With all the talk of new supermarkets in the west and south of the city it has reminded us that people need and want access to necessities. At one time every corner had a small shop now larger stores are popular however supermarkets are increasingly returning to smaller stores. Even petrol stations with a small "supermarket" are more and more common. In 2010 with great need for the good news of Jesus Christ in our land, how much do we need a church on every corner and a Christian influence for good in every community. Lets pray that the same Lord Jesus who said "I will build my church" in Matthew chapter 16 will continue to build His church in Carlisle and beyond.
