NEW CREATION NEWS - AUGUST 2019
In serving Him we are serving you – and proclaiming His ‘Good News’ since 1988
“… God is not far from each of us, for in Him we live and move and have our being ...” Acts 17 v 28
Praise the Lord! After many hours of prayer (and some difficulties!) the Lord has allowed New Creation to appoint a lovely new assistant, Kim, and to take the lease of 13, Bampton Street, next to the Nationwide Building Society. This shop offers new possibilities, having several rooms downstairs and a small area outside. It will need refurbishing and a kitchen installed. Help! (We are planning to use professionals to carry out the major works but there will still be plenty of smaller jobs you could help with). If you enjoy using a paint brush, fixing shelves, moving boxes of books, DIY, cleaning etc. please offer to help. We’d love to welcome you on board! Actual moving day will be sometime in September with (God willing) our official opening on our 31st Birthday, October 4th. Last month, at a very successful open day people were able to meet Kim, and we asked for suggestions for new ways to spread the Gospel. Please join us in prayer so that the Lord will show us which new ideas we should implement.
Living in such a beautiful part of the country, we are sure to welcome plenty of visitors this summer! Please bring them to New Creation where they can browse Christian books, CDs, greeting cards and other Christian merchandise. In many parts of the country the local Christian bookshops have closed so a visit to New Creation, not only to browse or look for something to encourage them but also to taste one of Penny’s and Kim’s range of snacks and cakes, might be a real treat
Please ask for our Loyalty Card – have 6 hot drinks and get the 7th FREE!
We have a great range of children’s and teens’ books for summer reading, either by young people themselves, or for adults to read to younger children. There will also be some special cakes for young ones to sample!
Are you aghast at all the plastic rubbish on land and at sea? At the moment ‘tearfundACTION’has a campaign to petition Coca-Cola, Nestle, PepsiCo and Unilever to take responsibility for their plastic waste. To make your voice count please take a ‘THIS IS A RUBBISH CAMPAIGN CARD’, sign it, and then return it to Tearfund, 100 Church Road, Teddington TW11 8QE.

We are so thankful for the Lord’s provision, with Kim and new premises, enabling us to continue the work He gave us thirty-one years ago, providing Christian resources for our community. (2 Corinthians 4 v 1 to 7) We are aware of all the support we receive from you, both in prayer and by using the shop and cafe. Several of our supporters also provide direct financial help, either with one off gifts or regular giving.
So, thank you, and may God bless you all this holiday time with safe travel and enjoyable experiences.
