We are between Ascension Day and Pentecost, and we’re encouraged to use this as a season of renewed prayer, known as Thy Kingdom Come. It’s not too late to join in and you can find out all about it here.  And here are five popular ideas for families in this pdf.

Thy Kingdom Come – join a global prayer movement




Celebrating the Ascension…
…and responding with generosity




This Sunday we celebrate the Ascension – an important and often overlooked occasion.  In our bible reading (Acts 1) God sends us to witness to his love both near and far.   Would you consider financially supporting our witness?  We’re asking because, with our buildings closed we’re not able to receive all the donations we normally would.  We know that lots of people have been hit really hard by this crisis – financially as well as health wise.  If you have not been adversely impacted, please consider supporting us, so we can continue to support those who have.

Let’s meet up for a cuppa!  

Someone posted online last week that so many people were attending online church services in the UK that it “crashed the internet” – that’s a bit of an exaggeration, but lots of churches had real problems using Zoom to meet up.  So, don’t be disheartened if you had problems connecting – it probably wasn’t your fault!  
  Each Sunday morning at 11am we will gather for “Coffee after the Online Service” at 11am.  (Don’t worry if you haven’t actually watched the service – there won’t be a test!). And on Wednesday we’re meeting for “Coffee not in the Chancel” from 10:30am until midday.  You can drop in for a short while or stay throughout.

The Tree of life is filling up nicely with prayers and messages of hope.  It’s great to see the tags fluttering in the breeze.   You can either use the labels provided (just outside the door of the church) or bring your own.  Either way, you’ll need to use your own pen.
