Thank you to those who have been praying for the participants. Please pray that they will go on growing in knowledge and commitment.

Lunch on Christmas Day The church is providing a meal on Christmas Day for any who will be alone. If you know anyone who would like to come please let Terry or Elizabeth know. We can provide some transport.

Quote of the Week A God of Love only makes sense if He has given us the ability freely to choose Him or reject Him” (Justin Brierly)

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

EBA: North Springfield Baptist Church on the north edge of Chelmsford is the closest evangelical church to twelve thousand people. Its Minister is Revd Peter Thomas. Over recent years the church has grown from around 20 adults to over 50 adults and 20 children of a dozen different nationalities. New folk have been drawn in by the warm welcome, relevant Bible teaching and lively worship in our two services every Sunday and by the midweek programme. Two Toddler Groups have contact with more than 70 families.

Adopt-a-Road: We are praying for the residents of Linden Road & The Sandlings this week.
