The Renewal of the World
 
With Covid-19 and the lockdown, it's almost possible to forget it's Easter weekend. And when you think about it, most people living on the planet 2000 years ago were totally ignorant of what Jesus was doing. This weekend, there are millions of people who won't register the celebration of the most important event in history. 

This makes it all the more important for we who do know and love the Lord to make this weekend BIG. It's not that we are celebrating some old, irrelevant tradition or some archaic religious belief. The resurrection of Jesus is a revolutionary hope for a completely transformed future. We are speaking of the the renewal of the world.  

This Sunday join us at: 
10am: Facebook Live welcome
10.30am: Zoom Celebration
11am: Youtube Premiere: The Renewal of the World
11.30am: Easter communion, plus Chatrooms

Also check out the Easter 2020 Playlist on our Youtube channel featuring the music and poetry of Engage Worship, focussing on the Easter message. .

Prayer for Renfrewshire 


P4R is now on Zoom, weekly on Thursdays at 7.30pm

The Haven
Pray for the residents to flourish. Pray for the staff who have been furloughed and for those who are staying on site through the lockdown.
Also ask for God to bless the Haven with finance to thrive.

Please contact Chris if you would like to help by writing an encouragement to one of the residents or staff of the Haven.  
Pray for China
China remains officially atheist, and Communist Party members number well over 70 million. But the Christian population has eclipsed this number (it is also far outstripped by Chinese Buddhists). Increasing numbers of Party members are believers. Pray that the atheism promoted for so long – and now so assiduously propagated in the education system – will finally be revealed as hollow and deceptive lies. Pray also that all followers of Christ working in state structures might walk faultlessly and be a redemptive force within the government.
