We also recognise that if you have not been to church in a long time it may feel difficult to return, so if you would like someone to come and either give you a lift to church or walk with you to church please let us know.

Prayers: Please continue to pray that our teenagers would have opportunity and support to grow as disciples of Jesus.

Let us pray for Tina who has not been well; and continue to pray for Tracy’s mum, Gloria, giving thanks for slow but continued improvement; for Alison on chemotherapy; for Betty recovering from an operation; and for healing for Poppy, Leon, Joyce, Moira and Beth.

Let us pray for all who mourn, remembering those who have died recently, among them John Wilson, and those whose anniversary falls at this time among them: Fran Caldecourt, Patricia Harle and Ernie Smith.

God bless you and keep you and use you for his glory.
In Christ,

I have had both my jabs now.  Here is a short 16sec Youtube clip of me having the first one:

I feel much better since having it.  Feel free to use it in any way that is useful to encourage others to get theirs.  Come to think of it wouldn’t it be ironic if it went viral!
