Bank Card Scam   (20/12/18)

Would you sit up and take note if the police called you to say that they had arrested two ‘criminals’ for fraudulent use of your credit cards? I received exactly that call yesterday supposedly from Colindale Police Station. When the caller started asking questions about how many cards I had and with which banks I said I wished to call him back. At that point he abruptly broke off the call. This was, of course a scam the purpose of which was to get me to reveal my card details and then hand them over to an ‘officer’ who would call to collect them. A local befriending charity has also advised its volunteers that one of its clients had been scammed recently in a similar way. If you get a call like this supposedly from the police or your bank, it is best simply to put the phone down. If you feel worried you can always contact your bank independently to ask if there has been any suspicious activity on your account.

Prayer Meeting   (30/08/18)

You are invited to a prayer meeting every first Thursday of the month at Deacon Lemia Nkwelah’s manse at midday. This prayer meeting is open to all in the Circuit. It is part of who we are as disciples that we come together and hold a time to communicate with God. A time when we listen and think as well as speak to God. We gather in the hope that we support one another spiritually as we seek for a good relationship with God and to be changed by God and for God to change family, friends and the community in which we live. We gather in prayer to seek God's presence.
