Our service this morning was led by Revd Helen Hollands and included Holy Communion.
Our readings for this morning are from Revelation 7:2-4 & 9-12 and Luke 6: 20-31. We paused to remember those who have passed away this last year and thank God for their work in the church and community.
Helen reflected on the story of the Lion King and how this relates to our lives today. Simba realises in the end who he is meant to be, as we need to. We were challenged to think who lives on is us, whose example is it that we embody. We are made in God’s image, all of us.
Our United Service at Cade Road this morning was led by Revd Paul Dean. We listened to readings from Acts 2 and John 14. The reflection was on the coming of the Holy Spirit and the works of the spirit today.
We are promoted by the spirit to share God’s word to others, through stories and our deeds. So we should sustain the miracle of pentecost.
We also take the opportunity to thank Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth for her 70 years of service to the country.
Our service on Sunday will be at Kennington United Church on Faversham Road at 10:30am. We will be testing the live streaming capabilities from the Kennington premises so please keep that in mind if planning on joining online.
There will be a church meeting following this service.
