The Rector/Reader writes…

Easter time…

Well as I write it seems even one of our favourite national sports, football, isn’t immune to the upheavals and disappointments of this last year, as if there wasn’t enough going on already! Thankfully we’ve been able to meet again in person in our churches over the last few weeks and this looks set to continue, so if you would like space to pray or re-connect then please do join us on a Sunday, 8am or 11am at St.Thomas’, and 9.30am at St. Cuthbert's.

We also continue to meet on zoom at 9.30am on a Sunday with a special (highly recommended!) group for children, please contact Rev Alex or Stephanie in the office if you’d like to join us this way. Hopefully too our baptism services will recommence shortly.
‘Space’ has been one of the challenges of Covid-on the one hand we’ve had to keep our distance and miss familiar contact with friends and colleagues, on the other it’s been hard to make space in our heads to keep track of what is going on. Traditionally one of the ways Christians have looked for relational warmth and clearer thinking is in prayer, and especially prayer together:

God is our refuge and our strength, an ever-present help in trouble…
Be still and know that I am God, I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth…
The Lord Almighty is with us;
The God of Jacob is our fortress (words from Psalm 46)

Please be assured of our prayers for our communities in these times of upheaval, and may I wish you space and peace as we make our way slowly out of lockdowns and restrictions

With very best wishes

Ian Hopkins (Interim vicar)
