Welcome to our services today and a special welcome to any worshipping with us for the first time.
Since the end of January we have been sharing a diary of Prayer for our church here at Highbury. This week is the fourth of those weeks of prayer … and it leads us up to our Annual Church Meeting on Thursday evening. It’s an important meeting as we will be receiving reports of the life of the church, electing Deacons and making appointments in the life of our church. We also be making plans for the future of the church as Felicity and Richard will be retiring and moving in July. Do remember the life of the church in your prayers and join us for the meeting on Thursday. If you haven’t already, please take a look at the Giving for Growth leaflets and see if you can fill them in so that we can see what gifts of time, talents and money people are able to share.
In the run up to Easter we are looking at what is at the heart of the Christian faith.
We began with faith in a great big God who helps put the problems of the world in some perspective.
We went on to see how Jesus Christ not only opens up a window on to the God who is Love but draws us in the closest of relationships with God our Father.
Today we recognise that we cannot follow Jesus in our own strength but need to draw on that unseen yet very real power he promises in the Holy Spirit.
