Sunday reflection 8 August 2021

Dear friends

Welcome to another time of worship.

Can I begin by saying what a super Sunday afternoon was had at Karen and James’ wedding last week – weren’t they stunning! My thanks of course to the Cleaning Team who, after the morning service, cleaned the Sanctuary following the guidelines so that the wedding could take place.

As the guidelines ease, particularly from tomorrow, we, as a church will continue to be cautious, aware of the anxiousness of some as we encourage our congregation back to Sunday worshipping.

The Worship Committee have shared their views with me regarding the use of Hymn books and the consensus is that the hymns should be displayed on the screen to encourage us to keep looking upwards. Hymn books will be available for those who would prefer.

At the close of worship today we are trying two different tea fellowship methods: one is to continue to remain in the Sanctuary and the other is to be seated in the small hall.

Our next Church Magazine, covering September 2021, will return: the deadline for contributions is noon on Sunday 15 August.

The Kids’ Club, which meets in the Novar Drive Halls, are looking for a few more helpers – perhaps, two or three times a year. If you can help, speak to Jane Stephen. More information will be contained in the upcoming Magazine.

Every blessing on this holy day,
