Church is Changing, what’s happening?

A fortnight ago I informed you of the new Church of England prayer line (0800 804 8044) , the

details of Sunday Bible readings for May/June, our new Wednesday Zoom meetings and a video

update. It has been great to see some of you on Zoom and lovely to hear of others also reading the

Bible readings. Below are details of another local video, and also of our contribution to the

growing international prayer movement, Thy Kingdom Come (TKC).


My latest worship video is available on YouTube. Please enter the Youtube site and

search for “worship with rev mick on ascension day” or click here


The talk for this is given after the letter and the songs are also attached below.


This year Thy Kingdom Come (TKC) runs from Thursday 21st May (Ascension Day ) to Sunday

31st May (Pentecost). A box full of resources to help us to pray will be outside All Saints Church

Sapcote, outside 4 Sharnford Road, Grace Rd, Stanton Road, Lime Ave (all Sapcote), 

outside St.Helens Church, Sharnford and outside Hirfron, Brookfield, Sharnford from Wednesday 20th May. 

In each box there will be TKC prayer journals and TKC family prayer adventure maps available. 

Try Praying resources will be added later. Please come and collect your prayer resources! If you would prefer to have one of these

resources delivered through your door please contact Jim Matthews on 07905-932988 or myself

(01455-272215) with your request. Thank you Jim for your help with this.

Jim has also signed us up to be part of the TKC national 24/7 prayer initiative. This involves

someone from one of our churches praying from 5-6pm each day during 21-31 May as part of a

national rota. If you would like to pray for one of these hourly slots please contact Jim. He also has ideas for prayer for the hour. 

Further prayer resources and ideas are available on the Thy Kingdom Come website.

Our church buildings continue to be closed. Although permission has now been given for clergy

in Leicester Diocese to live stream worship on their own (or to pray on their own) in our

buildings, I am continuing to work, pray and worship at home. As you know I work part time and

am usually available on Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Sunday. At the moment it is very easy

to get hold of me on the phone 01455-272215, especially during the day, or by email

[email protected] continue to ask for help whenever you need it, and encourage

others to do the same.

I continue to pray for our churches and our local communities every day, and I invite you to join

me in praying at home whenever you can and especially during Thy Kingdom Come.

With love and prayers

Rev Mick
