26th September - The wrong time to buy a field?


Welcome to our online service. This service is a replica of our in person service at 11am. If you are planning on joining in person, please bring a mask for singing. This week is a communion service (words are included below if you cannot make it in person). Sunday Zone is running and they will be following the same theme.


Last week we had a great celebration with Janet and Lionel's baptisms. If you missed the service and would like to catch up with what they said and did then the playlist is here https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLpjjKKRkCdv04lAq8NpOL-a_XjvU_EULv


Harvest


As we move into the autumn we will only have one all age service a month, on the first Sunday of the month. October's all age service (next week!) is our Harvest service. This year we are stocking up our own pantry with goods - we're expecting our food parcel work to increase as Universal Credit decreases and the furlough scheme ends. Any monetary donations will go to NightWatch who work with the homeless in Croydon. For details of what we need for our pantry see here


After the service next week we are staying for a soup lunch, all are welcome to join us.

Call to Worship


Romans 8:31-39 The Message


So, what do you think? With God on our side like this, how can we lose? If God didn’t

hesitate to put everything on the line for us, embracing our condition and exposing himself to the worst by sending his own Son, is there anything else he wouldn’t gladly and freely do for us? And who would dare tangle with God by messing with one of God’s chosen? Who would dare even to point a finger? The One who died for us—who was raised to life for us!—is in the presence of God at this very moment sticking up for us. Do you think anyone is going to be able to drive a wedge between us and Christ’s love for us? There is no way! Not trouble, not hard times, not hatred, not hunger, not homelessness, not bullying threats, not backstabbing, not even the worst sins listed in Scripture.........


.........None of this fazes us because Jesus loves us. I’m absolutely convinced that nothing—nothing living or dead, angelic or demonic, today or tomorrow, high or low, thinkable or unthinkable—absolutely nothing can get between us and God’s love because of the way that Jesus our Master has embraced us.


Songs for today


You might want to save the last two for after the sermon and after communion



What is God like?


As we read our story from Jeremiah today we learn a lot about God and how he cares for His people. What is God like? If someone asked you that question how might you answer them?


Watch this story which tells you a bit more about what God is like




Pray and give thanks to God for all he is to you
