When you are an old car enthusiast then restoration is not far from your vocabulary. Jonathan Brain loves playing around with old cars and he brought some bits to see if we could identify the cars they came from.
Jon reminded us that Jesus is in the restoration business and His dying on the cross enabled human kind to be restored, if they were willing to repent and seek forgiveness, back to the family of God. After all we were made in the image of God but as fallen creatures need that "canker of sin" to be cut away and made whole once more, and only Jesus Christ is able to do this.
The summer Strawberry Tea held at the Chapel is a very popular event. We usually like to invite a Missionary who may be available to give an update on their work. So on 1st July we were pleased to welcome Steve and Ruth Lancaster of AIM who work in Tanzania. Their home Church is only a few miles away at Corsham Baptist.
Following a scrumptious tea (no good coming if you don't like strawberries!) Steve and Ruth gave a Power Point presentation of how they are involved in the Gospel work in Tanzania. It was most interesting to see how God is working in that needy African Country and to hear of the appetite of the people to know more about the Lord Jesus Christ.
This popular bi-monthly event continues and usually there are musical items and testimony between courses.
Pastor James Alsop from Melksham came along to play, sing and talk to us between courses at the July Soup Lunch.
James encouraged us to join in as he sung some more modern pieces and spoke of the love of the Lord Jesus available to all who would turn to Him.
