Newsletter, 31 July

Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! In his great mercy he has given us new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead.

Thanks

  • Godfrey and Linda would like to say. "Thank you all for your kindness and help when Godfrey was taken ill during the service on Sunday. We are very grateful for your prayers and messages." Godfrey is awaiting results of tests and is out and about.
  • From Alison Gunderson: "Thank  you to everyone who contributed to my leaving gift.  As well as the card and flowers, which I suppose I expected, I am thrilled with a voucher for glamping, and the cheque which might go for another night or two in a yurt or a shepherd's hut, or even a treehouse! My camping trips have always been in my own tent and fun but not particularly glamorous, so this will be a whole new experience and I'm really excited looking at all the wonderful places I could stay. Thank you all so much, for the gift, and the holiday, and most of all for your friendship and love."
