Meetings

Flooding!

It is so good to be back in the UK, as much as we love family, and sunshine, and summer, and New Zealand. And we have been looking forward to meeting again, and then on Sunday, it rained hard all night, and in the morning, there was significant flooding on many of the lanes leading to our home. So we …

Thank you!

A GREAT BIG THANK YOU to Shirlene, Malcolm and Moira, and Jonathan and Paige, for so generously hosting Liberty the past few weeks, and to Shirlene for generally organising, and to all who have led meetings, led worship, led communion, spoken, shared gifts, words, etc. We understand that rooms have been rather packed! We really miss you, though worshipping with …

What a Party!

What a party! Well, there were a lot of grandchildren present, having celebrated Christmas and waiting for New Year. The youngest (5) wanted to dance – and so did I. So we did. And one or two others. We have so much to praise Jesus for, and the place shook. Thank you to Bob for leading worship, and Shirlene for …

Carols and Mulled Wine!

‘Come and sing carols with us, Christmas Eve morning, for one hour’, was the invitation handed to friends in the village, and posted on the village notice board. Just over 30 gathered in our sitting room, including several who had not been to any meeting here before. Thank you to Shirlene for organising, those who did readings, Cliff for keyboard …

Set Free!

How good to have Malcolm and Moira back with us, after illness and holidays. Also, Billy and Wendy have virtually finished their home renovation, and were back and participating with us. A number of our people are in need of serious prayer. John and Marcus both have surgery this week, and Wendy S’s daughter at 7am Monday morning.  Michelle had had …

The God Who Reveals Himself!

Last week we had a reasonably full room, at 24. Today, we had breathing space, and around half that number. That’s a characteristic of ‘house church’, especially in the early days – rather tight, or rather empty.  How good to have Jilly and Alan with us, always smiling, and speaking encouraging words before, during, and after the meeting. Connie spoke …

Indescribable!

What an amazing meeting, with a full room (24 people plus 1 dog). Such praise, such worship, such a sense of God’s presence. It was so good to have Jonathan and Paige with us. Also, Sam and her friend Rovi, from London, and first-timers Emma, Craig and Roy.  Many remarked on the gentle worship song from Rovi, which brought even …

Shout!

Looking round the room yesterday morning, and noting that some were not present through illness, or called into hospital where a close friend was not expected to pull through, and others… well, different priorities, or urgent situations, I considered how this would have been a super amazing turnout around 10 years ago! Thank you to Bob for leading us into …

Great Testimonies!

It is always good to have Sam Bhatt with us, when she is staying with Shirlene. And also good to have Barry H back with us following his recent surgery. Connie had had a bad week, but testified about the fact that she prayed for an appointment with her doctor, and even though they usually make people wait a week …

Small!

So many people away – sick, recovering from surgery, in London, family unexpectedly arrived, etc. Such things can pass unnoticed in a larger church, but not in a small fellowship. So we prayed for those absent, and phoned to see if we could help. There was no Bob, so I led praise and worship. Various people offered prayers of praise …
