No new events have been received since the beginning of the lock-down. Please check if the events listed below are open before travelling - we have not been advised of any changes.
A free phone line of hymns,reflections and prayers.
Are you in need of some daily hope during this lock-down? Daily Hope is free for anyone to call (irrespective of denomination - or whether the caller is even a believer).
When someone calls, they will have the option of listening to some comforting hymns, or hear a prayer, or listen to some helpful talks and Biblical reflections. Daily Hope ministers to older Christians who may not be tech savvy, and we want to reach older people more broadly, with the good news of Jesus.
Already well over 15,000 calls to ‘Daily Hope’ have been made.
The number, free to call from landlines or mobiles (in the UK) is 0800 804 8044.
Message from Gavin Calver, CEO at Evangelical Alliance:
Tune in to the weekly ‘corona virus conversations’ every Thursday at 10am led by the Evangelical Alliance on the Facebook Live events for the church during lock-down and beyond. We will be discussing topics such as, how the scattered church is responding to the crisis, what God is saying and doing in the midst of this, what can be re-imagined as we look ahead, and what we do as we seek to make Jesus known.

Run by the Christian Church for people of all religions and none.
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.
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 accessed 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.
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
