Quote of the week I sought to hear the voice of God, and climbed the topmost steeple, but God declared “Go down again, I dwell among the people” (Cardinal Newman).

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

EBA: Winter Gardens Baptist Church. The minister there is Revd Fiona Heddle, a recent addition to the EBA Council. The church is set on a housing estate in the Winter Gardens ward, part of which is an area of high deprivation and health inequality. It is small and friendly but growing in depth and number. It is currently supported through Home Mission. Apart from a Sunday morning service we run a Knitting Circle group, fortnightly Small Groups and regular meetings for those interested in exploring the Christian faith. We have just established a partnership with Winter Gardens Academy primary school. 

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