Norton Salvation Army Corps
2021 may not have got off to such a great start but as we continue to have hope, hope for a future where Covid-19 is under control, where we can see our loved ones once again, where we can worship together as God’s people.
Whilst we can meet in our building, we have decided that it is not advisable to do so at present. Therefore, we continue to meet online each Sunday for worship and a catch-up. This time we spend together means that we continue to join as God’s people, recognising who He is and sharing with one another as Jesus taught us to do, though with the help of modern technology.
As we worship together in the coming months, we will be going on a Journey of Renewal, exploring what it means to be accountable to one another and to God for how we, as Christians, live. Furthermore, we will be focusing our prayers on our Partners in Mission across the world. The Salvation Army is at work in 131 countries worldwide and all Salvation Army churches will be focusing their prayers on our international work throughout February. If you would like to know more about our international work, please visit: www.salvationarmy.org.
We have been overjoyed and blessed by the continued support of the general public in enabling us to help individuals and families in need over the Christmas period and since. Our Christmas appeal raised over £1,000, as well as generous donations of food, clothing and toys. We have been able to help some of the most deprived individuals in our area as a result. For this, we are very grateful and we look forward to continuing this support. If you feel we may be able to support you in some way, please do contact us.
We have started a new online Bible Study group, digging deeper into scripture and learning more about what it means to be a disciple of Christ.
Everyone is welcome to join us on Thursday evenings at 7.30pm. Please contact us for more information on how to join.
Please be assured of our continued prayers and our commitment to live out the kingdom of God in Norton, and “may the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit” (Romans 15:13, NIV).
