Today we welcomed Steve Hadley (centre) as an elder of the church and prayed with him, and for him, during the service this morning. It coincided nicely with having a visiting speaker, Pastor Jackie Clarke from Oldbury, and she did the honours, accompanied by our own minister, Stewart Bloor.
The official recognition is merely confirming the role that Steve has played at TFC in recent years. God recognises and ordains really, we just confirm that fact.
Our church-based football team, Tipton Family Church FC, starts the new season tomorrow. Well, sort of, as it is a friendly. We’re playing Kingsbourne, who will be one of our rivals once the season starts proper.
Next Sunday is Easter and we’d love to see you at church. Why not pay us a visit? A friendly, but not overpowering, welcome awaits you.
