I’m writing this looking out of the kitchen window at all the birds feeding, sparrows, blue tits, starlings and now a gold finch, what a beautiful little bird with fantastic plumage. Praise the Lord! The sun is now shining on the dogwood. That lovely crimson red colour reminds me of this time of year when one day in “His- tory”, that another piece of wood was coloured with crimson – that blessed cross of Calvary. What an unspeakable act of Love! This another wonderful act of God’s blessing, in that He should choose to save us, feed us, protect us and give us breath every day so that we may enjoy Him and all that He has created.
For me to take up the cross and witness to His Glory with my brothers is a most humbling experience, for I know what I am! So, I thank the dear Lord for His sovereign divine mercy and plenteous Grace. Showers of blessings be yours this Easter.
God Bless, Mick.
Easter is fast approaching and many of us will be reflecting on the price that was paid to redeem us from our sins by our Lord Jesus Christ. It cost Him dear! I often think about that moment when Jesus was separated from His father bearing our sins on the cross. He had never known a separation from His father until now on the cross and so He cried out “My God, my God why have you forsaken me.” We who trust in Jesus will never need to experience that separation for ourselves, for it is by grace that we are saved. Why should Jesus the perfect one have taken our place? The scripture says “God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, so that everyone who believes in him may not die but have eternal life” John 3:16. May this Easter be for us all a time to reflect and to give thanks for God’s most precious gift the salvation of our souls.
Every blessing, Roy.

Outreach Events – Easter and May Bank Holiday
We pray that there will be further opportunities for seed sowing and witness in 2016. Easter is earlier this year for us carrying the cross and street witness. We commence following the usual route around the island on Sunday 20th March. Continuing on Monday to Thursday followed by street witness on Good Friday in St James’ Square, Newport. Saturday will be a day of rest. On Easter Sunday morning we finish with the final leg.
God willing, we also aim to take the bus over to the Bembridge Street Fayre for the annual end of May bank holiday family event.
May the Lord’s grace be with you and your loved ones.
