Roger Kirk: September 2020
During the lock down, people have been sending me cheques by post or making a direct payment to the Church bank account. Now that services have re commenced you can revert to taking your collection to Church in the normal way. However, if you decide not to attend Church yet, please continue sending cheques to me, made payable to "Aylesbury Methodist Church".
Thank you to all those who switched to a monthly standing order from your bank. This lightens the load on the stewards and collection volunteers, as well as reducing the handling of cash.
Many thanks also to the 13 people who responded to my appeal for one-off donations to help replenish our much depleted cash balances. This raised £6300. Any more donations would be welcome.
Finally, we now have a "Donate" button on the web site which can be used for one-off donations

Continuing the 'new life in Christ' theme, David reflects on the law and sin and Romans 7:7-13.The Law and Sin7 What shall we say, then? Is the law sinful? Certainly not! Nevertheless, I would not have known what sin was had it not been for the law. For I would not have known what coveting really was if the law had not said, "You shall not covet." 8 But sin, seizing the...
