Although it has been reluctantly decided that Cafe Church and Messy Church will not take place until next year, there is good news:-
The present period of Lockdown has interrupted the plan to hold short service in the Chapel on those Sundays when there is nothing live at the Chapel. However Government Guidelines permitting they will resume on December 6th at 10a.m, with a time of worship led by Paul Woolner, and take place on alternate Sundays until the end of January when, once more, the situation will be reviewed.
You will all be welcome to join us in the Chapel for a service lasting around 30 minutes at 10 a.m. on
We hope to see you there !
There are a number of us in the Chapel who circulate our requests for prayer support from time to time and it is always good to know that others are joining their prayers with ours.
If you would like to post a prayer request in the Chapel Foyer, there are pens and paper and a board for you to fix it to, or,if you would prefer to keep it private, a locked box for you to slip it into which will be opened once a week.
It is good to know we are not alone when the going is tough, and it is always wonderful to be able to share the things that have made us glad. Being able to pray specifically for someone brings privilege and blessing for both parties and it pleases God when we bring our cares and concern before him in this way,
These are Bible stories retold for little ones with a familiar song adapted to suit the story, and a short prayer. These can be found on the St. Martin's website.
By the beginning of December these bags should be with all the children in the village!
We hope they provide some pleasure and are a positive preparation for Christmas, It was great fun packing them although it took 6 volunteers two and a half hours to complete the task of filling 175bags!
A Children's Society collecting box in the form of a candle has been added.The Christingle service would normally be the opportunity for these boxes to be returned, which unforunately cannot be held, but there will be a chance to return the candles to school or the Village Hall. Thank you for your support.
