TODAY- PALM SUNDAY
Thank you to Rev’d Martin Smith for leading our worship through
our Service at Home today
Although separated physically, we can still be united through our worship by sitting down together at 10am and joining in. This week we are trying a Zoom gathering which you will be guided about in a separate email! Alternatively you can just download the order of service and follow it in your own way. However we share, it will still be an unbroken tide of worship, bible reading and prayer.
ST MICHAEL’S INTO THE FUTURE – NEXT STEPS
Messy Church: Pauline is planning some special activities for our Messy Church family and she will be in touch with you directly very soon!
Erection of cross at White Hart Corner for Holy Week and Easter: During this time of unprecedented peril and worry, we felt that it was important to bring this powerful symbol of hope and strength into a prominent position in the centre of the village. With the permission of Pirbright Parish Council, the skills of Hugh Dennis in its construction and the creative imagination of Liz Earl, one of our talented flower arrangers, this will be erected on Holy Monday, first as a stark reminder of the cross which begins to loom after the hosannas of Jesus’ arrival in Jerusalem and then to reflect the events of Holy Week. Attached to this are the bible readings for each day of Holy Week together with a prayer and reflective responses for your use at home.
PeriAid and Covid-19: St Michael’s is once again joining with Pirbright Parish Council but this time in a joint mission of mercy. We know that our community will again show its strength and caring for each and every member of our village. If you would like to join the list of volunteers please contact Catherine (07947 032210). Your help will be very much appreciated!
The Foodbank collection point has been relocated from the church to Catherine’s house, just inside the gate at Linnards on the Little Green. Our help is going to be even more needed! Particular needs at the moment are washing up liquid, toothpaste, cereal, ketchup, mayonnaise, long life milk, tinned rice pudding and custard, sponge puds, noodles, pasta and loo rolls.
If you want to chat or pray, or if you need anything: Catherine (481234/ 07947 032210) and Pauline (07745 121958) are always on the other end of a phone for a chat or a request and Rev’d Gary Williamson is available (236909) if you would like to talk or for him to pray with/for you.
