Minister’s weekly letter – and upcoming events

Categories: Church,Events,Newsletter,Outreach

Dear Friends,

Greetings once again and I hope this finds you well.

I hope that many of you managed to access the live-stream service last Sunday, either on Sunday morning at 10.30 am or later in the week. The same arrangements apply this Sunday and next Sunday, and then we will review the situation and see how the infection rates are doing.

Meanwhile, please note that there is a new and very full edition of our church magazine, The Record – have a read of it!

All best wishes to you – please keep safe and keep praying that this difficult situation will soon be over, especially as winter approaches with the threat of increased pressure on hospitals and medical services.

Below, as usual, are the events for the coming WEEK:

Sunday 10.30, live- streamed service

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.

All best wishes to you – please keep safe and keep praying that this difficult situation will soon be over, especially as winter approaches with the threat of increased pressure on hospitals and medical services.

Rev. Dr. Lance Stone
