A few people have been asking about Chris’ ministry schedule over the next couple of months. So, here is a brief overview of the things that we know about at the moment. Please be aware that if you would like Chris to come along to an event you are planning, it is best to talk to him approx. 6-8 weeks in advance.
This is a good map for giving you a feel for the distances Chris travels between the small Churches in Iceland. Churches that Chris actively supports include: Selfoss, Westman Islands, Kirkjulækjarkot in Fljótshlíð, Höfn í Hornafirði, Vopnafjörður, Ísafjörður, Stykkishólmur, and Keflavík.
Schedule for January/February/March
Jan 3 – 5 Höfn í Hornafirði: fellowship and preaching.
Jan 10 Reykjavík: preaching at Fíladelfía (youth meeting).
Jan 12 Selfoss: preaching at the Sunday service – part 1.
Jan 16 -17 Keflavik: attending Church leader’s meeting.
Jan 19 Selfoss: preaching at the Sunday service – part 2.
Jan 31 – 2 February Westman Islands: fellowship, teaching and preaching.
Feb 5 -10 Poland: attending Royal Rangers Euro leaders conference.
Feb14 -16 Ísafjörður: fellowship, teaching and preaching.
From the beginning of March Chris will be employed by the Pentecostal Church in Keflavík on a part-time basis. Chris will be assisting the Pastor of the Church in a range of development activities. More about that in a future blog post. During his employment with Keflavík Church, Chris will continue to support the country Churches around Iceland.
Projects in progress
Over the past year, Chris has been instrumental in developing six men’s groups around Iceland. Using the Christian movie ‘courageous’ as a platform to get men thinking afresh about their role in the family and in local communities, Chris has encouraged small groups of men to meet regularly to discuss issues of importance to them and to work through the Courageous study material. All the groups will be meeting up 7 – 9 March in Stykkishólmur to enjoy a weekend of fellowship, teaching and backwoods activities.
That’s all from us for now. Until next time, be blessed and love God. Nothing. Else. Matters.
