It is with sadness that we announce the death of our minister Chris on Monday 3rd June, following a sudden and unexpected deterioration in health. Please pray for the family and both Portishead and Nailsea Churches as they come to terms with losing Chris in this way.

Thank you to everyone who came to share in the service of Thanksgiving which was held at Nailsea Methodist Church at 2pm on Monday 17th June. Donations in memory of Chris will be given to Karen Action Group, a registered charity working on the Thai/Burma border. Chris had visited the Karen several times in the past, particularly when they were under great persecution and there was a need to take aid. As you may know the situation in Burma is beginning to change for the better. The Karen Action Group is now hoping to return to its original ethos which is to provide training for Christian Ministry. Donations will be given specifically towards the building of a new Bible School. Donations to date have amounted to £1,500.00 - thank you so much for your generosity. It is still possible to make a donation directly to KAG online.
