St John's News - 2 Aug 2023

Dear friends,

There is no one holy like the Lord;
there is no one besides you; there is no Rock like our God..
1 Samuel 2:2

If you missed Sunday's service with the renewal of wedding vows of Mark and Jayne Knights and the talk on our fifth Woman of Faith, Hannah, you can watch it on our YouTube channel

Next Sunday's main service at 10:30am is all age with the baptism of Phoebe Cross and a look at Esther, our next Woman of Faith. There is also a shorter service of the Lord’s Supper at 9:00am.

Many thanks to Mike Schofield for organising the purchase and installation of our new memorial bench in the churchyard. The bench has been kindly funded by a grant from Suffolk Historic Churches Trust and has the inscription: "In memory of HRH Queen Elizabeth II."

Speaking of Suffolk Historic Churches Trust, a reminder that forms for Ride & Stride (taking place on 10th September) are at the back of church. We are looking for volunteers to welcome visitors at the church (shifts of an hour) during the day. If you are able to help, please sign up on the rota at the back of church.

On 22nd October 2023 at 3:00pm, there is a Confirmation Service for our deanery at Lavenham. If you would like to know more about getting confirmed, then please have a word with the Rector.

The weekly church prayer meeting is on Zoom on Saturday at 9:00am for 40 minutes. You are welcome to join us by clicking here or, load Zoom and use Meeting ID: 685 295 1296 and Password: 816262.

In Christ
