Ugandan pastor to visit Sheringham
Pastor Steve Musisi from Lumpewe in Uganda will be visiting Sheringham next month, and anyone interested to meet him is warmly invited to an open evening at Lighthouse Community Church on Wednesday October 10. Tony Rothe reports.
The visit is being organised by the Reed People charity, based at Lighthouse in Sheringham, which has been working with the village of Lumpewe in Uganda to re-build and equip their primary school, and to support the ongoing work and eventual expansion of the school.
Pastor Musisi, pictured right with his family, will be in Sheringham from Monday October 8 to Monday 15 and he is happy to meet as many people as possible, especially as so many have been supportive of the work being done at the Ugandan school.
In particular, he will be available at the Open Evening on Wednesday October 10 at Lighthouse, starting with coffee from 7.30pm. All are welcome to come along. Pastor Musisi is also happy to visit community groups in the church and in Sheringham itself if his timetable allows.
His stay will culminate in the morning service at Lighthouse at 10.15am on Sunday October 14, with coffee available from around 9.45am.
To find out more about Pastor Musisi’s visit please contact Lighthouse Community Church (01263 825155) and leave a message with reception; or email Elaine Fisher at : firstname.lastname@example.org
The next “Sewathon” will take place at Lighthouse from 8am to 8pm on Saturday November 17 when a team of willing sew-ers will be making ladies’ pads, pillowcase dresses and headbands, and they hope to make boys shorts out of no longer wanted t-shirts, as well as washbags. These will all be taken out to Lumpewe when the Reed people team make their next visit in the Spring.
Anyone willing to help with this sewing marathon, even for only an hour, should contact Elaine as above.
