Sunday Service – 3 May 2020

Good morning. We pray that you have had a good week, which for the gardeners amongst us included some welcome rain! As usual our united worship today is based on the Service Sheet which you should have received by email or through your door yesterday, and which you can download here. If you are reading the Service Sheet online you should be able to click the links to get to the readings and songs. You should also have received our usual 7/52 notice sheet, but you can also download it here. 7/52 contains news and lots of suggestions for prayer and other information. Don’t forget to scroll right through this page and click on any other links after the readings and songs. There are things here that are worth seeing and not included on the printed sheet.

And Now For Something Completely Different

Two things this week.

The first is a fascinating documentary about the relationship between Science and God. The writer Oz Guinness has a conversation with Oxford University Professor of Mathematics John Lennox, which you can find here. Lennox has written a number of books on the subject, including the recent Where is God in a Coronavirus World? published by the Good Book Company. You can see John speaking about the issues here underneath the details of the book.

The second is an opportunity for a trip to the Netherlands to see the amazing display of spring bulbs at the world famous gardens of Keukenhof. For the first time in 71 years the gardens have had to close to the public but have filmed a number of tours so the blooms can still be enjoyed in all their beauty and glory.
