Dear parishioners and friends of Knockbreda,
Psalm 103 says, ‘Bless the Lord O my soul, and forget not all his benefits, who forgives all your iniquity, who heals all your diseases, who redeems your life from the pit, who crowns you with steadfast love and mercy.’
Church after lockdown
Moral and Social Issues
Next Friday we will be having our little initiative ‘Faithful Delivery’ to keep our spirits up in this time of lockdown. We would like it to be something of a surprise so I won’t give you the details but every household belonging to Knockbreda will receive a little treat. We still need some volunteers to make this ‘Faithful Delivery’ so if you can help in making a delivery in your car please contact Linda Butterwick (07801389971) or myself as soon as you can. Thank you to Linda and her team for making the necessary arrangements.
We will continue to gather online for church on Sundays – on YouTube from 10.30am and then 6.30pm. For this week’s Morning Service you could read Revelation chapter 5, and for the evening service John 10. Go to the Knockbreda YouTube channel and look in Playlists, Sunday Services.
On Sunday week (the 28th) at 10.30am will have our Children’s Day service. We plan to have boys and girls from the Sunday School taking part – and others – and we are grateful to our Sunday School teachers for arranging prizes and presents of books.
Pray for our leaders
Our gracious Father, thank you for all those working in health care, and especially those in our congregation who are serving the community within the NHS and public health bodies. Grant them, and all who work in essential services, protection and strength for each day’s challenges, and to work with skill and patience. We also pray for the Prime Minister, the Health Secretary, our local politicians and the chief medical and scientific officers that they and those who work with them will have wisdom and insight sufficient for the decisions they need to make at this difficult time. We ask in Jesus’s name, Amen
Take care. God bless,
