On Thursday the 26th of January we celebrated Chinese New Year.

Our congregation is seeing an increase in the number of Chinese students coming to our services and events. Each week they bring new friends, growing their number, as they seek to share the gospel with their course mates. It is both exciting and encouraging to see and something we can learn from!

So we decided to celebrate Chinese New Year at a local restaurant, Bite East,who I can highly recommend, with
22 of us from the congregation – a mix of the older generation, families,students and international students.
Shek, one of our longer standing Chinese students who was  baptised recently, shared her testimony and favourite bible verse on paper which was handed out to each person who came along and the restaurant staff!
It was a lovely evening enjoying fellowship  and food with one and other and growing friendships.

 

Please pray that we will serve our international students well and that many of them, who have never been in a church before, will come to know Jesus as their Lord and Saviour.
