St John's News - 18 April

Dear friends,

On the evening of that first day of the week, when the disciples were together,
with the doors locked for fear of the Jewish leaders,
Jesus came and stood among them and said, 'Peace be with you!'
After he said this, he showed them his hands and side.
The disciples were overjoyed when they saw the Lord.
John 20:19-20

Easter season is a time of great joy as we celebrate the new life Jesus brings in his resurrection. If you missed Gavin's encouraging talk on Sunday, or the recent Easter Sunday service, or the Maundy Thursday talk on how Isaiah 53 is fulfilled in Jesus, do catch up by visiting our YouTube channel.

This coming Sunday is St George's Day and I am so pleased the Cubs will be coming to church. The 10:30am service will be an all age Parade Service, with a short act of Holy Communion at around 11:50am (for those who wish to stay) following a break for tea and coffee.

Our annual meetings take place during the service on Sunday 30 April at 10:30am. The annual report and accounts for last year can be read here.
