This month’s Bible passage
Message from Richard,
Hi, May I take this opportunity to wish all supporters, friends and prayer part-ners of WTCC a Happy and God blessed New Year.
I now know I am getting older as each year seems to pass more quickly – but where did 2014 go. It was a really exciting year for us in WTCC.
Not only did we see more volunteer chaplains join us but our staff changed and we seem to be growing in new directions all the time. This new year sees the start of chaplaincy at Meadowell Surgery, please pray for Colin as he starts this new role in a new surgery.
God has continued to surprise us and even over the Christmas period He has prompted people to con-sider chaplaincy as part of their ministry. I have the delight of speaking with two more potential chap-lains at the start of this year. Pease pray for God’s guidance for us all during these prayerful conversa-tions.
What does 2015 hold for WTCC – well we don’t really know what is going to happen – but we start the year full of excitement and anticipation as we wait to see what God will do. We constantly seek to only do what God has asked us – no more, no less. But we wait on Him to show us what this coming year will reveal. Please continue to pray for all involved in WTCC from the trustees’ right through to Street Angels and GAD.
Also, as they say, watch this pace for ministry activities and opportunities, we are planning another Nightvision event – details to follow.
So we have started 2015, I would ask you to pray for us in WTCC that this year we may be glory and praise to the name of our Saviour, and that each of us may be walking and serving where He has called us to be.
May He bless you this New year and though out 2015. Thank you for your continued support – you do make a huge difference to Watford through WTCC.
Yours in His service
Message from the Chairman:
Technological faults (otherwise known as a digger through the cables) have meant that my New Year’s Greetings to you will be somewhat delayed but they are none-the-less sincere. The start of a New Year is always a good time to take stock take stock of what happened last year, where we are now and where we hope to be in the year ahead. Now I am sure that many New Year’s resolutions have melted away but I hope the one which says, in these or similar words, "I will try to do more to help the chaplaincy next year" is still alive and active.
Taking stock is also a good time for me to recognise and thank so many people for all that they do for the Chaplaincy, or rather for the people the Chaplaincy serves. So on behalf of the literally thousands of people touched by the work of the Chaplaincy – THANK YOU – most sincerely.
