After the Storm
Coming up, on Sunday 26th September, starting at 10.30am, ‘After the Storm’. Minister, Simon explains:
“Red Lights: In March 2020, the world encountered the biggest red light most of us have ever come across. People started to succumb to an invisible threat. We stopped, or at least slowed down. The economy stumbled. People were furloughed, or worse. Then after what seemed like forever, the light changed. We’re moving on. But before we depart, maybe we should gaze at that red light and reflect on what it has shown us. Please come and join us as we do that. We are also celebrating harvest, as we do every year, that will make this event a truly joyous occasion, as well as respecting the sacrifices and losses endured throughout lockdown.”
Plain text version of leaflet content: Rosebery Park Baptist Church – After the Storm – Now lockdown is over please join us to praise and give thanks. Also celebrating our Harvest Festival. On Sunday September 26th at 10.30am. A time to remember, reflect, rejoice and look to the future. Followed by refreshments, fellowship and friendship. 812-814 Christchurch Road, Pokesdown, BH7 6DF. Masks are optional, hand gel provided, please sensibly distance.”
