Mme Barrau who was a long standing member and supporter of our church has sadly passed away,  She was a joy to be with and will be remembered by all who new her.

Anyone who has visited our church in Bordeaux over recent years will, I am sure, remember the wonderful Mme Barrau, a delightful French lady who was amongst the most faithful members of our congregation for many many years.  It is with great sadness, therefore, that I have to announce that she died last week following a time of failing health.  Despite her diminutive stature, Mme Barrau will leave a very big gap in the heart of the Bordeaux church.
Her funeral will be celebrated tomorrow (Tuesday 2nd April) at l’Église Sainte-Geneviève, 130 Rue Bertrand de Goth, 33800 Bordeaux at 10h00.  Please pray for Mme Barrau’s family and our brothers and sisters in Bordeaux at this sad time.
God bless,
Tony

Christmas Message

Dear Friends,

I would like to take the opportunity to wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a blessed and peaceful New Year.  I know many of you are away, so I pray for safe travel, fun times and much laughter as you enjoy meeting family and friends.

I wanted to thank all of you for the most incredible nine months; for all the hard work that went into organising my Priesting, followed by the most amazing welcome and the continued support that you have offered me since I took up post in April.  I can honestly say it has been a pleasure to serve such a vibrant and loving community.

I know that 2019 will start with some challenges as the search for our new spiritual home continues, but I am confident that with faith, prayer, trust and commitment we will overcome hurdles and breakdown boundaries until we find the place that God wants us to be.

Throughout the year I have often spoken to you about God’s promises, as we walk into a new year together I offer you a promise, a verse taken from Paul’s letter to the Romans Ch 8:18

18 I consider that our present sufferings are not worth comparing with the glory that will be revealed in us.

To God be the Glory!

My love and prayers to you all this Christmas,

Charlotte


CLAY POTS we are but SHINING in the Light of the Holy Spirit

I am one of the Sunday School teachers in Bordeaux. I was very pleased with myself last week week because I had come up with the exciting idea of making clay pots because the reading was about – clay pots.

The wind was taken out of my sails somewhat when we came back into the church after Sunday School and all of a sudden, my clay pots started to look really boring because what had Janis used for her sermon for the adults ? A clay pot. Obviously !

I hoped that the collection of clay pots that I brought home with me would dry naturally. By last night, they had’t, so I had to cook them. Slowly. So slowly that I fell asleep, nearly burnt the house down and ……..  [please click here to read more]


Sports Day

After the morning Church service, 27 children between the ages of 5 and 82 descended on the Presbytery for the first ever annual sports day.

We were blessed with excellent weather – no rain, some sun but not too hot – and we were also blessed with excellent food.

After lunch there were amazingly imaginative races and competitions with 3 teams being formed – red, blue and yellow. Usually there were 4 categories for every race – younger children, older children, adult men and adult women. Everybody took part (including Jaffa, Charlotte’s dog).

As the excitement mounted there were egg and spoon (ball and ladle) races, ball throwing competitions, races involving water in leaky ……..  [please click here to read more]


Junior Jonah went for a general walkabout during our Service

The ‘little one’ became distracted by Rev’d Charlotte so Barry made sure that he was sitting comfortably to observe properly!
