All Nations Day! (The world comes to worship) On the 14th of October, we will be hosting our 5th annual All Nations Day celebration organised by our very own Dr. Michael Bonsi and his team! We will be worshipping the God who created the incredible di-

versity in our world with song, dance, teaching and food from every corner of the Globe. Be sure and invite family, friends and neighbours to enjoy an incredible Day !

Bishop Mark Kariuki is this years guest speaker at All Nations Day. He is the presiding Bishop and General Overseer of Deliverance Church Kenya comprising over 700 churches. A pastor to pastors, he oversees and provides fatherhood to the pastors in his ministry across the nation. Community Church Centre, St Marks Road is changing! The back wall has been removed and our fabulous electrical team have started work on updating and modernising the electrics. The ceiling in the main hall is due to be refurbished by the end of the month. Thank you so much

to all who are investing into this incredible work, and especially to the electricians who are giving the equivalent of £16,000 in labour costs. Remember to thank Derek Jackman, Christophe Jackman, Steve Pond and Dez Board for this amazing gift.

Moving Closer to the Centre

Message from the Pastor We have a vision to equip and grow a church where every person is valued, encouraged and loved so they can “Think like God, Live like Jesus and Minister in the power of the Holy Spirit.” Our passion is to help Christians develop a vibrant relationship with God the Father, through faith in Jesus Christ by the leading of the Holy Spirit. The church that God has called us to build is non-religious and incredibly fun to be a part of because it is where people can feel good about themselves and know who they are. We are a church founded on character and integrity whose number one priority is to glorify God and show His wonderful life to His wonderful world.

Matt 28:18-20 Jesus came and told his disciples, “I have been given all authority in heaven and on earth. Therefore, go and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit. Teach these new disciples to obey all the commands I have given you. And be sure of this: I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” Do you want to 11-18s The third Sunday of every get on top of your month 6:30-8pm is a time for you to finances?
