Dan Gower from Open Doors

Dan Gower from Open Doors

On Sunday 3rd March, Dan Gower from Open Doors is coming to tell us more about Open Doors and their work with persecuted Christians around the world. Open Doors is a non-denominational mission supporting persecuted Christians around the world. They work with local partners to distribute Bibles and Christian literature, give discipleship training and provide practical support, such as emergency relief aid. Open Doors' stated aims are to raise awareness of global persecution, mobilising prayer, support and action among Christians from around the world. Over 365 million Christians face persecution and discrimination - that's one in seven believers worldwide. You can stand with believers counting the highest cost for following Jesus.

Since becoming a Christian 40+ years ago, finding out about Open Doors, their work with persecuted Christians and hearing, at Open Doors events, from persecuted Christians from places like North Korea, Nigeria and Syria have been the biggest challenge - and encouragement - for me in all that time.

If you want to find out what real Christianity is all about, do come to one of our services on 3rd March. There will be more information at the 10.30 since we have more flexibility in the length of the service, but you are welcome to come to either (9.00 or 10.30).

Mark my Word and John - The Word becomes Flesh

8 months ago

 
Mark my Word and John - The Word becomes Flesh

TICKETS NOW AVAILABLE AT https://tinyurl.com/MATVMarkAndJohn 

In the Mattishall and Tudd Valley benefice we use the Church of England lectionary when planning which texts to use as the basis of our sermons on Sundays. The lectionary is used by several major denominations and its aim is to help ensure that, over a 3 year period, the most important subjects get preached on at some point. With the New Testament Matthew's gospel is used one year (Year A), then Mark's the following year (Year B) and finally Luke's (Year C) before going back to Matthew and repeating the cycle. At certain important points in the church year (largely Christmas and Easter) parts of John's gospel are used each year. At certain points in the year (again around Christmas and around Easter) we are required to use some of the texts set for each Sunday, though there is some choice possible, but the rest of the year we can choose other readings if we so wish, e.g. if we want to do a series on something, such as the Beatitudes, which we did some time back.

Each new church year starts at the start of Advent and in 2023 it is 3rd December 2023. Thus, this December we will be entering Year B and hence will be majoring on Mark's gospel and continuing to use John's as required.

We are, therefore, taking the opportunity to ask Sue Woan back to spend a morning with us looking at Mark's gospel and then John's gospel after lunch.

 

  • "Mark my word" - an exploration of Mark's gospel, will include extra focus on Mark’s beginnings and endings, which are very different from the other gospels. Why?
  • "John - the Word becomes flesh" – includes a focus on the differences from synoptics (Matthew, Mark and Luke), the ‘signs’ and the I AM sayings which so shocked the Jewish leaders.

Sue has previous led days at ASM on "A Romp Through The Old Testament" and "Walking in New Testament Sandals", which have gone well. As with those previous events, there is no charge for the day, though contributions would be welcomed.

Maundy Thursday Agape

Maundy Thursday Agape

Dear friends,

In 2019 Fiona and I hosted a Maundy Thursday Supper at ASM, which seemed to go well. However for obvious reasons we were unable to do it in 2020-2022, so we are planning it again this year.

It will be at All Saints Mattishall on Maundy Thursday (April 6th) at 6pm and is an informal communion service with a light supper (soup, salad, cheese and ham) and set of meditative readings as we reflect on the Last Supper.

Fiona will be catering, so will be grateful to know if you are hoping to come. Please contact her at fmccaghrey@hotmail.com by 9am Wednesday 5th April, giving her any dietary requirements. We will be over-catering, so don’t worry if you haven’t signed up, but if you think you are likely to come please do let her know so we can get the amounts right.

If you like to know roughly what it will look like before you come, then please see  the schedule for 2019 that Mark sent round by email. The readings and songs will be different this year, but the general format will be the same.

With every blessing,

Mark

No previous knowledge of the New Testament is required, but please bring a bible if you can (we will have some available to borrow as well). Sandals are optional!

The event is free, though any donations would be welcome. Bring your own lunch. Drinks will be provided throughout the day.

Advent Quiet Morning

‘Come with Me  by yourselves to a quiet place and get some rest.’   Mark 6:31b 

The Advent Quiet Morning is an opportunity to take some time out during this busy season. The morning will be centred on reflecting on scripture followed by some personal quiet time where you can engage with God in reflective and creative spaces, explore the thought provoking  Prayer Walk or simply rest in His presence.

If you've never been on a retreat, the Quiet Morning is a good place to explore what that would be like. 
You don’t have to stay for the whole morning, but you’ll get the most out of your time if you’re there from the start. 
Some find it helpful to bring a notebook or journal. 
We hope to see you there.

Not only Red in Tooth and Claw - Cooperation as an Evolutionary Principle

Not only Red in Tooth and Claw - Cooperation as an Evolutionary Principle

Mattishall and Tudd Valley Benefice is hosting the Starbridge Lecturer in Theology and Natural Sciences, and Parker Preacher for 2020, Revd Dr. Andrew Davison at a Webinar on Zoom.

In his will in 1575, Matthew Parker, Archbishop of Canterbury to Elizabeth I, and Norfolk born, established the Parker Sermon – an annual sermon given on Rogation Sunday in Thetford and Mattishall by an appointee of Corpus Christi College, Cambridge with the purpose of education and edification.

This year, the Parker Preacher is the Dean of Corpus Christi College, and Starbridge Lecturer, Andrew Davison. In his life experience, Andrew bridges both Science and Theology. Andrew read Chemistry in the 1990s followed by a DPhil in Biochemistry. After ordination, he completed a PhD in philosophical theology at Cambridge, followed by ministry, teaching, lecturing and writing at Oxford and Cambridge, laterly moving to Cambridge and then taking up the position of Dean of Chapel at Corpus Christi in 2019.

His wide ranging career includes his year as a fellow at the Center of Theological Inquiry in Princeton, New Jersey, on a NASA-sponsored programme to consider the implications for human society and self-understanding of life elsewhere in the universe, examining the significance of such 'exobiology' for the main aspects of the Christian faith and his book “Participation in God: A Study in Christian Doctrine and Metaphysics”, published in 2019.

As an expression of Matthew Parker’s vision for his sermon series, Andrew will be giving an illustrated webinar on 9th June 2020, on the topic of mutualism, or cross-species cooperation, another area of research for him. This webinar is free and open to all and will be held via Zoom on 9th June 2020 at 7:30pm, with the Zoom meeting ID of 883 7386 3056 and password of 563198.

TIPS FOR THE USE OF ZOOM DURING OUR MEETINGS
=============================================
When you have joined use "Gallery view" to see who else is in the meeting and say, "Hello" if you want to.

Try to ensure the name you use when you join the meeting is a useful one, e.g. "Alan Cossey" rather than "Samsung Galaxy 7". If you forget to do it on entering, you can alter it once you have joined.

When the service has finished, but while the Zoom meeting is still running, use "Gallery view" again to see who is still there and wave to people as we say, "Goodbye" to each other.

Joint online worship for all the benefice - Easter Sunday

Leaders:

On Sunday 12th April, Easter Day, at 10:00 (gathering from 9:45) we will be having a Celebration Service with Breaking of Bread (https://zoom.us/j/224497494?pwd=TllUOE5qNHRadHpTQ1ZnQlIwZ0puQT09) Our circumstances may be peculiar or even heartbreaking, but Jesus is still Risen, so we will be gathering via Zoom for a service of praise and celebration on Easter Day. This service will be similar to our previous acts of Sunday Worship using Zoom, but we will be Breaking Bread together as well. We can’t have communion in its traditional sense, but we can still have a shared meal: just as Jesus revealed himself to the despairing disciples on the road to Emmaus through the breaking of bread (Luke 24:30) so we be gathering via Zoom to share in an act of breaking of bread together. Please bring enough bread to share with everyone who is in your household on Sunday as you ‘socially distance’ or ‘shield’ yourself to the service. The rest will be explained on Sunday. Again, we are looking for bible readers and people willing to pray. Please tell us you can help using this link: https://bit.ly/2xcxDZZ This service uses the same Meeting ID for our act of worship last week (and this will stay the same for all our Sunday Worship services in the future). Zoom Meeting ID: 224-497-494 Please see the Online Worship Together section for helpful tips for when taking part in our services.

Joint online worship for all the benefice - Act of Witness

On Friday 10th April, Good Friday, at 11:00 (gathering from 10:45) we will be having an Act of Witness focusing on Mattishall (https://zoom.us/j/897946949?pwd=ZWQ5NlV2NmZLcmJvdkdrcDBncXJPdz09). Every year we have a ‘Walk of Witness’ joining the three church families who meet in Mattishall together with Christians who live in Mattishall but worship outside the village. Obviously, we can’t do that this year, but we are still going to pray for the village and use Zoom to join us together. We will be virtually ‘following’ our usual path through the village from the Evangelical Church down to All Saints Mattishall with stations along the way for singing, readings and prayer. Again if you are able to join and help with a reading and/or prayer let us know using the link: https://bit.ly/2xcxDZZ Zoom Meeting ID: 897-946-949

Joint online worship for all the benefice - Service of shadows

On Thursday 9th April, Maundy Thursday, at 19:30 (gathering from 19:15) we will be having a Service of Shadows (https://zoom.us/j/186010229?pwd=eFA4NDB0VnZEa0RvVzJ2anBBZnQwUT09) This is based on the ancient service of Tenebrae and is a service of readings, songs, music and candles as we journey with Jesus from the Last Supper to the foot of the Cross. Last year we used a variation of this service for the first time in the benefice, but are adapting things for the Age of Zoom. It features ten readings, so we will need ten readers. If you are happy to help please let me know using this link: https://bit.ly/2xcxDZZ Please bring with you a candle, preferably a tea light if you have one, as we will be using the candles in our worship. (Just make sure you aren’t like that Vicar who set light to himself while live-streaming). Zoom Meeting ID: 186-010-229
