This coming Sunday at Zoom church at 10am, we’re continuing our 'Family Life' series and the theme will be ‘Ceremony & Family Life'.
Our prayer activity this week is to decorate a butterfly with both beautiful colours and the prayers that we would like to offer up to God. In the same way that a caterpillar transforms into a beautiful butterfly, so too will our prayers be transformed by God!

Please click on the link below if you would like to print out the caterpillar and butterfly colouring sheet. Click here if you would like to print out the butterfly I have drawn for you to decorate!


We look forward as always to seeing your creations!

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.
