Minister's Letter

Dear Friends,

On introducing myself in this still fairly new appointment, after sharing I look after four churches, I am often asked "which four churches"?

As I list them, whenever I say "Christchurch", the response is more often than not "that's the church with the wonderful Flower Festival"!

We are known, far and wide, by many whom we don't know, but have come into our presence, have been moved by the beautiful flowers, uplifted by the live music, encouraged by the outstanding hospitality and above all - impressed by the welcome. What a wonderful reputation our church family has, it's one I have to admit to being very proud of.

And so, here we are, another hugely successful Flower Festival under our belt, we are all extremely tired, but in a good way. It's time to reflect now on the event, the huge team effort, our church folk keeping going even though exhausted--the laughter, the hiccups, the generosity of all and the conversations made. Well done everyone, and a huge thank you - to again raise such an incredible amount in these challenging times is extremely humbling.

Now as we are all in recovery mode, can I invite you please to remember those many conversations you had with our welcome visitors. Many will have shared their challenges and health issues, their broken hearts and their fears, their joys and sorrows.

Let us continue to hold these people and their life challenges in prayer. Be specific, don't worry if you can't remember their names, God can. Pray for their healing and blessing and that God's Holy Spirit will minister to their needs.

Prayer changes things!

As a praying community, let us continue to be a blessing to all God has given us to encourage and uplift. God will bless, heal and renew as He answers our prayers.

A huge thank you for another remarkable and outstanding Flower Festival!

God bless you.

Rev Crawford Logan
