Summer 2016 Update

Lord, for the years your love has kept and guided,
urged and inspired us, cheered us on our way,
sought us and saved us, pardoned and provided:
Lord for the years, we bring our thanks today.
Lord, for that word, the word of life which fires us,
speaks to our hearts and sets our souls ablaze,
teaches and trains, rebukes us and inspires us:
Lord of the word, receive your people's praise.

Lord, for our land in this our generation,
spirits oppressed by pleasure, wealth and care:
for young and old, for commonwealth and nation,
Lord of our land, be pleased to hear our prayer.

Lord, for our world where men disown and doubt you,
loveless in strength, and comfortless in pain,
hungry and helpless, lost indeed without you:
Lord of the world, we pray that Christ may reign.

Lord for ourselves; in living power remake us-
self on the cross, and Christ upon the throne,
past put behind us, for the future take us:
Lord of our lives, to live for Christ alone.

Timothy Dudley Smith

Great is your faithfulness

Lamentations 3:23

Your love, O LORD reaches to the heavers, your faithfulness to the skies.

Psalm 36:5



Faithfulness

When we look at the life of the Apostle Paul there is so much to consider. There is the remarkable conversion experience on the road to Damascus. On his way to persecute Christians he is confronted by the Lord Jesus Christ. A life changing encounter as he himself becomes a believer in Jesus. It had a huge impact on the proclamation of the gospel many coming to faith in Christ through his preaching in many places. The letters of Paul are well written and expound important God breathed truth for Christians and churches. Prayer was also vital for Paul as he had a huge list of people that he prayed for. It is one of the characteristics of Paul that he continued to pray regularly for people. This is a good example for us to follow, to pray constantly and consistently.

Camp Correspondent

Camp 2016 is finally here, going again to Cumbria, on the 4th to 8th of July with a full programme organised for all the campers. Please pray for safety, good behavior and of course the weather! Most important are the services and devotions and we can pray for all the campers to be challenged by Iain's message. Camp Sunday is the 28th August which will be a good opportunity to look back and invite campers and parents to the church.

Pray for the Summer Camp 4th 8th July

Sunday school

The prizegiving Sunday last month went well and enjoyed by those who came along. The speaker this year was Phil Beattie, who gave a challenging gospel message. The strawberry tea that we had in the cafe was also appreciated. It was good to welcome children, parents and friends to the service.

Summer Sunday school begins this month with the theme this year, guardians of ancora. The programme will include a DVD clip, talk, memory verse, worksheets and food!

Mission Focus

Mission Focus looked at the events and activities Christians attend or are involved in during the summer. Mark gave a presentation looking at summer missions from; GLO teams in the UK and across Europe, the Open Air Mission and a favourite of children the United Beach Missions at the coastal resorts in Britain as well as in Europe. Summer camp work was looked at, a great source of blessing over many years. Then finally there were the Bible Teaching Conventions, held in places throughout the country, Keswick, Portstewart, Edinburgh and Cornwall.

Summer Services

The Joint Bible Teaching Services commenced in June at Bethany then we will be at Kilnside in July and be at Renfrew in August.

Let us hold unswervingly to the hope we profess,
for he who promised is faithful.
