Weekly news for 2.6.24

Dear Friends,

Here is the update for this week.

A little word 

‘Amen! Praise and glory and wisdom and thanks and honour and power and strength be to our God for ever and ever. Amen!’ Revelation 7.12 (NIV)

This week we are thinking about Praise. In my bible it is mentioned 363 times, including 182 in the Psalms alone. That is an awful lot of praise! Clearly it is something we should note. Praise, thankfulness, and gratitude are really positive attributes to life. Cultivating it in all we do makes us and those around us feel better and helps us to connect with our God

Things to pray for

  • Give thanks for all we can give praise for. Write a list of 10 things to be thankful for.
  • For Will and Lucy and the girls as they have a holiday.
  • For the life of Violet Chong, and for Lance and the family.

Upcoming Events

Harry Baker

We are excited to welcome Harry Baker back to Christ Church Pitsmoor on Tuesday 25th June at 7:30pm. He brings his new tour, Wonderful:

“After a sellout Edinburgh Fringe Run and subsequent 40-date UK Tour, World Poetry Slam Champion Harry Baker is back with a brand new show celebrating the wonder that is being alive. Featuring brand new poems about death, postcodes and his favourite German wheat bear Schöfferhofer, The maths-loving, TED-talking, German-speaking, battle-rapping, happy-crying, self-bio-writing unashamed human brings his signature playfulness and poignancy that has made him a fan favourite and reached millions of people all over the world.”

Will’s Ordination

Will’s ordination to the priesthood will be on Saturday 29 June at 4pm at Sheffield Cathedral. If you know you want to attend let Pip know as there are some ticketed seats available. (There should be room for everyone we just can’t guarantee you a posh seat!)

On Sunday 30 June, when we welcome our friends from St Peter’s, it will be Will’s first celebration of Holy Communion. We will have a Bring & Share lunch together afterwards – full details nearer the time.
