Reading the scriptures:
If you would like to use some notes to help you make a daily short reading of the Bible and reflect on it then you might try Bible Alive (a Roman Catholic publication but follows our daily and Sunday cycle of readings) at https://www.alivepublishing.co.uk/publications/bible-alive/ or
Bible Reading Fellowship
'Daily Hope' is a free phone line of hymns, reflections, and prayers. Now that we have begun public worship again and have the streamed service online, the weekly reflection has come to a natural end. But those unable to join us in either way can access this free telephone line to hear hymns, daily prayers, and reflections: 0800 804 804
Our prayers this week for:
Bishop Nick …a greater sense of our planet as a common home for all creation…growth in our Churches…Kingsbridge Area Foodbank …those who find lockdown difficult…young people, school children and teachers…the depressed, lonely and anxious... our home communicants......all who have asked our prayers including the sick and among them Gill and Trevor Moore, Jean Flawn, Bobby Parsons, Dick Lloyd, Gill Mickel, Evelyn Hedger, Keith and Jackie Rollinson, Katherine Yandell, Jamie Cooke and Marjorie Godden.. those who have died recently, and among them Carlene Whittington and Judy Foss…those whose anniversaries we keep at this time and among them Thomas Dorling, Muriel Bishop, Colin Arundell, Samuel Hannaford, Marina Trout, Arthur Spedding, Emma Cooke and Dorothy Hutchings.
Visiting & Home Communions
I am very sorry that I will have to suspend home visits and home communions for the time being. I will of course visit in extreme circumstances, provided it is safe to do so. Those at home are always included in our Parish prayers, at the Eucharist, and in my own prayers.
If you would like to contact me about any personal or pastoral matter please do so, I should be very happy to help you. Please leave a message on my phone 01548 580908 or send me an email.
Your Church is still here for you, please know we are praying for you, for those in need, and for all those you love. Please do get in touch if there is anyone or anything I can pray for or if I can help you in any way.
With my prayers and very best wishes
Priest in Charge: Fr Michael Berrett, The Vicarage, Stokenham, Kingsbridge, Devon TQ7 2ST 01548 580908 firstname.lastname@example.org
