Grove Booklets

Grove Books are a series of short "evangelica and Anglican" books on a wide range of topics and which can be a very good introduction to a subject. Over the years I have bought a good number of these and would like to make them available for borrowing to anyone who wants to borrow one or more.

A thank you from Open Doors

Dear Friends at All Saints - Mattishall,

Thank you so much for your kind gift of £704.00 to strengthen our persecuted church family around the world who are risking it all to follow Jesus. Thanks to your prayers and support, our brothers and sisters know they are not alone and can stand strong in their faith.

Among those helped is Pastor Jonathan and his church in Indonesia. On 13 May 2018, a bomb was detonated during a service, killing eight people and wounding five. Seven years earlier, the pastor attended a seminar run by Open Doors local partners to prepare believers for persecution – and he believes this helped him stand strong following the attack.

“It seemed like the seminar was prepping me for the explosion that occurred seven years later, so thank you Open Doors,” says the pastor, who adds: “I want to express my gratitude to my brothers and sisters who have prayed for my church and congregation. I can't repay your kindness. May God bless and reward you abundantly.”

May the Lord fill you with His Spirit and surround you with His love.

Your sister in Christ,

Henrietta Blyth

CEO, Open Doors UK and Ireland
