    Many of our readers will be wondering what happened to the LifeNews video this week.
    This has become a regular feature with Pastor Charlie popping up 'on location'
    somewhere in Suffolk to present a short clip together with an invite to
    join us during the Sunday Service.
    Regretably, and with heavy heart, we have to report that Pastor Charlie
    is no longer Lead Pastor at RoL Church.
    We are going to miss his chearful smile and meaningful stories of his life experiences
    but I'm sure you will join with us in wishing Charlie and his family
    every best wish for their future, wherever God leads.
    We are delighted to announce the Dedication
    Cassia Elizabeth Charlie Wells
    To the Lord
    Which took place during last Sunday's service.

    One of John's many favourite scripture verses:
    Psalm 71:5 and 17 (NIV)

    "For you have been my hope, Sovereign Lord,
        my confidence since my youth...
    and to this day I declare your marvelous deeds."

    Bill Wilson in Times Square

    "Most of you know New York City was the center of the Covid pandemic in the world last year.
    We’ve gone through a lot of tough time... Many of you supported us. I’m very grateful.
    New York City is now open.
    New York Police Department invited Metro World Child to join the city
    reopening celebration on June 9 in the iconic Times Square.
    This is probably the first time a Sunday School is being conducted there!
    As a church we have supported  Metro World Child and hold Pastor Bill in high regard.
    Pre covid, 20,000 children attended Metro Sunday schools in New York and for the first time
    a full Sunday school program was staged in Times Square New York yesterday.
    Unfortunately this was only posted on facebook on 9th June so we can't join in "Live"
    but this link provides more information for our Facebook readers.
    Please pray this event touched hearts with the Good news and hope of the gospel to all
    and pray for the next 40yrs of outreach through Metro Sunday school in New York.

    A Message from Jacqueline Hopkins


    There is power in my praise.

    “It’s time to sing and shout for joy! Go ahead, all you redeemed ones, do it!
    Praise him with all you have, for praise looks lovely on the lips of God’s devoted lovers.”

    Psalms 33:1 TPT

    Raise the roof with powerful praise.


    “Lord, just singing about you makes me strong!
    So I’ll keep shouting for joy to Jacob’s God, my champion.”

    Psalms 81:1 TPT

    Praise is like dynamite, it shatters the enemy.


    “Play the guitar as you lift your praises loaded with thanksgiving.
    Sing and make joyous music with all you’ve got inside.”

    Psalms 33:2 TPT

    Praise is a lifter of the soul.


    “Break forth with dancing!
    Make music and sing God’s praises with the rhythm of drums!”

    Psalms 149:3 TPT

    The rhythm of drums sets your heart on fire.

    A Rose

    “I am truly his rose, the very theme of his song.
    I’m overshadowed by his love, like a lily growing in the valley!”

    Song of Songs 2:1 TPT

    This beautiful, fragrant rose brings to mind the powerful sweetness of love,
    which is the essence of God.
