Numbers were up again at the Airdrie meeting this week. John took some singing which was great, especially with the extra support. Rae spoke around 'Waiting on God'. A lovely worship time followed which was intermingled with prayers for the work. We finished by putting some outreach ideas on paper over a cup of tea, coffee and biscuits.
God was with us in Newmains again this week and we enjoyed the privilege of using our nice new padded seats which have been gifted us!
Diana and Mark took a time of singing at the beginning before Alan gave an excellent testimony to the saving power of Christ. Following this, Mark brought a good word about finding a place of security and safety in God. He led a beautiful worship time at the end of the meeting. The presence of God was very close.
We also had some chat together at the end about the way forward. Despite the fact that there are some major repairs needing attended to we are going to go ahead with an opening service and display architectural drawings to show the improvements we are hoping to make. We pray that this may arouse some interest in the work of God in the local area.
This was our first night gathering together again after the summer in a new hall. It was great to have all the familiar faces back again.
We began the evening with a mixture of different up to date reports from everyone.
Carol then spoke to us about the importance of having the right foundations in our lives, she went on to link it to the future vision for the Coatbridge work and what that could look like. During our worship time at the end the presence of Christ was tangible amongst us. A lovely prophetic word was given.
We finished the evening with a time of fellowship and discussion about future plans for this work.
