The Collect prayer for Harvest Thanksgiving:

Eternal God, you crown the year with your goodness and you give us the fruits of the earth in their season:
grant that we may use them to your glory, for the relief of those in need and for our own well-being;
through Jesus Christ your Son our Lord, who is alive and reigns with you,
in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.

 

faith discussions

'Faith Encounters' meets again in Eymet in Sept/Oct

We are never too old!

Sometimes change comes because we choose to change or because we have to change! Change is for someone else and not for us because we are set in our ways! That can apply to the young and the old. Following the change in one person's life and in the lives around them helps us to understand change in ourselves. This 6 week Faith Encounter Course is about changing lives.

Meetings are held at the Temple on Tuesdays, 19:00 - 20:30

View weekly topics here.

The vision is to gather English speaking Christians of all ages, based in France for a week of spiritual refreshment, rest and fun; out of this to build effective networks and relationships that continue to encourage people throughout the year. To be an encouragement and an oasis for church leaders in France.

The objectives are: to offer sound and inspiring biblical teaching; to lead lively, Spirit infused worship; to create a useful space for church/ministry leaders to network and build relationships; to provide opportunities for prayer ministry; to offer training in relevant subjects/topics... Save the date, and watch this space about updates for the 2018 programmes...

 

Oak Hall Expeditions: Travel to Jerusalem 

oak hall expeditionsLinked with my ‘Home Church’ back in the UK is a Christian Holiday company, called Oak Hall expeditions which offers a range of holidays, all over the world, with a Christian message. But by far the most popular of the summer trips is the Bible Study Tours of Israel.

The help of volunteers helps make these trips as accessible as possible, and I am such a volunteer. Trips are divided between time in Jerusalem, where we will stay within short walking distance of the Old City, and Galilee, where we will stay on the shores of the lake; with an overnight stop in Bethlehem in between.

Activities include visiting Old and New Testament sites, a boat trip on the Sea of Galilee, and swimming in the Dead Sea, and evening talks by the accompanying Speaker on a biblical subject (this year I believe my speaker will be doing a study on Mark’s Gospel). The Speaker will also lead us in morning prayers, which in Galilee will be on the edge of the lake as the sun rises; a truly amazing experience.

Please feel free to contact me for more information (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.), I would be happy to give you more information. To read more, click here.
