Ascension Day and Thy Kingdom Come – 21-31 May 2020
For the last few years, the days between Ascension Day and Pentecost have been designated as days of prayer, across the world, and is known as ‘Thy Kingdom Come’. We are asked to pray for five people throughout this time. In addition, we will be holding a short conference call service at midday, beginning on Ascension Day and ending with our normal Sunday service on Pentecost Sunday. Service sheets will be available via the website or by email. There will also be a ‘live stream’ service from Exeter Cathedral in the evening. To join the Conference call please use our usual number: 0330 606 0403 Access code: 546789# You are all very welcome.

In preparation for the next Film Club meeting on 1 June 2020 at 2.30pm you will need to watch ‘Educating Rita’ which will be shown on 17 May 2020 at 10.30pm on BBC1 or BBC iplayer.
This week’s Youtube reflection should be available for you to watch on Sunday.
Although we have heard from the Prime Minister that there is to be some relaxation of the lockdown guidance, we have not heard of any other changes from the Church of England or the Diocese of Exeter. This will probably affect the production and distribution of our Today magazine. At the moment we have been instructed not to print or distribute paper copies. So, the magazine is being put together by our new editor Dawn Williams, (thank you Dawn) - and it will appear on the website. If the guidelines change, we will try and respond accordingly.
With my love and continued prayers,
