Weekly Pew Sheet

WELCOME! 18th March 2018 5th Sunday after Lent

As today’s gospel has it, the grain of wheat must die if it is to bear a rich harvest.  The radical message for us this week is that like Jesus we will have to sacrifice selfishness, security, success, popularity, power and wealth, if God’s work is to be done through us.  Let us take on board the cry of the Greek festival goers: ‘Sir, we would like to see Jesus.’

Services today
8am Said Eucharist
8.30am First Sunday Eucharist at Gracewell
9.45am Sunday School (Crypt)
10am Sung Eucharist

Hymns: 237, 66, 63, Love is his word (sheets)

During Communion the Choir will sing the anthem:
My Song is Love Unknown – M Archer
Our Organist today is Derek Griffin

Refreshments will be served after this Service

We pray for the sick: Dee Allenby, Rodger Carter, Marion Cooper, James Fitzpatrick, Alan Ford, Beryl Hamlet, Antonio Hartley, Val Hemmens, Dan Hoskins, Jessica Jacobs, John Kemble, Michael Kooge, Debbie Lane, Maddison Lane, Nellie Levey, Peter Nash, Christopher Newbery, Sarah Ray, Glen Sands, Deb Smith (Priest), Mary & Peter Storrs, Margaret Tambling, Geoffrey Walton (Priest), Keith Wilson, Caron Yardley, Isabelle, Julia, Lewis, Tallulah and Tiana
We remember those with anniversaries at this time: Stephen Houlden, Vera Smith, Caroline Brooker, Leslie Palmer, Moira Hargreaves, Thomas Barrett, Doris Ransome and Peter Airey Rest eternal grant unto them, O Lord,
and let light perpetual shine upon them;
May they rest in peace, and rise in glory.

    Community Easter Event 24 March 2018

    Due to schools not breaking up until Maundy Thursday this event replaces the Holy Week club which was previously run in this parish for children. Both Janet Hall and Jenny Keates felt that it gave them the opportunity to try something different - hence the idea of a Community Easter Event. It will be free and run from 2pm to 4pm with lots of activities and of course refreshments.

    Help would be welcome with the following:

    Serving tea, coffee and cake and washing up etc. Provision of Easter cupcakes

    Would you please let Janet (01305 839737) or Jenny (01305 788136) know if you can assist with the teas and coffees (they will provide) and a list will go up in the organ transept for the provision of cupcakes. If you would like a flyer to help promote the event then please ask for a copy.

    Thank You.

Change is Always a Challenge

Most of our readers will know by now that, by the time you read this, St Nicholas church will have permanently closed and the site will up for sale. Change is always a challenge for us all. But it can be exciting too. The Church in every generation and in every era of its life has always had challenges to face because of the changing circumstances in which she finds herself. Our present age is no different.

Vicar’s letter for March 2018

“In a vivid adage, coined I think by the Swiss theologian Karl Barth, the life of the Christian community is perfectly defined - The Church gathers for worship and scatters for mission.The picture described by Barth is worth remembering.”
