Weekly letter from St Luke's - 5 November 2021

Dear Parish Friends This week we celebrate the festivals of All Souls and All Saints. There will be a special service of Evening Prayer for All Souls at St Luke's tomorrow at 6pm (also streamed over Zoom) at which we will remember and give thanks for those who have died who were instrumental in our life's journey. Then on Sunday morning we will remember all the saints of all ages and places at our services at 7am and 9am (with the 9am service also being streamed over Zoom as usual). Orders of service for the streamed services, together with the week's notice paper, are available via the links below. Remember too the afternoon for families with young Children at the Hutchings' place on Saturday from 4pm. A prayer for All Saints from The Mission Theology Advisory Group of Churches Together in Britain and Ireland: Lord, today, We thank you for the Saints now gone before us whose faith defined their living and their dying; those who loved you more than their own lives; those who are still mirrors of your love. We celebrate the saints who walk among us rejoicing while they walk in your footsteps, making your name known in a fractured world, against injustice, prejudice, hatred, evil. We stand with those who sacrifice themselves to bring about your kingdom here on earth. Lord, your grace shines in the lives of Saints. We thank you for their example, their holy words. Your Spirit inspired them. Come Holy Spirit inspire us to be saints in your Church now. Yours in Christ Rev'd Timothy
