Eagles Wings Ministries - Turning Point Church

Whilst the churches are shut because of COVID-19, Eagle’s Wings Ministries UK are putting a service on Youtube. Available from 8:00am this Sunday morning (don’t forget to put your clocks forward one hour on Saturday night!).

Turning Point Church is a service that will last around 30 minutes. It is already on YouTube, so you can access it any time from now onwards.

The service will remain online until shortly before the following Saturday when a new service will appear, so can be access through the week.

We hope that it will bless you and others and that it will also speak to those who are not Christians and help them come to Christ.

The service is done by video rather than live streaming as we are not a physical church. This first week we have people in Weymouth, Dorchester and Bordon in Hampshire taking part.

We are grateful to Angie’s brother, David Arnott, for using his skills in producing this and editing together the contributions from different places - the wonders of technology.

If you think that others might be interested, please pass on the information. 

If you do join us in this, please let us know and let us know what you think and if you have any suggestions.

Above all, pray that many will discover Turning Point Church, and that through doing so may come to Christ or have their faith in Him renewed.

The regular blog on the website has restarted after a break. 

Thank you for your prayers for the recent Rwanda trip, which saw much blessing - and the added blessing of getting home before flights started to be curtailed! More in the next Prayer News.

We trust and pray that you will keep safe and keep well and above all know the precious presence of the Lord Jesus Christ with you and the Holy Spirit sustaining you.

With our love in Jesus,

Mike and Angie
