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.

Africa Appeal - Nakuru
Thank you to those who gave towards the feeding and mercy donations for the feeding programme that is providing for the vital necessities, which I hope we will continue to help.
This is helping to stave off starvation for a community in the Nakuru area. £600 feeds 170 people for 3 weeks.
This is enormously appreciated as a practical way of loving our neighbours.
Please contact Jeremy if you would like to give to this need. Thank you.

The extended shielding for some is a cause of great stress, please pray for those who are isolating still, that they will have peace and contentment in their confinement. Please pray for those who are sick, and whose treatment is delayed, or diagnosis unclear, and for Sheila, whom the Lord has comforted in the loss of her son Simon. There are some without jobs who are searching, applying and interviewing, all these needs I believe the Lord wants to bless, and invites us to be part of his work through prayer.

Sunday 20th September
 
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)

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

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.
