We now have an audio link to our Sunday morning service for those members of our congregation who may not have access to the internet. If you know of anyone who would like to listen to our weekly service over the phone line please let them know this facility is available (from a Sunday morning) and that they should phone 028 9124 7957 (local rate call).
We have always been so grateful to God for the generosity of his people in West. Obviously there will be a very dramatic impact on our budget since there will be no services.
If you would like to switch to giving directly from your bank, our account details for single gifts, or to establish a standing order can be obtained by contacting the church office on 028 9145 9688 or by email firstname.lastname@example.org For any help please contact the church office, Stephen Cully or Jeremy Eves whose contact numbers can be obtained through the church office. Envelopes, with preferably cheques instead of cash (in line with Covid-19 guidelines) can also be left in the post box outside the automatic doors to the Welcome Area.

Our next scheduled drop off facility, supporting Storehouse NorthDown, for food and toiletries donations is Wednesday, 28th October between 11.00 am – 12.30 pm.
A detailed list can be found here
Please add a few extra items in your shopping trolley over the coming weeks and help make a difference to those finding this current situation we find ourselves in exceptionally difficult for various reasons.
If you are unable to drop items off during this time, maybe as you are continuing to self-isolate or are back at work, please give the church mobile a call (07543 198391) and we can arrange for someone to collect the items from you.

It would be valuable for this revenue generating facility to be shared widely within the church community.

Weekly Prayer Points
Please make time this week to pray for our brothers and sisters who are showing such courage day after day.
North Korea: This month saw the 75th anniversary of the Workers’ Party of Korea which commands all Koreans “we must honour the Great Leader comrade Kim Il-sung with ALL our loyalty.” (ie. The present leader’s grandfather). Pray:
- That Jesus would reveal himself to Kim Jong-un and the Workers’ Party and bring about their transformation.
- For all secret believers in North Korea, that God would strengthen them and provide for their needs.
- Officially, no-one has died from Covid-19 in North Korea. Pray for openness regarding the disease, and that all who are ill may be treated with compassion and care.
Nigeria: By contrast, persecution in Nigeria is not by Government action, but by its inaction. Merciless attacks by Fulani tribesmen and Boko Haram continue to kill Christians. Pastors are a particular target in the hope of destroying the church. Rose Tagwi’s pastor husband was murdered not long before the birth of their 3rd daughter. She named her Patience, because she is determined to wait patiently on the Lord for His strength. She said, “the evil men think killing a pastor will stop the Gospel. Nothing will stop the Gospel of Christ.”
Pray for so many widows like Rose, for all believers in Nigeria, and for the Fulani and Boko Haram.
