THIS WEEK'S SERMON THEME : Meet Jesus: The baby born in Bethlehem Jesus came into the world as a human baby in a place called Bethlehem. The Bible tells us that Mary was his mother, but God was his father. God wanted us to know who he was, and what he cared about, so he sent his Son to meet us.

THIS SUNDAY we revert to a single 11am morning Service - hopefully outside! Thanks to all who have worked extra hard to provide 2 morning services for the past year!
Each week, Dave will check 4 weather forecasts to decide if the Service will be inside or outside, and will confirm with a 9am post on St John's Facebook and Twitter on Sunday morning
Set-Up team for Sunday 25 July - please turn up at 9:45am: Folu, Richard, Isaac, Darius, Tolu, Eddie
Welcome/Stewarding Team - Please turn up at 10am: Bridget, Justine, Sarah, Gladys
Members of YPF are invited to turn up at 10:30am, if the Service is outside, to assist where needed. Please report to Chuck or Carol
Dave and Robert have a list for people to sign up to help at future open-air Services over the Summer.

CHURCH SERVICES :
We have received guidance from the Church of England about what happens now following the ending of most restrictions on 19th July. A summary is, "Take account of the number of infections in your area and continue to be cautious". We're planning to be outside at 11am for the next 7 weeks so this should be a safer environment and people can choose to wear a mask or not. If we're inside, then masks should continue to be worn. If people are concerned about larger numbers with just one morning service, we suggest people come to the Evening Service, which will be a much quieter repeat of the Morning Service.
People who have any symptoms of Covid-19 should not attend Church.

Thanks : To all who have completed a Gift Aid form to enable St John's to claim the tax back on donations. We have just received £19,464.85 for all the Gift Aid donations in 2020.

TFM Walk the Way Mission : Evangelists are walking the Via Beata (Way of Blessing), a long distance footpath across the UK with Christian art installations at various points. Teams left St David's in the west and Lowestoft in the east on 19th June, and the walkers aim to meet near the middle of the country on 4th September, having told people about Jesus on the way. On 24th July, the West Team was at St Mary's Church, Cynghordy (SA20 0LG) and the East Team at St Mary's Church, Bluntisham (PE28 3LW). Please pray for this venture and for all the people the TFM evangelists will meet. The TFM website has a link to a daily blog.
