PRESIDENTIAL
PASTORAL LETTER
Dear friends,

I greet you in the name of our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ. I trust you are enjoying the very warm weather we are experiencing.

I am excited about the evangelistic programme taking place at the Holloway Church, which is being streamed across our entire Conference. I praise God for our intercessors who are taking a leading role in this effort. Many are making decisions to accept Christ and be baptised, to which we are thankful.

In Southend on Sea, Pastor Charles Nyambane has just baptised eight precious souls and is planning another soon. In Basildon, Pastor John Melki has baptised five souls for Christ. Pastor Shamir Khurwolah is baptising two individuals this coming Sabbath in the Harlow Church, and baptism is being scheduled for the Holloway Church. Please join me in praying for these precious souls as they begin their Christian journey with Christ.

I would also like to invite you to please pray for our Pathfinders and Adventurers as they go on their camporee. There will be about 600 Adventurers and 800 Pathfinders in total. The dates for the camporee are 22nd -31st July. Please remember the coordinators and the team that will be taking care of our young people.

I have received reports of those churches who have been engaging with their communities by conducting Health Expo’s. This is very encouraging. The Evangelism Department at the BUC has made available some attractive small gazebos that they call Tents of Hope. These tents can be used in shopping malls and other communal places as we seek to make ourselves known in our communities. Churches in Area 4 came together and used these tents at the Kent County Show and had thousands visit their booths. Please join us as we Make Disciples and Build Communities.

Kind regards,

President of the South England Conference

COMMUNICATOR
Crafting Your World for Good – Abigail Wright-Stephenson
The ministry of Jesus was liberally scattered with intentional acts of kindness. He healed lepers; he fed the hungry. Little children were drawn to him as well as those with long-term health conditions, and of course, women.

Redhill International SDA Church Adventist Health Expo – Pastor Peter Sayers
June 18, 2022, Health Expo has come and gone with great joy and happiness. Over 600 pieces of literature, including Great Controversy, Health & Wellness, and the Steps to Christ, were distributed by our young and older members. Even the Lord Mayor Councillor Frank Kelly and his Colleague were given the Health Wellness and the Great Controversy. Praise God for giving us splendid weather and success. Thanks again for Sister Hilda Dewa’s leadership, faithfulness, and hard work. Thanks, too, for the Health Expo Team. The Meetings all paid off.

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?)
