Dear Friends,

Greetings to you all!

I have to apologise for some gremlins that caused some problems last week with our live-stream recording. As a result we were unable to put the recorded service up on the website and we thought it best to put just the recording up as a podcast. We have done some work on this in the past week and hopefully things will run more smoothly this week.

This Sunday is Remembrance Sunday which, like everything else, will be strange without a congregation. However, we will be holding the 2 minute silence as usual and I hope that many of you can join us at that time via the live-stream.

One other matter: I am planning to run another ‘Walk Through The Bible’ – a four week course that is aimed at people who are considering Church membership, baptism, confirmation, or who just fancy a refresher course in the Christian faith or a better understanding of the Bible. I will be doing this on Zoom, probably one night per week for four weeks, and anyone wishing to take part, please contact me on pastor.l.stone@gmail.com .

I hope you continue to keep well.

The programme for this WEEK: below:

Prayer:
In a time like this, there may be people who feel especially in need of prayer either for themselves or for someone else. There is a small group of people in the congregation who take it in turns on Sundays to be available after the service to pray for anyone in need – so, if you would like prayer or have a particular prayer request please contact Margaret Richards on margaretanne_richards@hotmail.com and she and the others will pray accordingly.

A word about finance….
Please note that in this period when we are not meeting together there is a way of giving to the church on this website. Please use the PayPal donation button on the right.

God bless you all and keep us united as a church family – and safe and well.

Rev. Dr. Lance Stone
