Steph & Simon's Blog 

Welcome to our blog. Here you will find some of the reflections and thoughts on church life, leadership and general life from Steph Littlejohn (Minister) and Simon Lace (Team Leader). We hope you enjoy it!

Thank you!

Just wanted to say a massive THANK YOU  to everyone who helped in so many ways to prepare and run (and clean up after!) all of our Christmas/New Year events.

There are too many to list, but off the top of my head we had two school visits, two school Community Carols evenings, a Thursday Carol Service, a Premix Toddlers party, Messy Church, Night Shelter (including on Christmas night), a Christmas Day lunch celebration and I’m pretty sure there was a Christingle service in there too…. Oh, yes – and my favourite of all, Turkey & Tinsel, with about 80 senior citizens on New Year’s Eve!

All of that alongside our normal services (well, I say “normal”…) has made for a busy but joyous and wonderful Christmas time at EBC.

We have also recently had the privilege of hosting a service of celebration for the life of a wonderful Christian lady who passed away recently, with at least four churches and about 150 people present.

This morning, Rob, Kat and I received a message of thanks from Abs Dumbuya in Sierra Leone, thanking EBC profusely for the help we have been able to give him and our partner church (Regent Road Baptist Church).

I feel so very privileged to be a part of this church family. Thank you.

Wishing you a wonderful and exciting 2020!

Every blessing
