OUR PART IN GOD’S STORY This week at our central vision meeting, we looked at the story of God’s work at this location, where Pip n Jay’s building stands. A worshipping and missiondriven community of Benedictine monks first used the site from around 900 AD. The first recorded church name was “St Jacob in the Market” in 1193. The 19th century saw mission leading to churches planted from here across much of Bristol, and in the 1960s a group from one of those churches returned to plant today’s “Pip n Jay”.
We discussed the high and low points in our faith journeys during the time we have been here, and we would love to know more about yours. You can email email@example.com with a story, thoughts or questions. Looking forwards, we also looked at our future vision. The word “missional” was very important, and it might not mean what you expect! If you missed Wednesday’s meeting, please could you ask someone who was there about what we mean by “missional” - it’s going to be a big part of the ongoing story.
URGENT PRAYER NEEDED Caroline Thomas faces large practical challenges in her work with orphaned children in Madagascar. Please could you pray for her this week, and ask God how he may be calling you to help with practical support? Let Sally Thomas know what you find, or email firstname.lastname@example.org
