Jesus said: "This then is how you should pray: 'Our Father in heaven...' " (Matthew 6v9)
Today, we looked at an alternative venue for our Sunday meetings. Although we're grateful for our current meeting place, we've become more conscious of a couple of challenges. Firstly, the acoustics aren't very suitable for group meetings due to an echo. Secondly, we've realised we need more space for a creche, and potentially a Sunday school.
So today we visited another community centre in Welshpool. I went with Ruth, Charlotte and Charlotte's four children. The facilities were great, and very suitable for meeting and eating.
With better facilities comes a higher rent! This won't stop us hiring the centre if we believe it's the Lord's will for us, but we're conscious it will be another step of faith.
So please pray that we would have wisdom and faith regarding this decision. It seems to be a good thing, and we can see many potential benefits. For example, the room would be prepared for us, and there is sound and video equipment on site. There's a large kitchen there, and we could envisage using the centre when we cook for people on Christmas Day.
Please pray that the Lord will direct us, and that He will provide everything we need to continue in His will.
Thank you for your continued prayers. Praise God from whom all blessings flow!
