This is a reminder that there will be NO church service this week. (We had 5 services in March, so this substitutes for our 5th week off.)

Also, our next service, which will be on May 5th, will be followed by the second Lord’s Supper service at 4.30pm. This is open to everyone, and especially those who were not able to be there on March 29th. If you would like to participate in footwashing, facilities will be available for you to do so. Don’t forget to bring a towel.

We are looking forward to our Pentecost service coming up on May 20th at 10.30am. There will be a luncheon afterwards with time for fellowshipping. More details to come.

Rod Matthews has recently returned from Myanmar. He wrote:

The Holy Spirit made his presence felt powerfully in a conference of church elders and leaders held in Yangon,Myanmar on March 17 th . Nearly 40 people packed into a meeting room at the Ten Mile Hotel to hear speakers from Malaysia, India, Singapore and Australia. Nine GCI church pastors and elders came down from the Matupi area in the ChinHills and were hosted by their countrymen from Yangon, and we were joined by several pastors from other fellowships who had been invited as a result of email communication and previouslyestablished relationships.
