Opening the door to a New Year!

A Happy New Year from St. Margaret's Iver Heath!

 

As you walk through the door from 2017 into 2018, how do you feel, confident, hopeful and  full of purpose; or fearful, anxious and aimless?

Someone is standing at the door of your soul this New Year. It is not the baby whose birth we celebrate at such great cost and length in December. It is a man, the grown Jesus, the risen Jesus, alive, knocking at your door.

He is saying -

     ‘Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door,

I will come in…'

(Revelation chapter 3 verse 20)    

Is Jesus alive and real… or just a person from history?  Who is he, what has he done and what can he do for me? What does it mean to be a Christian?

If you are curious about Jesus and about the Christian faith, we have a new group for you!

Meeting Sunday evenings at the Rectory (2, Pinewood Close Iver Heath, SL0 0QS) at 7.30 p.m. we will be exploring Christianity using the Gospel of Mark, the shortest and simplest of the gospels.

Sometimes people feel embarrassed or afraid about asking these kind of questions. If you don't think of yourself as a Christian, but would like to know more, then give the group a try! You will be warmly welcomed!

Starting January 21st. - Exploring Christianity. 

If reading this, or in some other way, you can hear Jesus knocking and want to open the door, simply pray to let him in!

Contact us for more details or just show up on Sunday January 21st. at 7.30 p.m. at The Rectory,

and begin the wonderful journey of 2018 with Jesus as your friend and Lord!

St. Margaret's Choir – as seen on TV! .... and in the pub!

Choir singing

 

Ten members of our church choir under Chris Daubney's direction,   featured  in the  Christmas  special edition of

‘Birds of a Feather' screened on 18th December.

They enjoyed their time  with  the   film crew,  and were shown singing  ‘Silent Night',  twenty three minutes  into

the show.

  

 

Then on the Thursday before Christmas the choir assembled to share the wonder of the Christmas story by singing carols in ‘The Black Horse' pub in the village - an opportunity to share our faith in song!

Focus on Giving

Although we have seen some exciting growth in our ministry with children, we are facing difficulty meeting our normal commitments. We have a projected shortfall of £4,000 at the end of this year.  This is about our on-going commitment in Christ's service to pay our way and build the Christian community at St. Margaret's. For this reason, I am asking you to search your hearts and to respond, if you are committed to Jesus Christ and his Church, by revising your giving, with a target of 5% of income in mind.

Please prayerfully consider how you may be able to help us as together we reach out to our community with the Goodness of Jesus!

‘Each one of you must give as he has decided in his heart, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.'

                                                                                                                                      (Second Corinthians chapter 9 verse 7)
