Letter from Stephen inc. BBC services & Readings.

Dear All

Please find below the daily readings and some of the many opportunities for joining with others in worship. Some have mentioned to me how they feel as though they are worshipping with the nation when they join the BBC I Sunday Worship. Some people have dressed as though going to church others have been very casual but all have born witness to the benefits of joining with others in worship.

Please check the programme schedules on the day. If you are struggling to find what you are looking for there is more information including online worship on the church website or please contact Stephen 01772 683 884 0r 07711917955 stephen.heath@churchrdmethodist.org.uk

*Not everyone will have a Singing The Faith hymn book so we have put the first line of the hymn alongside so that you can look it up in another hymn book or google it or play it on You Tube.  If you would like some background on the readings and points to ponder please go to https://www.methodist.org.uk/our-faith/the-bible/a-word-in-time/

On a practical note some people have been asking what about collections? Clearly the church still has bills to pay. If you would like to know how to give to the church in these times, please get in touch with me and I will provide you with secure ways of doing so. It will certainly help cashflow but we appreciate some people will prefer to wait until we return to worship at church and that is fine.

Remember you are never alone. We are never more than a phone call or email away. Please keep in touch and keep safe. Peace be with you
