Calling notice for special General Church Meeting. At the recent Circuit Meeting, held on the 27th Feb, there was lengthy discussion about the financial responsibility of local churches towards the Ministry of the Circuit. The outcome of the discussion has led to the need for a special general church meeting to be held at Bible Christian. There is a Church Council meeting on the 26th March at 7pm. The first half-hour of the meeting will be a special General Church Meeting. It is an open meeting at which all who are part of Bible Christian may attend so as to discuss the future of the Church. This meeting will be attended by the Superintendent of the Circuit.
Please continue to pray for Edward Jenkyn, he is still in hospital, but although better than he was, is still quite poorly. He is a bit depressed, and is not eating well, but the Consultant is optimistic! Leah has had her heart operation, but still has a way to go. Jimmy Barber is now back at the home in Camborne, but still needs much prayer. All of these people need our prayers!. There are still many in our Fellowship to pray for. Claire is still going on steadily, and after a heart scan the Consultant was very pleased, and we can give thanks for that. Please remember Mary Parsons, Ted and Margaret Allford, Margaret and David Stratton and Vera Care. Also pray for Allie Bygrave and Iris Bidgood as well as Joshua Peters. Doreen has not been very well, and would be glad of our prayers. Pray without ceasing! The list of those to pray for seems to get longer each week. We can thank the Lord that we are well and able to pray for others not so fortunate! Our prayers are with Maurice and Trish and the family at this sad time and pray they will have safe journeys home from Cumbria in the coming days. Also our prayers are for Joan Watkins, whose husband Ron passed away on Tuesday morning. We pray for her and the family at this sad time.
There are many Evangelical Alliance magazines in the foyer. Please take one – they are of great interest.
