This week's service is based on Philippians 3, and it makes such a great segway to one of my favourite songs "All I once Held dear". Its lyrics are as much worship as they are meditation and reflection. It is just a brilliant chance to use it. So, if you get chance join us on-line this week and sing along (the words are at the end of this e-mail).
In terms of notices just a reminder to Church council members that you are meeting on the 14th via Zoom. Thank you to Di for organising it.
A reminder that there are still those in our Church who need your prayers and I hope you will join us Wednesday evenings to continue to pray for one another.
I do love to hear your personal news, so feel free to share that with me especially if you'd like me to share with the wider Church in these notices.
I usually tell you something of the events for the Carhart family - we continue to work away in "Bunker Carhart". The children are enjoying being back at school, although they won't admit that if you ask them! I am being allowed out for the first time this week to preach at Compton's evening service, I am sure it will be different, face masks and all but none the less I am looking forward to it!
I hope this week has been kind to you and you have a blessed and God filled week. As always remember the God of creation, the God of pure love hope and joy is in command, so all must be well! With our love
Jon, Helen, Josh and Beth
