Sunday 27th September 2020

As Covid-19 restrictions are tightened across the country thank you for your keeping of those restrictions as we gather together.  As we move into the Autumn and Winter months please do remember to continue to adhere to these requirements - particularly with regards to keeping social distancing before, during and after worship; the wearing of face masks; and the sanitising of hands before and after worship.  Thank you!

There is a Harvest Service on Sunday 4th October at 10.30am  Please leave non-perishable goods for donation to Basics Bank at the Chancel Step on entering the church before taking your seat.  Please can you ensure that the goods have a long use-by date. Suggested donations could include: tins of meat; tins of vegetables; tins of fruit & toiletries.  Thank you. 

Kay Pead’s Ordination Service will take place on Sunday 4th October at Winchester Cathedral at 10am.  The Service will be live-streamed so it could be watched then or at a later time.  The link is: https://youtu.be/ZOHk4SbQ7Pw

Please could you pray for Kay, and the others being ordained, so that they would know blessing, infilling and affirming in their calling, and for the practicalities that everyone would be well enough, and not self-isolating, to be ordained.

Bunches of flowers will be in the porch some Sundays - please take one to give to someone who would appreciate the thought. They are surplus from supermarkets and being given by Helping Hands, Open Arms who are distributing donated items.

 

Good News – Reuben and Becca were engaged last Sunday and are planning to get married next year.  Please pray for them and for their future lives together.

 

Alpha Online

We are now planning to run Alpha online.  Many churches have done this throughout the year and have reported seeing a significant impact on the guests and leaders who took part.  We plan to run the course across the Group (with Boldre and South Baddesley) in January – March 2021 and to do this we need a team to help with planning, advertising, organising, and delivering the course.  If this is something you think you might be interested in helping to make happen then do contact Simon Newham on vicar@brockenhurstchurch.com by no later than Monday 2nd November.

 

Let’s Walk Together: A Walk for Creation – Saturday 10th October 10am

The three churches in Brockenhurst have joined together to plan an ecumenical “Walk for Creation” on Saturday 10th October.  Everyone is welcome – people of all faiths and none – Let’s walk together to appreciate the wonderful world we live in!  Dogs welcome too.  The walk will be around 2 miles, with frequent pauses for reflection and prayer, and hopefully lots of chat in between.  We still start and end at Ober Corner car park and hope to serve coffee and cakes at the end – please bring your own mug!  We will go ahead whatever the weather!

Its fine to just turn up on the spur of the moment, but if you know you plan to come it would be great if you could let us know just so we can make sure we have enough of the important stuff (cake) 😊.  Please register your interest by calling or emailing our Church Office on, 624584 or office@brockenhurstchurch.com
