Here’s the news for the week. Do remember to check in to our facebook page or the website regularly for updates.
Do not neglect the gift that is in you… Put these things into practice, devote yourself to them, so that all may see your progress. 1 Tim 4.14-15
Paul is writing to his protégé Timothy. It is about keeping going in the face of difficulty and being true to his call. Timothy’s gift was teaching, but yours might be something else. Administration and hospitality are among others held up in the New Testament. You have something to offer, a part to play if you like, as part of the body of Christ in Pitsmoor, part of our team here. If it is neglected, we are all the poorer for it.
Things to pray for
- Give thanks for how God has made you. The gifts you have to offer.
- for those not able to join us in person at services
- schools and groups taking a ½ term break
In-Church worship Sunday at 10am. Holy Communion with CoGs group for children.
What does the Lord require?
Face coverings please and be especially conscious of how some people will still want to be cautious.
You can also watch by live-stream on the church facebook page.
This week’s readings are: Micah 6.1-8
10am on Thursday
Holy Communion in Church
What is our purpose?
For this month we are asking some big questions. Why are we here? And for whom? What are we all about? What does love look like here?
Our Sunday talks will hopefully get our minds thinking along these lines. There is also a sheet with the following five questions.
- What is ‘Church’ for? Why are we here?
- Who is ‘Church’ for? For whom are we here?
- What might that look like in our setting?
- What is different about this now than say 5yrs ago?
- How can we engage others in this conversation?
Take a sheet and respond. You might well value doing it with someone to spark thoughts off each other. Pop it in the box when you are done.
Craft & Chat
Craft and Chat is restarting on Mondays in the Welcome Centre, 3.30 – 5.30pm. All are welcome.

During Lent we will be encouraging you to join us in a daily reading, reflection, and prayer around the theme of justice. There will be a little booklet for everyone with all the material you need.
On Sunday evenings there will be a reflective space to introduce the weekly theme. Do look out for details in the next couple of weeks.
