Dear Friends,

I was remembering this morning about the Festive Community Services we held this time last year at both our Great Yarmouth and Lowestoft Churches.  Particularly the one at the Great Yarmouth Church was full to overflowing with people sitting and standing out in the Corridor.  What a difference 12 months can make! What a year 2020 has been! Our Festive Community Service will be different this year, it will take place in our homes over Zoom, with participants pre-recording carols, readings and a message.  So you will need to provide your own festive treats and drinks!  We will screen the service on Zoom and Facebook Live at 7pm this Saturday.  It has been different this year, but God is still God, He is still in control, He does not change, and He is still with us.  That is the promise as we go into another uncertain year of 2021.

I would like to encourage you all to read the Seasonal Year End Messages from the Presidents of the Seventh-day Adventist Conferences and Missions in the UK.  Click here for them.  

Season greetings and blessings to you all in the name of our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ.

- Pastor Mark Borrett
