    Weekly Message

    A message from Rachel our Curate

    To my family in Christ,

    Last Sunday we looked at the story of the talents and considered how important it is to be faithful with what God has given us. Following on from this we might consider that when we faithfully use and develop our gifts, we bring something of the kingdom of heaven into others' lives. Equally, there are consequences in not using the gifts from God, namely that someone, somewhere misses out. 

    Throughout this week it has really been on my heart to encourage you to notice your talents, because no-one else has the gifts that you have. This is how the church thrives - when we all pool our God-given resources together.

    And so I want to thank you for all that you are doing to keep this alternative 'lockdown form' of church going. Your amazing efforts are not going unnoticed: outreach plans are being made for Christmas which is fast approaching, people are kindly delivering essential communications, numerous social and spiritual zoom meetings are occurring and many of you helped collect the 150 Food bank Christmas hampers, which we will deliver to those in need on 19th December. We simply cannot do ‘church’ without you and your wonderful commitment.

    Prayer 

    Draw your Church together, O God,
    into one great company of disciples,
    together following our Lord Jesus Christ
    into every walk of life,
    together serving him in his mission to the world,
    and together witnessing to his love
    wherever we serve.
    Amen

    God bless your week,

    Revd Rachel Winn, Curate

    Charity and Community Updates 

    Bromley Foodbank - 12 days of Christmas

    Please find a poster here giving details of the needs of the foodbank for Christmas hampers. If you could donate your Christmas items via the black box outside the vicarage by 25th November that would be most helpful. Christmas hampers are already being packed and it takes time to do this and distribute them to the clients

    Keep in touch

    Though we are not able to meet in person at present, we certainly don’t want anyone to feel isolated or alone. If you know anyone who might appreciate a call, do let us know by contacting the Vicar or emailing the Office.

    We also have a prayer team and you can send in prayer requests for yourself or others. 

    Lastly, if you know of someone who would like to receive our weekly newsletter, then forward this email to them and ask them to sign up here.

     
    Keep in touch
     

    Love, prayers and the peace of the Lord Jesus be with you always.
