We rejoice with Jonathan Burton and his fiancee Lizzie. They will be getting married here at Bethel on Saturday 23rd October at 11 am. We pray for God’s blessings on the day and for their future life together.
We have to pass on the news that sadly Ian Symonds passed away in the early hours of Monday morning after a battle with cancer. He was at home, with Joyce holding one hand and Steve Parker holding the other. We thank God for life and for his faith, and the knowledge that he is now at home and at peace with His Lord and Saviour. We want to pray for God’s comfort, peace and strength to be with Joyce as she comes to terms with her loss. Please can we uphold her in our prayers.
Ian’s Thanksgiving service will be at Bethel on Friday 22nd October at 11 am. There will be limited numbers able to attend.
