Congregational Letter 11 Nov 2021

Dear friends,

You are cordially invited to attend a “catch-up” morning at BMC on Saturday 20 November from 09h00-11h00. We will be reflecting on how God has sustained us despite the many challenges we have had to face, and we will be looking at what we might expect moving forward into the future.

Please RSVP to the church office 0217153045 or by 19 November as numbers are limited.

We also need to appoint 3 new Society Stewards. We were unable to do this at our ASM in June as we did not have a quorum. Raylynn Thompson has been nominated and has accepted the nomination but we still need 2 more nominations. Please prayerfully consider this and return the attached nomination form by 19 November.

Our Sunday service at 09h00 on 21 November will be a Celebration Service as we celebrate what God has done and commit the future to God. Please would you consider sharing what you are grateful for either in writing or by voice or video note. You can send your contribution to me at 0828231766 or by 20 November and I will compile all the messages for the service on Sunday. This way, even if you cannot attend the service, your voice will be heard and we can join together in giving thanks to God.

One of the things I am grateful for is your continued financial support for God’s work in the Heathfield Circuit. Please continue to pray for our Circuit, especially our finances, as we have depleted all reserves and are “running on empty” at the moment. We continue to trust that God will provide even as we make tough decisions for the future.

I pray that as we prepare for Advent, Christmas and a new year that we would experience afresh the empowering presence of God in our world and our lives. May hope, joy, peace and love prevail now and always.

Grace & Peace
