An update for the Fourth Sunday of Lent: Mothering Sunday

Covid 19

Following the Government’s decision to lift coronavirus restrictions amid decreasing infection rates, we no longer require those entering the building to attend services to wear a face covering in our services.

However, we still strongly encourage our congregation to wear face coverings whilst in the building (unless exempt) to drive down transmission of coronavirus and to keep each other as safe as possible.

As the daily statistics have disappeared from our news, please let us continue to stay safe and take care of our vulnerable neighbours as they navigate this season.

The following activities are taking place each week. All are welcome to join us:

Sundays

  • 8am – BCM Communion Service
  • 10am – Contemporary Service (Communion service on the first and third Sunday of the month, informal morning praise on the second and fourth Sunday of the month)

Concert for Ukraine

Christians Together, Lymington and Pennington are promoting a Peace for Ukraine Concert and the response has been really encouraging: so much so that every indication is that the United Reformed Church would not be big enough to host it! St Thomas Church have thus agreed to host the event and would love to welcome you on March 26th from 7pm.

With a variety of local singers and musicians, come and make a donation to support those in Ukraine in fear of war.

Coffee meetings

Join our online coffee available on Wednesday morning from 10:15am – we are a small group taking an opportunity for us to be together in fellowship and conversation outside of the service times. All are welcome to join the meeting on Zoom and the link is below.

We are so aware of our need to connect with each other as the world opens up again and we would love to hear from you with your thoughts and suggestions for establishing this connection again. Please let us know if you have any thoughts to assist us in this.

Lent Course – Study

We do hope that many of you have engaged with the materials available for Lent reflections at this time. Our Monday study group have continued with our journey on reflecting on the Psalms with many in depth conversations around the theme.

We pray that, at this time of reflection, we all will find time to reflect on the Word of God and find fellowship in our discussions and worship.

Mothering Sunday service

On Sunday 27th March, do join us for our Mothering Sunday service – all mums welcome, with gifts of flowers for mothers joining us!

Churchyard Working Party

A date for your diaries – the first Churchyard Tidy for 2022 will be on 26th March 2022 between 10am and 12 noon. Do please come along with tools and enthusiasm and we will be happy to provide refreshments

Get involved; would you like to contribute with readings or intercessions?

Key parts of a church services are in sharing the wisdom within our Bibles and through prayer, giving thanks and sharing our fears and concerns with our loving God.

If you would like to contribute to the work we do in the form of the readings or leading in prayer, do please get in touch – we’d love to include you in our services. You don’t have to be able to be in the building for reading either; we can include you pre-recorded too!

Get in touch – we’d love to hear from you.
