We enjoyed a busy April following an inspiring Easter service. Our very successful Alpha course has come to an end. The group want to carry on, so we have formed a Home Group meeting at the Manse Tuesdays 7.30pm. One of the guys, Dave, asked half way through the course if he could be baptised. What great news! Then Steve from the previous course asked, so with my help both did each other on April 10th to a packed church. Praise God. Please look at the photos at ‘Morton newday.co.uk’.
Kay led a very well attended Fashion show this month to raise funds for ‘Hope for Justice’. I was the only male model, and there are NO photos of this I am glad to say!
The church currently has a large scaffolding tower erected within the chapel. The electricians are booked to change the dated fluorescent tubes with adjustable wall uplighters. This made it difficult at TOTS this Tuesday where we had around 20 kids running and playing! What a great problem to have. Again, praise God.
On 7th May, 7.30pm, we have a cinema night at church showing Amazing Grace. On May 15th from 2.30pm we are preaching on the Well Head at Bourne as is Pentecost Praise. There will be puppet shows, face painting, 300 free burgers, 4 preachers and much more. Please bring a folding chair and your friends.
On May 30th we take over Low Farm Caravan Park in Folkingham for 5 days. Yes…it is May Camp! Again, tell your friends and if you don’t want to camp drop in as a Day Visitor for only £2. There will be lots to do, including outdoor family games, kids craft, daily video Bible study featuring Jeff Lucas, and live entertainment t every evening upstairs in the barn.
Before I became a Christian, I thought church was only on a Sunday morning. And moreover, was boring. How little I knew. (In every way, actually!) Church is not a building, it is an ‘assembly’, a group united. We at Morton New Day like to feel we are lively and welcoming. If you can, come and meet us at any of our daily events, or maybe drop in on a Sunday at 10.30am. You will be pleasantly surprised!
Be blessed, Pastor Andy
