September 9 2023, Beit HaMashiach Announcements
|1||Welcome||Shabbat Shalom and welcome to the Beit HaMashiach community announcements. Some announcements also refer to Celebrate Messiah, which is the overall ministry that Beit HaMashiach, the Messianic Training Centre and Tikkun Olam are ministries under. Thank you for joining us in person and online. If you have any questions or prayer requests, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 9572 5792. And if you’re a visitor, please introduce yourself to any of our pastoral care team wearing name lanyards, so they can get to know you and give you a voucher for a free barista coffee. Here are the announcements for this week, which are also at beithamashiach.com and you’re welcome to take photos of the slides on the screen.|

|6||Dr Kameel Majdali speaking at both services next Shabbat 16th September||Next Shabbat 16th of September, in both services, we are having guest speaker and Director of ‘Teach All Nations’, Dr Kameel Majdali and his wife Leanne. His message in the 10: 30am service is ‘Coronation and the Anointing of the Holy Spirit.’ He will be discussing the 6th of May 2023 coronation of Charles III which was rich in Biblical meaning – it can be seen as a grand dress-rehearsal of that wonderful event, the blessed hope of the Body of Messiah when the last trump sounds – the coming of Yeshua the Messiah. And you’ll need to come along to our 2pm service to find out what he is sharing there!|
