I don’t know about you but I am so thankful that we have a God who gives us second chances and more. In the charity GROW , which our son runs and many of you have supported through sponsoring Rob in the Zip Wire challenge, it is all about giving young people another opportunity. Sometimes they have made mistakes, sometimes they have been unwell or maybe life has dealt them an unkind start. This is their opportunity to feel valued and helped to make their future more positive than their present and past. Many of them have grasped this, with the continued support of the charity.
I suspect all of us have been so thankful and grateful to God for his forgiveness and that knowledge that He doesn’t give up on us. In Lamentations Chapter 3 Verses 22-23 it says: ‘’The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases, his mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning; great is your faithfulness.’
At the Tuesday Fellowship in May we had a lady speak to us about Mercy Ships. What a great charity; a very inspirational talk. This was followed, a couple of weeks later, with a humorous talk on the History of Nursery Rhymes. On June 11th we have a Bring and Buy Stall and a Cream Tea. As you can see we have a wide variety of talks and events. Please do join us, see what interests you and come along.
On 15th June, we invite all the Church to come to our home and garden any time from 12-5pm for drinks, food, great company and some music. Everyone is welcome.
Later in the year we are, as part of our Outreach, having a meal at Giovanni’s restaurant and Paul Jones (of Manfred Mann), and his wife Fiona Hendley will be coming along to speak and sing. This will be a wonderful opportunity to invite friends and family. More information to follow in the coming months.
Tuesday lunches are so much appreciated by those who come along, but we need an extra cook on our rota, if you are interested please speak to myself or Amanda, training can be given. Also if anyone who can help with preparing veg or washing up we would be most grateful.
So much pastoral work happens through Tuesday Fellowship and lunches, as well as our home groups and the visits Rob, myself and other pastoral visitors do. As ever a huge thank you to all the volunteers who help in so many ways to support the Community and Church Pastoral work at KMC.
