“As Jesus started on his way, a man ran up to him and fell on his knees before him. ‘Good teacher,’ he asked, ‘what must I do to inherit eternal life?’" (Mark 10:17, NIV)
The man in this encounter with Jesus asks a really important question: what do I need to do to inherit eternal life? Is it enough to be ‘good’, or is there something more that is needed? Jesus’ words bring the man sadness, but can bring us great comfort and assurance. I hope that you’ll be able to join us at 8:30, at 10:30, or online (details below), as we look at this together.
Our 8:30am Sunday services of Holy Communion continue in St Thomas, Northaw. More details are available on our website.
Our 10:30am service will be live from St Andrew, and you are very welcome to join us in person or online. Please use this form, or contact me directly (firstname.lastname@example.org, 07446 516945), to let me know that you are planning to attend.
Because the service is now live, the audio from the 10:30 service will be available (01707 927907) later in the afternoon, once I’ve had time to process it. As well as the ‘dial-in’ service, audio recordings of all services are also available through SoundCloud.
Church Family Fellowship
All Souls Service
Our annual memorial service will be online, in the afternoon of Sunday 1st November. More details will be available in the next week via the website and Facebook, as well as in the weekly emails.
At this point, it is still unclear as to what we will be permitted to do on Remembrance Sunday. There will be, I hope, some kind of Act of Remembrance at the memorial in Northaw, but I’m not sure what that will be, nor how many people will be able to attend.
Advent and Christmas
As we get closer to Advent and Christmas, it is still uncertain as to what we will be able to do. We are likely to be doing some things that are familiar, and some that will be new.
In particular, I am hoping that we will be able to record some carols in St Thomas, and create an online carol service. If you would be willing to be part of a ‘Christmas Choir’, please be in touch with me (email@example.com).
Praying at Noon
Please can I encourage you, when possible, to stop at noon and spend a few minutes praying - we may be physically separate, but we can still pray together; we’ll email out possible areas for prayer each week. If you would like to make any suggestions, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Just to remind you that, this Sunday morning, the clocks go back one hour.
