Our main focus over the last 18 months or so has been running a community meal on Fridays, serving people from the estate with a free meal. This has been going really well and each week we serve around 50 or more meals. There are many that come regularly and over this time many relationships have been built with people from the estate. Please pray that relationships would continue to grow and that through us God would draw people to himself. Pray too for all those who work so hard to make it possible.
We are also encouraged by some recent additions to our fellowship who have moved into the area and begun to get involved in church life. So we give thanks for new friends with whom we can share in this ministry. Pray they would know God's blessing as they make Hartlepool their home.
Pray too for the church's financial situation. Our minister Tim Hyde has been with us for nearly 8 years on a part time basis up to now, but this year has reduced to 25% stipend in order to make the books balance. Prayer for guidance and provision both for the church and for Tim in the coming year.
Miinister: Rev Tim Hyde
