Welcome to the Spring edition of our church magazine.
The Greek word ‘ekklesia’ means an ’assembly’ or as we call it ‘church’. The word is not linked to a specific place but indicates that we are part of the whole body of Christian believers, wherever they may be.
‘And God placed all things under His feet and appointed Him head over everything for the church…’ Ephesians 1 v 22.
Many of our people in Wellington are involved in short and long term Christian service – not just in Ballymena but right across the globe. We also have the privilege of supporting others where, in years gone by, links have been established.
Have a look at the world map on the centre pages and be amazed where our people, and those we support, are working. Learn of the difficult and challenging conditions Sergey and Yulia face in Ukraine and how Metka and Goran are spreading the Gospel in Slovenia. Rachelle recently spent time in the slums of Delhi while others are working much closer to home. Each is our brother or sister in Christ.
‘And pray for us too, that God may open a door for our message, so that we may proclaim the mystery of Christ…’
Colossians 4 v 3
We have recently been considering the topic of prayer in Wellington. Let each of us resolve to put into practice these words from Colossians 4 and uphold in prayer those involved in building His Kingdom, wherever in the world they may be!
