Lent begins, and in our Benefice soon, a new Chapter starts when our New Rector arrives!

A really cold day last Sunday, but it didn’t stop 43 people joining us from the comfort of their homes connecting via Zoom for the Service of the Word led by The Rev Ray Porter once more. Rev Ray talked of the ascent into heaven of Elijah and of Elisha taking over the rôle his father was to leave to him. The Rev Ray made this a very interesting story which was taken from the second book of Kings, chapter 2. Our next service via Zoom is the Ash Wednesday service on 17th February at 7.30pm. Our usual Zoom access code will be used and details can be found on our website or the Sunday Link newsletter. Next Sunday, the Service of the Word will be led by Rdr Simon Gutteridge and leads us into the period of Lent. Please join us for this service if you can.

The Rev Alex Wheatley joined via Zoom, the Churchwardens from the Benefice last Tuesday, for their regular planning meeting and said he is getting ready for his move but will hit the ground running when he arrives here as it is just before Easter. His preparations for that are already underway, but he will have to firstly have his Licensing Service to become established in the Benefice. This service will take place on March 24th but we have no further details as yet on the format this service will take under the present conditions. More will be said nearer the time.

Nick Wilson, our Church Organist, makes his next appearance on BigglesFM on Friday, February 26th with his Thought for the Day. He will be back for the next one on March 12th at 8.15am as usual, on 104.8Mhz on your radio, don’t forget to join him!

The drop in Covid-19 cases in Potton is very encouraging and hopefully it is all due to the diligence of everyone and the effect of the Vaccine starting to do it’s job. Everyone over 70 or in one of the at risk groups, should by now have had their jab but if not please call on Freephone 119 to make your arrangements to get it done. This is the only way that we can beat this terrible pandemic, and it will allow us to eventually get services in the Benefice back to normal.

Next Week’s 10.30am Benefice Service, 21st February, Lent 1, will be Service of the Word by Zoom and will be led by Rdr Simon Gutteridge. There is a service for Ash Wednesday, via Zoom at 7.30pm on Wednesday February 17th. Details of how to join these services can be found here on our website or our Facebook page.
