Dear Friends,


This year the CHF circuit has assigned June to Bible Month (we will however make time to celebrate the Church’s birthday, Pentecost, on Sunday 9th June).


We will be focusing on the letter to the Colossians on the other four Sundays and mid-week Bible Studies. Most of our preachers spent a Saturday recently at Westminster Central Hall preparing for Bible month; can I thank them all for their service and faithful dedication.


So why does the Methodist Church recommend that we spend 30 days on a single biblical book? In a video that can be found on the Methodist website here were some of the reasons given by those interviewed:


“To open up the Bible to everyone”

“It allows us to go deeper”

“To see people grow and develop”

“Because it is life-changing”


In the book of Proverbs (29:18) is says:

When there is no clear prophetic vision, people quickly wander astray. But when you follow the revelation of the word, heaven’s bliss fills your soul”                  (The Passion Translation)


Let us pray this June for MORE revelation of the word as we seek God’s vision for our churches and circuit!


Every blessing to you,


Mark Davenport
