Vicar's Newsletter for the 10th Sunday of Trinity

Dear Friends,

The recording worked better today, so I am glad to be sending out the video reflection as well as the texts with this email. I am glad that the period when we were not able to worship in church led to this weekly mailing – as it enables me to communicate with members of all our congregations every week and if you want to follow the continuity of the readings and accompanying sermons you are able to. I will now continue this weekly mail out even as we move forward more people are coming to the in-person services at the parish church through the month. It would be helpful to know how useful people find the video as well as the texts. Are they aiding your sense of worship and reflection, especially if you are not yet ready to come in to church? If the videos are helping people pray I am very happy to continue them, but if yet another screen experience feels jaded then we could put them on pause: let me know what you think.

God bless, Samantha

Thank you to everyone who is enabling us to open all our churches daily again for private prayer
