Love Feast. If you're looking for a different experience of worship then Grace is hosting a love feast each Sunday morning at 9am. This half hour service is based on the love feasts Grace has hosted in churches. It will include prayer and praise as we ask two questions, where have you seen God at work this week around you, and what encouragement do we have for one another. Bring something to eat and drink (a cuppa and a biscuit, or your breakfast, or well anything you fancy!) You may like to think about the questions in advance and bring a hymn, or a poem, or a passage of scripture to share. We will offer our food and our conversation to God for blessing. The love feast is hosted on zoom. Please contact Grace by email
firstname.lastname@example.org for the
connection details. The room opens at 8:55am for a brief chat before we start!
Face Coverings. Would you be willing to sew some face coverings for us? Disposable masks are causing a huge environmental strain, and forgotten reusable face coverings often mean using a disposable one. We’d love to have a small stock of reusable ones available however to do that we’d need willing sewers! Here’s a link to some patterns, any are fine so long as they comply with UK guidance to cover chin mouth and nose. They can be made from old sheets and we can supply elastic. If you would be willing to sew some can you please drop us a message or get in touch with Grace, who can sort out if you need elastic, or fabric supplying!
