Rev Chris update for 31st Jan. and 7th Feb. 2021

Dear all,

In my last update I asked for some ‘highlights of the week’ and have had the following wonderful submissions;

Joan Sturgess told us of the joy of a new addition to the family when her great niece was born 2 weeks before Christmas. Wonderful news in troubling times.
Jackie Harlock was tremendously encouraged to watch President Biden’s inauguration and to hear his pleas for unity and decency.
Alan & Fiona Foreman were pleased to see their 4-year-old orchid produce another bloom this week. It has been flowering since November and is the best it has ever been.

Ann Waddams has been busy making marmalade and then to burn off all that sugar she has been doing an online ‘Walk1000miles’ challenge as a virtual route from Lands End to John O’Groats. At the time of writing, she was on the A30 in the middle of Bodmin Moor!

Sarah (my wife) sent me this picture of her first sighting of snowdrops on a walk around Hucking Church.

Thank you to all those that submitted a story or picture – please do keep sending them in. It is heartening to hear of these things whether that is the joyous birth of a child, the beauty of a flower or the tastiness of marmalade.

God saw everything that he had made, and indeed, it was very good. GENESIS 1:31

I am having a break next week so there will not be an update, but it will return the week after. The Services & Events page has the details of what is going on up until the 21st February – please note arrangements for Ash Wednesday with a phone in service in the morning (service order to be sent with next update) and a Zoom service in the evening.

Public Worship remains suspended, and this has now been extended to the end of March, unless it becomes apparent that we can have physical services before then – in the meantime St Nicholas Church will be back open next week for private prayer during weekdays.

Every blessing,

Rev Chris
