Quick fire round for the middle of the week…
Wednesday Mass Address- attached.
Tithings Groups. Have you had yours?
Positive music playlist- have you tried it, yet?
And the stream of ideas about what we do to lift our spirits during the day (other than gin) has dried up a little of late- more suggestions, please!
And don’t forget to drop your food and drink gifts for the staff at the RBH into St Paul’s between 11 and 4, along with a note for a member of staff which offers encouragement and prayerful support. Thanks.
Whatever we do as Churches, it must build on the statements we developed as part of the PMC Process in 2019-
why not read these through, pray about them and then see you think God is urging us to do and become:
Sharing God’s love with the community (Woosehill)
Exploring through relationships and worship how God’s love is creating and sustaining communities in Emmbrook (N)
Shaped by God in the Eucharist, we are called to make the richness of his love known to everyone in the community (P).

Prayers on Thursday evening: During the previous lockdown we felt it important to increase our praying together on Zoom to weekly and now we are unfortunately back in the same situation. Therefore, we shall meet at 8pm every Thursday evening to offer our prayers for all our concerns, both personal, local, nationwide and worldwide. We shall keep the meetings short, certainly no longer than an hour. I know we all pray individually but there is a comfort and powerful knowledge of God’s presence with us as we pray together. So please join us if you can- Zoom details are not published in order to keep prayer meetings confidential, but please contact either Lynn Smith or myself for the ID and password details.
Lyn Brown ( firstname.lastname@example.org or 07880 946366 ) Lynn Smith ( email@example.com or 07757701730) Keep well and smiling!
Saturdays at 4 were very popular in the last lockdown, and the Quiz last Saturday which launched the new series of gatherings was very popular- thanks, Jane. This week: “Getting to know you..” Turn up with your best straight-faces and your most persuasive and compelling lie…

Finally, here are some of the thank you notes received recently for our donations to the three charities supported by St Paul’s and St Nick’s- thank you for your generosity. (We gave more money to the Children’s Society than this but this is only one of the letters).
