Following the recent funeral of Sis Sarah Gage who passed away on Wed 13th Jan, we would like to read the following letter of appreciation received from the Gage family. It reads:

“Dear Holloway Church,
It is with profound appreciation that we say thank you to all who have supported and prayed for our mum over the years here at Holloway. Now that she is resting awaiting the resurrection, we extend our thanks for the love demonstrated to the family. Let us be faithful and prepare for that grand reunion.

God bless and keep you all.”

Let us remember the Gage family and all families experiencing illness or bereavement at this time. It is our prayer that the Lord will grant healing and peace amongst all family members in Jesus name.

SEC Children’s Ministries
If you are a parent or carer, one of the main goals of discipline is helping children to grow more like Jesus. In order to do that well, we need to model Jesus’s love and grace in the way that we relate to our children. On 20th March from 4:30pm to 6pm, TED Family Ministries Director Karen Holford will deliver a presentation, elaborating on how responding compassionately to your child’s physical, emotional and relational needs can help them to behave better. You will also learn how to set boundaries as well as other useful tips.
