THIS WEEK AT AIC
View this email in your browser
Dear <<First Name>>, 

Across the world, the integrity of our sources of news and information, our political leaders, our celebrities, even religious leaders have been called into question. Traditional social institutions seem untrustworthy as well. Who can you trust these days?

This week, our story from Elijah poses exactly that question, in dramatic fashion. Elijah faces off against the competing prophets of another God and says, "Who can you trust, Yahweh or Baal?"

Spoiler alert: The answer is God, who hears Elijah's prayer and answers him. It's God you can trust.

You knew that already, though, didn't you? Yet somehow we still struggle to trust God over ourselves, over our own endeavours and even the institutions of this world.

Sunday, we'll talk more about that struggle to trust God, together. Join us.


Faithfully,

Pastor Jennifer

West End Refugees Welcome
 
AIC is partnering with Bloomsbury Baptist Church and the Quakers to sponsor a refugee family under the Home Office Community Sponsorship Scheme. Plans are moving quickly, and we anticipate welcoming this family before Christmas. Jonathan Miller is leading the effort, and will offer a detailed update on Sunday during worship about how you can be involved. You can e-mail him (jonathan@amchurch.co.uk) for more information.
Stuart Tower Tour
 
In addition to the manse, the church also owns a flat in Maida Vale, where Jonathan Miller currently resides. After a water leak, the Council has approved a significant overhaul of the flat. If you’ve never visited, Jonathan invites everyone to a “before” gathering on Sunday, October 13 after worship to see its current state—to be followed by an “after” gathering to show the completed works in the new year.
