LEXDEN METHODIST CHURCH
Notices for Week Commencing 24th October 2021
“Jesus, Son of David, have mercy on me!” – Mark 10 v 46
A very warm welcome to you especially if you are a visitor and to Viv Wilcox who is leading our worship this morning.
Prayer Requests – Please keep Rev Joe Adams 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.
Christmas Giving – it was agreed at the church council that we would support the Queen Victoria Seamen’s Rest this Christmas. This was originally set up to provide accommodation and welfare support for merchant sailors, members of the Royal Navy, the Fleet Air Arm and other units with maritime links, although they now welcome servicemen from across all the armed forces and homeless men from many different walks of life. We hope to be able to provide Christmas gifts of men’s toiletries, toothbrushes and toothpaste, knitted hats, gloves, fingerless mitts, E45 cream, hand cream for extra dry skin, sweets, chocolate and Haribos.
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. We are unable to provide tea and coffee at the moment.
Morning Prayer Time has been cancelled for this coming week.
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.
If you are visiting us for the first time please add your name to our Visitor’s Book which is on the bookcase in the entrance vestibule. Many thanks.

Mercy, O thou Son of David!
Thus blind Bartimaeus prayed;
Others by thy word are saved,
Now to me afford thine aid.
Many for his crying chide him,
But he called the louder still;
Till the gracious Saviour bid him
“Come, and ask me what you will.”
John Newton (1725–1807)
