Spring Outing

We are off to see spring in the country this Saturday. Looks like we missed the best of the blossoms, but still a lot of nice stuff to see and gorgeous weather.

Jinju Church update

Volunteering starts again on 26 January. With the new year now begun all of the cell groups are getting back into action and some new groups have started. We urge and exhort everyone to join one of the mid-week groups. There are daytime and evening groups on various days, so we are sure you can find a comfortable place somewhere. Talk to Simon about joining a group.
The leavers party is set for 23 Feb. This is a sad time when we bid farewell to those brothers and sisters moving on to God's next task. But we look forward to the English speakers arriving in Jinju who will be looking for a place to call their spiritual home. Jinju International Christian Fellowship would love to see you.

Prayer Day Report

We had a great day. Hope you like the video.

Day of Prayer

On Saturday 13 November we shall go away up into the mountains for a day devoted to prayer and worship. We'll spend time meditating upon how awesome our father God is. We shall spend time raising our voices in praise and crying out in prayer. We'll ask Father God for guidance and seek to draw closer to him.

It will be a day for letting his spirit wash us clean, and filling our hearts and minds with his presence. It will be wonderful. And you are invited.

Australian Visitors

On Sunday 3 October we had an exciting visit from the grandchildren of the first missionaries, who brought the gospel to this part of Korea.

It was absolutely wonderful to have this link with the recent past, with the people who started the church in the city of Jinju. And who brought Christianity to this part of Korea. It was great to see how the memory of what their forebears did and how much they sacrificed was honoured by the Korean Christians. It was also sobering for those from long-established Christian nations to be reminded how recently this happened.

New Groups

We are starting a Bible Study group (home group, cell group) on Thursday evenings at 6.30. This is in addition to the Bible Study on Sunday after lunch.

We are also trying to start a mid-week morning group for all the people who work in the evenings.

Please let the pastor know if you would like to be part of any of these groups.
