LITCHAM METHODIST CHAPEL WILL BE OPEN IN OCTOBER FOR SUNDAY MORNING WORSHIP AT 10:30am
TITTLESHALL CHAPEL IS NOT RE-OPENING AT THE MOMENT
METHODIST NOTES ~ SEPTEMBER
‘Terms and conditions apply.’
We are writing these notes at the beginning of September. Hopefully, by the time your magazine reaches you in October, Litcham Chapel will be open again for Sunday morning worship at 10:30am. However, do ‘keep an eye’ on the notice board as things could change at short notice as Stephen reminded us in the last magazine. We know the short service will be very different to what we have been used to but we are looking forward to worshipping together again. Government and Methodist guidelines will be strictly adhered to in order to keep everyone safe. Some of us have enjoyed listening to Stephen singing, along with his keyboard and guitar, on a Thursday morning – weather permitting. Thank you Stephen for sharing your love of music with us from the driveway of your home. It’s been much appreciated. Prayer plays such an important part in our daily lives and we all pray differently. One prayer most people know by heart is the Lord’s Prayer and we are so familiar with the words it often flows from us and barely touch our minds. In a Magnet magazine a couple of years ago another translation was published which was put together by Primary School children. We will share it with you now. Does it bring a fresh understanding? Our Father in heaven, you are awesome! Show us who you are and how you want us to be. Make earth more like heaven. Please give us what we need to keep us going each day. Help us to let other people off and move on. Keep us safe from bad stuff. You’re in charge! You’re strong and powerful and always there. Forever. Our Father in heaven is always there. As we read in Deuteronomy ‘He never leaves us nor forsakes us.’ May we hold fast to that sentence of scripture in the coming months as everything in the world is different. Every blessing.

MACMILLAN COFFEE MORNINGS
As you know, our Methodist churches in Tittleshall and Litcham have always held coffee mornings for Macmillan Cancer Care as part of their Biggest Coffee morning in the World.
This year, of course, things are very different. We had decided to replace the coffee morning with a concert on my front lawn, but the rules about gathering together now make this impossible.
None the less, Macmillan still need your support, perhaps more than ever with all the loss of income they have suffered this year, so I would urge you to consider supporting them by making a direct donation via their website, or by putting your donation through my letter box, and I will forward it on as I would do if we had been holding the coffee mornings. My address is 34 Manor Drive Litcham, (just before you get to the Health Centre).
