The Church Annual Meetings for St Luke’s Holmes Chapel will be held on Sunday 9th May 2021, starting from 11am and preceded by a short service of Morning Worship at 10.30am.
These short but important meetings will again be held using Zoom telecommunications because of restrictions on in person meetings.
Anyone with an interest in St Luke’s Church, its activities and Christian mission is invited to attend.
The advertised 2021 revision for additions and other changes to be made to the Church Electoral Roll was completed on Sunday 18th April. There are now 214 individuals on the revised Electoral Roll . Their names are listed on the noticeboard in the church porch and on the website for checking.
We do well to hear God’s Word in Ephesians 4:2 through the coming weeks. Coming out of a series of lockdowns will be disorienting. Many people are struggling with their general wellbeing. It’s exciting for many and good for all of us that society is becoming more social again, but we will need to be careful……… not so much about the continuing vigilance with the virus (although there is that), but more about showing care for others. We need to be full of caring.
Ephesians 4:2 says “Be completely humble and gentle; be patient, bearing with one another in love.” This teaching was written to address the need for the Christians in Ephesus to treat one another very well in testing times, as it continues “Make every effort to keep the unity of the Spirit through the bond of peace.”
We are very pleased to announce that limited services of communal worship have restarted at St Luke’s Holmes Chapel. There is now a restricted service of Holy Communion at 9.00am on Sundays and at 10.30am on Wednesdays, subject to the usual COVID-19 conditions of social distancing, wearing face covering etc.
