Today we were all back online as the national lockdown means we can’t meet in church at the moment. A couple of people seem to have had streaming issues, sorry if that was you. It seems to be those who were trying to join on iPads/iPhones – the amazing Adam is looking into it and it will hopefully be sorted for next week! We looked at the parable of the 10 bridesmaids and thought about how we keep our lamps burning through times of waiting in darkness, especially through this new lockdown.

Our prayer for today:
God, our refuge and strength,
bring near the day when wars shall cease
and poverty and pain shall end,
that earth may know the peace of heaven
through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
Do keep praying for one another, do the things that ‘stock up your oil’ and ‘keep your lamp burning’, and ask for support if you need it.
