An Audio recording of our Sunday morning service is now available by dialing 028 9124 7957 (calls charged at local rate). We would encourage you to make members of our congregation, who maybe don’t have access to the internet or a DVD player, aware of this facility to allow them to enjoy and feel part of our worship.

As part of our series we will be having six special mid-week meetings which you can tune into (either on Zoom or through our YouTube channel). These short 30 minute services will happen on Wednesday evenings at 7:30 pm, beginning this week, 17th February. After this there will be an opportunity to stay on for our Mid Week Prayer Meeting from 8.00 – 8:30 pm. The theme will then continue through our Sunday services as we approach Easter.

I hope you will join us on this journey.

Rev. Andy Galbraith

If you plan to join us on Zoom for this series, please contact the Church Office for details. You can join us from 7.15 pm to allow for some chat & catch up before the service begins.

Prayer Points 

 

Let us Pray… for the Persecuted Church

In spite of the hardships of the pandemic there is so much to praise God for.  In adversity He gives us opportunity.

  • Praise Him first of all for the amazing faithfulness of our brothers and sisters in Christ across the world in the face of unspeakable hardships and suffering.
  • Praise Him that through the support of Open Doors 90,000 north Korean believers are being supported and kept alive via networks in China. Pray for them.
  • Praise Him that in Central Asian countries which are very hostile to anyone who is a Christian, the pandemic has opened some surprising doors. In one country a shortage of oxygen supplying machines led to Christians buying some small inexpensive ones which give 4 hours of oxygen. The local hospital directed them to some needy patients at home.  Sitting with a family, previously hostile to Christians while the machine did its work, they were asked why they did this. They were able to share the Gospel of God’s amazing love.  In another country Christians were on the street giving bags of food to needy people and with the food a Christian book, and the usually hostile police turned a blind eye. Pray for those who heard or read of Christ.
  • Praise Him that in Vietnam over 2000 books of beautifully illustrated Bible stories for children are ready for distribution to the Hmong tribal peoples, and adults trained to use them.  Pray for their safe distribution and use.

 

 

Faithful Giving

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 office@westchurchbangor.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.
