PRAYER

Prayer Requests – Please pray for the medics and all the volunteers at the Covid vaccination centres.

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

It has been suggested that we have a collection for the Colchester Food Bank throughout Lent. They are still very busy and would appreciate all manner of food and toiletries as well as donations of money. Alan can collect your contributions when he delivers your notices on a Saturday morning or call us on 766604 to arrange an alternative. Thank you.

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 or Alan Beesley on 766604.

Easter Wings

Lord, Who createdst man in wealth and store,
Though foolishly he lost the same,
Decaying more and more,
Till he became
Most poore:
With Thee
O let me rise,
As larks, harmoniously,
And sing this day Thy victories:
Then shall the fall further the flight in me.
My tender age in sorrow did beginne;
And still with sicknesses and shame
Thou didst so punish sinne,
That I became
Most thinne.
With Thee
Let me combine,
And feel this day Thy victorie;
For, if I imp my wing on Thine,
Affliction shall advance the flight in me.

George Herbert (1593–1633)
