The Sixteenth Sunday after Trinity
Lord of creation,
whose glory is around and within us:
open our eyes to your wonders,
that we may serve you with reverence
and know your peace at our lives’ end,
through Jesus Christ our Lord, Amen
Holy Habits – Sharing Resources
It is good to consider our attitude and motivation for sharing. In 1 John 3 v 16-18 we are reminded that love should underlie all our actions. God loved us enough to send his only Son, and Jesus laid down his life for us because he loved us. Sharing resources also helps to spread the kingdom of God. We see in the feeding of the 5000 (John 6 v 5-8) that Jesus can turn a small offering into a big gift. What if the boy had not freely given what he had? We need to have faith that God can use our sharing however small, and multiply it. Even a phone call, or email may make more difference to people than we realize, although it may not take us much time. Ask God where the need is and follow his promptings. Sometimes it is difficult to know where the need is, but trust that God knows.
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.

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 1st October they are Psalm 134, Matthew 11 vv 28-30.
