Wednesday Worship 30th December

Thursday, December 31st, 2020

Led by Mr Darryl Lomas

Reading Ecclesiastes 3

Starting with the poem ‘Christmas’ by John Betjeman, a custom Darryl has continued over a number of years.

Theme of the service -= It didnt quite work out!

He pointed out the importance of his diary this year in which he had planned for many events in 2020 only to discover that Covid19 had conspired to cancel each and everyone.

The events required planning and provided something to look forward to and who expected to have to wear masks and maintain social distancing.

Ecclesiastes 3 reveals the time for everything. The author of Ecclesiastes reflects on how short and contradictory are our lives.

Darryl concluded by suggesting we need to work hard and enjoy the results. 2020 showed us we were less control than we can imagine. Though we can plan our lives in the diary we actually control nothing.

Remember we are here by God’s grace and it may be later than we think. Ecc 3:15 tells us it is God who makes things happen.

‘Night of Light’ event 13th – 15th December

Thursday, December 10th, 2020

The church garden was illuminated with tea lights in decorated jars from 6.30pm x 8pm. At least 40 people took the opportunity to come along on one of the three evenings whilst many more hung something on the wooden Christmas tree to remember something or someone special. There was also a Nativity window trail where members of the congregation decorated their windows with one aspect of the nativity leading back to the manger scene on the front doors of church. Normally we would have offered warm refreshments but due to Covid this was not possible.
