Sunday 3 April 2011
Hello everyone and welcome to our church services today.
If you are visiting with us we extend a special welcome to you.

Sunday Morning
10am - This morning counsellor Kathy King will continue our series on Emotional Health.
Be sure to stay for a coffee and chat after the service.

This is week five of our series on emotional health.
As part of this series we are privileged to, once again, have Kathy King share with us.  Kathy is a well recognised counsellor in the area of emotional health, having also produced her own material and seminars on this subject called 'Discovery' and 'Live Free'.
We are blessed to have her with us today.

Bless you all
Pastor Brent Pickworth

Food Bank Sunday
Today is Food Bank Sunday.  The first Sunday of the month will now be the focus for the church food bank.  This is the Sunday where everyone brings some small food item to stock it up for the month ahead.  Bless all those who generously give to this great outreach service.

Coming Up:
Wednesday Worship
For all our wonderful seniors, Wednesday Worship is on this coming Wed 6th April.  Begins 10am with a cup of tea or coffee and cake.  Service starts 10:30pm led by Lesley.  David Harris brings the message.

Church Prayer and Fasting Day
This Wednesday 6th April is our monthly prayer and fasting day.
We ask that you consider fasting for the day and pray into the following five points:

1. Church Vision. For the 2010-2013 vision of church growth.
2. Life Investments. For the spec house to sell at a fair price.
3. Community. Pray for the harvest, that we would be able to reach into our community through all our events & programmes, but mostly through our congregation's everyday lives to see people won for Christ.
4. Blessing. For blessing over all our church members, good health, protection and Spiritual growth.
5. General. Seek God as to what you should individually pray into and make this your priority, not just for the prayer and fasting day but for the week ahead.
