A PRAYER FOR OUR CHURCH

.

O God, make the door of this house

wide enough to receive all who need human love and fellowship;

narrow enough to shut out all envy, pride, and strife.

Make its threshold smooth enough

to be no stumbling-block to children,

nor to straying feet,

but rugged enough to turn back the tempter’s power.

God make the door of this house the gateway to thine eternal kingdom.

Over 1000 Christians from many different churches in Leamington gathered together to praise God in the open air.

People from all the churches in Leamington were welcomed to the service by the Revd. Jonathan Jee of St Paul’s Church. The congregation joined in songs, choruses and prayers and short presentations were given by three of the several inter-church ministries in the town. We heard of how the Well Christian Healing Centre was moving its premises and raising funds to accomplish this;  how Thrive Youth Ministries were working with young people and children  in the area and Man Up were endeavouring to bring the Christian Message to men’s groups in the town.

Darren Mitchell  of Christians Against Poverty and a member of St. Mary’s spoke of his difficult childhood, his feelings of being unloved and unwanted, his life of drink, drugs and crime and his conversion and life as a Christian.

At the end of the service, several groups enjoyed picnics in the park in glorious sunshine..

OUR MISSION PROJECT

 THE HOUSE OF LIGHT AND HOPE

(BEIT EL NOUR)

 

The fighting in Syria is constantly in the news. What is often reported is the human problem of how many of the population are desperate to escape from the situation. Many find a route out of Syria and travel to Lebanon which is a country of comparative safety.

The population of Lebanon is 4 million and at the present time this includes a million people from Syria i.e. 25% of the Lebanese population. Lebanon has a long history of caring for refugees.. It helped the Palestinians who were fleeing from Israel 30 years ago and a centre was set up in Sabra to give support. Over the years the nature of the work there has changed and that centre is now caring for the Syrian refugees. The centre has expanded and now an additional centre has been established at Nabraa. Among those fleeing from Syria are many children and young people. Their education has been disrupted because of the necessity to leave their homeland. This results in their chances of eventually being able to earn a wage diminishing.

Our Mission project this year is to support the education work being done at the Nabraa Centre in Beirut and to help the young displaced children to learn skills which will enhance their chances of eventually securing employment and becoming independent. At the present time 250 children are being educated at this centre which is called “The House of Light and Hope”. The Archbishop of Tyre and Sidon is the Patron of this Christian work.

The education work at the House of Light and Hope in Nabraa is our new Mission project and we aim to raise £1000 to help this work to progress.

Please pray for the work of the Centre and the staff and young people involved in the project and help us to raise money to help this Christian charity.
