Our Open Air witness continues in Droitwich on the 3rd Saturday of each month. We now regularly use a location where many people arrive from the car parks or walk between Morrisons supermarket and the town centre shops. The location also has a number of benches which allows folk to listen to the preaching while taking a rest from shopping.

Sadly our dear brother Bernard has also passed away only a month after his wife Joyce and we send our sincere condolences to all Bernard's family and loved ones at this time. He will be greatly missed by his family and friends and the children in Zambia that he and Joyce had cared for over the last 10 years but we do give thanks for his testimony that he knew his eternal home was in Heaven with his Saviour the Lord Jesus Christ. The funeral and remembrance service will take place at Witton Chapel on July 24th at 12:00 followed by the interment at Kidderminster.

It is with great sadness that we report that Joyce has passed away at Kalene Hospital after battling for some time with TB and meningitis and we pray that Bernard, and her family and loved ones will know the Lord's comfort at this time and be assured that she has been taken home to be with her Saviour.
Bernard himself is unwell and remains in the UK undergoing investigations.
Sadly it has been necessary for Bernard to close down the orphan village work that he and Joyce had established and arrangements have been made for the children to return to their home villages.
