Sunday 18th July - A Fresh Start


Welcome to worship. We continue our summer series, exploring the big story of God. This week we are looking at Genesis 12:1-9 and the story of the calling of Abram.


Today we have an in person communion service as well as this online service. Our in person service starts at 11am. If you are attending in person normal social distancing rules apply and you will need a mask.


After the service we will meet for a catch up on zoom at 12.30pm. The link is here


Coming Up


As the rules change on the 19th July, watch the video for an update for what how we are approaching this. Whilst all restrictions on corporate worship have been released we believe, given the rising case rates that we need to take a cautious approach, so we will be continuing to encourage social distancing and the use of masks. Singing indoors is back though (we're excited about this one!). Watch the video for more info.

Mid-Week


This week is the final week of our mid week cafe groups before we close for the summer.


We are going to be running Make Lunch in August on Wednesdays (with limited numbers and COVID safe measures in place). If you would like to volunteer to help with Make Lunch please get in touch with Sandra or get in touch with the church office and we will pass the message on.


Jamaica Baptist Union Appeal


London Baptists have asked us to consider whether we might help them to raise funds to help communities in Jamaica who have been affected by flooding. There was terrible flooding in Jamaica before Christmas. Many experienced tremendous damage to infrastructure, loss of livelihood and increased unemployment.


London Baptists say:


“The Jamaica Baptist Union (JBU) have shared with us how the floods affected the country and communities and would like to offer our support. Given our strong links to the country, the London Baptist Board of Directors are pleased to commend this appeal to the churches.

The JBU have assisted in this relief effort in all sorts of creative ways so thus far:


- Helping over 100 small farms with seeds and fertilizer

- Helping over 90 people with shelter and food

- Assisting over 1000 needy/marginalised persons with care packages

- Offering financial support to over 20 ministers that have also suffered”


London Baptists have said that if every church in the association gave £100 they would easily reach their target of £20000, and so the Deacons have agreed to donate £100 from New Addington Baptist Church to the appeal. If you would like personally add anything to that donation so we could send more, then that would be gratefully received.


If you would like to do so, you can put your donation in an envelope labelled “Jamaica Appeal” and pass on to one of the leaders or bring on Sunday or during the week. If you prefer to give by bank transfer, please message Vic with details so that he knows what the donation is for.


Please continue to pray for our brothers and sisters and their communities in Jamaica.


Worship


Call to Worship


"Because he loves me", says the Lord, "I will rescue him,

I will protect him, for he acknowledges my name.

He will call on me, and I will answer him;

I will be with him in trouble,

I will be with him and honour him.

With long life I will satisfy him

and show him my salvation" Psalm 91:14-16


As we come to worship we bring all of our worries and troubles to God. Lay them all before Him now. Ask Him to hold them for you and help to carry their weight as together you work and walk through them. He has more than enough strength for you.


Songs



Here are the songs for this week. You may want to save the last two for after the sermon and then after communion.




Word


Our sermon today is based on Genesis 12:1-9. You may want to read it first. You'll find it here




Communion


Claire leads us in communion, which also includes our prayers of intercession.
