As many of you will know Ruth and I are off to a new role at the end of June and the church leaders are already starting to think about replacing us and about who comes next!
One of the things we are all really keen to ensure over the next few months is that we pray and seek God for what should happen next. Ruth and I would love your prayers that we finish our time at EBC really well and do a great handover.
Simon Lace and Steph Littlejohn who will be taking acting Senior Minister responsibilities when I leave also need your prayers.
And we all need to be praying that God shows clearly who and what should come next.
Jacque Childs (one of our Elders and the person responsible for leading our prayer efforts at EBC) has put together a series of opportunities for us to pray together.
Monthly times of prayer on Thursday evenings from 6.45pm to 7.30pm - before our Church Meetings starting on Thursday 17th March (then 21st April, 19th May, 24rd May, 21st July)
Monthly times of prayer on the last Sunday of each month from 9.15am to 10.00am - before our Big Story Sunday service starting on Sunday 27th March (then 24th April, 29th May, 26th June)
