Message for February 2018

‘Living in the kingdom of God’

Welcome to 2018 and the February ‘letter from the clergy’. We seemed to have entered the New Year with plenty of news of God moving amongst us.

It is with great pleasure that we welcome Rachel Monk who will be joining us on February 4th as our new Youth Worker. Rachel will be helping encourage and build the Christian faith of 11-14 year olds in our Parish. She is employed by Heartland Youth for Christ for work in St David’s and St John the Baptist, Whitwick and will be helping with our work at Castle Rock High School, helping with a new Sunday group for 10-14 year olds at St David’s and looking to start a Youth Group during the week.  Rachel has written a piece about herself at the end of this magazine. Please take time to read it, pray for Rachel and introduce yourself to her. She will need the support of our congregation.

By the time you have read this we will have finished the 3 days of visit to Coalville by Bishop Martyn. I am praying that God will move amongst us and encourage our communities in their journey with Christ. It is at this time that we should be

encouraged to talk about our faith story to those who ask and to help them encounter God through his Church at St David’s and our welcoming community. Please pray for those who have been touched during Bishop Martyn’s mission. We hope to run Alpha courses helping people explore the Christian Faith and the impact a living Jesus Christ has on our lives.

Every month a few of our congregation meet to pray for St David’s, discern God’s will for our Church and to encounter Jesus in a deep way. We have been led during the last two years to form a team of people who could offer prayer during our morning Communion services to those of us who sometimes need the reassurance of God’s love in our lives as difficult circumstances might arise. It is by having someone pray for us that we are better able to hear from God and to know his work in our lives to bring wholeness and healing, emotional, spiritual, social and physical well being through the grace of Christ.

The Team have recently completed a course with advice and guidelines and help from David Newman, the Warden at Launde Abbey and our former Archdeacon of Leicester and Rector of Emmanuel, Loughborough. The Church’s ministry of Wholeness and Healing is a continuation of the ministry of Jesus in the power of the Holy Spirit and we will be introducing this and the team at one of our services in the near future. Look out for them!

Jesus cried out to the crowd “Let anyone who is thirsty come to me, and let the one who believes in me drink. As the scripture has said, 'Out of the believer's heart shall flow rivers of living water.'” May we continue to see this from St David’s in 2018.
