Calling all men! Come and join us for good food and fellowship on Saturday 19th October, from 9.30am. Martyn Colley will bring a short message.
Please be praying for our politicians as they seek to negotiate a way through the current Brexit crisis. This is the prayer prayed before every session of Parliament:-
‘Lord, the God of righteousness and truth, grant to our Queen and her government, to Members of Parliament and all in positions of responsibility, the guidance of Your Spirit. May they never lead the nation wrongly through love of power, desire to please, or unworthy ideals but laying aside all private interests and prejudices, keep in mind their responsibility to seek to improve the condition of all mankind, so may Your Kingdom come and Your Name be hallowed. Amen’
May our politicians take this to heart, and look to God. May His will be done. Amen.
We look forward to welcoming Nina, our new Children and Family Worker, who is joining us for September. Nina will be helping us reach out to children and families in the local community, and we can’t wait to welcome her.

Around 30 people from ABC (including 4 children) joined around 60 people who supported and enjoyed the Starfish Malawi walk on Saturday June 8th 2019. Some walked 1.5miles (once around the Ocean Lake) and some 4 miles (a separate course). Despite the rain, many enjoyed walking in this beautiful country park at Larkfield and supporting ‘Glad Tidings Orphan Care’ by raising over £500.
We have had a fantastic time week going along to MAIDSTONE BIBLE WEEK. Dr Chris Sinkinson and Alistair McKitterick spoke on the theme, ‘Encountering God’ at the Life Church in Brewer Street on the evenings of Monday 13th to Thursday 16th May. Maidstone Bible Week is an annual opportunity to come together with Christians from across and beyond the town to worship together and hear God’s Word preached. Martyn Colley is Chair of the Bible Week, and ABC normally leads the worship on Thursday evening.
