Church Prayer – Antrobus

We pray for our continued Fellowship at Antrobus as we celebrate our carol Service today. Bless us and give us the energy to bring a little of the True Message and joy of Christmas to the homes in the village as we enjoy our annual Carol Singing season. With friends from St Marks and the Village we tour the village for six nights raising money for charity. Thank you for all the pleasure it gives us, and we trust in God that we can touch people’s hearts with just the right message at the right time. Happy Christmas everyone.
Minister: Rev Mark Coles

Revd. Linda’s EXTENDED challenge to YOU for Advent

Last week Linda asked “How do you show Gods love?” and gave us all a challenge.

The Challenge is to ask yourself these questions:

  • What are you going to do to this week to show God’s Love?
  • What will you do to recharge and to know God’s love?

Small acts of kindness can make a massive change to someones life. The little things we do often make the biggest difference.

It could be as small as giving a smile, or saying hello to someone in the street. Perhaps paying for someone to have a cup of tea or offer words of encouragement. Offer a helping hand, give flowers to a stranger, or offer to pray with someone.

This week, Linda asks that we continue with this challenge throughout the advent period and she also extended the challenge asking us to buy an anonymous gift “For a stranger with God’s love”.  

If you do something, no matter how small or insignificant you feel it is, Let Iain know and he will publish it on our website.

Either tell Iain, call him, e-mail latchfordmc@outlook.com or click “reply” below this notice on our website. Everything will be treated as anonymous, unless you your happy for your name to be shown. If you reply using facebook then your name will be public and so using the website is best.
Lets see how big a list we can collect.

Please pray for the groups who use Trinity and the outreach work done there. As we celebrate Christ’s birth, let us remember the families whose Christmas is made a happier tie because of the hampers they receive from trinity Kings Cross and give thanks to all the people who support the project. Remember also, the refugees, asylum seekers and trafficked people who are far away from home and fine some companionship at Trinity Safe Space. Amen.
