Bulletin – 16th April 2020

Church Bulletin

Alleluia! Christ is Risen!

This message proclaimed by an angel and then those early disciples of Jesus was made to an indifferent world.  The vast majority of the first century world was unaware who Jesus was and that he had died in the first place.  Those who did know, despite his many warnings, could not believe it.  One of the most convincing proofs of the resurrection is that there is hardly a corner of the world two thousand years later that has not heard this news.  How is this possible except that it be true?

Easter

We will continue to celebrate the joy and glory of the resurrection on Sunday at 10 a.m.  as we listen to the story of Thomas, the one to whom Jesus said: “Because you have seen, you have believed.  Blessed are those who have not seen and yet have believed.”  You can take part in this by visiting our website at 10 a.m. and clicking on the service at the top of the right-hand column.

Coffee

Approximately 20 people joined our virtual coffee time last Sunday.  This will take place after the service at 11 a.m. via zoom.  Please click the link below to join us.  Hope to see you then.

Passion of the Christ

Kate Dagger has enquired whether anyone has a copy of the Passion of the Christ DVD?

Bulletins

This is the only bulletin this week, but we will be back to normal next week with issues on Mon, Weds and Friday.

Food shopping

A reminder that we are here to shop!  Please don’t wait until the cupboards are bare to ask for help.  A couple of days notice is very helpful.  Please contact Julie for assistance on 07756 918847 or administrator@standrews-eg.org.uk

Food Hub volunteers

I am delighted by the response from would-be volunteers to help with the emergency food hub in Tile Hill.  We are fully staffed and have a healthy waiting list.  Don’t let that discourage you if you want to offer.  We are currently scheduled to open 10-12 Tuesdays and Thursdays but may need to open more often if the crisis deepens.

Christian Aid

If like me, you have been saving for Christian Aid by following the Count Your Blessings sheet, please note that you can make your donation on line via caid.org.uk/lent  £25 could buy two bags of cement to help with the construction of a dam to help in the battle against climate change in the developing world.

On a similar note, there is a climate justice petition you might like to sign.  This can be found at caid.org.uk/climate-justice-petition

“Everybody think of changing humanity and nobody thinks of changing himself” Leo Tolstoy

Thanks to Kate Dagger for reminding me of that quote.
