Dear brothers and sisters,
“The grace of the Lord Jesus be with God’s people. Amen.”
This is the Bible’s very last sentence! (Revelation 22:21) What a wonderful final word. The very last thing God wanted to remind his people was – Jesus gives grace. What is grace? “Grace is the free, unmerited favour of God, working powerfully on the mind and heart to change lives.” (Timothy Keller). However weak, vulnerable or let down we feel at the moment, Jesus says he will always give us grace so we have power to keep going, to plod on, to look up and look out. Hallelujah, what a Saviour!
With love and prayers,
LENT PRAYER GATHERINGS
Our 30-minute Lent Prayers continue Saturday 4.30pm, Tuesday 9am (yes, AM) and Thursday 8pm (the same times each week until Easter). If you’ve never prayed with other people before, this is a great way to have a go. Come and pray however you’re comfortable – out loud or silently. Someone will lead each occasion and suggest things to pray for. Drop in whenever you can!

LIFE TOGETHER QUESTIONS
A couple of weeks ago we shared some of people’s questions coming into our series on Life Together: Ethnicity, Church and the Gospel. It’s important that together we can address such questions specifically – this is being thought through and we will tell as soon as we can about how we will do that. If you have more questions you’d like to raise, please do so through the online form here. https://forms.gle/H7dhcNs8ePCXWtwy7
Distribution days are Tuesdays 2pm – 4.30pm and Saturdays 10am – 12.30pm. Please do keep spreading the word to anyone who may be in need.
