Count Your Blessings

Since the Lockdown started, back in March, members of our church have been doing a weekly collection of food for the homeless and needy people in Bournemouth - pictures of car boots, laden with carrier bags are posted regularly in the church WhatsApp Chatroom, along with messages  of thanks. 

I am so grateful to belong to such a generous fellowship - many of those who contribute are elderly, or shielding, or on limited incomes - but they still want to share God's blessings with others. This Sunday is our Harvest Thanksgiving. We're having an extra special Food Collection this week, and our livestream service will have a Harvest Theme.

  1. How wonderful!
    Today a team from my church walked 5km or 10km to raise money for our many programs with the oldest being 86! Together we have raised over $10,000.00
    We are still running our breakfast program and we are trying to figure out a way to do our Winter dinner program on a takeout basis. Making the dinner isn't the issue - it's finding somewhere for our guests to eat as we will not be allowed to have them in the Hall as per usual. Our volunteers come from all age groups and we have been trying to concentrate on the under 50's but we have been overwhelmed with offers from all our seniors who really want to be back out there helping others. People really do rise to the occasion.

    1. In these difficult times, it is so encouraging to hear of people who are working hard to help others. I know our local charity shops have many volunteer staff who are 'seniors' and they have to balance the need for help with health risks. God bless all that you are doing to serve those in need.


Always glad to hear from you - thanks for stopping by!
