The following is an extract from the letter I have received back from Christian Aid in response to our donation from our tea party:
Many thanks for your kind donation of £68.50 (plus gift aids) towards the work of Christian Aid. Your gift will help support our work in more than 50 of the world's poorest countries. It was very kind of you to organise a Tea Time event. One project your money will support is in Sri Lanka where Chitrani Namanathan is the leader of a women's group at the Kobbsnills (tea) Estate. Since Christian Aid's partner the Institute for Social Development has been working with the women there, many have become literate and more aware of their rights.
"Most importantly, I now have the courage to confront management and negotiate better conditions".
Once again thank you so much for your continued support of our work with and for the poorest communities on earth. With your continued help, we can make a difference.
Thank you to all who supported this event.

forgiveness, is allowed to become real in all our lives, a new hope can be given to the world. The birth 2000 years ago and the birth in the present day must be held together if Christmas is to be a celebration, both of joyful thanksgiving, and also of a true hope for the world. Thus it is at Christmas that we are often most aware of areas where compassion, healing, justice and forgiveness are so necessary. We live in a world of conflict, hunger and disease. We see homelessness, marginalization, neglect and unkindness. Into this world the spirit of Christ is to be born. As we are called to worship him at Christmas, so too weare called to follow him, and let his spirit be born in us today.

Paul Woodman, a Christian Illusionist and Escapologist, will be there to do some of what he calls 'his tricks' and to share his testimony. This is an event for the whole congregation, but focused at the children and families of JAFFA and BaselineXtra. It's truly an 'All-Age Event'.
It's free so invite friends and family to come along for fun and a message! We won't be serving food, but there will be sweets and nibbles, coffee/tea and soft drinks available for everyone as they arrive.

The worship was pretty inspiring - it's not often you hear 4000 men singing songs together. Well, I suppose it is quite often if you count football, but they're not usually quite as Christian as these songs. We'll see which ones we can work in over the coming few weeks in our services...
The main speaker who had an Irish name, Erwin McManus, actually comes from El Salvador via the USA. The main thing I learnt from the whole thing was to just get on and obey God in the things we already know we should be doing and not to worry to much about getting it just right - it's much better to obey and be a bit awkward and just to let God do his stuff. And the examples of the sort of stuff God has done are pretty awesome.
If you want to know more, then speak to me at the service next Sunday - I'll be there this time. After all, I am meant to be leading it.

1 John 2:28-3:10
‘My feet and inside daddy’s feet’
According to a recent Gallop Pole/ Survey of 1553 Americans of voting age, half of from the protestant tradition and a third of all from a Catholic tradition, claimed to be ‘born again’ Christians – translated statistically to the whole of the USA that would mean that 50 million adult Americans are personally committed to serving Jesus is Lord and Saviour!

Starting this friday night, continuing right through to the following friday (9th Feb), we are putting on many evangalistic events in and around the university, from film nights to 'txt a pancake', questionnaires to lunch time events! We are excited about what God has planned and is doing already in our university! We would love you as our churches to join with us to pray for the students who are going to hear the gospel, especially this coming week. Our aim is "To show people the REALITY of Jesus in what we do to being Him Glory"
To Him be the Glory!
