Church Ministries


For I'm building a people of power
And I'm making a people of praise
That will move through this land by My Spirit
And will glorify My precious name

Build Your church, Lord
Make us strong, Lord
Join our hearts, Lord, through Your Son
Make us one, Lord
In Your Body
In the kingdom of Your Son

In Him you too are being built together

Ephesians 2:20

The church of the living God, the pillar and foundation of truth

1 Timothy 3:15



Meeting Together

The writer of the Hebrews in chapter ten gives a word of encouragement to believers. They are not to give up meeting together, spur each other to love and good deeds, as well as being a support looking forward to the coming of the Lord. This truth is still important today and worthy of applying in our lives, as surely we need the fellowship of other believers. In a world that gives scant regard to God and His Word it is vital that Christians meet regularly and encourage one another, look forward to His return and proclaim the good news of the Lord Jesus Christ.

News

It has been good once to be involved in the Shoe Box Appeal with Samaritan's Purse. A special thank you to Robert McCaig for being the Bethany coordinator and ensuring the safe handover of the twenty one boxes collected. Pray for each box that every child who will ultimately receive their gift on Christmas day that they will be blessed both materially and spiritually.

There is also an opportunity to help Ray and Trixie Keilty in their Christmas appeal as they pass on a gift to the people they minister to in Motherwell.

In August, we welcomed a team of five Christian young women from the church our son Jonathan attends, near Lille. They helped us in tract distribution in our own area of Le Havre, and in other areas where there is no evangelical witness. The only reply from that so far has been from one irate person who posted a tract back to us, along with a note asking us to stop using letter boxes as rubbish bins. The response to personal evangelism using a questionnaire was much more positive. It proved effective among people met on the sea front and in some of the city's parks, with some conversations lasting up to an hour! One of the team members was asked, “If God is good, why is there so much suffering ?” In her bag, she “happened” to have an evangelistic book with exactly that title, and was pleased to give it to the enquirer!

With the church being so small at the moment, we try to be away as little as possible at weekends. Recent activities beyond Le Havre have included Allan giving a talk on “Why read the Bible?” at a Bible exhibition in the seaside resort of Houlgate. Last month he was asked to lead a day of training for elders on the subject of the Lord's supper. A dozen elders from seven Normandy churches were present. Some prayer requests: Renewal of spiritual zeal among the Christians; Christmas outreach: service in French on 23rd December, and an English carol service at a date to be fixed; Conversions among local people and in the families of church members.

They devoted themselves to the apostles teaching and to the fellowship, to the breaking of bread and to prayer.
