Welcome to our service today. It is great to have you here and we would love to invite you to stay after the service and join us for tea and coffee.
In the midst of this global pandemic we need to remember that God is sovereign and close and compassionate – this will enable us to care for those around us. How might we reflect the mercy and love of God during such a time of national and global crisis? These are extraordinary times. My prayer is that our response will be marked by deep trust in God and loving care for those who are most vulnerable to infection. If you start to feel anxious can I encourage you to read Psalm 121. May it bring you peace and hope as you trust in God, the One who is sovereign and close and compassionate.
I lift up my eyes to the mountains— where does my help come from? My help comes from the Lord, the Maker of heaven and earth. He will not let your foot slip – He who watches over you will not slumber; indeed, He who watches over Israel will neither slumber nor sleep. The Lord watches over you – the Lord is your shade at your right hand; the sun will not harm you by day, nor the moon by night. The Lord will keep you from all harm – He will watch over your life; the Lord will watch over your coming and going both now and forevermore.
With love & blessings,
