Greetings to you all at the beginning of a New Year.

The past year has seen difficult times for our congregation here in Maxwelltown West, but as we look forward to a new year, I believe that there are new beginnings happening within our community, and I hope and pray that these will continue to grow and flourish during the coming months.

At the end of last year, we submitted some prospective dates for a presentation to the congregation, about Interim Ministry.  This will now take place in the church on Thursday22nd February at 7.00pm.The whole congregation is invited to attend.  Following that, we may have to wait some time for an Interim Minister to become available, but after the presentation, there may be more details of timing available.  In the meantime, we look forward to what this year brings and all that it holds for us, as individuals and as a church community.

It has also been a difficult time for our friends in Bondo and Mathia.  Indeed, it has been difficult to maintain contact during the past few months, so our prayers are with the folk there as they face the struggles before them.

Thank you to everyone for your help and support,

Love and prayers,

Sally.
