We hope you will find information to help and encourage you in the vitally important issue of keeping the Lord's Day - a principle laid down by God himself in creation. Sadly, in these days, too few Christians realise the importance of this issue in the health of the church and our nation at large.
Today, the organisation - previously known as the Lord's Day Observance Society - under the name of Day One Christian Ministries campaigns for Sunday to be a day of worship and rest; our day of rest is increasingly under threat as retail businesses, sports events and entertainment seek to make Sunday just another day to make money.
It was a sweltering Saturday - the hottest day of the year so far with the temperature above 30C - and nearly 50 gathered
to hear Katherine Bejide talk about her book, ‘Help, I am walking through trauma’. The good attendance at St Leonards Church Hall, Oakley, near Basingstoke, added even more warmth,
literally and figuratively, as Katherine launched her book on how she had been so very deeply affected by the death of her brother in a car crash. The years immediately following were increasingly a
nightmare, including alcohol and self harm, until in 2008 God met with her in a remarkable and emotionally healing way.
Katherine’s short, well written book follows the story of the woman at the well (John 4) to which Katherine relates her own dark journey.
At the launch many expressions of appreciation were made, particularly stressing the honesty of her very personal account. It is Katherine’s hope that her book will not only be helpful to others experiencing similar trauma, but also to those supporting them in their difficult time.

In a series of three articles, Andrew Stone looks at what we can learn from the plants and flowers of the Bible. All plants, flowers and trees were made on day three of God’s creation week. They were created firstly to glorify God their creator, but then also to provide food for all the animals, birds, insects and fish – and of course mankind. But God doesn’t do things in a bare minimum fashion. God is a super-abundant creator who makes things the way he does because he can and for his own glory. " Read more...

A forest scientist, author and woodland owner of international renown, Professor Julian Evans, has been awarded the 2019 Sylva Trophy for outstanding contributions to forestry.
The Sylva Trophy is donated by Patrick Evelyn, a direct descendent of John Evelyn, author of the seminal 17th century ‘Sylva or a Discourse of Forest-trees and the propagation of Timber’ and is awarded annually.
On receiving the award, he said: “‘I am humbled, delighted but above all surprised to receive this great honour. I am doubly blessed to receive it from Patrick Evelyn, a direct descendent of the great John Evelyn, as a part of my own woodland was once owned by the great man’s sister-in-law. Also when lecturing on trees in the Bible my final quote is always from Evelyn’s Silva: ‘In a word, and speak a bold and noble truth, trees and woods have twice saved the whole world, first by the ark and then by the cross; making full amends for evil fruit of the tree in paradise by that which was born on the tree in Golgotha.’
Since Julian’s book God’s Trees, was published four years ago he has given over 120 presentations all over the country in cathedrals, at prayer breakfasts, to secular groups etc - offering the above quote from Sylva at each of each of them!
Gerard Chrispin tells how the Day One Diary still helps in prison gospel work.
I thank Day One for getting me into prison work for Christ about twenty years ago. Day One’s then leader, John Roberts, had received invitations from Prison Chaplains to send a Day One representative to go ‘behind bars’. I was that privileged person who first took the gospel ‘inside’ for Day One Prison Ministries. On the principle of ‘buy one – get one free’ Phillippa came too. Read more
This ministry has continued for 38 years and now up to 190,000 copies are distributed to 167 prisons and Young Offenders Institutions. The diaries have also been requested by prison workers overseas, such as Canada, Australia and Cyprus.
Lives have been changed through this ministry, and Chaplains are constantly asking for them.
Your support for this ministry would be much appreciated and an encouragement to us as our desire is to maintain this important ministry that God has opened to us.
