Pew Sheet 3rd May

North Cornwall Cluster of Churches

The Fourth Sunday of Easter – 3rd May

Additional Collect

Risen Christ,
faithful shepherd of your Father’s sheep:
teach us to hear your voice
and to follow your command,
that all your people may be gathered into one flock,
to the glory of God the Father, Amen.
 

Holy Habits – Prayer

As you wash your hands, for the recommended 20 seconds, say the Lord’s Prayer it is just the right length! Take away a word, a phrase and reflect on it until the next handwashing. Say the prayer again and take another part away with you to think about.

Sunday Services               

The church continues to be alive and active, but our buildings must close.
We are recording short services in different styles and uploading these to our facebook group and YouTube (via our website

Sunday 3rd May:
4pm – Evensong with Revd Elizabeth Wild on our YouTube channel
Sunday 10th May:11am – All Age Worship with Marcus Jones

The Julian Group and anyone who would like to join us, meets each in our own home at 7pm every Thursday. We light a candle and read a passage from the Bible followed by silence. Then we read the second passage followed by silence and ending with Compline or our own prayers. Different members choose the readings each week. This Thursday 7th May they are Psalm 121 and Colossians  3. 12-17.

Home Groups and Daily Prayer

Our Home Groups are staying in touch via phone, email and social media. We are praying regularly, especially at 9am. If you would like hard copies of spiritual resources, or need help getting on to facebook, please contact
Revd Rose (01208 592353 – revrosejones@gmail.com).

Cluster Zoom MeetingsWe have started to meet together for fellowship through Zoom. Zoom is a cloud based video conferencing tool that allows a host to invite others to a virtual meeting using a computer, laptop or iphone. Our host for the cluster is Rev’d Geraldine. Zoom is very easy to use and help is available to get you started.  David Foster and Marcus Jones have kindly offered to do some one to one teaching sessions over the phone. Everybody is welcome to attend a zoom meeting and it is a lovely way to see each other in this time of social distancing, just let Geraldine know if you are interested and she will invite you along. Revd Geraldine Ashton – 07957 609085 / gezzalou@aol.com
