Thank you to everyone yesterday who came along to Church to listen to the Youth Group relate some of their experiences in Malawi in July.

Each one of the girls who went gave a brief presentation on one area of the trip or something that had made an impression on them.

Lucy talked about visiting the village of a girl at boarding school hoping to go on to study medicine. Lizzie gave us an overall picture of her first impressions of Malawi and her abiding memories, Niamh talked about going with a team from the hospital on an under 5 health and immunisation clinic.  Alice shared with us her enjoyment of spending time in a rural school, Chissangano, and the fun we had there doing crafts, sports etc. Emma involved everyone in her presentation, as she had all the other girls demonstrating some of the games we learnt from the Malawians, such as champion and fly! and Hannah talked about spending time with similar age Malawian girls at school and doing their nursing training, and sharing with them their hopes and aspirations for life.

There will be a display of photos on the notice board in the church over the next few weeks, please have a look and ask the girls questions about the photos, they will be more than happy to talk about Malawi!

Here are just a few pictures . . .

We took out with us amongst other things, nearly 150 knitted teddies, which we gave to Agnes Mughoho, who runs a community nursery, for her to distribute to the children.

Kindled Fire

Once again this morning Andy Morton challenged us about standing up for what we believe in, doing what is right and not following the crowd, whilst at the same time not falling out with those who hold different opinions! Thank you Andy, we are enjoying your sermons!Kindled Fire

Grant us faith

Andy’s sermon this morning called on us to act upon our faith, using our heads and hearts. God has given us all amazing gifts for us to use for the benefit of others, our hands, hearts, minds, voices. Just as we have faith in God so He has faith in us to do his work in the world today.
