Give thanks to the Lord for he is good Psalm 118:1
Hope you have had a good week.
Prayer and Vision weekend
Thank you to everyone who contributed to and/or came along last weekend. There are still forms available for you if you would like to contribute. It was a very special weekend in many ways not least the presence we felt of God’s Spirit with us.
This Sunday is our harvest thanksgiving service. This is an All Age service with a number of folk taking part. Just a reminder that we will be bringing gifts to church for Beacon House. We need someone to take the donations down to Beacon House this week so if you can offer to do this please do let me know.
This is just a reminder that we are continuing to follow Covid guidelines in church. We would ask that if you are displaying any symptoms of Covid or awaiting a Covid test result, please do not come into the building or attend church activities. Please do wear a mask at all times when you are in the building, sanitise your hands as you enter and keep a safe distance from other people. This is all so important to keep everyone safe and well, especially those in our congregation who are vulnerable.
It was so wonderful to be able to announce the good news that Rachel had a little girl, Amelie Florence, on Friday 17th September. Our congratulations to Rachel and Nathan and of course Jacob. We would love to continue our tradition of filling a baby box of gifts for the family. A box will be available at church if you would like to place your gifts in there. Having spoken to Rachel, she has enough new born nappies so if nappies could be size 2 upwards that would be great.
Please do pray for Joe, the youth team, all the helpers and the 21 youth who are all off to Assington Hall next weekend for their camping weekend. Please pray for the final preparations and safety and good health for all and that the young people enjoy being together again.
Please do pray for all the preparations for the Synod day which we are hosting here on Saturday 9th October. Thank you to everyone who has offered to help – if you would like join us please do let us know.
I have the autumn/winter catalogues if anyone would like one. Completed orders can be passed to me and the commission will go to the work of Girls’ Brigade (which will be really helpful as we now have 12 new girls!).
Have a blessed weekend
