I spent my birthday in April exploring some of the Wirral Peninsula, including a visit to New Brighton Lighthouse. Lighthouses are special to me in my faith as they remind me of the light of Jesus which always shines in the darkness. Birthdays are always an opportunity for me to reflect on the year that has passed, and to wonder what the year to come will bring. I have moved from Bristol to Cheshire in the year since my last birthday, and been welcomed into your lives with love - thank you all so much!
What does the year to come hold for each of us I wonder? And for us as a fellowship of believers in Jesus Christ at Frodsham Methodist Church? Well, in the church, some physical changes will take place - which will include the complete redecoration of the church interior, and the upgrading of our visual equipment over the summer.
And I am hoping and praying for some physical changes in our fellowship too - to move us on from the good place where we are, to a place where we have greater confidence in sharing our faith together and with others who are seeking. So, we will be introducing sermon series on a theme twice this year, plus we hope to begin study meetings for Advent, Lent and Pentecost. And I will be introducing the Church Council to the idea of Class Meetings/Cell Church as a way of growing in our faith and discipleship in Jesus. Will you look forward with me to the year to come, and the physical and spiritual regeneration of our church?
Every blessing in Jesus,
