Dear Friends,

I start this newsletter with the sad news that Monica Eronmosele passed away late last Saturday night. Monica is survived by her husband, Godwin, and her children, Abigail aged 16 and Israel aged 14. The family have recently been coming to the Lowestoft Church. Please uphold them in your prayers. 

Yesterday we were informed that face coverings are once again compulsory in places of worship unless a person is exempt. Here is part of the statement from the South England Conference of Seventh-day Adventists, “On Wednesday evening the Prime Minister gave a press conference in which he introduced the latest response to the growing Covid-19 infection rates due to the omicron variant.  Plan B, as it is known, brought back a raft of restrictions to protect the Christmas holidays.  Currently the Omicron strain of Covid infection rate is doubling every 2.5/3 days.  As part of Plan B the government has extended the types of venues that will legally be required for facemasks to be worn which will include places of worship.  These new regulations come into effect from Friday, 10th December.  Everyone attending Church, unless exempt, will be legally required to wear a face covering.“ Here is also a quote from the BBC. “Face coverings are now compulsory in most indoor venues in England, under measures to tackle the Omicron variant. The new rules require people to wear masks in locations including theatres, cinemas, places of worship, museums and indoor sport stadiums. Further changes start next week under the government's move to so-called Plan B Covid restrictions”. We will continue to monitor the latest situation.

There has been allot of discussion this week in the UK news around leadership and integrity. Leadership and integrity are important at all times, but even more so during very difficult times where compromise can happen very easily. For a biblical perspective on leadership I commend to you an article I read this week in our ministry magazine. In it, "Solomon gives wise counsel to those who wish to guide others who are within their circles of influence". The article can be found at https://www.ministrymagazine.org/archive/2007/11/leadership-principles-from-proverbs. There are lessons for all of us. 

Our services this Saturday/Sabbath are listed below, both at the Great Yarmouth Church and the Lowestoft Church. Zoom and Facebook will be live-streamed from the Great Yarmouth Church. This Sabbath Pastor Steven George will be speaking at Great Yarmouth. Pastor Mark Borrett will be speaking at Lowestoft, which will include Communion. Our Community Carol Service at Lowestoft is also this Saturday/Sabbath at 4pm.
 
May the Lord bless you and keep you, 

Pastor Mark
