Xandie’s Shout Out

Dear All

Hope you  are enjoying half term.

This Sunday we are having a Praise service at 9:15am, so Camilla has time to get to St. Mary’s for the Team service at 10:00am.

The snowdrop walk on Sunday 4th March is here at Underwood, between 2-4pm.  £2 per person or £5 a family, all proceeds for St. Michael’s.

Thank you to all those who braved the filthy weather to come to the Pancake Party last Tuesday 13th, before Lent started on Ash Wednesday. Camilla asked us to think how many hours a week we spend on our tablets, phones, computers and then how much time we spend with God in prayer and at church. She suggested for Lent, we might give up a few minutes each day of our gadget time to spend with Jesus, who gave up his life for us on Good Friday.

God bless

Weekly Sheet 11th February 2018

Dear All
It was lovely to see so many of you at Early Birds. This week it is Messy Church at 4pm in the Hall, so there is NO 9.15am service in the morning.
We look forward to seeing you, as we hear how Daniel was saved from the lions by praying.
Next Tuesday, 13th, is Shrove Tuesday, when we have our pancake party at 4:00-5:00pm in the church. We eat pancakes and have pancake races before the start of Lent the next day – Ash Wednesday.
There will be a 9am service to mark the beginning of Lent – the 40 days that Jesus spent in the desert, preparing for his 3 year ministry.
What kind of a Messiah would he be?
He faced temptation, while he contemplated his future, he prayed for courage to make the difficult  and compassionate choice, death on the cross to save all of us.
Can we try during Lent to make time for Jesus – to pray every day, for our children to pray every day.
To take a few minutes in our busy lives to pause, to thank God for all the blessings he gives us every day.
God bless

Xandie’s Shout Out

This Sunday we have our Early Birds Service at 9:15am in the Hall.
Gill is doing the story –  “suffer little children to come unto Me” (Suffer is an old fashioned word for “allow”)

Please do come and support her.

Next week, Sunday 11th February, there is no 9:15am service as it is Messy Church at 4pm in the Hall.
Tuesday 13th is Shrove Tuesday and our Pancake Party at 4:00pm, please let me know if you can make/bring pancakes – it is amazing how many pancakes children can manage!

And a gentle plea – can you please fill in my Master Rota?
If everybody does 1 sidesman and 1 coffee slot the whole year is covered.
It is not an onerous task – your children will enjoy welcoming people and handing out service sheets and taking the collection.
We are also looking for a Volunteer Treasurer and Volunteer Assistant Treasurer. More details. Job Description – Treasurer and Assistant Treasurer.
Make time in our busy lives to share our talents for God.

Thank you and God bless

Xandie’s Shout Out

Dear All

This Sunday is Super Sunday at 10:00am to celebrate Candlemas, when Jesus, 40 days old,  was presented in the Temple in Jerusalem.

Simeon a very old man, who had been promised by God, that he would not die till he had seen the Messiah, had his Epiphany moment when he saw baby Jesus. He knew He was God. He then said that most beautiful of prayers – Lord, now let your servant depart in peace, I have seen the Light of the World.

Come and join us and hear the full prayer, The Nunc Dimitis, as we bless all the candles we will use at church throughout the year.

Many of you have asked when and who is now in the office.
Monday and Tuesday mornings, Gemma is there, who manages the Hall.
Wednesday and Thursday mornings, Kristel is there, who does church work (and so much more!)

The subject for Messy Church, 11th February is Daniel in the lions’ den. If you would like to help, please let Margaret or Tracy know.

God bless
