Letter from our minister 26/09/2020

Saturday 26th September 2020

Dear Friends,
September has been a funny month as our children have gone back to school and then some returned home to self-isolate because they or a classmate has tested positive for coronavirus. Some of us have returned more fully to our workplace. Some of us have begun to explore going out once again. Some have gone on holiday. All of us have tried to stay positive, keeping praying and holding on the promises that God is our constant and is present with us through all the ups and downs of a day, a week and always. I have been reminded this week of those words of Paul from Romans 8, ‘I am sure that neither death nor life, nor angels nor rulers, nor things present, nor things to come, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.

When it comes to facing my own fears and concerns, I mull over and pray for some time. This can be frustrating for some….but this week through support across the section and the circuit, I have decided that despite zoom and I not being good friends – it is time to embrace it. Dates have been set and with a deep breathe – we are launching zoom services for October. We are taking this month by month – until we know about how and when we reopen….more talking with each other and more seeing each other. And so starting:

Sunday 4th October 2020

We are making a start, learning as we go, and invite you to be part of it and take part as you feel able. Zoom codes and telephone join in with be sent out next week via email and post. If you need any help, please get in touch. You can invite others to join us. We will sing, pray, read scripture and ponder together then head into breakout rooms to chat together. Bring your cuppa and let’s worship God together in new ways.

I look forward to seeing and hearing you on screen.

With love and prayers,Sharon
