In this week's service we will be talking about obedience and doing no harm. After I recorded the service I read a little story that I thought was worth sharing with you. If you follow us on Facebook then you have already seen it. The story is based on a photograph with a very, very long queue. Why is the queue there? Some parents made a plea to their local community, they asked for help as their 5 year old was dying. The child needed a donor and they wanted people to step forward to be swabbed to see if they are a match. The community answered the call, 5,000 people lined up to be tested, to see if they could help. It emphasizes the point that built into each of us is the desire to help our community, to protect one another, and especially our youngest and most vulnerable. This inherent, instinctive function is common to us and God, we are built in his image.
The children have prepared another little clip for you this morning, that I hope makes you smile. Josh plays the part of the telex machine.

An apology from us to the uniformed organisations, it would have been great to include goodbyes to Simon from you in last week's service and that is an oversight on our part. We hope you are all staying safe and have been able to pass on your thoughts directly to Simon.
For those who would like to we are continuing our Wednesday prayers, starting at 7pm we are each praying at home. We end at 715 with the Lord's prayer. You can find out more on our website.
There has been some discussion around re-opening the building for private prayer. Di has asked me to advise you that the stewards and Simon have taken the decision not to do so. Please do join us Wednesdays at 7.
