Weekly Notices



Sunday 4th December - 11h00 - Holy Communion by extension celebrated by Peter Gibbs

The Second Sunday of Advent

The Readings are:-

Isaiah 11:1–10
Psalm 72:1–7,18,19
Romans 15:4–13

The Collect is

O Lord, raise up, we pray, your power
and come among us,
and with great might succour us;
that whereas, through our sins and wickedness
we are grievously hindered
in running the race that is set before us,
your bountiful grace and mercy
may speedily help and deliver us;
through Jesus Christ your Son our Lord,
to whom with you and the Holy Spirit,
be honour and glory, now and for ever.

  • For rain to continue to fall gently and end our drought without flooding and soil erosion.
  • For all in Ukraine and elsewhere are facing a winter of cold, no water and no lighting.
  • For all who are ill especially those who have to live daily with their disability whether physical or mental.
  • For all whose life is near its end.

 

Collection for Restos du Cœur.

Resto du Coeur say that currently they really do just want food. As in the UK people are in fuel poverty too so want anything which can be microwaved or even made edible just by pouring boiling water on them. Also they have a lot of single people as customers so small sizes please! Penelope and Ian will be taking our Christmas delivery there on Tuesday 13th December. 

 

Future Services

There will now be services at Brens on the first and third Sunday of each month and Zoom services on the second, fourth and fifth Sundays of each month.
