'If you love me, you will keep my commandments. And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another Advocate, to be with you forever. This is the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it neither sees him nor knows him. You know him, because he abides with you, and he will be in you.'
A big THANK YOU to everyone who came and supported the Wisewood Community Singers’ concert on Saturday 15th June. We raised £402 for Toilet Twinning (with another £30+ being raised from coffee on the Sunday morning following the concert) and MHA Music Therapy. A big thank you to everyone who helped on the night; singers, people who performed poems and solos, Colin and Stuart on sound, Lucy for playing and the people who helped in the kitchen. Community Singers are back this week, when we are beginning to learn a Joseph medley. All are welcome to come and have a sing! Katie.

Rev’d Dr David Lees will be received into Full Connexion and Ordained (Katie is going and will take pictures!) on Sunday 30th June. David has written this prayer (which has been included in the Conference Handbook for this year) for the church as we prepare for Conference: "Holy God, as we gather from land and sea, reveal yourself in our midst. Give us the grace we need to focus on you. In our discussion and debate, be our wisdom; in our meeting and community, be our fellowship; in our rest and calm, be our refreshment. Meet us in our needs with your strength and in our comfort with your challenge. This we pray in the name of the one who calls and loves us, Jesus our Christ, our Lord and Saviour. Amen."
