Unsurprisingly in these strange times, there have been further developments as we figure out how to ‘do things differently’.
Revd Erwin has drawn up a plan that might serve for at least a while yet, and prepared this poster, that sets out the details:
Another initiative has taken shape jointly with Colne Radio 106.6FM. Erwin has recorded the first Thought for Sunday, a short message that is intended to be broadcast around 10am, 2pm and 8pm (before or after the top of the hour).
Churches Together Wivenhoe have been approached as will be other non-Christian faith community leaders, to see if this is something that can be developed into a regular offering on a rotational basis.
Colne Radio can be found on line via the link above, or on your radio receiver on 106.6FM.
As Erwin said in the poster, we continue to pray for our community in these fraught days and St Mary’s Facebook page has acquired a new feature that we hope will reassure anyone in the community that these are not empty words.
A prayer group has formed that will daily react to any prayer requests that may be made and if any of our congregation would like to be part of this group, contact firstname.lastname@example.org to be informed of any requests that might have been made by message and so not visible as a reply post.
