weekly news sheet 07/02/2021


Dear Friends

I hope you managed to catch some of the very welcome sunshine the last couple of days. It’s so lovely to see the snowdrops flowering and the birdsong is definitely increasing.

This week we have an online service for you which you can find here:
www.capelandockleychurch.org.uk/2021/02/06/second-sunday-before-lent-sunday-7-february-2021/

Please do join us for the Lent course that Rev Liz will be running from 22 February 7-9pm for 6 weeks entitled ‘Creation Matters’. This course will be on Zoom. We will be recording the sessions so don’t worry if you can’t attend all of them you can always watch it later. Please email on liz@hostmyserver.co.uk if you would like to be added to the list.

Whilst we are on the subject of courses, I just want to remind everyone that we have 2 bible groups running on Zoom at the moment. There is the weekly bible group which meets on Mondays from 3 – 4.30pm which is currently half way through a study of Isaiah, and a monthly bible group which meets generally on the 4th Monday of the month 7.30pm -9pm. The monthly bible group will be starting a new topic after Easter – ‘Understanding the Old Testament’. Both groups are very friendly and always look forward to having new members. If you would be interested in joining either please do email me and I’ll pass your email on.

Suzanne Cole who is the editor of InSpire has asked for our thoughts on what 3 things we are most looking forward to when restrictions end. Please email her on editor@capelandockleychurch.org.uk  to let her know. To start the ball rolling here are my three:

1. Give my grandchildren a huge hug.
2. Go out for supper with friends without a mask.
3. Go to the theatre sit in the front row and not worry about social distancing

Do let me know what yours are.

Suzanne also wondered whether you would be happy to let her know when you have had your vaccine so we can create an ever growing list of names that represent the hope we all have of eventually returning to normal.

I attach the weekly readings, the Bishop’s sermon, our weekly news sheets and the photo of the week which is an atmospheric shot of sunshine and mist competing taken on a very muddy walk at Newlands Corner.

With love and prayers
