St John's News - 22 August 2023

Dear friends,

Jesus answered, "Everyone who drinks this water will be thirsty again,
but whoever drinks the water I give him will never thirst.
Indeed, the water I give him will become in him a spring of water
welling up to eternal life."
John 4:13-14

If you were missed Gavin’s brilliant talk on the woman at the well on Sunday, you can watch the service on our YouTube channel.

Next Sunday's service at 10:30am includes the Lord’s Supper and we will be hearing about another amazing woman of faith, Helen Roseveare. There will be a craft activity for the children.

Elmsfest - 2 September
Elmfest is the Elmswell autumn fair at The Blackbourne on Saturday 2 September between 12:00 and 17:00. Please come along to support this community event. If you are available to help at the Christians Together In Elmswell stall, please let me know. We need help transporting tables etc, setting up/clearing away, and people available during the day. We aim to have some children's games, flyers and a Sunday School display, a prayer tree and a prayer tent for anyone who wishes to receive prayer.

Back to Church Sunday - 10 September
The service on Sunday 10 September will be a special guest service, tailored for those who are either new to church or who haven’t been to church in a long while. It will include a talk explaining God's offer of forgiveness and reconciliation and a testimony. Please pray and think about who can invite along to encounter our amazing God.

I am taking part in the Ride & Stride event on 9 September to raise money for Suffolk Historic Churches Trust. If you would like to support me, the sponsor form will be at the back of church in Sunday or you can donate online here.
