Dear friends,

Welcome to St Mary’s Shalford e-news with worship links. 

Today we’re back in church with a simple service of Holy Communion in the little sacred side chapel in St Mary’s, particularly appropriate today as we celebrate musicians and music. The St Mary's organ is very prominent in this little chapel, and Liz our wonderful organist is often found here too!, so the chapel's becoming known for it's music as the St Cecilia chapel - St Cecilia, the patron saint of music and musicians, who as the musicians played at her wedding 'sang in her heart to the Lord'. Special thanks to Mary Tyler, who blesses us this morning with her musicianship on the clarinet....with Summertime to send us out, and then do stay on for the special concert Mary’s recorded for us which follows on after this service, or you can view from St Mary’s website anytime.
In fact we give thanks for the whole Tyler family today, such wonderful encouragers within St Mary’s church family.  
Bishop Jo help us wrestle with the challenging story of Abraham sacrificing Isaac as she preaches with us today.  
Next Sunday, churches can official open for worship again but we don’t yet know guidelines of who or how many or what will be safe.  So sadly I can't announce our worship for next week or the following few just yet, but I hope next Sunday at St Mary’s if the guidelines allow, a few at least might be able to gather outside hopefully in our new 'woodland chapel' that’s developing in the churchyard. Whenever we are able to worship in person together again, beginning outside rather than inside the building can help us to witness and remember that God’s church is vitally outside at the edge as well as in the heart with all. 

I hope too we’ll be able to broadcast on Youtube Live (as well as recorded later) for all to participate online who can't attend, as we continue as St Mary’s virtually and physically present and inclusive for all.
More news next week too hopefully of some forthcoming St Mary's courses, and small fellowship group opportunities, as well as ways to volunteer for the longer-term in the much needed Shalford & Peasmarsh Community Support Network underpinned by St Mary's Pastoral Care Fund.   
So the main news this week really is......more soon!
For now, though...

May you know the presence of God through this coming week,
God who knows our needs
God who shares our joys
God who hears our cries
God who feels our pain
and heals our wounds   Amen        

with love and prayers,
Rev'd Sarah
