AMC CA 2020 2

Not withstanding the Prime Minister's national address last night, the Coronavirus restrictions will prevent the usual annual house-to-house collections during this Christian Aid Week.

As a consequence, a valuable source of income for some of the world's most vulnerable people will not be available. Nor will we have a collection envelope with our weekly notices at church, again, as a consequence of Covid-19. So, to help to fill that gap, we are all encouraged to donate via the Christian Aid website, which says this:

"The coronavirus outbreak threatens the health of our neighbours near and far. Together we must respond quickly to help the most vulnerable.
Coronavirus has shown us that our futures are bound more tightly together than ever before.
And now it is spreading across the world's poorest countries, putting people living in poverty at great risk.
These people are already facing a lack of water, food and healthcare. Some are homeless. Some are living with underlying health issues such as HIV.
As coronavirus infection rates speed up, they will feel the impacts of the virus deeply. We must respond now.
Coronavirus impacts all of us. But love unites us all.
Please donate today." For the Christian Aid website, click here.

Indeed, no one understands them; they utter mysteries by the Spirit. 3 But the one who prophesies speaks to people for their strengthening, encouraging and...

Pete Honeyball: Thu 10 Jun 5:00am

Love is Pete's theme with this beautiful chapter of 1 Corinthians 13.Love Is Indispensable1 If I speak in the tongues of men or of angels, but do not have love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal. 2 If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but do not have love, I am nothing. 3 If I give all...
