With God all things are possible – Matthew 19:26
How has your week been? I know for some it has brought joyful news, for others it has been quite heart-breaking and for others just another week when we have to try and recollect what day of the week it is!
This week we will hear from Dan Jordan in our service – his is a great story of how “with God all things are possible”.
On Tuesday, we will mark the anniversary of the beginning of the first lockdown. Who would have thought then that we would still be in lockdown a year later? There is hope though, with the roll out of the vaccines and better treatments available – more than this we remember that our hope is in the Lord and that “with him all things are possible”. It does feel as though we are at a start point of a time where we might begin to contemplate recovery and rebuilding in many aspects of life, including Church. For now though, keep praying and stay safe.
The Elders have been working on the preparatory work for the Church Pastorate Profile and this week we will be rolling out a questionnaire. This will be e-mailed out after the service tomorrow morning and I will explain this in more detail during our service.
We are hosting another Coffee and Chat on Zoom next Saturday, 27th March starting at 11am as an opportunity to update everyone further on the vacancy and answer questions you may have on the questionnaire. We really hope you will join us.
On Tuesday we will be starting a 2 week Easter bible study based on the Francis Chan resource. Please do join us as we look again at the Easter Story.
We will have the normal Wednesday and Saturday Zoom prayer meetings starting at 9.30am.
In next Sunday’s service will include Communion – do bring along your bread and wine to share together in this.
Geoff is now able to offer “walk with the Rev” and would love to hear from anyone who would like to take a stroll with him.
Just a reminder that Tony has the ‘Why Easter’ booklets for you to give out to your neighbours and those on your frontlines. Do contact him at firstname.lastname@example.org to get your copies. I know some of the congregation have decided to buy some Christian Easter cards and will be delivering these to their neighbours along with some Easter eggs.
This time last year we reminded ourselves that although the church buildings may be closed, the Church is alive! I am sure you will agree that the Church is very much alive and has remained so during the whole year. Thank you to everyone who has made this possible!!
Hope you have a good and blessed week
