We are open for worship this Sunday 18th April, Stephens letter and this weeks Reflection.

10.30 am Worship this Sunday is led by Judith Smith.

Dear All

Please find attached this week’s reflection and the information sheet for the next two weeks.

The General Church Meeting we had provisionally booked for the 21st April has been postponed and will be held as soon as restrictions allow us to come together for such a meeting. The ‘road map’ from the Government suggests this could be July. We will continue to monitor the situation and will keep you informed. Please remember the administrative life of the church in your prayers and in particular the District Synod as it prepares to meet on the 24th April by Zoom and to vote on the God in Love Unites Us report in preparation for a decision by Conference in June.

As the weather gets a little warmer and restrictions ease, may I remind you of the importance of keeping 2m distancing before, during and after worship.

Peace be with you.

We are open for Worship This Sunday 11th April, Stephens letter and this weeks Reflection

Worship Sunday 11th April is led by Rev Stephen Heath.

Dear All

Please find attached this week’s Mid-Week Reflection.

My thanks to all who enabled the Services to go ahead in each of the churches over Easter and in all cases the churches were full as well as safe.

While restrictions are with us for some time yet, we are beginning to think about how and when church groups can safely open. Please make this a matter of prayer that God’s wisdom may guide our discussions and each of us may be sensitive to God’s calling as we begin to identify different roles and opportunities to serve our risen Lord in the weeks to come. If you would like to help and get more involved in the life of the church please get in touch.

Regards

Stephen
