The hymn ‘Blessed Assurance’ talks of ‘echoes of mercy, whispers of love’ and all of us need to hear these on a regular basis. Love is so needed in our world and the constancy and unchanging nature of God’s love needs to be shared with those who don’t know Him.

As part of our desire to be with God in the community and with God for the community, we, along with other local churches, will be giving out hearts on Easter Saturday – knitted hearts, crocheted hearts, decorated wooden hearts. Following on from our ‘Advent Angels’, we hope to inundate our local area with these hearts which for us are God’s ‘whispers of love’. If you can help by knitting, crocheting or decorating a wooden heart, please contact us and bring us the hearts so we can distribute them around the villages for people to take home a visible reminder that God loves them.

At Easter, we celebrate that God so loved the world that He gave His only Son, Jesus, so that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have everlasting life. (John 3:16) What better way of celebrating than sharing His love? We’ll be distributing the hearts on Saturday 3rd April, leaving GPCC at 10 a.m. Please ensure all hearts are given to us by Wednesday 31st March at the latest.
