Dear Friends,

A   Let me remind you of the new student ministers joining us this year (in alphabetical and services order)

Our priority with student ministers is to give not get – to welcome them to St Thomas’ and to see them learn and grow as well as contribute and bless. Over the years we have been privileged to see so many come and bless us – and go on to great ministries in different parts of the world.

As you meet and greet these new friends you might find out:

B   Let me plead with you to file some dates in your diary for this year.

C   I know for a fact that many in the church are feeling weaker than ever in their convictions – doubt, unbelief and even carelessness easily creep in.

5 facts:
