Going deeper in to God - Transforming Communities - Making new Disciples
Rev Alex is back from Holiday!
It was good to welcome the Rev Alex Wheatley, our Rector, back into the fold of St Mary’s Church, last Sunday and back from his annual holiday. In his sermon, after a couple of technical problems were resolved, the emphasis was on discipleship, and how church members could join in with various facets of church life, to help and befriend others who needed our help. If anyone is interested in looking further into this, please contact the Rector directly. The Rev Alex read the Banns for a few approaching marriages and prayers were said for the couples involved. Yesterday, we saw a beautiful wedding take place in St Mary’s and it is good that we as a community church, can help young couples to enter married life with God’s blessing and guidance.
On Sunday afternoon, members from across the Benefice, joined together at St John’s Church, Cockayne Hatley, for the annual Patronal Service, beautifully presented by the Rev Alex, and supported by St Mary’s Church Choir.
Next Sunday, July 3rd, it is once again the service for all ages, and much loved by the children, our monthly Friends and Family service. The theme this month is the story of Noah’s Ark. All the children’s projects will be linked to the theme and the adults taking part, may also find they get involved in this intriguing Bible story. There will be something for everyone, and refreshments will be available throughout the practical part of the service. We hope many will come and join us on what will be a happy morning for everyone.
In the evening of July 3rd we invite you to our NightLight service and this month the theme is "Hearing and Listening". Refreshments will be served from 7.15pm and we start at 7.30pm in the church. Everyone is welcome! Do come along if you can. We will be providing Zoom for those who, due to health reasons, are unable to attend in person. Please email. firstname.lastname@example.org for the code.
