Friday evening update from the Great Baddow pastor: 11th January 2019
I have the pulpit this time and we will look at the baptism of Jesus Christ and ask, ‘Why?’
I am supported by Messrs Cornish and Woolford.
We will not have the Internet this time as some ‘key players’ are away. We will however have an audio trail for the archive.
Our Winter Social will start in the hall soon after 4pm, with our thanks to Amelia Mortimer and her helpers for all the arrangements. The theme is Characters – in books etc.
Next week, the 19th, Dr David Rose will be our speaker. Philip Stevens will have the announcement time before the usual 1pm start, and Carol Crichton will lead the hymns.
Although there is of course flexibility on the speaking schedule we much appreciate much hard work by Philip Stevens to assemble the dates. We have some 14 ministers assigned over the whole of this year which will give us much variety. I will be in GB most weeks.
With an average of between 40 and 50 members attending each time this is both an opportunity for the ministry as well them having the Internet outreach to about the same numbers (over time) so serving maybe towards 100. It is also GB’s opportunity to be presented with such a variety of ministerial experience.
