Update from Tim Wilson

Hi folks, Firstly, apologies for the lack of updates about the work in Burkina this season – it’s not that the work isn’t happening, it’s just that I’ve been struggling to write… Secondly, thanks for your continued support for the work, and myself – both in prayer, and financially – it really is very much appreciated. So, here’s a bit of a synopsis of the past season… As you may have seen on the news, the security situation in Burkina…

Peru 2019

Two people from our congregation are members of a team visiting Peru this summer: Alex Boyd and May Green. The team is being led by locals David and Yury Fleming and includes people from a range of churches in Northern Ireland. From 20th July the team will be in Tacna in the south of Peru, where John and Lourdes Brew of Irish Baptist Missions, Yury’s parents, will accommodate them. They plan to visit a girl’s shelter, help a local church…

Mums of Little Ones

‘Mums of Little Ones’ takes place on the last Thursday of each month. It is an opportunity for mums to come together to join in a time of fellowship and share in the highs and lows of parenting over a cup of tea and some treats. We finish the evening with someone sharing a bible verse that has been of significance or something they have read, followed by a time of prayer. In this time we pray for our children,…

CB:kids Summer

We have always found that the Holiday Bible Club offers a chance to reach out to children who wouldn’t normally attend our Children’s ministries and tell them of the great love of Jesus. It also helps strengthen friendships within our church family and provides an opportunity to connect with new people. Last July saw the first HBC in our new building. Epic Explorers was a great week with many people contributing to its success. We were thankful for the children…

Simon and Jayne Gibson

A few months ago we began collecting old and unused Lego. A great donation came from a number of individuals and churches, including Carrick Baptist, which we are really thankful for. This collection was with the aim of running Lego based Bible clubs throughout Cavan. In January we booked a community centre and advertised the club in local schools in Belturbet, Ballyconnell and Newtowngore. Very quickly we were full and over subscribed! Again we booked the community centre for another…

Shankill Christian Fellowship – Update

We have been greatly encouraged by the work at SCF over the past few months. In January we began the year with an outreach event, SCF Fit. Around thirty people have been attending the (eight week) event aimed at addressing physical, mental (and most importantly) spiritual health. We are thankful to those from Carrick Baptist who have come along and shared both their professional advice and their faith with those who attend on Tuesday evenings. We are really looking forward…

Emily Peru Hope Trust

First, thank you for the very generous Christmas morning collection. We plan to use this towards a three-year cycle to replace the school uniform of every child at Casa Hogar El Amor de Dios (about 60 children). Funds were provided for a Christmas present for every child there, and also at New Hope (48 children). Contributions towards Summer Camps for the children in their (current) summer holiday were added. We have moments of turbulence as we try to learn to…

Love

14th February is a day when we celebrate love. We often define love by an experience or a feeling. We tend to think more about what love is rather than what love does. I wonder how many people define love by who God is? In 1 John 4, we read, beloved, let us love one another, for love is from God, and whoever loves has been born of God and knows God. Anyone who does not love, does not know…
