Weekly news for 6.12.20

Dear Friends

Here is the latest news, with good news that we can meet for a physical service again, subject to all the Covid protocols we had in place before. Do please also check in with the facebook page www.facebook.com/ccpitsmoor/   and website  www.pitsmoor.church/  during the week as things do change!

A little word

Do not remember the former things or consider the things of old. I am about to do a new thing; now it springs forth, do you not perceive it?                                                                                                                         Isaiah 43.18,19

Do you want to go back to how it was before? Or have you learned something new and better? or at least different? We must be prepared to adapt. In Genesis God’s people were a people on the move. Becoming settled has its dangers. This year has been different; we would like to gather together what we might have learned from that. Be thinking how you might express that in poem, song, picture, or words. Nothing is wasted when we are prepared to learn. More next week…

Christmas Tree

This year we are thinking of having an outdoor Christmas Tree. Could you make a decoration with a positive message that can go on it for someone to take home as a blessing.
