Faith is not a static thing. Jesus is not static—he is alive and he is on the move! He is not where we left him and he invites all of us to run after him.
Frog Orr-Ewing’s talk on “Being a God Chaser” last weekend has given us much to ponder this week. Are we pressing forward? Are we asking God where he is going so that we can keep in step with him? Are we including God in our plans? Frog encouraged us to run to the world around us and tell them the gospel. “The wounded world needs the wounds of Jesus.”
This Sunday we will go back to studying Exodus, specifically looking at chapter 17 and the first seven verses. Here we will see the people of Israel grumbling against God yet again and learn how God provided for them—yet again.
Tomorrow a Men’s Breakfast will be held at The George Inn on Eton High Street from 8:15 – 9:30 am. Norm Beers will be leading the discussion on ambition and faith. If you are around, please come!
Our next prayer evening will take place on Wednesday, 18 May at Beech House, Hermitage Lane, SL4 4AZ. All are welcome!
Please be in prayer for the Pastoral Search Committee who have begun the important work of identifying a full-time rector for our fellowship.
As a new missional church in Windsor and Eton, we are committed to being rooted in scripture, growing deep in faith and reaching Windsor and Eton for Christ. We started two years ago as a lay-led initiative meeting in a home and have grown to 50+ regular attendees meeting at a local community centre. We have reached the point where we want to appoint a full-time lead minister.
If you would like to receive a more detailed brief on the position, please email Curt Hopkins at email@example.com.
We are passionate about the spread of the gospel in Windsor and Eton and growing our community and look forward to finding an excellent Bible teacher and evangelical leader to guide us in our mission.
Job applications should be submitted by 30 April.
In the same way that many people take exercise to strengthen their physical muscles, we all have spiritual muscles that need flexing too. Our current series of Big Questions helps us do that. Last week, Sam Allberry looked at the question, “Is death the end?” The answer, taken from the life of Jesus, is a resounding “no!” If you missed the talk, you can listen online here.
This Sunday, Oliver Strange will lead us in exploring another question: “If God really exists, why doesn’t he prove it?” Please join us for this talk and holy communion.
Wednesday, 16 March will be our next Prayer Focus evening. All are welcome to come together for an encouraging hour of prayer. We will meet at 7:30 for 8 pm at Beech House, Hermitage Lane, SL4 4AZ.
On Palm Sunday, 20 March, Jack Hopkins will be baptised. Please be in prayer for guests who have been invited and for the logistics of the service.
On Good Friday, 25 March, Churches Together in Windsor will be having a Good Friday Witness service at 12 noon on Peascod Street across from the Post Office. All are welcome.
The Windsor Fellowship
In the run-up to Easter, Windsor Fellowship will be having a series of three talks entitled “Big Questions.” These sermons will be aimed at answering some of the most common objections to the Christian faith and will be an excellent opportunity for all of us to invite friends.
However, besides inviting friends, this is a great chance to ask people “if you could ask God one question, what would it be?” It could be the starting point for some very interesting conversations!
So, this Sunday we will be finishing off our series in Mark 10. Then we will look at:
- Is death the end? 6 March
- If God really exists why doesn’t he prove it? 13 March
- Why do so many people suffer so much? 20 March
Saturday, 27 February – Men’s Breakfast at the George Inn on Eton High Street. 8:15-9:45 am. Dirk Booy of World Vision will be leading a discussion on Christians and poverty.
Sunday, 28 February – Please plan to stay after the service for a church-wide meeting where we will update you on the direction of the Fellowship.
Our next prayer focus evening will be on Wednesday, 16 March at 7:30 pm. Please come along to Beech House, Hermitage Lane, SL4 4AZ and join us in prayer for WF, our community and the world.
Just as an update, there were 14 young people at the social last Friday. It’s exciting to see God at work in the lives of these teens!
