Dear Church member
Our second (ever) online service should be available on the website from 9am on Sunday (29th March) - please join in if you can.
Sadly we are required to close the doors of our church buildings at this time, but the Church of God continues to be active in many different ways. As well as online services, we intend to share other resources and encouragement in the coming weeks. This week alongside James' sermon on John 11 - the Raising of Lazarus - please check out Peter Barton's reflection on two of the other readings for this Sunday; more devotions and reflections in due course. Families may like to check out resources on the Children and Families Work pages, including Melanie leading "See and Know" as you've never seen or known it before!
More links to follow, but you might like to check out some of a growing series of home-grown devotionals including this heart-warming offering from the family of Keith and Kristyn Getty - slightly less polished than we usually see these professional musicians!
Lent and Coronavirus bring us face to face with our mortality and the reality of living in the shadow of death, but as we approach Easter and reflect on the resurrection of Christ pre-figured in the raising of Lazarus, let us focus on, celebrate and share with others the sure hope of resurrection and eternal life for all who put their trust in Jesus.
Yours, in Christ,
Revd Dr Jonathan Mobey
Rector of Harwell with Chilton
