Rev. Richard Atkinson: May 2020
There are three virtual house groups meeting with folk from around the circuit. If you would like to join one please let me know and I will send you an invitation will provide you with details of how to install zoom (quite straightforward) as well as an access code so you can join the group. We are looking at the Lord's prayer, nothing too heavy I assure you. The usual times are Tuesdays at 7.30pm and Thursday at 10am and 2pm.
Secondly if anyone is interested inbeing part of a virtual prayer group could they let me know
Some churches and circuits are having a virtual coffee gathering on zoom after service on a Sunday. I gather people can be subdivided into groups. I could explore this if enough folk were interested or hopefully someone will know more than me. Let me know if you would welcome this.
Also to say that I if your church has any notices needing delivering again please let me know
To keep you informed there is a meeting this week of representatives of all the circuit churches looking at the road map to re-opening our buildings. More details will hopefully be passed through the various church networks
Also following on from Sunday if you have any questions or comments following on from the service , or indeed other questions that have arisen at this time or that have been in your ind for a while, please do ask. It does not matter how trivial and we will try to help where we can. These could be Biblical, theological or practical, so anything from where does the Bible speak about relationship with the civic authorities, to is there such a thing a s a just war to why do some churches remove all flowers and banners during lent
Also to say I am at the end of the phone line if you would like a conversation. Can I also thanks you for all your doing in the name of Christ in these challenging times.
