The harvest is plentiful but the workers are few.– Matthew 9 v 37
A very warm welcome to you especially if you are a visitor and we welcome Jo Eckersley who is leading our Harvest Festival worship this morning.
Prayer Requests – Please keep Bill and family in your prayers.
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.
Harvest Festival – a very big thank you to everyone who has donated to the Colchester Food Bank and to Refugee Action Colchester. If anyone still has something they wish to give please see Alan or Christine.
Muriel’s Funeral will take place on Tuesday 12th October here at Lexden at 10:30am followed by the burial at St Albright’s at 11:30am. Due to Covid social distancing restrictions this is limited to family or by invitation only.
Covid Regulations – You must sign in on arrival or use the QR code. For the safety of visiting preachers, as well as our congregation, we are still following social distancing guidelines and everyone must sanitise their hands and wear a facemask at all times. If we have too many people attending we may have to use the Garling Room as an overflow. Please do not congregate in the entrance or when exiting. Please follow the one-way system and exit by the fire door at the front of the building. We are unable to provide tea and coffee at the moment.
Morning Prayer Time – every Thursday at 9:30am. Please sign-in as you enter and collect a prayer card.
Circuit Service on DVD – If you, or anyone you know, would like a copy of the circuit service please speak with Geoff Wilcox or one of the stewards.
