This week's pew sheet, readings and sermon
With great regret it has been decided that - for the time being - there will be no public acts of worship at either Lavenham or Preston St Mary. We will however be broadcasting services from the Rectory on Sunday and Wednesday mornings.
You are invited to join our 10:15am Sunday morning service by Zoom or telephone. Please see this week's pew sheet (in left hand margin) to find how to obtain the necessary joining code.
Ash Wednesday – 17th February
10am Holy Communion on Zoom (link in from 9.50am) to be followed by 10-15 min Holy Land video on the setting for Jesus’ 40 days in the wilderness.
Video or phone links will be sent automatically to all who receive the regular email circulation, otherwise available on request after 13th Feb from email@example.com / 07768 283636.
Small quantities of ashes, prepared hygienically in sealable polythene bags and with instructions, are available from the church for collection (one bag sufficient per household). A recording will be made of the service and the video for those unable to join but who wish to view later.
Supporting our local foodbank
Foodbanks still have clients in dire need of support. Our local foodbank remains open to provide emergency food supplies for those within our community who cannot afford food.For some time now, the foodbank has benefitted from the generous donations from the people of Lavenham. You can continue to donate food, toiletries and household.products at the East of England Co-op. Their specific needs will be communicated via their Facebook page: Storehouse Foodbank Sudbury.
You can also make a financial donation on their Facebook page or their website ‘Storehouse Foodbank Sudbury’ and click on ‘give’ or send a cheque, payable to ‘Storehouse’ – to Vineyard Centre, Tudor Road, Sudbury, CO10 1NP.
Thank you for your support!
