COP26

October 6, 2021

As the clock ticks down to the start of COP26 on 31st October we are encouraged as Christians to pray about the challenges of climate change and to take action as stewards of  God’s amazing creation. TearFund and Eco Congregation have a number of helpful resources to help us become better informed, give us a prayer focus, encourage us to get involved and help nudge us towards doing things differently.

Here are some helpful websites if you would like to find out more:

Proposed Twinning with St Phillip’s in Hyderabad Pakistan

October 6, 2021

This congregation offered to twin with St Phillip’s pre-Covid.  The offer of twinning has not progressed due to circumstances including the illness of the senior Pastor Rev Dr Daniel Fiaz leaving his junior, Rev Asghar Malik to support the congregation.  Daniel has recently returned to work full-time.  The congregation is active on Facebook and as a way of building links with them and supporting them, TPC Wider Church Group have suggested that our members follow “ St Phillip’s Church Hyderabad and Rev Dr Daniel Fiaz“  and make comment or like their posts where appropriate.  Bill Gray
