20th March 2022 - Trust in God in our relationships



Welcome to our online service. This service includes some of the elements from our in person service for those who are not able to make it at 11am. We'd encourage you to begin to come back to our in person services if you can. The opportunity to meet together is good for us and helps us on our Christian journey together.


Today we are continuing in our series on Trust. How can we trust God when people are really irritating? Claire reflects on Colossians 3:12-17. Our in person service includes communion.


Sunday Zone is back - our group for children and young people. We do not have a creche at present, but we do have space to play and toys you can bring into the service for your child if you would like.


Although rules have now relaxed, we would ask you if you are coming in person, that you please take care of one another by ensuring you keep others health to the forefront of your minds. We ask you not to attend in person if you are displaying any symptoms of Covid-19 or have tested positive.


At our recent church meeting we explored together what our members covenant might look like going forward. This has now been formed into a new covenant to be discussed at our next members meeting - you can find this on the members section of our website - please get in touch for the password.

Worship


Call to Worship (Isaiah 40:28-31)


Do you not know?

Have you not heard?

The Lord is the everlasting God,

the Creator of the ends of the earth.

He will not grow tired or weary,

and his understanding no one can fathom.

He gives strength to the weary

and increases the power of the weak.

Even youths grow tired and weary,

and young men stumble and fall;

but those who hope in the Lord

will renew their strength.

They will soar on wings like eagles;

they will run and not grow weary,

they will walk and not be faint.
