It was good once again to host at Margam Road Evangelical Church our annual Bible League South Wales preaching Rally. Once again our preacher for the evening was the Rev John Thackway from Holywell Evangelical Church, north East Wales. Mr Thackway has been the editor of The Bible League Quarterly for over 20 years. As the name suggests, the trust stands to promote the reverent study of the holy scriptures and to resist the varied attacks made upon their inspiration infallibility and soul sufficiency as the word of God. We are thankful that a goodly number were in attendance at this meeting enjoying warm fellowship with like-minded Believers.

Literature was also available to take freely. As Mr Thackway pointed out in his introduction, The Bible League has been unpopular from its inception. This is no less true today in the light of serious departure from biblical doctrines and practices. We commend the work of the Bible League to you and pray that the Lord might keep it faithful to its founding principles.

On Tuesday the 2nd of May Pastor Pooyan (from Cheltenham) continued his series of Farsi messages at Tabernacle Cardiff. About 20 Iranians gathered, including some from Swansea, to hear him preach in their own tongue. In his first message, he drew upon a number of passages from the Scriptures, explaining the reason for suffering in this world. In the second message he preached from John 6 on Christ as ‘The Bread of Life’. These messages were greatly appreciated. There were ample refreshments and opportunity for fellowship before and after the ministry. The next preaching meeting is advertised on the Tabernacle website

Our Easter holiday Bible club took place this morning from 10.00-12.30a.m on Tuesday the 11th of April'17. An enjoyable and happy time was had by about- twenty four children and a dozen adults,as we considered the significance of this time of year led by our Pastor, Neil Pfeiffer. It was good to see the children who were the families and friends of church members as well as an Afghan family (mother and two Junior school children) who live within walking distance of the Mary Cave centre.

The activities in which the children were engaged included -

1. The singing of Easter songs and hymns. 'God who made the earth...careth for me.' 'He lives' and 'Be glad and sing'.

2. Listening to a short story about sheep with soft toy lambs as visual aids as an introduction to the memory verse which was 'All we like sheep have gone astray, we have turned everyone to his own way' from Isaiah Chapter 53 verse 6.

4. Refreshments were served before the children settled for stories suited to their age. The younger ones were accompanied by their parents into the smaller room where the adults there showed them picture story books.

5. The older children were told the Easter story taken mainly from the hymn-'There is a green hill far away' with visual aids to aid the understanding.

6. This was followed by organised games before leaving for home.

We are very grateful to those members of the church who gave of their time,energy and talents which made this event a success from the human point of view and I trust also glorifying to God.

Our Pastor preached for The Bible League Trust in East Anglia. On Thursday the 9th of March he preached at Wattisham in Suffolk and on the following day at Chelmsford Essex. We were encouraged by these meetings. On the Saturday he had the privilege of preaching at the Essex Protestant Council’s memorization rally. There is a report given of this meeting below with a photograph.

The Essex Protestant Council held their annual memory verse rally at 'Rehoboth' Strict Baptist Chapel, Sible Hedingham, on Saturday 11th March. Children from various areas gathered together and recited Isaiah 40:1-8. The standard of accuracy was extremely high showing once again the fact that the Authorised Version of Holy Scripture is not difficult for children to learn and retain in the memory. One boy was only 4 years old and recited the passage without mistake. The ladies provided a sumptuous tea, after which Mr Neil Pfeiffer of Swansea addressed the meeting. He spoke from Mark 4 on what is often called 'The Parable of the Sower.' He said that it was really a parable about the soils and he showed how the Word of God, the Seed, is received in different ways. He emphasised the important place that God's Word should have in our hearts. Finally, certificates and prizes were awarded to those who took part.
