An Update from the Fellowship

The Fellowship at Sion have been encouraged by events over the past six months or so.

Sufficient funds from donations and grants were raised to install a new kitchen which was completed in July this year.

Also, our members agreed that Sion should become a partner church with the "Open Doors "organisation which works to relieve the plight of Persecuted Christians around the world. Our pastor Mark decided to do a sponsored read and over six nights from 5.00 pm – 8.00pm he read out loud the whole of the New Testament!! £600 was raised for Open Doors! Thankfully he still had his voice on Sunday morning to preach God's word!

The weekly coffee mornings held on Fridays are proving a blessing, offering an opportunity to chat and relax together. Friday September 30th was the date for the Macmillan fund raising Coffee Morning and that day almost £250 was raised as friends and neighbours were drawn to the event.

Our harvest service at the start of October centred on the work of the Baptist Missionary Society providing relief to Syrian families stranded in Lebanon and over £575 was raised for the cause.

On Sunday 23rd October at 10.30 am Sion will host a guest speaker- Rev. Dr Nigel Wright who is the former Principal of Spurgeons College, London where many Baptist ministers have been trained. A Jacob's Join meal will follow the service as Sion celebrates three hundred and forty four years of Christian witness in the Rossendale Valley.

Advent and Christmas will be here soon - watch this space!
