Speer Road Church
(United Reformed Church)
The Last Word
I would like to begin by offering a huge thank you to Chris Stuart for her work with Messy Church over nearly four years. Thanks also to all the helpers that have made it possible. It has been great to see children in our church on those Sunday afternoons enjoying themselves with various craft activities, worshipping and sharing food together, and has definitely brought an extra dimension to Speer Road Church.
Though Messy church is closing we are opening something new on a Tuesday afternoon. Open Lounge we have called it and hope that people of all ages will drop in. We plan to sell the books, have a couple of craft activities and some simple refreshments. This is being headed up by the Lay Worker from Teddington Methodist Church Circuit; if you meet her I hope you will give her a warm welcome. We pray that this new venture will continue some of the contacts we have had with Messy Church and develop new links into the community. If you could help with the refreshments on the odd Tuesday afternoon please let me know.
As we enter 2019 may we continue to grow in our love for God and be ready to seek his will and purpose as a fellowship in Thames It is good to meet to worship God week by week and share together as a community of faith, may we look forward to doing that and rejoice together in what it means to serve our Risen Saviour.
May Godís presence be real to you throughout 2019,
