Christian Aid Week

 

The collection held at the after service coffee for C.A. raised £70.05 and the collection in the town centre on Friday 17th May raised £412-34. This was a very good result for a hard stint by the collectors in cold damp conditions. Thank you everyone who took part, particularly Simon College who maintained the Precinct stall and John Stuffins who loaned and helped put up the Gazebo.

The total raised including all the churches will be known later.

Thy Kingdom Come

“Thy Kingdom Come…..”
These words trip off the tongue as lightly as they have done since first we learned to say ‘The Lord’s Prayer’
In 2016 the Archbishops of York and Canterbury invited Anglicans to use the days between The Ascension and Pentecost to pray for the renewing power of the Holy Spirit to empower the church for evangelism. Since then THY KINGDOM COME has captured the imaginations of millions of Christians in 114 countries as the idea has spread globally.
The Methodist Church has published a little booklet of suitable prayers, readings and thoughts. We have sent for supplies and these should arrive by May 30th for use until 9th June. More details are in the booklets.
Please accept a copy so we all can pray with others throughout the world for the Kingdom to come soon in many a heart.

Easter Service

Crewkerne Easter Day Worship was led by Rev Mike Parsons, his sermon based on St John’s Gospel chapter 20.
During the first hymn the congregation came forward to help transform the cross by placing flowers on to it to remind everyone that Jesus rose again bringing new life to all. After the service it was place outside the church for those passing by to enjoy its transformation.

Leprosy Mission

Leprosy Mission – Donations
A BIG thank-you to the team of helpers, the thoughtful prayers for the Leprosy Mission with its message of healing
and mission, and to all members of the congregation for their fantastic effort in raising £85.50 : this will be doubled
by the government! So thank you again.
