PRAYER

Prayer Requests – Please remember Laurie Berris, and his family, in your prayers. He was rushed into hospital on Tuesday following a fall.

Please pray 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 is with great sadness that, following a circuit meeting earlier this week; we have been informed that we cannot yet open our church for services. We are required to complete a specific risk assessment for Covid. This will be checked by our superintendent minister. If it is in order then each member of our church must see a copy and agree, or reject it. We submitted a copy to the superintendent minister on Friday. Once he has agreed it, or made suitable amendments, we will provide each church council member with a copy for approval or rejection. We will keep you informed of progress as soon as we have received a response.
Yours in Christ,
Alan and Christine Beesley
Senior Stewards

If you need prayer or help in any way please contact your pastoral visitor or you can call Alan Beesley on 766604. Please do not call Rev Joe Adams while he is off sick.

Come let us sing of a wonderful love

Come let us sing of a wonderful love,
tender and true;
out of the heart of the Father above,
streaming to me and to you:
wonderful love
dwells in the heart of the Father above.

Jesus, the Saviour, this gospel to tell,
joyfully came;
came with the helpless and hopeless to dwell,
sharing their sorrow and shame;
seeking the lost,
saving, redeeming at measureless cost.

Jesus is seeking the wanderers yet;
why do they roam?
Love only waits to forgive and forget;
Home, weary wanderer, home!
Wonderful love
dwells in the heart of the Father above.

Come to my heart, O thou wonderful love,
come and abide,
lifting my life till it rises above
envy and falsehood and pride:
seeking to be
lowly and humble, a learner of thee.

Robert Walmsley – 1831-1905
