New Prayer Trail:
Over the past two years many people have followed the Elm Ridge Prayer Trail (based on the Lord's Prayer) around the grounds. This has now been renewed and refreshed and a new Prayer Trail will be unveiled on Sunday 11th August.
The Apostle Paul wrote letters of encouragement to the early Christian Church, and in his letter to the churches of Galatia, which is in modern-day Turkey, he listed the 'Fruits of the Spirit'. It is Paul's list that forms the basis of the new Prayer Trail.
Please feel free to call in at any time, pick up leaflet at the start of the Trail on the drive, and follow the directions around the grounds There are nine Prayer Stations, and it is suggested that as each Prayer Station is reached you pause for a while, take in your surroundings, and ponder upon the reflections provided, spending time with God.
'But the fruit of the Spirit is love joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control' — Galatians 5:22-23.
On 14th July the Rev. Richard Andrew dedicated our new Banner during the morning service.
The new banner has been created over a period of 2 ½ years by a small team of ladies ably led, taught, co-erced, encouraged and inspired by Susanne Davison.
In 1 Peter 4, verse 10, it is written: "Each one should use whatever gift he has received to serve others, faithfully administering God's grace in its various forms."
In working on the banner, which represents Christ's Passion, the members of the team concerned have used every stitch as an expression of their faith and their love of their Lord. By using their God-given gifts (or talents) in this way we believe that a three-fold legacy is being left:
�€� People can benefit from the use of those gifts
�€� Lives may be changed because of the use of those gifts
�€� Use of the gifts will leave a lasting impression on people
Anyone who would like to see the new banner please pop in — we would love to see you.
