This week we are going to be looking at the Lord’s Prayer, and also praying for God’s blessing upon our homes, our communities and upon the whole of Creation.
We are engaging in this as part of the Archbishop’s initiative called, “Thy Kingdom Come.” ALL YOU WILL NEED for our Sunday “Live Stream” service, apart from yourselves, is a willingness to look again at the Lord’s Prayer and Prayer in general.
Afterwards, why not join us for a ‘virtual’ Coffee and a catch up? We shared the first of these on Ascension Day, and it was lovely to see people, int heir own homes and across the communities.

us for a SPECIAL “Live Stream” Service – Ascension Day (Thurs 21st
May at 10.30am) – Live from Cadbury Hill, Congresbury:
Ascension of Jesus into heaven, is one of those festivals of the Church that
waned somewhat in more recent years.
That is until we started going up Cadbury Hill, first thing on Ascension
Day morning – looking down over Congresbury and out to Banwell and praying for
our communities, the Churches and breaking Bread together. It probably had nothing to do with the Full
Cooked English Breakfast and glass of bubbly that followed at “Heathers Coffee
So, this year, undeterred, we are going to share an Agape
meal again together, as we did the First Sunday after Easter. To celebrate an Agape on Ascension Day, you
Some Bread – this can be an ordinary
bread around the house, or you may want to make some, pitta bread, roll, loaf,
gluten free – great activity to do with others.
Some grapes or fruit of some kind –
whatever you have to hand.
A glass of your favourite drink or a cup of
may even want to organise some elevenses for afterwards.
You may have picked up from the Prime Minister’s announcement on Monday (11th May) that Places of Worship are being included in a phase of opening, scheduled for Sat 4th July. Obviously, this is very tentative at present, and there will, no doubt, be lots of conditions and restrictions, but for many of you who love our two churches, something to aim for and look forward to.
This week ALL YOU NEED for our Sunday “Live Stream” service,
apart from yourselves, is a Bible.
If you don’t have one at home, or
access to one on your phone, don’t worry.
Simply look up the following passage at https://www.biblegateway.com/ – that way you can print off a copy for each
person from your household who is joining you.
This week we are going to be looking at Luke 24:36-53
as a simple Bible Study together. Its Luke’s account of the time between the
first Easter evening and Ascension, and one that is often overlooked, which is
a shame as it has much to offer us.
So look forward to seeing you, Bible in hand, this Sunday.
