as its regular midweek activities, it also runs ‘Faith, Hope & Charity’; a shop in town which also provides hot drinks and a safe place for visitors to encounter community. The church is pastored by Revd Richard Iles, who leads a team which includes a community worker and office manager.


Adopt-a-Road: We are praying for the residents of Fairfield Road this week.

Personal: Ivy in Aldringham Court

Jenny Mullan still finding it difficult to settle in her new home in Ipswich.

Sheila Everett who has still not fully recovered.

Dave who has a hospital appointment on Tuesday.

Graham Baird who has had a fall in the High Street and broken his kneecap.

Thank God that Den and Jason are almost back to full strength.
