    Hopefully the next one will sound more cheery.. What of God’s power, to battle and win a healthy world ? In all of Boris’ statements there is no mention of God’s mighty army of angels fighting for us, and constantly beside us.

    Thank you so much Simon and Jonny and to Danny for facilitating this broadcast. It made me feel closer to the Church family. I shall be tuning in every Sunday! Loved the link to the hymns too.

    I really loved listening to this. It was GREAT. We can all feel connected to each other, & to God, although we’re not physically meeting together. God’s with us wherever we are, anyway. I didn’t know Dagnall Street was on Facebook!!!!! I’ll look you up when I’ve finished writing this. I’d love to listen to/watch the midday prayer sessions, & anything else you put on here or on Facebook. God bless all of us, we’ve got some challenging times ahead, (they’ve already started!) but if we stick close to God, & to each other, He’ll see us through.
