Letter from the Manse (138)
Thought provoking, biblical, often topical but always worth a read!
We set aside last Saturday as a fast day: a day of special prayer for the church. I listed out twelve things that I believe the Bible encourages us to hope for, and to pray for...
One verse has been often in my mind over the past weeks. “It is better to go to the house of mourning than to go to the house of feasting, for this is the end of all mankind, and the living will lay it to heart” (Ecclesiastes 7:4)
Last Sunday was by any standard an eventful day for us. Independence Day. The day when the fellowship in Charlesworth was to be constituted as an independent church.
Are you looking for ideas for presents? Well, maybe I can help, at least when it comes to buying presents for family members, and friends from this church. Why not a new Bible this Christmas?
Next month, the folk in Charlesworth are hosting a one-off and perhaps unique event called “Roots that Refresh”. It’s a four-day study-course in church history. Our history. The history of churches like ours: Calvinistic - or Particular - Baptist Churches.
