Christian Aid Week

10 – 16 May 2021

The climate crisis hurts us all. But people living in poverty fight the worst of it every day.

From drought to flooding, climate change robs people of control over their lives. Extreme weather means people like Rose are struggling to survive without a reliable source of water.

Your gift could help a community build an earth dam, so when the rains do come, they will have the water they need to live. A reliable source of water will help families withstand long drought or relentless rainstorms.

Every envelope. Every gift. Every challenge can change lives.

Psalms Bible Study

In February, we will be starting a Bible study course studying The Psalms. These are 5 x one hour sessions, beginning on Wednesday 27 January at 8pm via the St Mary’s Zoom meeting room and running fortnightly.

Each session will be also run the following Tuesday at 8pm via the St Mary’s Zoom meeting room.

  • Session 1 : 27 Jan & 2 Feb
  • Session 2 : 10 & 16 Feb
  • Session 3 : 24 Feb & 2 Mar
  • Session 4 : 10 & 16 Mar
  • Session 5 : 24 & 30 Mar

You are welcome to attend as many or as few of the sessions as commitments allow. You don’t have to stick to one group as the same material will be used in each. We’d love to see you there.

Foodbanks

There will be an increased need for foodbanks with the negative impact on people’s livelihoods caused by the Covid 19 outbreak. The homeless are still homeless, but those who were vulnerable before will be added to by those newly facing hardship. You can offer support by giving direct to the Bath Foodbank via their website.

Genesis are no longer accepting donations of food from any source other than supermarkets. They are then delivering the food parcels out to those in need, rather than have them come in to collect them.  So please do continue to make food donations at your local supermarkets.  Thank you.

A Message from the Ministry Team

Our Benefice Churches are open daily. Communion services are offered in church at 9.00am as follows:

Cold Ashton 1st Sunday; Marshfield 2nd Sunday; Tormarton 3rd Sunday; West Littleton 4th Sunday.

Jesus called us ‘to love our neighbours as ourselves’ which we do willingly, but our nation also needs us to be a community of prayer. St James wrote that if  ‘anyone lacks wisdom they should ask God for it’. That is something we can do for those with leadership responsibilities at this time, as well as praying for strength in body, mind and spirit for all in healthcare, education and key work and for those who are economically vulnerable, anxious, ill, or bereaved.

May God continue to grant us courage, patience and His protection and healing.                                                        Rev. Sally Wheeler
