A beautiful sunny afternoon heralded a sunny atmosphere inside as well as outside Mount Pleasant Church. It's often the case that fewer guests attend when it is warm outside; not so today, 60+ came. It's always popular when the cupboard is open and plenty of clothes etc were sorted and given out by the "A Team". The food looked really good and was provided by Kingdom Life Church - thank you!
It was encouraging that one of the visitors from St Peter's Church, who came last week to see what goes on, decided to return as a volunteer this week. We really hope that she decides to come on a regular basis.
Thought for the day involved the participation of one of the regulars at Street Church, who proved to be a real star. The topic was "Do you realise how special you are?" By the end of the talk many of the listeners were joining in with her responses and she received a great round of applause from her friends.The answer to the question is, of course, that if Jesus was willing to die for her then she must be someone very special indeed!
One of the helpers had put some of her favourite leaflets out on the tables before the guests arrived: they happened to be identical to those that the speaker had planned to give out, a really affirming "coincidence".
Next week Emmanuel Church will be catering. Apologies if there is no blog next week, but normal service will be resumed the following week!
Thank you for all that you do. We really value your prayerful support. May The Lord richly bless you.
