Life Questions
These questions are for you to consider carefully and apply to your life. Read Philippians 3:1-9 & John 2:13-22 and think about the following:
1. Rethink your faith journey and restate it.
2. (v4-6) What do you have confidence in?
3. (v7-8) Is there a time you have put things aside to follow Jesus?

Notice
Safeguarding is a very important issue for the Church. The Diocese would like every member of the congregation to take part in a simple Safeguarding session. Please join us in Church on Friday March 9th, 8.15-9.15pm. Refreshment provided. If you have already undertaken the C0 online course you do not need to attend. Further information from Anne Lancaster – Parish Safeguarding Officer

Birthdays
We celebrate with and pray for Carol Bloxham and Ian Savage as they have their birthdays this week.

Prayer
We thank God for Hallie as she spends her last week with us this week. We thank our Father for all the blessings she brought us as a church; for the words of encouragement, for sharing her gift of leading worship, for being such a helpful, friendly and warm presence in our midst. We ask for the Lord's guidance and protection on her as she moves forward into new things. Amen.
