Dear Friends There is a lot coming up that is exciting. You’ll see, elsewhere in this issue, stuff about the forthcoming Southwold Beach Mission. We will be closely involved again. You’ll also see something about my Uganda trip – with a prompting to pray. I hope most of you will remember from last month’s issue that we will be offering the Alpha Course, an opportunity to Explore the meaning of Life… Several people have confirmed their enthusiasm to be involved. But we will need more. The planning is a bit further developed and it will be Monday evenings (possibly also a daytime slot if requests for that come in). The start will be Monday 11 September. Please pray – and in particular ask God to prompt you who to invite. Often the best way is to offer to accompany them. Please also keep praying for our outreach in general. Include all the young families and children’s work and ask God to lead the person He is calling to the post of Church Family Support & Outreach Worker. Pray for Don, myself and others involved in the discernment and interview process. Be praying for, and watching out for your opportunities, as Peter puts it, to always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have (1 Peter 3: 15).

Blessings Jon
