Readings for Daily Prayer July 16th to August 31st 202

Dear Friends,

I trust you are all well, and staying cool in this heat.

The school holidays begin at the end of next week. Hockering and Yaxham Primary schools will be holding services to say thank you and goodbye to their year 6 leavers.

Transitions form Primary to high school can bring about mixed emotions. Please do pray for them that they will all feel a sense of peace and readiness for the journey ahead of them. Pray also for those who will be visiting their new teachers for the first time in reception class and for their parents letting go it can be an emotional time for them too.

For those of you taking the opportunity to go on holiday or visit family or friends I hope and pray that you will be energised, refreshed and rested.

Bible readings  for Morning Prayer from Sat 16th July – 31st August can be downloaded from HERE. The liturgy remains in ordinary time.

With every blessing

Andrea

More on Richard Wurmbrand

A couple of weeks ago I mentioned in my sermons at ASM Richard Wurmbrand, the Romanian pastor who suffered so dreadfully for being a follower of Jesus during the Communist era in his country. J. John actually has him as the subject of his most recent blog on "Heroes of the Faith" at https://canonjjohn.com/2022/07/09/heroes-of-the-faith-richard-wurmbrand/

Morning Prayer for ordinary time after Pentecost 2022

Dear All,

‘O Lord our Lord how majestic is your name in all the earth.

When I look at your heavens, the work of your fingers,
the moon and the stars that you have established;
what are human beings that you are mindful of them, mortals that you care for them?’ Psalm 8:1,3-4

I expect we are all looking forward to the Jubilee week end and all the wonderful and varied activities that have been organised in our villages, our church services when we will be marking her Majesty’s life of faith and service.

As we celebrate we the Jubilee this week end  we will also mark Pentecost – When the Holy Spirit renewed the church afresh and people from every tribe and language were able to hear the Good News of Jesus Christ and the hope of a restored relationship with God. Following Pentecost the Church moves into ordinary time, that time between Easter Season and Christmas Season.

I wonder what the word Ordinary means to you? Perhaps in means common or usual or unremarkable.

What is ordinary for me may be different for you we all see the world through our own lens, yet there may be similarities.

In all reality, our ordinary days aren’t actually as ordinary as we think. I believe God’s miraculous hand provides for us every morning as the sun wakes us in the east. Throughout the day (and night), our Sustainer provides for us–in shelter and food, in our work and in our play, and in our relationships with one another. Day in and day out, God is present–continuously providing, sustaining, and re-creating. The extraordinary God is found in the ordinary moments of the day. I wonder where your ordinary moments will be made extraordinary today.

A new season also brings a new set of readings for Morning Prayer  .

The Liturgy and Readings for the next 6 weeks is available HERE.

Please do use it to aid your prayer time and who knows God may lead  your ordinary day into a most extraordinary day.

With every blessing

Andrea

Easter Family Fun Afternoon

Hi everyone,
 
Easter is upon us!
 
This coming Saturday is the Easter Fun Afternoon. Starting and finishing at All Saints Church, Mattishall at 1.30 pm until 4.00 pm.
The Village Trail (about 45mins – 1 hour) will be followed by refreshments back at church, with an interactive story and action songs. There will be a prize for the winner of the trail. However, unfortunately due to several team members testing positive for Covid we have had to cancel the craft activities.
We are sure you can still have a fun time and experience something of Easter in a safe and enjoyable environment. Looking forward to welcoming you.

Morning Prayer for Easter Season 2022

Dear Friends,

A very Happy Easter to you all.

I look forward to seeing some of you over the week end. For those of you who are away I hope you have a wonderful break. I will be holding in prayer all of you I know who are unwell or recovering.

As we remember Jesus death and complete separation from God because of the weight of our sin on Good Friday  and as we celebrate his victory over death and his rising on Easter Sunday  let us never forget that Easter means Forgiveness, friendship with God an invitation to follow Jesus and an opportunity to share with others the Fantastic Hope that we have through the Love of Jesus Christ our Lord.

Liturgy and readings for Easter Season can be found HERE.

With every blessing

North Tuddenham Services

We are continuing to have problems with the repair of the church tower of St. Mary's at North Tuddenham, with the expected date of completion still uncertain. For the time being, there will be no services in the church building itself apart from during the festival weekend on 8th May.

We are hoping to have some services in the village hall and will let you know when these will be when we know ourselves.
