Martin’s September Message
It is with a touch of sadness that I write this message, as I will be retiring as the Minister of the Haven Christian Centre due to the effects of Long Covid.
From October the 4th I will be out of work for the first time since I left school in 1973. Yes, I am looking forward to relaxing and hopefully recuperating from Covid 19 but it is also for me a step into the unknown, I have worked all my adult life. It is a time of change. For a lot of us as we come out of lockdown there will be change and uncertainty about one’s future.
A few mornings ago while I was having a quiet time with the Lord, I was reminded of a song we used to sing, “He’s got the whole world in His hands, He’s got the whole world in His hands.” It’s amazing to think that the God of the universe holds the entire world in His hands. Those are some big hands!
But, it’s so much more personal when you realise that the God of the universe holds not just the world, but your future in His hands. He has good plans for me, you and our families. There is no better place that your future could be than in the hands of the God who made the heavens and the earth.
The Bible tells us that God’s strong hand takes hold of our hands and He leads us into a glorious future. Psalm 73:23-24 reminds us, “Yet I still belong to You; You hold my right hand. You guide me with Your counsel, leading me to a glorious destiny.”
As one old preacher put it, “we don’t know what the future holds, but we know who holds the future.” May we step out, confidently into the future putting our hand in God’s hand and allowing Him to lead and guide us.
It has been a pleasure and a blessing to have been the minister of the Haven Christian Centre for the last 6 years. May God bless you and keep you safe.
As from Sunday 15th August you will not have to pre-book you place for Sunday Worship, but we will ask you to use the Track and Trace app or sign in when worshipping with us.
Please wear a face covering when entering the Church, once seated it is your choice to remove your face covering or continue to wear one.
We look forward to once again to welcome you to Haven Christian Centre.
