20th September

Additional Collect

Lord God,
defend your Church from all false teaching
and give to your people knowledge of your truth,
that we may enjoy eternal life
in Jesus Christ our Lord, Amen

Holy Habits – Sharing Resources

True sharing involves receiving as well as giving. We are often very good at giving of our possessions and time, but not so good at receiving from others, especially if what is given does not match up to our expectations. Consider the situation of Elijah and the Shunamite woman. 1 Kings 17 v 7-16. They were both blessed by the sharing and receiving. Think too of Jesus accepting the oil on his feet from a woman. John 12 v 1-3.  I am sure that there are times in our lives when we have said to someone “I can do that,” and denied them the chance to be blessed, by not receiving what they have to offer.

Sunday Services               

It has been wonderful to be able to worship together in person again. We will be increasing the number of services in church in the next weeks, but places are still limited.
 Following the change in the law restricting the number of people allowed to meet for a social gathering to six, we understand that the new regulations will not apply to public worship or individual prayer in church buildings.

If you would like to come, please contact Revd Elizabeth, stating the date, time and place of the church service you wish to attend (Email or phone 07758 407661). If that service is already full, we will let you know.

For more information about Sunday services and what to expect, please visit our website. Those who are unable to attend church in person can worship with us online. Find the latest online services on our website and YouTube.

Online Services
We are continuing to offer online worship for those who cannot attend on Sundays. From 13th September, this will be a mixture of purpose-made online worship and services recorded in church on the previous Sunday. New online worship will be released every Tuesday morning on our website and on YouTube.

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. Thursday 24th September they are Ecclesiastes 3 vv11-13 and Psalm 8v9-Psalm 9 vv 1-2.

Please pray for

The sick, among them Claudia Tom, Rosalind Smith & Jane Windeler and all affected by the coronavirus.

Pray for the NHS, care workers and all front line workers and volunteers. We pray for race equality and for all victims of race crime and brutality.

Remember all those who have died recently including Pauline White. We remember those whose anniversary of death occurs at this time including Valerie Davey and Dorothea Lane.

Taking it in turns to pray for each other – this week we pray for St Peter’s.
