On Saturday, we had a special and moving time of worship together at …Stepping Beyond with friends, Tim & Ann O’Hare as we continued to explore worshiping our God with creativity, music rhythm, colour, movement and art.
Thinking about the change of seasons with the sudden increase in temperature and warm sunshine this week, we had a time of focus on how God takes us through the journey of life in seasons.
No matter which season you are in right now, God is with you.
Our next …Stepping Beyond is Saturday 14th July, 7.00-9.30pm
We look forward to seeing you there!
Seasons In Life
by Cindy Wyatt
To everything in life there is a season
with every phase a purpose and reason
When one season ends a new one will begin
gaining wisdom from where we have been
A season to press forward to what lies ahead
leaving the past behind and by Jesus being led
A season to labor in the harvest field
and a time to rest while in comes the yield
A season to weep and a time to rejoice
a time to be silent and a time to lift up our voice
A season to meditate on God’s love and His word
a time to tell the gospel to others as you have heard
A season to be healthy, robust, and strong
a time of weariness and pain and for Heaven long
A season to abound and a time to suffer need
all the while ploughing to sow the gospel seed
A season to be active and a time to be still
all things according to God’s perfect time and will
A season to be born and a time to die
when we fly away and go to our home on high
A big thank you to Patrick and helpers for organising another year of fun Easter activities re-enacting the Easter story. Here are a couple of highlights from Easter week!
Palm Sunday – Cycling from the Rose Garden at Preston Park to Brighthelm
Maunday Thursday at Hollingbury Fort… focusing on Jesus in the garden of Gethsemane and the arrest of Jesus.
Good Friday at Preston Park Manor Secret Garden (Peter denies Jesus; Jesus on trial and the crucifixion)
This Sunday 25th March is Palm Sunday. Cyclists to meet at the Rose Garden in Preston Park at 10.50am. We look forward to welcoming you with the waving of branches when you arrive at Brighthelm (please bring any foliage you have if you are not cycling)
They took palm branches and went out to meet him, shouting, “Hosanna!” “Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord!” “Blessed is the king of Israel!”
We will also be celebrating Passover together this Sunday.
“The blood will be a sign for you on the houses where you are, and when I see the blood, I will pass over you. Exodus
“As you know, the Passover is two days away—and the Son of Man will be handed over to be crucified.” Matthew 26:2
