Mothering Sunday

And she gave birth to her firstborn, a son. Luke 2 v 7

We offer you a very warm welcome especially if you are a visitor and to those who will be watching during the week on the DVD and to Alan Beesley who is leading our worship this morning.

PRAYER

Prayer Requests – Please pray for the people of Ukraine and pray for peace.

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

During the Annual Church Meeting it was agreed, on a trial basis, that we would hold just two services a month on the first and third Sunday with tea and coffee served afterwards. This will start in June when the next quarterly plan comes out.

Lent – during Lent we are asking you to give up a tin or a packet every week for the Colchester Food Bank. They need toiletries and sanitary products as well as food items. We can also take money. There is a box under the table in the entrance vestibule for your donations. Thank you.

Facemasks – with the recent increase in Covid numbers we are still asking everyone to keep wearing a facemask.

Easter – our Sunday service with Holy Communion on Easter day – 17th April – will be at 3pm and will be led by Rev Paul Howes. We will not have a morning service on that day. The Easter Offering service will be on 8th May.

Sunday Services on DVD – If you, or anyone you know, would like a copy of our Sunday morning service on DVD please speak with Geoff or one of the stewards.

Midweek Prayer Time – every Thursday at 9:30am. A short service of prayer and reflection.
