PRAYERS FOR OTHERS – OVERSEAS
The crisis in Ukraine, in particular the Crimea region, continues to dominate headlines around the world.
Pray for diplomatic efforts to succeed in bringing a swift, peaceful and just end to the crisis in Ukraine.
Remember our partner church in the Hungarian Reformed Church in Transcarpathia in the west of Ukraine at this difficult time.
The Rev Lesley Carroll will be representing the Board of Mission Overseas at the ‘Christ at the Checkpoint’ conference in Bethlehem, which is being organised by Bethlehem Bible College from 10th to 14th March. The conference will focus on the application of the principles of the Kingdom of God in the context of the Palestinian-Israeli conflict. It will cover topics including; the Palestinian Church, religious radicalism, Christian Zionism, the teaching of Jesus in a place of conflict, peace-making and reconciliation.
- Pray that the Conference will give participants a better understanding of the realities on the ground.
- Pray for safe and trouble-free travel for Lesley
Please remember that no cars are to be parked at the front area of the church except in the designated disabled parking spaces. This is a requirement under Health & Safety. The front area of the church is to remain clear in the event that we need to call an ambulance to the church.
In addition cars should only be parked at the side carpark in the car parking spaces marked as members of the congregation need access to the access ramp.
Small Groups meet fortnightly, mostly in homes across Belfast. Each group is unique in style and format but they all exist for people to meet together, form real relationships and encourage one another as we live life following Jesus. If you would like to meet new people and grow in your faith then join a small group. For information about Small Groups in Fisherwick check out the information boards beside the Coffee Bar, the website or contact the Church Office. The Small group Co-Ordinators are Peter and Linda Little.
