NEW CREATION NEWS – MARCH 2019
Jesus said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the Good News to all creation.” (Mark 16 v. 15)
God is Good!
We would like to say, on behalf of New Creation, a very big thank you to everyone who gave us many generous gifts last year – may the Lord richly bless you. We are so grateful to all our wonderful donors who give, some regularly, some occasionally and some just once or twice, but all with open hearts.
For us in the shop, it is a real boost to know that so many Christians care about the work of New Creation; that they not only use us but go the extra mile. Thank you all.
Sadly, there is no news yet about a move. The shop we had hoped for turned out to be unsuitable but thank you for praying, bringing our situation to the Lord and blessing us by coming in to Number 58, Bampton Street. If you believe the work of New Creation is worthwhile and an important addition to the work of the local churches it needs your visits and prayers more than ever. The use of the internet may be easy but it takes the trade away from local shops and they close down. If New Creation is to continue here in Tiverton, providing a counselling and prayer room, a resource centre for local Christians, an opportunity for service and a place of refreshment for body, mind and spirit, it needs all the local Christians to make it their own and use it on a regular basis. We are told in Mark’s Gospel to go out and make disciples – New Creation has the resources to help you do just that!
FAIRTRADE FORTNIGHT – 25th February to 10th March
When reading how lives are changed by Traidcraft partnering it encourages us to use what we can in the café, e.g. coffee, tea, sugar, jam, and for our personal use (re-cycled toilet rolls, kitchen rolls and paper tissues etc.). We also have The Real Easter Eggs, at £3.99, which are Fairtrade and the first and only chocolate Easter Eggs to mention Jesus and the events of Holy Week on the box. All sales will benefit people in this country and overseas.
Easter is coming!
But first there is Mothering Sunday on March 31st, and we have a range of lovely cards, all carrying a verse of scripture or other words of encouragement.
Then, on April 21st, it is Easter Sunday – a time to celebrate our risen Lord and a wonderful opportunity to spread the Gospel. We have a wide range of Easter cards in the shop for you to choose from, all with an Easter message.
And if you want a Real Easter Egg, remember, as already mentioned, we stock those as well. If you don't know, the Real Easter Egg is supplied by Traidcraft and made using fairly traded chocolate. Each egg comes with a free Easter Story booklet. A portion of the price includes a charitable donation.
Please join with us as we pray for our troubled world and this beautiful part of Devon, looking forward to Easter, new life and the re-awakening of the countryside.
