Eddie-Lyle-at-Vineyard

 

We are thrilled to welcome Eddie Lyle on Sunday 1st November at Stour Valley Vineyard.

Eddie is the president of Open Doors, UK & Ireland, an international ministry started 60 years ago by Brother Andrew to serve the most persecuted Christians in the world.

Come and be inspired in your own faith through the stories of ordinary Christians who are experiencing immense hardship in hostile, war-torn and troubled places like Syria and Iraq.

In many places, like in the Middle East and North Africa, the Church appears to be fighting for its survival. Yet, against the odds, the gospel continues to shine and amazing stories of God’s goodness are emerging, not least in the most closed countries on earth.

On this Sunday we have two services. In the morning, as usual, we meet at 10.30am in the Delphi Centre, Newton Road, Sudbury (map). Fresh coffee, cold drinks and pastries served from 10.15am. It Includes Planet Vineyard, our interactive programme for young children.

Then, in the evening, at 6.30pm we are hosting a Churches Together service at St John’s Methodist Church, York Road, Sudbury (map).

The theme is ‘Unshakeable Faith’. At this special joint service Eddie will be speaking particularly on the state of the persecuted church in Syria and the Middle East and how we can respond to their need. Coffee, cold drinks and doughnuts will be served from 6.15pm.

This day is a great opportunity to invite your friends and family to hear the gospel through a very topical and relevant issue for today’s world. We are expectant of God doing much in our hearts and minds.
