Sunday, August 9th.

 


Sunday, August 2nd.

Good morning and welcome. Today is our second weekend trying out two of our churches for Sunday services in the buildings and also keeping our online videos coming out too.  Thanks for the feedback everyone last week. Our video will appear below.

It is with caution and social distancing in place that we are meeting today at St. Matthew’s Church, Harlaston (8.45am Holy Communion) and at St. Peter’s Church, Elford (10.15am.)

Today is the 8th Sunday after Trinity and we are exploring ‘Feeding the 5000’ a familiar biblical story which gives us a wonderful message.

Boil the kettle and settle down with a nice hot cuppa, and don’t forget to grab your bible: Matthew 14:13-21, enjoy prayers, reading, drama, reflection, more prayers and get you vocal chords ready for a well-known beauty to finish!!

We do hope that you continue to enjoy our weekly online offering:

Look, see and use what is around you and believe in the power of our Saviour and King, Jesus Christ.

July the 26th, Pleasing to God and Working Together.

Good morning and welcome to the weekend. Today is our first weekend trialing out two of our churches for a Sunday service in the buildings.  It is with caution and social distancing in place that we are attempting this both at Clifton and and at Edingale this week at 10.15am. Next week we are going to try the same at Harlaston (8.45am) and Elford (10.15am) church buildings as well.  We are also going to be continuing to use video to connect with our congregations at home and further a field. A slightly shorter format is going to be used going forward but we would really value your feedback as we move ahead.

This morning our Sunday video is filmed on the theme of pleasing God and working together. It will go live on Sunday morning 26th July and be ready to watch.

 

 

 

 


July the 19th, Paul and life in the Spirit.

Our reading sheet can be downloaded here.

Our Sunday service is coming to you this week from Clifton Campville!

The Christian life is authenticated by the Spirit of God coming to live in the life of the believer. The Spirit of God alive in us and transforming us from the inside out.

The Christian hope lies in the promises of Jesus in the here and now. We are God’s children. It is a hope for today, and for the future, as we look for God’s Kingdom to come fully and finally into our world. A life eternal.

July the 12th, The Parable of the Sower

An opportunity to explore a well known ‘parable’, story which allowed Jesus to teach and share the love of God. Join us on the journey, come follow Jesus and watch to see if your seed will grow.

Sunday 12th July. Our reading sheet can be downloaded here.

 

 

 

 

 

Today we are looking at Psalm 65:9-13 and Matthew 13:1-9, 18-23.

Grab a coffee, your bible and enjoy the journey of a well-known ‘parable’

The Parable of the Sower: We welcome you to St Matthew’s Chilcote today, thank you to everyone who helped produce this short service.

Where do our seeds fall? Where do we find ourselves, during our journey with Christ? Can we accommodate those who are deaf or blind to God’s word?

Almighty and everlasting God, by whose Spirit the whole body of the Church is governed and sanctified: hear our prayer which we offer for all your faithful people, that in their vocation and ministry they may serve you in holiness and truth to the glory of your name; through our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, who is alive and reigns with you, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever.

Amen.

The video ends in silence, please use the short time to cast your seed in whichever way seems appropriate: metaphorically ‘broadcast’ God’s word to the world.


Service of Healing and Wholeness

Sunday 5th July 2020

This Sunday we have taken the opportunity to offer a healing service to try and offset some of the pain, suffering and weariness that we might be feeling.

When we offer ourselves to christ as disciples, as followers of Him, we are welcomes into His healing embrace. We can be certain of Him in these times of uncertainty. He will shoulder our burden and help us through this unprecedented situation. ‘Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest…. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light’.

Pray, Believe, Recieve. Click here for our reading sheet
 

 

 

 

 

 

Thank you for watching. God Bless and stay safe

St. Peter’s Tide, the 28th June 2020

IMG_20200624_130854~2

Our service this morning was filmed in the village of Elford, where just last year Rev’d Nicola was ordained to the priesthood and took her promises in Lichfield. She presided at her first Communion service here at Elford. This year due to the virus, many of these new ordinations and appointments in the C.of.E will have been postponed.

The church at Elford takes its name from Jesus’ disciple Peter whom, Jesus called the rock on whom he would build his church.  Peter and Paul’s lives and deaths are remembered at this time of year as they lost their lives under the Roman Empire around AD. 64-67.  All these years later we look to Jesus, just as they did, for our guidance and our strength.

Our service will be available just below to join, and our readings sheet can be downloaded here.

Pentecost Sunday, 31/05/20.

The coming of the Holy Spirit and the The Birthday of the Early Church,

Today is Pentecost, when we remember God’s Holy Spirit given to his first disciples in Jerusalem. it is thought of as being like the birth day of the early church. This Sunday we film our first Holy Communion since the Lockdown. Although we cannot all share in Holy Communion together as one, we can can share it spiritually as a church.

St. Andrew’s Chantry Chapel, Clifton Campville was the location for our service today. The Christian markings on the wall of the chapel take us right back to the herriage of worship and prayer at St Andrew’s in the 13th-14th Centuries. Our church buildings have been closed for many weeks but our faith and our services continue.  We hope you enjoy.

You can download our readings sheet for today here.

A prayer for Rogation Tide.

Dear Lord and Father, we are sorry that we so often forget that
all creation belongs to you, and that you have made us
responsible for its wellbeing. Forgive us for the damage we
have inflicted on our mother earth, and on our fellow creatures –
the birds and the animals, and so much wildlife. Help us to turn
to you, to change our ways and in humble love and service to
cherish your whole creation. Amen
