Prayer group: Sylvia writes: From Thursday 10th June, from 7-8pm, we hope to be able to meet together in the garden at Holy Trinity Church, and you are all invited. Bring your own garden chair, flask of tea and blanket!! We pray about absolutely anything that God wants us to pray about, which includes everything to do with the life of the 'Village'. Eventually, when we are allowed, we will be able to go in the prayer room again, and I will provide the tea!!
Church spring clean: In order to minimise church expenditure, we are having a church cleaning morning on Saturday 26 June from 09.00-1200. Bring your favourite rubber gloves and cleaning materials. A list is in church for you to sign up so we know who's coming. You will be able to choose where you would like to work on general cleaning, brass cleaning, hoovering, toilet cleaning, etc. Please come along and join in the fun!
Services in church have now resumed. See 'This Week'.
Holy Trinity Church car park: Please note that 24-hour parking controls are now in place to reserve parking in the car park for legitimate users. The scheme is being managed for us by “ParkingEye” and is similar to that used at the pool and some local pubs. The controls will not be operational for services, but you will need to ensure, when visiting at other times, that your registration number is keyed into one of the pads situated in each of our buildings, or risk suffering a fine.
Lectionary Bible readings for Sunday 20 June from the NIV Bible:
2 Corinthians 6.1-13
As God’s fellow workers we urge you not to receive God’s grace in vain. 2 For he says, ‘In the time of my favour I heard you, and in the day of salvation I helped you.’ I tell you, now is the time of God’s favour, now is the day of salvation. 3 We put no stumbling-block in anyone’s path, so that our ministry will not be discredited. 4 Rather, as servants of God we commend ourselves in every way: in great endurance; in troubles, hardships and distresses; 5 in beatings, imprisonments and riots; in hard work, sleepless nights and hunger; 6 in purity, understanding, patience and kindness; in the Holy Spirit and in sincere love; 7 in truthful speech and in the power of God; with weapons of righteousness in the right hand and in the left; 8 through glory and dishonour, bad report and good report; genuine, yet regarded as impostors; 9 known, yet regarded as unknown; dying, and yet we live on; beaten, and yet not killed; 10 sorrowful, yet always rejoicing; poor, yet making many rich; having nothing, and yet possessing everything. 11 We have spoken freely to you, Corinthians, and opened wide our hearts to you. 12 We are not withholding our affection from you, but you are withholding yours from us. 13 As a fair exchange – I speak as to my children – open wide your hearts also.
35 That day when evening came, Jesus said to his disciples, ‘Let us go over to the other side.’ 36 Leaving the crowd behind, they took him along, just as he was, in the boat. There were also other boats with him. 37 A furious squall came up, and the waves broke over the boat, so that it was nearly swamped. 38 Jesus was in the stern, sleeping on a cushion. The disciples woke him and said to him, ‘Teacher, don’t you care if we drown?’
39 He got up, rebuked the wind and said to the waves, ‘Quiet! Be still!’ Then the wind died down and it was completely calm. 40 He said to his disciples, ‘Why are you so afraid? Do you still have no faith?’ 41 They were terrified and asked each other, ‘Who is this? Even the wind and the waves obey him!’
