At the moment our children’s’ groups of Sunday mornings are looking at the fruit of the Holy Spirit: Love, Joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. Quite a list, which quite rightly challenges us to consider our behaviour and attitude. What we sometimes forget is that these verses are not just a spur to our moral endeavour, no, they mark out the fruit of the Holy Spirit in us. It is good to remember that this fruitfulness is a gift from God and a sign of God’s presence in us. It comes in a passage in Galatians which talks of the Spirit’s leading and walking in the Spirit. So belonging to Christ and living his way is real effort on our part but first and foremost it is fruitfulness from God in and among us. Something to pray for and encourage.

As you will see in the story above, as a church we have agreed to make two Sunday morning services our regular pattern. That is 9.30am and 10.45am services. On the 3rd Sunday of the month it changes to a breakfast for all at 9.30 and a Communion service at 10.45am.

Also for your prayers, the deadline for application for our new youth role is coming up. We have had some promising interest. Please pray for our search and for those applying.

As we head into summer, the e-newsletter is taking a holiday. So thanks and a break for John Sherbourne.
