Thank you all of you at the 9.15 am congregation for your volunteering to help fill the roles that we have at the moment  – please don’t be shy of continuing to volunteer!  Thank you so much for your hard work as we serve God together.

Today we are thinking of the amazing love of God, how He revealed himself to Cornelius and Peter exceeding their understanding and knowledge.  It’s a fabulous story and has been described by some as the story of two conversions – one of Peter and one of Cornelius, but in different ways.

We are following a series of readings from the Acts of the first disciples at the moment and wanted to give you an idea of what’s happening over the next few weeks, so here goes;

19th May Peter and Cornelius (Matthew preaching)

26th May The Holy Spirit will teach us (Rev Neil Struthers preaching)

2nd June Ascension – where are you going? (Matthew preaching)

9th June Pentecost (Rev Ron Hay preaching)

16th June Trinity Sunday (Rev Neil Struthers preaching)

23rd June What do you want with me Jesus? (Matthew preaching)

30th June 10.00 All Age combined service (Claire/Matthew)

Also on the 26th May at 10.30am between the services we will have a (short) special general meeting to vote for people for the Vestry, Synod and Warden.  We are still looking for nominations – and forms are available from the office.

Please continue to pray for one another – remember the words of Jesus from our Gospel reading today – ‘Love one another.  As I have loved you, so you must love one another.  By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another’

Blessings

Matthew and Claire
