New! - August / September 2017
Every two months this web page will be reserved for all of us at Upper Gornal Methodist Church. It's good to be thanked, and other people are encouraged when we remember to thank them.
Having gathered your comments during recent Church Services, please find everyone's words of thanks below:
Rev. Kevin Jones:
"Thank you so much for your support over the last two months. Recovery has been slower than I had expected, but we are on the mend. Your encouragement, care and especially prayers have been valued greatly. We had a good time at the Manse BBQ on Saturday evening, and a total of £291 was raised towards helping the Neema Mission School in Uganda. We hope this will enable us to put the roof on one of the new classrooms. We have the tin sheets, nails etc., but no money to pay the workers (so the work should soon begin). I hope you are looking forward to your summer holidays as much as we are. May God's blessing and presence be with you".
"Thank you to everyone who helped in any way with the preparation for and participation in the Baptismal Service last Sunday night. I really appreciated all of your support, and feel very blessed to have sucha loving extended church family".
"I want to thank everyone at Upper Gornal Methodist Church for the support they gave me and Sarah during my recent illness. Most of all for the prayers you made on my behalf. All the time I had a feeling of calm and peace, which I am sure was due to your prayers".
Springs Food Bank @ Upper Gornal:
"Thank you for the support you give to Springs Foodbank. Your gifts and donations are greatly appreciated. Through the coming months we will continue to need stocks of food and other household supplies to meet the needs of individuals and families in our local area. Thank you too, for all your prayers for us in this vital ministry".
"A big thank you to Mary Fellows, who has contributed so much to the coffee & tea being served (after the evening service) for more than 30 years. She became involved for a few weeks at the time, and has carried-on ever since! Thank you Mary, your work has been very much appreciated."
"It was such a joy to see 16 children in Church last week. Many thanks to all who work with our children - God Bless you. We pray that numbers will continue to increase, and that our children will come to know Jesus in a personal way"
