Drop In is restarting

Drop In is restarting this coming Thursday 23rd September at 10 a.m., rather than 9.30 as we used to do.

Do join us if you can. We will be meeting in ASM itself rather than the church rooms as we think the church building is more welcoming. Do come along and let us know what you think.

If you have any questions, please do contact Liz Hunton or the church office.

Dear friends,

I hope you will be able to join Andrea on Saturday and Sunday. I, for one, am also looking forward to breaking the fast of taking communion, and am thrilled that it will be Andrea who is presiding as we do so.

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.

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

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
