Jesus said, “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life’. John 8:12 (NIV)
It will soon be Easter, the time when, on Good Friday, we think of the crucifixion of our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ. We remember that He died on the Cross so that our sins might be forgiven. As the hymn says:
See from His head, His hands, His feet, Sorrow and love flow mingled down! Did e’er such love and sorrow meet, Or thorns compose so rich a crown?
But better still is Easter Sunday; when Jesus defeated death and rose again. And gave us the tremendous promise of eternal life with Him – what a promise – what a reason to rejoice this Easter time.
Now that we have been trading for a few months at Lighthouse we can start to see how things are going, and we are pleased to report that the figures show an increase in turnover compared to the same period last year, when we were at the old premises. Thank you for your support, both in using us more, but also in your prayers and financial giving.
It has been decided to update the menu, moving a few items from the ‘All Day Snacks’ to the ‘Light Lunches’. As the Sandwiches, Paninis and Toasties are served with a salad garnish and crisps, Penny and Kim think it would make more sense to serve them at lunch time. The Quiche of the Day has been removed and replaced with the Special of the Week, which will still occasionally be Quiche. We have also taken the opportunity to revise our prices, mainly upwards I’m afraid. We do find that people sometimes comment on our prices, mostly because they think we don’t charge enough!
Another change that you will see soon is to our coffee machine. We are hoping to upgrade to a new machine in the next couple of months. We are looking for one that will improve on the quality of our coffee (if that is possible) and give us the option of regular or large cups. For the moment we are still investigating which machines are available within our budget.
Would you like someone from Lighthouse to come and talk at your church? We can cover most things, from a five minute slot during the service to taking the whole service. Or, if it would suit you better, we could attend a mid-week meeting. Whichever you choose, we will be able to tell you about how God has kept us trading in Tiverton for over 30 years, and how, with His support, guidance and blessings we are still here today – Praise the Lord.
