Weekly Message from the Rector

Dear church family,

Following the announcement of the death of HRH Prince Philip we join with the whole nation, commonwealth and the world in remembering him and praying for our Royal family.  On behalf of all the people in this Diocese the Cathedral is hosting a service of Remembrance and Thanksgiving this Friday evening at 6pm and if you would like to join this service online please follow this link https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GlXAjo8ZF1I and each of our churches are open for prayer and reflection daily (Trunch only open Wed & Sun).

This Sunday we will be gathering for traditional worship in Knapton church at 10am, and you can join this service in person or via Zoom (technology permitting!).  If you would like to attend in person please contact Liz on 01263 722271 or liz@trunchgroup.org and to log onto Zoom please use the following details:

Don’t forget that we are using our NEW Holy Communion booklets from this Sunday, so if you are at home and don’t have a new booklet you can follow the service here https://www.churchofengland.org/prayer-and-worship/worship-texts-and-resources/common-worship/holy-communion-0#na or buy yourselves a copy here https://www.eden.co.uk/common-worship-holy-communion-order-one/

Also we are relying on a mobile phone signal in Knapton so it may or may not work but the recording will be on our Facebook (@Trunchgroup) page later in the day anyhow.

Our Cafe church team are continuing to plan towards a return to physical gatherings at the beginning of July, assuming all restrictions are lifted by then, so please pray for them and the whole community in these difficult times.  As usual with this message I include Sunday’s readings and a reflection from Peter alongside the hymn words and prayer pointers for the week.

Thanks,

Andrew
