Dear Church member
Christ is risen! Alleluia!
I hope you have been able to celebrate the world-changing, liberating resurrection of our Lord Jesus despite the current restrictions we remain under. The resurrection changes everything.
In our services this Sunday we hear again the story of Thomas and reflect on the nature and importance of belief and doubt. What do we believe and why? How much evidence do we need? Is it wrong to doubt? How can we get along with those who believe very different things to us?
Our online service will be available from 9am, and an interactive, family-friendly version will be Zoom-hosted at 10.30am (joining details here).
We are also re-starting 6pm services in an alternating pattern, this week (11th April) at St Matthew's, and next week (18th April) at All Saints', and so on; it would be helpful if you would click here to indicate your intention to attend.
Our leadership teams are currently thinking and praying about our pattern of services for the summer and beyond. Please be praying about this important process. More news in due course.
We join with millions in giving thanks to God for the life of Prince Philip who died today aged 99, and for the contribution that he made to the life of our nation, and for his long and loving partnership with our Queen. We pray for the Queen, the rest of the Royal Family, and for all who mourn. May God bless them and comfort them in their grief, and assure them of his loving purposes for them and his resurrection power.
Yours, in Christ,
Revd Dr Jonathan Mobey
Rector of Harwell with Chilton
