Last week I was remembering the 24/7 Prayer Course with Pete Greig which we took part in a couple of years ago on Wednesday evenings. The videos have been re-recorded and a couple more sessions have been added, I’m going to include a session each Wednesday to help us as we pray. The videos are very helpful and Pete Greig is a great communicator. If you would like to learn how to pray this is a good place to start. So why not watch a short video each week.
Here is a link to week one “Why Pray?” with some additional questions and information.
Here are a few videos and pictures about Shipping and especially the Seamen’s Christian Friend Society. Colin Jenkins who has been in Burnside many times is a missionary in the port of Cork.
Colin’s updates are always a fascinating read, the full update is below but here is a pressing need from Colin.
“My Kia car is back on the road again with a new radiator, and running well. But since there's almost 246,000 km on the clock and she's over 7 years old we're hoping to change sooner rather than later.
The good news is that SCFS are behind us, and also are applying for a grant from a Seafarers Trust (ITF). It looks like we might just need to trade in the Kia and then the rest will be made up by SCFS and the grant. However, if any of you feel led to help you could send the support to SCFS and simply designate your gift as 'for Colin's new car'. Thanks everyone, even £5 or €5 makes a big difference.” (Bank details can be provided if anyone would like to help.)

Little known story of a shipwreck from these shores 40yrs ago. On 8 Feb 1981, the Burgundia ran ashore on the mouth of the Bann near Portstewart. Departing Coleraine for Portugal with 400 tonnes of potatoes. It lay for a month, the spuds were saved but it never sailed again. I wonder does anyone remember this?
