An interview with Holly Adamson on the event of her confirmation: public affirming her great trust in the Lord Jesus.
I am delighted that we will be welcoming the Rev’d Dr Rory Shiner for our public lecture and teaching day at St Bart’s. Last year, we welcomed around 500 people to our public lecture (with around 50% from outside of our church). Please be praying that this year’s public lecture will also be a great opportunity to engage people to explore Christianity. It’s never too early to invite some friends along. Registrations are now open.
Next Sunday we will start a new three-week Winter Warmer Series on REST. There will be hot food between our morning services each week and at 6PM as we explore this amazing gift and and commandment.. So come along (7.30AM, 9.30AM, and 6PM) as we warm up and seek to grow in God’s gift of rest+God, rest+work, and rest+eternity.

“David was greatly distressed because the men were talking of stoning him; each one was bitter in spirit because of his sons and daughters. But David found strength in the Lord his God.” (1 Samuel 30:6)
"But David said to Abishai, “Don’t destroy him! Who can lay a hand on the LORD’S anointed and be guiltless? As surely as the LORD lives,” he said, “the LORD himself will strike him, or his time will come and he will die, or he will go into battle and perish." (1 Samuel 26:9-10)

Today is filled with mixed emotions are we say farewell to the Browne Family! It has been such a great privilege over the past two and a half years to serve our Lord together with the Brownes at St Bart’s. It has also been so encouraging as we’ve witnessed their growth and development, ordinations, and growing family. Please join with me in giving great thanks to God for the Brownes and be sure to join in prayer as they prepare for a new season of ministry in Dalby.
David and the family will be commissioned at Dalby on June 20 at 7PM. Please do come along, as everyone is very welcome to attend. We look forward with great anticipation to hear of how the Lord is at work in and through the family as they move to Dalby!
Give thanks for the BCA organisation which has a vision to take the gospel into areas that for one reason or another have no ministers. Most often isolated towns with dwindling populations. Give thanks for the people who go into those isolated townships to serve with BCA. Living in the towns while preaching the gospel and sharing the love of God. Bless the finances of BCA that will enable them to keep teams in the field. Bless the leadership of BCA with wisdom as the recruit people to serve with BCA and bless them with the wisdom to be good stewards as they administer the finances and direction of the ministry.
"Whatever mission Saul sent him on, David was so successful that Saul gave him a high rank in the army. This pleased all the troops, and Saul’s officers as well. When the men were returning home after David had killed the Philistine, the women came out from all the towns of Israel to meet King Saul with singing and dancing, with joyful songs and with timbrels and lyres" (1 Samuel 18:5-6)
