Letter from Ian 2nd May
I hope you are all well and coping with the lockdown. I know it can be difficult so do give me a call if you are finding life a struggle at the moment.
Please remember in your prayers this week:
Belinda Singizi - whose father died from coronavirus in London and his funeral is on Monday.
Brian Freeland - who is in Kettering Hospital with a water infection and Margaret who is at home.
Below you will find a link to this week's service, made up of reflections from church members who watched Spring Harvest Home. I hope it is encouraging to see some familiar faces, but I also hope it will be encouraging to hear what they have to say. After the service there are some links to the talks people speak about. You can still go to the Spring Harvest youtube channel and select any of the material that will be available there until the end of May.
Also below (and don't miss it) is a link to the St Columba's Masters Crazy Golf Challenge. This is usually a competition held at Butlin's, so the format was changed this year to design the best "alternative" - I think you will agree they are all winners!
There is the usual ENERGIZE resources for children and young people, Steve's latest puzzles and a prayer from Max Smart - which is included in the service but you may like to print out and keep this version.
Finally there is a notice about the 75th Anniversary of VE Day which is next Friday. It suggests gathering for a socially distant street party! We will be thinking more about VE Day in the service next Sunday.
