Service sheets for this week https://www.methodist.org.uk/media/23165/10-october-21-worship-if-you-are-unable-to-attend-church.pdf

Dear friends,

Here is the weekly letter, worship resources and other material for this Sunday.

There are services at North Hillingdon at 9.30am, and Hayes and Hayes End at 11.00am.
We will be sharing bread and wine together at North Hillingdon and Hayes End.

And at 4.00pm we celebrate in a service together with Philip Woods as he is welcomed and admitted as a local preacher in the circuit. This takes place at the Lighthouse Centre in South Ruislip (HA4 0NL).

Included in the weekly letter is information about a series of evening meetings across the circuit next week. It is a chance to explore and discuss how our Methodist churches and the circuit together can best and more effectively share God's love and serve the people across the boroughs of Hillingdon and Harrow. The nearest meeting for us is on Thursday 14 October at North Hillingdon (starting at 7.3-pm), but you can go to any of them. If you only attend one church meeting this year,  then please make it this one.

And if you would prefer not to go out in the evening, then you can either join Wednesday's meeting on zoom. https://zoom.us/j/94982197752?pwd=TllGSmhwKzJQNVNmZXZyZXJ0VWx6dz09

 

 

 

Or there is a daytime on Monday 18 October at The Lighthouse Centre in South Ruislip (HA4 0NL) which starts at 10.30am. 

I am attaching a booklet which gives more information. 


Take care and stay safe

Ways to pray Thy Kingdom Come

Prayer and care


As we pray for those we know and love to become followers of Jesus, how could we demonstrate this also in deed (in keeping with social distancing guidelines)? This could mean:

  • staying in contact, by phone, post or email, saying you are praying for them at this time.

  • keeping an eye out for anniversaries of life events (eg birthdays, deaths of loved ones)

  • making sure the people you pray for know how much you value and care for them.


Pray together at regular times
Commit to prayer with others. You could do this over the phone, or internet to hold the people you are praying for in prayer.


Prayer at a particular time of day
Again you could agree a time with some others, or join the group from Hayes End who has committed to pray for a few minutes at 12 noon. I set an alarm to help me remember.


Light up the world in prayer
Jesus Christ is the light of the world and we are called to be the light of the world as we bear His image. In the days of Thy Kingdom Come, light a candle each evening as a sign of prayer and a symbol of hope.


Use the Jesus loves all prayer journal
This has reflections, Bible verses and actions, with space for your own thoughts and prayers.

For families, there is the Thy Kingdom Come Prayer Adventure Map. This has games, videos and activities for children and young people. You can download this from:
www.thykingdomcome.global/resources/digital-family-prayer-adventure-map.

There’s a saying that a church that prays together stays together. We may not be together in one place, but we can still pray together.

 

Phone (020 8756 0567) or email (ken.kingston@methodist.org.uk) me your prayers and we can share them and continue to pray together.
