But those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary they will walk and not faint. Isaiah 40. 31.
We are pleased that you are able to join with us today. If you are on holiday, please take our greetings back to your home church. We are here to worship our risen Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ. The Services both morning and evening will be taken by the team from the United Beach Mission. They are doing a wonderful work on our beaches, and we must continue to pray for them each day. We pray that both the Speakers and the hearers will receive a blessing from the Lord.

Chat to people. Help with coffee/teas, washing up, even drying a few cups. A really important thing is to encourage and support everyone by your presence.
