For God so loved the world that He gave His only-begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.

“‘Not called!’ did you say? ‘Not heard the call,’ I think you should say. Put your ear down to the Bible, and hear him bid you go and pull sinners out of the fire of sin. Put your ear down to the burdened, agonized heart of humanity, and listen to its pitiful wail for help. Go stand by the gates of hell, and hear the damned entreat you to go to their father’s house and bid their brothers and sisters, and servants and masters not to come there. And then look Christ in the face, whose mercy you have professed to obey, and tell him whether you will join heart and soul and body and circumstances in the march to publish his mercy to the world.” – William Booth.
Word from Mick
“We have the truth and we need not be afraid to say so,” – JC Ryle.
I would like to share with you the goodness and kindness of our Lord. A little while ago we had to find a new home to park the bus (Godpod). Carisbrooke priory has kindly let us park on their grounds. A hard standing had to be made which involved digger work, hard core, gate and posts etc.
There was a contractor working down the road doing a driveway. I asked him how much type one hard core would cost per tonne. He asked me what it was for and so I shared my faith with him (Acts 1: 8) and about what we do on the bus. He said that he would donate the hard core. The same thing happened with the digger and gate posts. The Lord said He will supply your needs and He has. It is a great encouragement to us when the Lord builds. We don’t labour in vain and it was a very gracious answer to prayer. “Who is there like our God?”
Every Blessing, Mick.

Teaching Weekend – Paul Carter
We are thankful for the continuing visits of Paul to the island for these studies and sharing the gospel with different fellowships. This year he has covered the subject of ‘The Providence of God’ and on the last occasion has started on the ‘The Order of Salvation.’ We look forward to what is in store for our next meetings. We pray that the Holy Spirit will illuminate His word to us anew as we welcome Paul over for the remaining two weekends (as shown below). Anybody is also welcome to come and join in with us.

Summer Outreach at the Shows
The shows are a wonderful opportunity to meet people and share the good news in a non-confrontational way. Seeing the faces of the young children having their faces painted and the joy this brings cannot be measured. We gave out to the parents and guardians a flyer and tracks on leaving our marquee. Where appropriate we would share with those who want to know more about the Christian faith. We did sell a little “bric-a-brac” and had a mixture of books, Christian and other subjects for people to take. We also had a table with wristbands, book marks and other Christian materials and these were used as an opener for conversations.
Our main purpose as always is to honour the Lord Jesus Christ. Working as a team it is so essential that we all play our part. This is so true of the Church today, that we work and witness together with Jesus Christ as our Head this surely is our calling as believers.
Thank you to those who provided our pitches and made us welcome at Chale and Wolverton Manor.
Thanks also to St James Church, Ryde for inviting us to come and share at a mid-week meeting about the work of the Godpod and to share in Christian fellowship.
‘Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Christ, just as He chose us in Him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before Him in love, having predestined us to adoption as sons by Jesus Christ to Himself, according to the good pleasure of His will, to the praise of the glory of His grace, by which He made us accepted in the Beloved,.. – Ephesians 1: 3-6.
May the Lord’s grace abide with you and your loved ones – The Team and Trustees.
