St Thomas News 5th March 2021

Dear Church Family,

Join in again this Sunday when Rob Hazell will be speaking to us from John 4, where Jesus meets the Samaritan woman. (By the way - who's the biggest person in the Bible? The woman of Samaria - some area, geddit?). Join on Zoom (631 970 6882), Facebook or YouTube.

I'll be on the St Wulstan's Zoom this week - our PCC will be having a meeting with the Archdeacon on Tuesday to talk about the relationship between St Thomas' and St Wulstan's, so please do pray about all this!

St Thomas News 25th February 2021

Dear Church,

We are grateful to have heard the 'roadmap' on Monday, and are now beginning to think about how this will affect our activities at St Thomas'. As always, I am very pleased to hear your thoughts, so please feel free to be in touch.

Today, we had a small communion service in the church building at 12pm. This will happen again next Thursday - please get in touch if you would like to come to a service: we can always do more than one service if numbers are looking high.

St Thomas News 20th February 2021

Dear Church Family,

To begin with some sad news - Laurie Pennock (Dave's dad) died in his sleep on Wednesday night, after long struggles with illness and old age. We pray that Lawrie is finding great joy and release in the presence of his saviour, and we pray for all the family as they grieve his loss.

This Sunday we'll begin to tie our talks in with the themes of the Live Lent readings - we'll be thinking about the Great Banquet in Luke 14 in the livestream service. Please join on Zoom (631 970 6882), Facebook or YouTube
If you haven't already done so, join in with Live Lent: you can sign up for emails or download an app. For a physical booklet, please let me know.

St Thomas News 12th February 2021

Dear Church Family,

I pray you're experiencing God's grace and peace as the lockdown continues - we'll be thinking about God as our Rock (a final look at Psalm 62) in the livestream service this Sunday, as well as hearing an update and praying for Louise in Belgium. Please join on Zoom (631 970 6882), Facebook or YouTube

There are new videos to watch on YouTube/Facebook - both from Sam on Revelation and also from Claire about the building project. Do take a look!

For those who appreciate the small communion services we had been holding, be assured we are keeping this under review hope to move back to a weekly service soon.

Lent: We are going to be doing 'Live Lent' together as a church - short daily readings, and this is what we will theme our Sunday services around in Lent, too. If you would like the daily readings digitally, you can sign up for emails or download an app. For a physical booklet, please let me know.
