Week beginning Sunday 7th May 2017

St. John’s Patronal Festival

‘We declare to you what we have seen and heard...’ 1 John 1 v3

Thought for the week: ‘Pass on the Good News’

‘Those who saw the Risen Jesus were quick to spread the news and they were also prepared to die for their witness. The Good News that ‘Jesus is alive’ has been passed on to you and me. It is now up to us to continue passing this on to the next generation. May the Holy Spirit give us the gifts for this task.’

Pray:

•          For personal renewal in the Holy Spirit – and         inspiration to follow Jesus on the right pathway.

•          For our life together and our mission.

•          For an end to the war in Syria.

•          For Christians serving the Lord in tough places -   especially for Christians in Egypt, Pakistan & Syria.

Notices:

Rogation Sunday Walk – Sunday 21st May at 2.30pm

The Sixth Sunday of Easter is traditional Rogation Sunday – The word ‘rogation’ is derived from the Latin, ‘rogare’, which means to plead or ask. This was the traditional time to pray for a successful harvest, often with processions around the parish boundaries. We will meet at St. John’s at 2.30pm for walk, bringing us back by 4pm.

Ascension Day Service

Come and join us at St Georges Church in Britwell on Thursday 25th May at 7.30pm – This will be a joint service for our Northern Group of Parishes.
