Using the Kenneth Street Church Car Park: 

To maximise the space available in the Kenneth Street church car park it would be greatly appreciated if drivers could adhere to the following:

  1. Please try to avoid leaving large gaps between cars.
  2. In the lane nearest the church, please use the whole lane.  Some drivers stop just before the KEEP CLEAR marking which frequently prevents access to the remaining section of the lane. 
  3. As the lanes fill, drivers are reminded that the striped area at the top of the car park is to facilitate turning when the car park is used for public parking between Monday and Saturday.  On Sundays, as everyone attending services arrives and leaves at roughly the same time, the whole area, including the striped area, should be used for parking.
  4. Drivers remaining for the time of fellowship in the hall after the morning service should ensure that their cars are not preventing others from exiting the car park.

Christian Institute Week of Prayer

 

Sunday 28th April – Our Leaders

Christians are commanded to pray “…for kings and all those in authority, that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness.”

1 Timothy 2:2

 

Monday 29th April – Society

Christians must resist the secular thinking on moral issues that is corrupting society. “…let your light shine before men, that they may see your good deeds and praise your Father in heaven.”

Matthew 5:16

 

Tuesday 30th April – Sanctity of Life

Human life is precious because we are made in the image of God. “… your eyes saw my unformed body. All the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be.”

Psalm 139:16

 

Wednesday 1st May – Schools

Schools are under constant pressure to promote LGBT ideology. “Jesus said, ‘Let little children come to me, and do not hinder them’.”

Matthew 19:14

 

Thursday 2nd May – Free Speech

Gospel freedom and free speech are being undermined by the liberal idea that everyone has the right not to be offended. “Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have. But do this with gentleness.”

1 Peter 3:15

 

Friday 3rd May – ‘Conversion Therapy’ Laws

LGBT activists want to outlaw calls to repent. This would outlaw the Gospel. “God commands all people everywhere to repent”

Acts 17:30

 

Saturday 4th May – The Christian Institute

We treasure your prayers for us. “…pray for us that the message of the Lord may spread rapidly and be honoured.”

2 Thessalonians 3:1
