Meetings

Go For It!

It is always good to have Shirlene’s daughter Sam with us, and also to have Aaron back with us – a second-timer! I led praise and worship, and thank you to Bob and Connie for leading communion. There was testimony, prayer, and various words. We were about to pray for Shirlene’s eye (cataract) when Frank read from Luke 11, about …

Baptised? Filled?

Most of us meet, looking primarily for an encounter with the Lord. He’s in all places at all times, but an encounter changes us, equips us, empowers us. Our meeting yesterday (2/6/24) seemed to me to be such a time. Barry H spoke on ‘times of refreshing’ (Acts 3:19), emphasising how the Lord comes in waves of his Spirit to …

Thank you, Marcus!

It was good to have Marcus and Lesley Philpott with us this morning. We are always blessed through the ministry of Marcus, and this morning was no exception. Around 15 gathered, with Bob leading in praise and worship. Thank you to those who shared scriptures (Michelle, Barry H, and Frank), a word of encouragement (Cliff), testimony (Bob) a prophetic word …

Small

I love a large meeting, where numbers mean loudness, but the smaller meeting can be no less of a blessing. Some of our regulars are elderly, and more likely to be unwell, whereas the younger ones have recently been having problems with their vehicles. And Norwich City had an important match today. Small meeting! We praised and worshipped, led by …

Contrasts!

Last Sunday, 28th April, guest speaker David Adams, preached a storm, and Wendy cooked a lunch to match! There were around 20 present. It was so good to see Nick (he works long hours) and Craig was probably a third-timer. Thank you to Malcolm for testimony and leading communion. And then we made a dash for the car, as we …

Encouraged in the Lord!

We usually start with praise and worship, but Emma phoned us with such severe toothache, for some days, during which she has been unable to get a dentist. So we prayed for her as a fellowship immediately. Michelle’s daughter, Lisa, had lost her Nan during the week, and was understandably in grief, and so we prayed for her too.  Connie …

Coincidences!

Coincidence? You must be joking! It happens time and time again. One is considering sharing a scripture in a meeting, when someone else reads it out. One is considering speaking on a subject, when someone reads the scripture one would start with. Not so long ago, two unrelated people in one of our meetings both shared that they had been …

Faces!

Some old faces returning, some fairly new faces showing up again, and one ‘first time’ new face.  One can tell a lot from a face, and from time to time I look around, and am blessed at faces that radiate joy. With Bob and Connie’s car back on the road, we asked them to lead communion, and I led worship. A …

Fruit!

We love having guests in our meetings. Sometimes they re new (wonderful) and sometimes they are old friends (wonderful). This Sunday it was good to have Sam, Priya and Rovi with us. All old friends! Three people known to a number of us had been to be with the Lord this last week. There were apologies for absence. We started …

Easter!

‘He is risen’ was no doubt resounding around the world, as God’s people celebrated the Easter message. Historically, Jesus rose from the dead, and was seen by a huge number of people.  I love the generosity of  God’s people. Last week, Michelle brought palm crosses and Easter cards. A shame a number of people were not here to receive them. This week, …
