Weekly news sheet 1 August 2021

Dear friends,

I write this overlooking a lovely courtyard in the most amazing house where we are holidaying with all the family near Frome. So far today we have walked the dog, and the children have swum in the pool, this afternoon we are off to see a castle nearby, which our grandson Tom is particularly keen to do as knights are his favourite characters. I do hope you are also having an enjoyable Saturday.

My thanks again this week to Alan Smallwood for doing the weekly sheets and Sue Partridge and Alan for doing the deliveries in Capel. There is a lot coming up so please do look at the extra fliers with this week’s sheets. The Archbishop’s visit to Guildford Diocese happens in September. There are two events that we are invited to:

Friday 24 September 8pm at the Lakeside Centre Camberley
Anyone can attend this evening where the Archbishop will speak about the future of the local church.

Saturday 25 September 11.30 Dorking Halls
The Archbishop will answer any questions you may have (please submit them to Rev Liz beforehand). This event is specifically for regular churchgoers to bring non church going friends along to, so that they may ask all those questions about faith – no question is off limits!

Both events are described in more detail in the attached flier, with a link so that you can book tickets.

Rotawalk ’21 organised by Dorking Rotary Club.
Sponsored walk 12 September around Holmwood Common
This is an organised sponsored walk around Holmwood Common (5k) an opportunity to raise funds for our churches. Again the attached flier has all the details.

Suzanne Cole has been busy this week and so you will be pleased to hear that the new issue of InSpire is available in both our churches. As always it’s a wonderful read, thank you to Suzanne for creating this valuable resource each month. The front cover of this month’s issue is our photo of the week.

Services this Sunday are:
9.30am Matins Ockley
10.30am Morning Worship Capel
Both services will be taken by Graham Everness, who has kindly supplied his sermon for those who cannot attend, which is attached.

Following on from the lifting of restrictions on 19 July we have met as a PCC, so have updated our requests around social distancing etc. Please continue to wear masks if you are able to and take note of the new guidelines which are on this week’s weekly sheets.

With love and prayers
