Sunday 29th November 

Dear St Luke’s,

 

This is the beginning of Advent! We are facing an uncertain Christmas, but we will try to keep you all informed of developments as we go.

 

With lockdown restrictions shifting to Tier two this means that we will be back with ‘in church, in person’ services, under the same risk assessment as before. 

This is the Diocesan line at present:

Government guidance 

Following recent government announcements we have amended our FAQs regarding reopening churches from 2nd December. You can find them on our Coronavirus page here. Please note that we are still awaiting more detailed guidance from both the Government and the Church of England so some answers may change. It is clear that places of worship in all tiers may open for worship services from 2nd December. We expect building capacity to be based on 2m social distancing between households and the use of face masks. We anticipate further guidance will be forthcoming regarding both public worship in December and during the Christmas period (which may be different)

 

Please note Brenda’s Advent Course:

‘Growing in Confidence in Prayer’ for the next three Wednesday evenings. Further Advent information will come in a separate email. 

 

Sunday Service Video

Due to me having technical problems recording some of the segments, this will be available THIS MORNING- by separate email. Apologies for this. Subscribe to our Channel, and you can receive notifications as soon as it is published. https://www.youtube.com/user/StLukesGrayshott

Keeping in touch

We are aware that it is hard to stay in touch with each other, please try to call friends and neighbours, especially as the weather gets colder and the nights are long. With the Data Protection regulations as they are, sharing personal details can’t be done without permission, but it would be great if we could establish small groups who will watch out for each other. More of this another time. 

 

We send our love to you all. 

Jeremy and Claire. 


Sunday 22nd November 

Dear St Luke’s

Some of you know Don and Mary Gribble, Don who made a huge contribution to the life of St Luke’s over the last decades, sadly died last week.  Don helped to manage the building of the church rooms, and as a bell ringer made a massive contribution to the development of the bell tower.  The family is having a very small private funeral.

 

This is the last Sunday of the Church Calendar, and the feast of Christ the King.

Next Sunday is the first Sunday of Advent. In our video I am delighted that Floss Mitchell is preaching. We have been looking at how to do Advent, and with the uncertainty of so many aspects of our Christmas provision, we are working to make the most of Advent, by suggesting two books to help with personal devotions, and also for those Home-groups that are meeting by Zoom, Brenda has written a Bible Study based on the readings of the traditional 9 lessons and carols carol service from King’s Cambridge, which can also be done individually. 

 

I am sorry that this is such a long email. Please pick out what you think might be helpful to you.

6.00pm Evening Prayer on Zoom

Sunday 22nd November is the 'Sunday next before Advent' and is also the festival of Christ the King

the lectionary provision is: 

  • Psalms 93 and 97
  • 2 Samuel 23. 1-7
  • Matthew 28: 16-end

the readings are quite short so I think we will have room for two Hymns:

  • Praise my Soul the king of Heaven
  • O Worship the King (6 verses but they are quite short)

Sunday 8th Nov 
 
Dear All,
It is lock-down again! So we are looking at how to make sure that we are all OK, (though the noise of traffic suggests that there are a lot of 'essential journeys' being made, unlike the silence of the  first lockdown!) Please continue to take care with the basic disciplines to protect yourselves.
We are out of church for our services, and back to just Video services, though the church will be open for private prayer during the day. A massive thank you to Susie, and to Patrick for getting our Video put together this week, it was a big task, and to the youth team for their Celebration videos.
N.B.
  • Please note today the guidance about this morning's Remembrance Sunday below.  
  • Also the Quiz organised for the 14th November
  • This week we have our St Luke's Church Monthly Prayer meeting on Zoom (Second Tuesday of the Month)
  • There will be a Meeting of the new PCC on Monday 16th November.
 
11.00 Two minutes silence. 
We are all being encouraged to hold our own personal silence at home. 
Jeremy and a very small group Royal British Legion and Council members representing us all, will assemble at the War Memorial for a short act of Remembrance. 
We will video record this. Cadet Will, will be laying a wreath on behalf of the youth, and Ros Balfour, whose husband David was lost in the Falkland's War in HMS Sheffield, will lay a wreath on all our behalf. 
Also: Our Sunday video provides our pre-recorded act of remembrance, with Susie Millard’s help which includes the reading of the names, the Bugle Last Post, 2 minutes silence, and the Reveille.

And for us, that we may hear from the Lord, and 
speak and lead as the Spirit of the Lord would have us, 
and give everyone the opportunity to discover the goodness of the Lord,
in the land of the living. (Psalm 27:13)

Sunday 1st November
 
Dear St Luke’s
The problem with thanking some of you when so many are working so hard to maintain the life and community of St Luke’s, I always run the risk of not mentioning someone and disappointing them. However I hope you won’t mind me mentioning the following.
 
Many thanks to all who came to the Zoom APCM on Friday evening. In it I failed to mention my gratitude for the work of Wes Sutton and Elizabeth Knifton whose ministries have been such a blessing to us all. Wes completed his curacy, and is focussed on building Acorn Healing Foundation, while Elizabeth is still helping us with our videos, though she also supports St Francis’ Church and St Mark’s, Bordon.
 
A huge thank you to Dan, and the Holiday Club and Sunday School volunteers for all their work on last night’s on-line Light Party. Which was wonderful, thanks to the Youth and team. And for the Celebration videos being produced.
 
Also, to Grayshott Today’s team led by Helen Williams, sent to the Parish, and Lin Corlett who put together the internal news sheet both keeping us informed. Thank you.

It is with my sincere apologies that this email failed to be sent, some technical problems on my side meant that I didn't manage to get the message to Madi, and she therefore couldn't send it out.
 
As the national landscape changes, we have to watch how we respond, making the APCM, and planning for Remembrance and Christmas difficult. Please pray for me and for us as we try to navigate this difficult passage through to the next season of Church life. Thank you.

Sunday 11 October
 
With Covid stretching on, we are having to accept that while we can pray, we are powerless to control what is happening nationally.  We are beginning to accept that the power of human achievement is not all conquering, and that this is a very complex situation, in all aspects of life. I find it hard to take in the global nature of it all.   
My sense is that I need to move from coping, and putting up with the inconvenience of the restrictions in ‘survival mode’, to embracing the circumstances, and asking for the wisdom of the Lord for the next 6 months.  The question for us all to ask is what the Lord is asking us to do, however small it may seem to us, and doing it with courage and faith.

Sunday 4th October
 

Dear St Luke’s,

The current atmosphere around Covid, is a complex mixture, the ‘restriction fatigue’ we all feel, students, politicians, local lockdowns,
the pressure on businesses, and employment, the astonishment over developments in America, with the White House being affected, leaves us all wondering where to focus.
 
The answer is not easy, but I encourage us all to keep strong, and whatever the pressure, be determined to look after ourselves as much as we can, and to remember a heavenly perspective and trust the Lord, we recommend the Bible reading programme programme, Bible in One Year (BIOY) by HTB, Via the phone app, and Lectio365 a daily prayer meditation App. 
 
Sheila Austin’s message
“In these days of social distancing I have been so very touched by the overwhelming kindness and love shown to me by so many, following the devastating loss of my son Simon. I would like to thank everyone for their prayers and thoughts during this sad and painful time. However,even in the darkness there have been moments of light and for this I thank God for his grace. Sheila”

The latest direction from the Bishop is to conduct this over zoom.
Acknowledging that this is not ideal for all, The plan is to communicate as much as possible of the process by way of preparation in the week prior to the meeting, enabling questions and feedback to be communicated beforehand.
 
We are looking for a new Church Warden to join Edward, 3 Deanery Synod Members and 3 new PCC Members. If you would prayerfully consider serving the Lord and the church in any of these ways, please discuss this with Jeremy or Sheila Austin via the email, Sheila.ag48@btinternet.com.

Ventilation in Churches.
There has been a note from the Diocese to include ventilation in the reduction of and calculation of risk. With the numbers as they are we consider that the space, and distance between people is sufficient. If the numbers attending go up, we will have to keep the doors open, which will mean that the church gets cold quite quickly. Please bring warm clothing in case we have to do this.

Sunday 27th September 
 
Dear St Luke's,
 
Greetings. The season is definitely autumn, and the weather is very different.
With the news of increased numbers of Covid cases, and the rules changing, we have to adapt again. The fragility of life has been brought into focus afresh. With so many assumptions having been questioned already, the lingering impact of Covid on us all is challenging.
Having our faith firmly anchored in the cross and resurrection of Jesus, is a key to navigating uncertainty, for it speaks of our confidence to approach our Father in heaven with boldness. “Let us therefore come boldly to the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need.” (Hebrews 4:16). The God of creation will continually refresh and inspire us, in all circumstances, revealing his love and faithfulness. Spotting the hand of God in the little things and the big is a good preoccupation, and I pray that whatever you are going through, you will be comforted by his love. “Holy Spirit, lead us and guide us, Amen.”
 
Children & Families
Anna Finey is the PCC champion for all aspects relating to Youth & Children, and Dan and his team have already been thinking about how to reach out to families and children. I have asked Anna to work with all involved, in helping me to set up our morning services to welcome new families. This will tie in with the work of Julia Hedger with Babes & Toddlers, to consider our mission to the village. Please pray for the young families that Julia is reaching particularly through her Facebook group. The rules permit her group to continue, though as she has been meeting outside, she is rather weather dependent.
 
****Weekly Video Sunday Service****
Do subscribe to StLukesGrayshott’s Channel. I want to express enormous gratitude to Patrick Johnston for continuing to put these videos together. The link to the youtube video for Sunday 27th September is https://youtu.be/P87fsF_O4Js
 
10.30 am Morning Worship Live ‘in person’
Please bring a mask, and follow all directions for our safety. This way, we minimise risk. Sadly we cannot have more than 6 meetings socially on Church grounds, so please disperse after the service. The after service zoom chat has been a great place to meet, share news, and pray for one another.  Work on streaming this service continues through the YouTube Channel (subscribe and click notifications bell)
 
6.00 pm BCP Evening Prayer
The words will be projected so we don’t need books, but if you have a prayer book at home, please feel free to bring it.
 
Message from Chris Grocock. (Evening Zoomers)
Just a reminder - no zoom service this week.
Jeremy is leading evening prayer 6pm
I will however resume zoom services next week October 4th and the week after October 11th
every best wish

We are also collecting for African pastors, to have bicycles. (5p collection - all donations welcome)

The next day, after cursing the fig tree, and teaching a lesson on the power of faith, The Pharisees question Jesus in the Temple, about his authority to upset the accepted order.
(Our readings are for the Harvest Service.)

Dear St Luke's,
 
The question of how we reach out to our community at a time of increased restriction is one of the chief issues for me as the Government regulations tighten, following increased incidence of Covid-19 infection.  We can all pray that a viable and effective vaccine will be discovered and rolled out so that we can build our economy and community again with confidence.  As we pray for our nation, please pray for a local and national turning to the Lord, with humility, and that we are able to meet the needs, and prepare to do so in faith.
Julia Hedger’s through her Babes & Toddlers group reaches a set of mothers who have very much appreciated her support, and with videos with nursery rhymes and Bible stories, and recently a socially distanced meeting, which we want to maintain as long as possible, within the regulations. Through these things, she has kept a number of families feeling connected. 
 
We send our love and condolences to Sheila Austin who is our PCC Secretary, and has served the church in many ways for years.  Tragically she has been bereaved of her son, we are all in shock. Please pray for her, her daughter-in-law and grandchildren.

Africa Appeal - Nakuru
You will remember Daniel Gitau, who spoke from Nakuru in Kenya recently by video. 
He is dealing with a very volatile political situation and asks for our prayers for him as he mobilises the Church leaders 
to coordinate, and pray, to help bring stability to their region. He feels directed by the Lord that a demonstration of Unity among the churches, 
is the best political statement they can make.
 
For those who gave towards the feeding and mercy donations that are providing for the people's vital necessities, thank you.
This is helping to stave off starvation: (£600 feeds 170 people for 3 weeks). 
Sadly, inter-tribal war has broken out again in a dispute over land, houses have been burned down, and there have been 14 people in hospital due to arrow wounds, requiring serious operations. The hospital does not feed the patients well, and they need fresh fruit and good food to help recovery, If you feel moved to help this situation, please contact me, and I can talk to you about how to do so.
 
Harvest Food Collection. Our Harvest service will be NEXT WEEK September. (27th)
We will give our food collection to the excellent work of St Francis’ Church FOOD BANK, Headley (excellent report on p21, Grayshott Today, August https://issuu.com/grayshotttoday/docs/grayshott_today_aug_2020). Please put your contributions on the tables at the back of the Church. Thank you.

Giving
We are enormously grateful for the faithfulness of so many to give at this time. Giving is part of our service to God and an act of worship, echoing His heart to give himself for us, and a way of showing that we are not bound to material possessions.  In other words it is good for the soul!

Pray for those who are sick, and whose treatment is delayed, or diagnosis unclear.

As August races by, I am grateful to all who have been helping me to prepare for the new academic year, and how we navigate the time we are in.
 
I received a very kind note from Elizabeth Hardy, thanking us for our messages for her move, assuring us of her continuing prayers, and she hopes to be popping in to visit us occasionally when things open up more.
 
Next week (3pm on the 30th) Philippa has invited us to another ‘Glory in the Garden’ for a socially distanced scripture reflection at the Land of Nod.
 
I want to thank Clive Loder and Patrick Johnston who have been preparing the technology to enable us to live stream our services, which we will trial today.
 
Please note our Annual Parochial Church Meeting (APCM) is scheduled for Friday 23rd October, when we will be looking for a new Church Warden to join Edward, and 3 new PCC Members. If you would prayerfully consider serving the Lord and the church in any of these ways, please discuss this with Jeremy or Sheila Austin via my email, below to discuss it as soon as you can.

Africa Appeal - Nakuru
This will help us to raise money to help feed a very poor in the Nakuru area of Kenya, made worse by the outbreak of inter tribal violence, leading to the burning of houses, and attacks. Four pregnant mothers have miscarried due to the stress, and one church member has died. Of course there are many needs in the world, including the desperate situation in Beirut, however, if you feel that you would like to give to this, please send it with a note to The Great Commission Trust Collection. via the usual channels on our Website
Background:
Pastor Daniel Gitau, speaking on our video and service today, has for the last few months been feeding about 170 people twice a month, through his churches. For the last three times this has been through the generosity of some St Luke’s individuals (it costs £600 to feed that number of people for 3 weeks. I have opened this opportunity to us all to help.
We can do this through the Great Commission Trust. General Information on Daniel’s work can be found here: http://greatcommissiontrust.org/dundori.html  
 
Vicar’s Relief Fund 
Thank you to all the people who have helped through making masks, and other people’s very generous direct donations. We continue to offer financial help through the fund. We have received some very touching notes of gratitude. It has been a blessing to be able to help.

Sunday 28th June
Dear St Luke’s,

 

I am delighted to be writing to you again, of course we miss you all, and being able to get together. If you are wondering what I am thinking at this time, that is a fair question. I am pondering the things that the Lord might be doing, and saying to us, and praying for wisdom, but have a growing vision which includes us reaching out to the parish, and building infrastructure to support the vulnerable and struggling in our area.  I hope we can be part of the story of regeneration and recovery post covid-19, in all areas of the life of our community. Our responsibility is of course to represent the Gospel, and live in the grace and power of the Lord, seeking to respond to the promptings and guidance He gives.  Elizabeth’s talk today says exactly that.

 

I believe that the Lord is working in all of our hearts, and through the difficulty of this time, believe that He is shaping things, and positioning us to better fulfil our calling as a community.

 

The release of a date when we are permitted to meet together, is a challenge, and as I say in the video, we are working on that, to balance safety for all with our capacity to genuinely worship. The challenges include the fact that according to the NHS letter I received, I am supposed to be shielding until the end of next month!

 

If you feel dislocated, I am sorry, and we want to find a way of helping you to feel connected,  but I ask you to be patient with us, and for every one of us to offer ourselves to the Lord afresh with the words of the Lord’s prayer: “Your kingdom come, your will be done, on earth,(in my life,) as it is in heaven”, and listen for His response.
