I don't know about you but I am loving the sunshine, the warmth and the lack of winter.
The past week has really begun to feel like Spring and I am loving every part of it.
This weekend we packed a lot into one short Sunday. Don't we ever!
The past two weeks have seen around 15 student girls gathering for breakfast at 'spoons, before heading to the 11.30am service. This week the bar man asked who we were and where we were going. Our regular presence had been noted, and it gave George and opportunity to share a little about Citygate. Shock that a lively bunch were heading to church, was fairly clear to see!
Guy Miller spoke on Sunday, continuing our series on Romans 4 and sharing once again the importance of knowing that we are justified by faith, and not by works.
Lunch took us to O'Neill's in Lansdowne, and some tasty grub kept us entertained for a few hours. Many people had lots to do so people headed off, and gathered in the evening for Why Jesus, Why Citygate and of course, a trip to the Lynton Court Pub.
A chilled Sunday, but full of fellowship and the chance to get to know one another better. Pretty perfect if you ask me, especially when you throw a bucket load of sunshine into the mix.
This week you can look forward to:
- Tea in the Park for all you ladies.- Cream tea in Bournemouth Gardens on Saturday afternoon so we can enjoy the scenery and the company of one another.
- Five Smooth Stones- A night of worship prayer and reflection at 7.30pm in St Swithuns
- Sunday services at 9.30am and 11.30am
- Nando's Student Lunch
- Why Citygate PART 2- Remember to get along and finish the course
- Pub Social
With so much to do, I look forward to seeing everyone over the weekend.
I was sent a nice email this morning reminding me of the importance of unity. I'd love to see each of you united and looking after one another, welcoming those who are new, and speaking truth and wisdom into the lives of your close friends.
Floss reminded me of these great U2 lyrics
You got to do what you should
With each other
But we're not the same
We get to
Carry each other
Carry each other
And so, with that in mind, have a great week, keep your eyes open for what God might have you do and remember to 'carry each other'.
