Bible Reading


那時,亞瑪力人來在利非訂,和以色列人爭戰。 摩西約書亞說:「你為我們選出人來,出去和亞瑪力人爭戰。明天我手裡要拿著神的杖,站在山頂上。」 10 於是約書亞照著摩西對他所說的話行,和亞瑪力人爭戰。摩西亞倫戶珥都上了山頂。 11 摩西何時舉手,以色列人就得勝;何時垂手,亞瑪力人就得勝。 12 摩西的手發沉,他們就搬石頭來,放在他以下,他就坐在上面。亞倫戶珥扶著他的手,一個在這邊,一個在那邊,他的手就穩住,直到日落的時候。 13 約書亞用刀殺了亞瑪力王和他的百姓。 14 耶和華對摩西說:「我要將亞瑪力的名號從天下全然塗抹了,你要將這話寫在書上做紀念,又念給約書亞聽。」 15 摩西築了一座壇,起名叫耶和華尼西[c], 16 又說:「耶和華已經起了誓,必世世代代和亞瑪力人爭戰。」

ANNUAL CHURCH FÊTE          Saturday 28 September 2024

We plan to hold the autumn fête this year on Saturday 28 September 2024. So we are asking you to ‘clear out your clutter’ and donate pre-loved items to the fête. The annual fête hosts stalls with lots of pre-loved items, large and small, cakes and other treats along with outdoor activities for our younger visitors. There will also be the usual treat of a lovely afternoon tea. We are hoping for a good team of volunteers to help with the many aspects of the day.

Whether you can help donate goods, make jam or cakes, assist with set up, help on the day…. the opportunities are wide and varied. We hope to be able to start gathering donations soon……….so please use this as an opportunity to declutter the house, the garage and the garden shed. You can leave your donations on the stage of the St John’s Hall or if you need help with bringing your donations to the church please contact Heather or Austin on 07751 574964.

Let your friends, family, neighbours and work colleagues know of the opportunity to donate goods and within reason, we can accept most items, even small items of furniture. We can’t accept electrical goods. More information will be issued nearer the time but please put the date in your diary and it will be a great opportunity to meet up and spend time with friends.

Thank you Heather & Austin
