PRESIDENTIAL
PASTORAL LETTER
Dear friends,

I trust you and your loved ones are keeping safe and enjoying the warm weather. Our Intercessors and Prayer Ministries Coordinators are meeting this weekend for their annual Prayer Retreat. We welcome Dr’s Donnette Blake and Samuel Telemaque into the South England Conference territory as they lead out in this retreat.

Following this retreat, we will launch our Hope Beyond evangelistic campaign on 17th – 23rd July 2022. This will be an in-person meeting, but live-streamed from the Holloway SDA Church and the zoom details are ID: 919 4553 8924 with PW: 670468. It can also be viewed on our SECmedia YouTube channel.

We are also happy to work with the BUC Evangelism Department in running a series of evangelistic meetings that will once again be live streamed from the Croydon SDA Church. These meetings are September 10th – 17th, and our guest speaker is Dr Ainsworth Keith Morris.

As we continue to participate in Making Disciples and Building Communities by using the Discovery Bible Readings, let us use these opportunities to invite our friends to these evangelistic meetings. The Holy Spirit is active in bringing conviction to many hearts as decisions are made for Christ.

Kind regards,

Dr. Emmanuel Osei
President of the South England Conference

EVENTS
Mingling and Ministering at the Kent County Show – Pastor Alex Mareniuc
By now, we are probably familiar with the quote from the book Ministry of Healing by Ellen G. White, where we read that “Christ’s method alone will give success in reaching the people. The Saviour mingled with them as one who desired their good” (1). Another similar passage in a different book says that to reach people where they are, “we must do something out of the common course of things” (2). Seven churches in the South-East of England have come together to follow that advice and to apply the method of Jesus in reaching out to those who would not engage with us on our church premises.

COMMUNICATOR
Back and Forth – Catherine Anthony
Crossing over and then crossing back again. For me, the pandemic has been filled with a plethora of emotions that range from rage to grief to euphoria. Rites of passage were muted and needed rituals were dampened, if used at all.

Breath is Life – Dr Kirk Thomas
Professional singers and speakers and divers are some of those individuals who have learnt how to breathe deeply and to achieve good breath control. They don't take breathing for granted.

SDA Church Taunton Expansion Plans – Phil Hill, chief reporter at Somerset County Gazette
Members of a church near Taunton town centre want to build an extension to cater for its "expanding pastoral activities".

A planning application has been submitted to Somerset West and Taunton Council for a two-storey extension to the side of the Seventh Day Adventist Church premises in Mary Street. The church claims to support the local community with areas of expertise with the young, the elderly and the vulnerable.

Small Church BIG Impact – Pastor Wayne Erasmus & Pastor Max McKenzie-Cook
If you find yourself in one of the “small churches” (fewer than 100 members) across the South England Conference, you might be tempted to think that you are not measuring up, struggling too much, working hard, and making slow progress. But “small churches” outnumber larger ones within Adventism and across the Christian experience. “Small” is the most common experience, and it can be a wonderful, empowering, exciting, warm, and impactful one!

If you want to change up your “Small Church” experience for more significant impact, sign up for the “Small Church BIG Impact” Retreat presented by the Community Services and Church Growth Departments of the South England Conference. Held at the new Hay’s Wood Retreat Centre from 16 - 18 September 2022, this promises to be a weekend of fellowship, encouragement, affirmation, and support for small churches wanting to increase their mission and ministry impact!

ADVENTIST DISCOVERY CENTRE - FREEBIBLE, YOUR MISSION OPPORTUNITY
We all have ordered items online, a pizza or a book, dress, shoes, or electronic device. It was just another order for the guys at the warehouse; for the postman, it was just another delivery. But for you, for me, that box made the day!

Now, picture your neighbour or colleague at work waiting in anticipation for an item. And imagine that item was an Adventist (sponsored) product.

Picture your friend who, to get that product, went through a mini-series of Bible studies – the fundamental beliefs of your church. Even more, imagine the studies were done without the involvement of an evangelist, missionary, or pastor. The person did it all by herself, step by step.

Imagine the best part if you think that's farfetched: you are the postman for this order. You are, knocking on the door and delivering it to a smiling and surprised someone.

Over the last five years, several thousands of such deliveries have taken place. But something was missing in many of the cases. Any guesses? Let us introduce you to "FreeBible"! (What is FreeBible?)
