Weekly SPC news for 6 February

Both the Howells and the Staceys continue to struggle with ill health in different ways, and both families want to express our huge thanks for the care and prayer we have received.

I was also hugely encouraged by the beautiful 3rd-anniversary card I received last week – what a blessing that was, and it is to minister alongside you all.

Ordinand, Kim Trinder, has started her placement with us and you can find out more about her here.

I hope you have been able to look at the Valentine campaign Helen highlighted last week. These resources are going out in our paper mailing to those who don’t have access to the internet. Below is a photo of our landing window – I am sure you can do better! Let’s spread the love this February.

Our Book Club are reading The Ruthless Elimination of Hurry by John Mark Comer and I cannot recommend this book highly enough – I found it life-changing.

This coming Sunday Steve Saville, our Ordinand, will be preaching with the Edsall family reading and Sue Jackson, Holy Trinity Churchwarden leading our intercessions. Because of all that is going on, we are sticking with Epiphany – we figured another couple of weeks of finding light in the darkness was very appropriate. Do join us here!

If you have any concerns or questions please do get in touch with Fiona or Helen in the first instance – they, alongside so many of you, are doing a splendid job of keeping everything together. I do thank God for you all.

Communion during this time

In these unprecedented times, we are working hard to find imaginative solutions in a landscape that has been rapidly changing. Sometimes we get things right, and sometimes we miss the mark. I apologise that this has been the case regarding communion.

For those of you who have received wafers in a parcel, we would ask that you either consume them, or put them somewhere safe to bring back once we are able to be together again.

We are going to be sending out a new order of service for use during this time as either a simple service of the word or, on occasion, to help us to share an Agape meal together.
