Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.
We recently applied to hire a different venue for our Sunday service. This other venue had several practical benefits when compared to our current meeting place. However, our application was turned down. While this was initially surprising and disappointing, we see it as an answer to our prayers and your's, and find a peace that "surpasses all understanding".
We've therefore embraced the challenge of our current meeting place, and last Sunday we changed several things about the structure of the service. The outcome was very positive, and I was greatly encouraged! We were also grateful for a large family visiting during their holiday in the local area.
We have also decided to change the time of the Sunday meeting, moving it from the afternoon to the morning, beginning this Sunday.
Praise God for His faithfulness, and for the wisdom He is able to provide.
Please pray that God will continue to provide for the practical needs of the church. Pray also that God will help and heal those who are currently unwell.
Thank you for your continued prayers. Praise God from whom all blessings flow!
