LiFT 16th July
Good afternoon friends,
Such a glorious day! I trust you are well and getting a good balance between being energetic and relaxing with a cold drink in your hand?
Let’s get straight to the point – Wales has changed its Covid advice but the Church in Wales has not yet updated us with regard to what we can do differently in our churches and in our worship. I know that the small team in the provincial office has been working flat out all year trying to keep up with the changes and how they might relate to us, and I trust that they will publish specific guidance for us as soon as they possibly can. In the meantime, worship this week will be the same as it has been for the last few weeks, which sadly includes no singing.
Let’s hang on in there – we will soon see some positive difference I am sure of that, and as I have mentioned before, we can take some comfort from knowing that none of our churches have been responsible for the transmission of coronavirus, thankfully. As soon as I know anything I will of course be in touch.
Compline – I am again looking for people who might be willing to lead one of our Complines on Zoom, Sundays 8pm please. I can help with slides, Zoom room management, music, or anything else. It is a lovely service!
Thank you for your prayers for the children in our local schools. On Monday the year 6 children from Usk came to church to receive bibles, it was a lovely service. Let’s continue to pray for all those children, young people, and adults, who are going through a period of change, asking God to give them confidence and to make his presence known to them as they step into new things.
Finally can I assure you of my prayers for you? I consider prayer to be my first and most important job in ministry and it is a privilege to pray for and with you. If you have any specific prayer requests please don’t hesitate to be in touch, and if you would like to be added to the list of people who are prayed for by name in our services just let me know and I can organise that with Dee Seabourne.
With love to you all,
Compline Sunday 8pm
