This coming Sunday at Zoom church at 10am, we’re continuing our new series where the theme will be ‘congregating & family life’.
Whilst at the moment we’re unable to congregate in person with our wider and church families, due to the wonders of technology and through the power of prayer we can ‘meet’ together in other ways. Our prayer activity for this week is to create paper chain people and decorate them to represent our families. This could be our own family or people from our church family! You can either have a go at drawing them out yourselves or there’s a template you can use if you follow the link below. I love the way that a heart is formed between the people, showing our love for one another! We look forward to seeing your Creations! https://www.pammshouse.com/Project_Paper-Doll-Chain.pdf

I have now produced  “Thoughts For The Times” videos and (amazingly to me) these seem to have been very well received!  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.

Robin

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.
