You will be able to listen to a sermon, join in with worship and prayer-time activities. 
This coming Sunday 27th September at 10am on Zoom Church, we continue our ‘Joseph’ series where our theme will be ‘Forgiveness’. For our activity this week we are inviting you to join in with us in writing, drawing or thinking your prayers onto some strips of paper, and then making some paper chains! Your prayers can be pleases, thank you’s and also sorry’s - asking for forgiveness. Then when you’re finished you can join them all together. Our chains will symbolise the fact that when we are forgiven by God we draw closer to him and our relationship is stronger, and where there is forgiveness in our everyday life with others, it can help heal situations and bring people back together.

Paper chains

Please can you let us know in advance of any upcoming Birthdays or Anniversaries between 27.09.20 – 04.10.20 if you wish to mention them in the Service. Please email robinspittle@btinternet.com

Monday 28th of September 2020- 2.30pm-3.30pm -SILVER SCREEN LITE
One of the sadness’s of Lockdown has been the suspension of our work amongst the so called “silver” generation. From Silver Screen, through Silver Café to Silver Games we were able to spend time together, to socialise and, above all, have a jolly time! As things begin to “open up” we would like to make a small step back to normality with “Silver Screen Lite”.
The proposal is to watch an episode of Fawlty Towers together (with Social Distancing) and encourage everyone who wishes to bring their own refreshments. Because our toilets can only be used in the event of necessity, we are proposing the whole thing to last no longer than an hour with the practicality of leaving at the half way point if needed.
We are planning to meet at 2.30pm on Monday September 28th.If you have not already indicated through the Help Centre that you would like to attend please let Robin know by either phone 623388  or email robinspittle@btinternet.com  Numbers are limited by the need to sit at least 2 metres apart from people who are not in our household.

Tuesday 29nd of September 2020 -10.00am- 11.00am- MESSY CHRUCH at Home 
This coming Tuesday 29th September will be Zoom Messy Church at Home, where our theme will be ‘Creation (Day2) - Sea & Sky’!
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...
- An A4 piece of paper, blue squares or a wave shape for sticking to create the sea, and white paper or cotton wool for clouds; 
OR a colouring sheet printed using this link:-

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

https://www.askesgrave.org/thoughtforthetimes.htm

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.
