METHODIST NOTES ~ DECEMBER

Welcome to 2020.  We wish all readers of the Church and Village magazine a very happy and peaceful New Year.  January is the month known for its new beginnings and often cold weather!  However, towards the end of January we can noticeably see the days lengthen, even if the cold does strengthen and as Anne Bradstreet said “if we had no winter the spring would not be so pleasant.”

After the busyness of the Christmas season, January is a relatively quiet month in our Church calendar but at the beginning of every year in the Methodist Church, Covenant Services are held.  This renewal service gives us the opportunity to celebrate all that God has done for us and affirm that we give our lives to God.  This year, Tittleshall and Litcham congregations are uniting for this service which will be held on Sunday 5th January at Tittleshall at 9:30am.  Rev’d Jacqui Horton will lead us through this time of worship and a warm welcome is extended to you all.

Do give your prayerful support to the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity which is observed annually from the 18th to the 25th January.  The theme for 2020 is “They showed us unusual kindness” which finds its origins in the Acts of the Apostles.  As we begin another New Year we are all being called to show unusual kindness towards one another.

We finish with a prayer which was written to celebrate the arrival of the Millennium by the Church leaders of Norfolk and Waveney Churches Together.

Gracious god,
May we treasure the past with thanksgiving.
May we embrace the future with hope.
May we journey ahead with confidence.
In your love and in your power, now and always.
Through Jesus Christ our lord.
Amen.

Every blessing Veronica and Albert Little

The Litcham event will be ticket only due to the constriction of space.  Tickets will be free, but you will be asked to give a donation of whatever you feel is appropriate.
Tickets will be available from Ailsa Warburton (01328 700981) or Stephen Lynn (01328 700978).
We will also welcome any offers to donate food for either of the events to help this wonderful cause.
