In our lectionary readings in the run-up to Easter, we continue our focus on Jesus and his saving work. In the continuing uncertainties in Egypt it is good to know that we have a God who does not change and who can be relied on whatever else is happening. The future is unclear for Egyptians, expats and the refugees among us, but we continue in the work we have been given to do, trusting in God’s provision. If you would like to join us in prayer, don’t forget the skype prayer meeting on Tuesday nights – you can join in from anywhere in the world!
In the Guild Hall, the work on the bathrooms is now complete. Last Sunday Fiona Cameron, the StARS Director, Marilyn Hansmann, StARS Accountant and church treasurer, and I, met with a kitchen contractor to commission the work on the Guild Hall kitchen. We hope this can be done over the Easter break. He was impressed and surprised that StARS manages to feed over 200 children each day from the current inadequate facility.
StARS has now produced its first termly newsletter which can be downloaded from the Media page. It is well worth a read!
The number of people attending our Friday and Sunday services seems to have increased slightly and we look forward to a hopeful and enjoyable Easter season. If you would like to donate for Easter lilies, please see Gloria.
Hope you have a good week,
