Hello Everyone

We have pleasure in attaching the link for the recorded service this week which was filmed at Harlington Church and includes beautiful hymns and music courtesy of the choir of St Martins in the Field and Nicholas who leads our hymns and music with such enthusiasm and gifting. The service includes Bible readings by Iain from Toddington Church and Larry from Chalgrave Church, and a sincere meaningful sermon by Bishop Alan, Bishop of St Albans, based on personal experience. The service has been edited by Dr Robert Johns of Harlington Church for the last time, and we extend our most grateful thanks to him for his tremendous commitment and dedication in editing and preparing the service each week over these past months of lockdown. He is stepping back this week to focus more fully on his Readership role and passes the baton on to Iain who has kindly offered to edit our future recorded services. We extend our most sincere thanks to both Robert and Iain. The link for this week's service is: http://www.harlingtonchurch.org/worship-services-2/this-sundays-service-2/

This week there are one or two modifications to our usual routine of events to accommodate other special services. Please note that there will be no private prayer at Toddington this week on Thursday morning to allow the 72 hours Covid safety clearance before holding a Wedding in Church on 15th August.

There will also be an act of Remembrance at 11am on 15th August at Toddington war memorial to mark the remembrance of VJ day. (This event will be socially distanced - with limited numbers able to gather).
