Reg NewtonReg Newton gave us an Update about our Prayer Table outside. Reg thanked everyone who has helped at the table past and present. It does have an impact, and is the visible and approachable face of our church. We are called to be in a relationship with God and with others. We began the table at Garston church in 2005, and then here in 2009. Reg then told us about some of the people who came to the table with many different problems. Our prayers have all been answered, but sometimes not in ways that we might have thought. It is rega privilage and a responsibility for us to share in these lives and pray for them. We all have our own trials and can use our experiences to help others. If anyone would like to help outside at the table, then please see Reg.

Hymn 4 – I Then Shall Live
Hymn 5 – Be Still

2015-03-14 Irene Wilson leads Intercessory Prayer-trimmedThe Message was given by Irene Wilson about ‘glory’. The word that has made the greatest impact for Irene in the Bible is Glory. God first spoke to Moses from the midst of the burning bush. Exodus 3:1-6. We read in Exodus 33:11-17 of another time God spoke to Moses. This time Moses asks God for something. “Please show me your Glory”. Verse 18. Job was asked questions by God. Job 38. God knew the hearts of both of these men. Moses wanted to know God better. Have we ever wondered what glory really is? It is God self revealed, his character and being. Exodus 33:19. Moses could not see God’s face. No human can see God’s glory and live. Verses 20-22. It is like looking into the sun, his power is too great. God demonstrated his love and mercy for Moses and let him live. Psalm 19:1 tells us that the heavens declare the glory of God as in a beautiful sunset. We live here in a lovely country and we all want the problems to be solved. We need the hope and glory that one day they will be. In the New Testament, how was glory manifest? John 1:14. Jesus was transfigured on the mountain and they saw his glory. Matthew 17:2-3. Jesus is the brightness of God’s glory. Hebrews 1:3. He who has seen Jesus has seen the father.John 14:9.How can we see this glory now? When we accept Christ, the Holy Spirit will be in us. Colossians 1:27. We can only see a torch light in the dark. We must share our faith boldly and let our light shine.2 Corinthians 3:12. We must do all to the glory of God in our daily lives.

The Final Hymn Mine Eyes have seen the Glory after which the Closing Prayer was given by Sueann Henderson.

Fellowship and Refreshments in the church hall followed the Service.
