DIFFICULT QUESTIONS Zoom Mini-Conference-
Wednesday 3rd of June ,7.30pm-9.00pm
As an extension of our "Bible Study"
evenings we are going to hold Zoom Mini-Conference where we can discuss
“If You could ask God one question, what would it be?”
Please submit your question using the link to the form below by 24.05.20 in
order to have it included in a discussion group. All questions (asked
beforehand and on the night) will have at least a suggested "simple"
answer by Robin and there will be the opportunity to discuss three of them in a
smaller group, led by a member of the Ministry team. For those of you who
prefer to listen rather than speak, no one will be under pressure to comment in
the smaller group.
Everyone will then be able to choose their three questions from an advance list of about six main questions.
If you do not wish to send your question, but just would like to attend Mini-Conference, please email Robin Spittle email@example.com to express your interest and receive the link to Zoom Mini-Conference .

A message from your Vicar
We wish to assure you that as a church we are continuing to monitor and if necessary, update our decisions and practices with regards to the COVID-19 pandemic. During this time of national and world-wide uncertainty, we will of course continue to adhere to rules and guidance as set out by the Government, The Church of England and the Diocese of St.Edmundsbury. We have therefore cancelled all our services and meetings until further notice.However, please see below details of our online services:

This coming Tuesday 19th of May at 10.00am will be Zoom Messy Church at All Saints, where our theme will be ‘Wise and Foolish Builders’.
We’d love for you to join us at 10am for some crafting, singing and story time fun, and of course bubble prayers!
You will find the following items useful...
- A picture of a house, either hand drawn or printed using this link from ‘Let their light shine’ : https://lettheirlightshine.com/
- Colouring pens/crayons, tissue paper or any colourful stickers or crafty items (feathers, Pom poms etc) to decorate your house, plus suitable glue to stick them on with.
- A square piece of white paper and colouring pens (for origami houses!)
- Duplo, Lego or building bricks if you’d rather build a house than colour!
We look forward to seeing you then!

Tuesday 19th of May -7.00pm-8.00pm - ZOOM ALPHA
Exploring is good. We’re built for it. But for all our searching – it’s rare to find time to think, and talk, about the big questions of life; about faith and reason and God and meaning.
Light wave are running a midweek alpha on zoom starting with a taster session at 7.00pm-8.00pm on Tuesday 12th May. Alpha is a series of sessions exploring the Christian faith. It runs all around the globe, and everyone's welcome.

I have now produced “Thoughts For The Times” videos and (amazingly to me) these seem to have been very well received! Apparently you can subscribe to get updates about future “episodes”. They can be accessed through this website
To help us communicate with each other our Ministry Team are using Zoom for Morning Prayer and a Staff Meeting each Monday
Look out for the Prayer, Listening and Practical Support Schemes that are coming into practice

At the moment we are still allowing funerals at All Saints. Having said that the number that are allowed to attend is very low and the suggestion is that a basic funeral can be followed by a Thanksgiving Service later in the year. I want to reassure those who can’t attend that to simply remember their loved one at home during the time of the service is both itself appropriate and also what that loved one would want them to do.
Please be assured that the community of Kesgrave is continually in our thoughts and prayers at this difficult time.
A prayer for this time of difficulty...
Keep us, good Lord,
under the shadow of your mercy.
Sustain and support the anxious,
be with those who care for the sick,
and lift up all who are brought low;
that we may find comfort
knowing that nothing can separate us from your love
in Christ Jesus our Lord. Amen.
