Church Service Sunday 24th January 2021 3rd Sunday of Epiphany – 9:30am
Private Prayer at All Saints, Marthall
Every effort is being made to ensure that we can continue to meet in a safe environment. In order that we can do this the following COVID restrictions must be followed. If you fall into a ‘vulnerable group’ please stay in your own home and use some of the online offerings or the radio or television services.
If you do feel able to join us, seats will be allocated on a ‘first come, first served basis’, facemasks must be worn as you enter the church until you leave the church. Please ensure that these cover your nose and mouth at all times. Social distancing must be maintained at all times and you are asked to leave the building in a responsible manner and to not congregate in the churchyard.
This Sunday, our readings lead us think about where we see God at work in our daily lives. Our readings are: Genesis Chapter 14 verses 17-20, Psalm 128, Revelation Chapter 19 verses 6-10 and John chapter 2 verses 1-11. Today’s readings talk about food and drink and celebrations but in
all the passages there are signs of God’s glory at work. Once the pandemic is over and we can join together to celebrate Holy Communion, perhaps you would like to joins us to give glory and praise to God.
Things to do today:
Think about some of the unexpected places you see God at work.
Think about people whose random acts of kindness have surprised you.
Think about events which you have been at that haven’t gone quite as you expected but turned out even better than you anticipated.
Talk with your friends and family how you could be God’s surprising messenger showing Jesus’ love to people who haven’t yet heard about the Good News.
God bless and stay safe and well.
