“And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds, not giving up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but encouraging one another—and all the more as you see the Day approaching.” Hebrews 10:24-25
Hope you have had a good week.
We start a new series this week focussing on Church. I do hope you will join us either in church or on-line. Don’t forget to do a lateral flow test before coming to church for the service.
We remember those in our fellowship who have lost loved ones recently. Some of these families will be gathering for funeral services this week. Jesus says in Matthew 5:4: Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted. This is our prayer for all those who have lost loved ones recently or who are remembering anniversaries of losing loved ones.
The thanksgiving service for Joy Wells takes place on Monday at church at 10.30 am. The service will be led by Rev Ken Forbes from Lion Walk URC with members of the fellowship taking part. The service will be followed by the committal at Colchester Crematorium at 11.45 am which everyone is welcome to attend.
Bible Study Homegroup
We restart our Bible Study Homegroup on Tuesday evening. The group is open to everyone in the fellowship and meets fortnightly on Tuesdays at 7.30pm. We start a new series on RightNow media this week entitled “Your time is now”. The description for the series is:
“The word “now” can be exciting or dreadful, depending on whether we feel ready for what comes next. But God can fulfil his purpose in our lives at any time—he does not need to wait on the right circumstances. We can commit to following God wherever he leads us because he will give us what we need for the journey.
In this six-part series, speaker and chaplain for the Dallas Cowboys, Jonathan Evans, encourages us to walk in God’s purpose today and for the rest of our lives. Learn how our decisions and reactions to difficult circumstances can directly affect our ability to take hold of what God wants to give us right now. “
Do join us if you can.
We continue to gather on Zoom for our prayer meetings on Wednesday and Saturday mornings at 9.30 am. Prayer is fundamental to our lives and the life of the church. Do try and join the meetings if you can. The Zoom links are sent out each week and to access the meeting you simply have to click the link provided. Once you have joined the meeting you can contribute verbally or in silence, there is not pressure to speak out! The most important thing is that God’s people are gathered together to pray together.
Children and youth activities
Most of our children’s and youth activities restart this week. Please do pray for these groups – for energy for their leaders and safety as they gather.
Hope you have a good weekend.
