Church service links 9 August 2020

As we are once again able to hold the service in the Church building, the sermon, prayer and readings have not been recorded.

Hand holding heart

Join Together in Prayer - 9 August

Lord, you are our Creator and our Maker.
We are fashioned in your image
And all that we are is known to you.
Hear us as we cry out and respond to us in our time of need.
Lord, in your mercy,
Hear our prayer.

Lord, your Word has become flesh and lived among us
Full of grace and truth.
As the living Word comes, we respond with open hearts
And ask that you will meet us in the place where we are today.
Lord, in your mercy,
Hear our prayer.

Lord, you see all that takes place around us
And nothing is hidden from your sight.
You see waves that batter us and the storm that seems unceasing.
Come to us in response to the depth of our need.
Lord, in your mercy,
Hear our prayer.

Lord, your presence is revealed in the life of your Son.
He knows us as we are and even now he prays for us.
May he hear us when we are anxious
And respond when we are afraid.
Lord, in your mercy,
Hear our prayer.

Lord, you inspire in us faith
And yet we confess that our faith is weak.
Hear us when we cry: “Lord, save me!”
And in response reach out your hand to all who cry to you today.
Lord, in your mercy,
Hear our prayer

This week’s letter to accompany the prayer says:-

“Have you ever been afraid? Even as we ask the question, we know the answer. Have you been especially afraid at any point in these recent months? Once more, to ask is to know.

“Collectively and as a society, have we experienced in recent decades anything comparable to the fear and anxiety that has gripped us during the Covid-19 pandemic? Fear and anxiety paralyse us and, as we now see, fear and anxiety can at times paralyse a society and leave it profoundly uncertain.

“The Gospel of Matthew records that early one morning the disciples of Jesus were afraid. They had spent the night in a boat on the water and had been ‘battered by the waves’ and now they find themselves terrified and unable to recognise the presence of Jesus.

“Jesus speaks to them and says ‘do not be afraid’. In response, the disciple Peter steps out of the boat and walks towards Jesus. However, as he does so, fear begins to overtake him once more and he cries out: ‘Lord, save me!’ In response, Jesus reaches out his hand and brings him to the place of safety (Matthew 14: 22-33).

“Today, to the fearful and to the anxious, Jesus reaches out his hand.”

Duty Groups

On a Sunday morning you can expect to see a group of elders who will welcome you as you come into Church and give you a hymn book and an order of service. During the service they will take the collection which they count later. As you leave the church you can return your hymn books to an elder at the back.

Flower Rota

Every week a member of the congregation donates the flowers which are arranged by a small group of people, then after the service the flowers are distributed to members of the congregation who may be ill or celebrating a special birthday or anniversary. If you know anyone who should be receiving the flowers please put their name and address and the reason in the book in the porch. There are a few dates free for anyone who would like to donate the flowers. Please check with me regarding availability. Why not try arranging the flowers? It is not as daunting a task as it seems.
