Hi folks! It’s time for a short letter.
This Sunday 31st January we will have our special Day of Prayer from 8am-8pm. We will be praying for whatever is on our hearts at this time, aware that life today is hard for everyone. Even if you haven’t booked a slot, you can still contribute by adding your own prayers to ours.
On the recording of next Sunday’s service, 7th February, we’ll be celebrating the Sacrament of Holy Communion. Please provide some bread and wine for yourself. We could say, ‘it’s not the same’ or we could say, ‘it’s just different’. Either way, our focus will be to remember the Lord’s sacrifice, and celebrate his love for us, until the time comes when we can share in the sacrament together.
And here’s a surprising event to look forward to. On Wednesday 17th February, which is the first day of Lent, I’m going to set up a Zoom meeting so that we can have a Coffee Morning. Yes! A Zoom Coffee Morning from 10-11am! Supply your own coffee and cakes, if you’re not giving them up for Lent that is. If you have access to the internet and can download Zoom you can participate. The package the church has for Zoom can take up to 100 people so don’t be shy. Please send me your name and email address, and I’ll send you the link on Tuesday 16th February firstname.lastname@example.org This will be fun. It’ll be great to see everyone and to catch up. Hope you can make it!
Keep safe, keep praying and keep the faith.
