When all seems lost, where do you turn? Join us this Sunday as we see King Hezekiah cry out to God, the mighty fortress who hears our prayers. Discover the power of boldly spreading your needs before the Lord. Isaiah 37
Hezekiah received the letter from the messengers and read it. Then he went up to the temple of the LORD and spread it out before the LORD. 15 And Hezekiah prayed to the LORD: 16 “LORD Almighty, the God of Israel, enthroned between the cherubim, you alone are God over all the kingdoms of the earth. You have made heaven and earth.

All Ladies Welcome
Make sure you do not miss An Afternoon with Brian Gault MBE 2:00pm Tuesday 20th February 2024
“Have you ever felt like giving up? Then, you must meet Brian. His love for life is infectious, his determination not to allow his physical disability to
make him an outcast or socially isolated is awesome and inspirational.”
Brian is one of the survivors of the ‘miracle drug’ Thalidomide used on the UK market during the early 1960’s. To the shock of his parents, he was born with no arms.
His feet are his hands, his legs his arms, each word uttered is underlined with a gesture of his leg and foot. As he explains - ‘the only time his feet are at rest is when he is walking’.
“Brian’s story is lively, funny, challenging and moving – it has already encouraged thousands of lives.”
Please prayerfully consider inviting at least one other person to come and hear this remarkable story.
