Weekly Notices 5 Apr 2015
Sunday 5th April (11am) – Easter Sunday – Rev Dr Patrick T. O’Neill preaching
“Agents of Life” – If you are alive and struggling like most people, you do not need to be told that this world is full of brokenness. Our calling as agents of life is to redeem this broken world, to transform it and breathe life into it, breathe love into it, breathe hope and trust and faith and justice into it, every day. To resurrect it in the name of the God of Life. Is this the example of Jesus, the meaning of Easter, that we are all called to be the “Agents of Life” now? Come to church with us this Easter morning!
Sunday 5th April (7pm) – NO EVENING SERVICE
Children’s Programme – This week we will be looking at the Easter story and celebrating renewal and the gift of new growth and new beginnings.
Flowers Dedicated this Sunday – This week’s arrangement was funded by a grant from the Board which covers un-sponsored Sundays.
If you have someone or an event to celebrate or remember, say it with flowers and help decorate the Chapel for our worship together. Contact Sharron – email@example.com
During April our Sunday collection basket will be divided with
‘Toilet Twinning’ project
NOTICES & Dates for your Diaries
Message from the Flower Group – ‘Welcoming the Spring’ – can you help? On Saturday 4thApril (9.30am-12.30pm) we are decorating the Chapel for Easter and the Spring festivals. If you have an hour to spare, do come along. Greenery and spring flowers would also be welcome.
Toilet Twinning – Please support the ‘Toilet Twinning‘ project which provides improved sanitation, clean water and hygiene education in poor communities to help stop children under the age of 5 from dying as a result of dirty water and poor sanitation. When you visit the Chapel, please pop into one of the loos in order to put some money into the collecting boxes. Every time we collect £60 a toilet in a poor community will be twinned with ours .We’re aiming to have a string of them across the world!
Services Next Sunday
Sunday 12th April (11am) – Rev Dr Patrick T. O’Neill preaching
‘A Severer Listening’ – The late poet Adrienne Rich reminded us “…there comes a time…when have to pull back and bestow ourselves to silence, or a severer listening.” The sheer din of modern life – the noise of distractions, demands, and daily obligations – can quickly blot out any quiet call to reflection and centering of our souls. Without the discipline of “severe listening,” we soon have no spiritual life to speak of. This is the first of a two-part sermon. Come join us for worship – and bring a friend!
Sunday 12th April (7pm)
Evening Gathering – ‘Meditation’
The essence of meditation is simply to reach a ‘state of being’ – Come and join us for silence, reflection, poetry and music. Led by Ingrid Tavkar.
