Return to Church

Moira and the JCC have been discussing the implications, new systems and new technology which needs to be put in place to facilitate the reopening of the church building for services. Due consideration will be given to risk assessments and we will take the time necessary to do this properly.

We are hoping to resume Sunday worship from the beginning of September- to be confirmed nearer the time.

News from B30 foodbank

The Foodbank is operating an Emergency Food Delivery Service from the Warehouse only for the period of the CV19 emergency.
How to get emergency food deliveredClients needing emergency food are referred to B30FB by E-Voucher through a referral agent.
Or the client can ring 0121 728 7030 to self-refer. Option 2 on this number is the B30/Taws Referral Agent, who will email B30FB with details. This service is being run by B30FB in partnership with TAWS (The Active Wellbeing Society)

Raising Funds

Currently the amount raised from sales of services and items from the “Hazelwell Brochure”, plus donations in lieu, amounts to £1030 including proceeds from Joan Hart’s efforts. This is a great total but It is important that we remain solvent and unsurprisingly there are significant additional expenses to make a return to worship safe and compliant with guidelines (We are currently hoping to return to worship on September 6th.)

Some people have already set up standing orders to cover their regular giving and some are sending cheques to Peter. Both are greatly appreciated. If you have not made provision for regular giving and would like to do so, please contact Peter on 01214441663 to let him know.

Reflection (Revd. Kate Ross)

‘They shall be called, “The Holy People, The Redeemed of the Lord”.’ (Isaiah 62.12)

I hate getting lost. I get very anxious about not being able to locate myself in space. I wander around until, with great relief, I find something familiar. Up to then I am dealing with rising fear. I feel as if I have lost control of my life and am under threat – being lost challenges me physically and spiritually that much.

I should not worry, however. The physical and spiritual moments I face are taken on board by the Lord who guides the Lord’s people and promises them new life. The people of God often lose their way, but Isaiah reassures them that they have a new name now – ‘The Holy People, The Redeemed of the Lord’. They are holy in God’s eyes; they are saved by the Lord.

Jerusalem also has a new name – ‘Sought Out, A City Not Forsaken’ (Isaiah 62.12). Just as I cannot stand not knowing where I am, God cannot stand being away from his people, the people of Jerusalem. Jerusalem will be saved and have a bright future. We know that in Jesus we all become part of God’s Jerusalem.

Here, Isaiah is a prophet of hope. We will be renamed. By God we will be called into abundance. My life will be new again and I will not fear. I will be found even though I am lost.
