PRAYER

Prayer Requests – Please pray for everyone delivering the vaccine. Please pray for all front line workers.

Please pray for our empty Church Buildings and for our Circuit Ministers Rev Joe Adams, Rev Ken Chalmers and Rev Alan Jenkins.

Continue to pray for all others who are in any way troubled, lonely, unwell or bereaved and anyone else who needs our prayers.

NOTICES

Please be aware – there are a number of covid scams doing the rounds at the moment. If someone comes to your door offering you the vaccine for money or contacts you by phone and asks for your payment card details they are thieves and should be reported to the police. The jabs are free of charge. God bless the NHS.

Worship from home – we will continue to deliver paper notices and a service sheet every week, God willing, until we can open our church doors once more. If you would like to receive a DVD of the weekly circuit service please call Geoff on 545083.

If you need prayer or help in any way please contact your pastoral visitor or you can call Rev Joe Adams on 331413

Invictus

Out of the night that covers me,
Black as the pit from pole to pole,
I thank whatever gods may be
For my unconquerable soul.

In the fell clutch of circumstance
I have not winced nor cried aloud.
Under the bludgeonings of chance
My head is bloody, but unbowed.

Beyond this place of wrath and tears
Looms but the Horror of the shade,
And yet the menace of the years
Finds and shall find me unafraid.

It matters not how strait the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll,
I am the master of my fate,
I am the captain of my soul.

William Ernest Henley (1849–1903).
