Thought For The Week 3 November 2019

Well, we’re not quite into Advent yet, but the Warehouse already has its Christmas decorations on sale. Even in the church we are busy making plans for Christmas and the summer beyond.

How did we get this far through the year so quickly?  I’d like a recount!

I have two exciting pieces of news for you on those fronts,

First, our very own Jo Chang has bravely volunteered to step into Catherine’s shoes and coordinate our Christmas Holiday Programme.  It’s great to have you aboard, Jo!  This means that the Holiday Programme can go ahead on Wednesday 18 and Thursday 19 December.  If you’re interested in helping out, we’re having a get together at the Manse, 347 Wai-iti Road at 11am this Wednesday, 6 November.  Anyone who has ideas to contribute is welcome to join us.

The other piece of exciting news is about our summer series.  The theme will be “Making Space”.  God is always on the move, making space for us in His life through His grace.  How do we make space for God in our lives?  How do we make space for each other? How do we make space to grow in our faith and discipleship?  Brent and I will both be contributing to this series that runs from 29 December – 26 January, but there is also room for others to contribute.  Have you got something to share?  Has God placed something on your heart about making space?  Chat to Brent or myself and we’ll see how we can make space for one another.
