Giving Money – it is lovely that we are a very generous church.  Please could we ask that people don’t give money to people who have come to church for help due to hardship.  We do help these people regularly, but giving money often puts other temptations in their way so it isn’t always the best thing.  If you’re unsure please speak to Clare (and give her the money if need be!!)

Sunday 23 October 2022 – All Age Communion Service

Lantern Festival

Recipes and Stories

We have some funding for community cohesion around a possible GHM recipe book,  The idea would be to tell a story that relates to a recipe – maybe a family favourite, or something that matches with a special memory.  We hope that this can bring community together to talk, share and cook.  Also it would result in our very own recipe book.  Can you think if you’d like to contribute or if it is something you can help us with.  Ask Michelle for more details or Contact us.

Sunday 9th October 2022 – Breakfast Church and Prayer and Praise – I am the way the truth and the life

This Sunday we have Breakfast Church – St Paul’s Church – 10.30am.  Please bring someone along if you haven’t before.  This is our service that is deliberately aimed at people who are not used to Church.  If Breakfast Church isn’t really your cup of tea (and croissant!) then perhaps Prayer and Praise at 7pm – St Philip’s Church might be something to try.  We follow the same theme, but there is more singing and a more intimate feel.

Sunday 11th September 2022 – Baptisms, Confirmation and Commemoration

 

On Sunday we have our Baptism Service – clearly it will be a little different due to the death of HM Queen Elizabeth II.

Bishop Toby will be joining us for this special occasion appropriately speaking on “I am the Resurrection and the Life!”

The Bible passage can be found in John 11:17-27

At Easter 2020 during the Pandemic Lockdown our late Queen addressed the nation.

As darkness falls on the Saturday before Easter Day, many Christians would normally light candles together. In church, one light would pass to another, spreading slowly and then more rapidly as more candles are lit. It’s a way of showing how the good news of Christ’s resurrection has been passed on from the first Easter by every generation until now.

This year, Easter will be different for many of us…. but Easter isn’t cancelled; indeed, we need Easter as much as ever.

The discovery of the risen Christ on the first Easter Day gave his followers new hope and fresh purpose, and we can all take heart from this.

We will take heart from this as we declare again the new hope and fresh purpose she so clearly knew in her own life.

This service is usually a breakfast church – so we will have Brunch after the service since it will be a little different

Live stream for our service will be available via this link – https://linktr.ee/ParishofGHM

Due to the baptisms this service will have a service sheet that can be downloaded here – if you want to follow along at home.
