Dear friends,

I hope this finds you well and still celebrating the great festival of Easter - 50 days (at least!) not 1, so keep eating that chocolate, and living in that transforming hope of Easter people. 

This morning, there's a chance to see and hear each other!
Today, Sunday, at 11am we're holding our first live St Mary's Zoom Coffee chat after (or before) worship.  Please click on Sunday's link above just before 11am and hopefully you'll be transported into our Zoom Coffee room for a chat - don't forget your coffee! (and you don't need to download zoom). Same again on Wednesday!

Below you will find the link (click on the bluebells) to our simple service of the word for this Second Sunday of Easter. With thanks to Sheila for reading the gospel, to Angela for leading our prayers, and to Bishop Andrew for a wonderful sermon. 

This coming week sees the start of us being able to share in prayer, worship and fellowship throughout the week together at home. To join in please go to St Mary's Facebook page (again you can just click on the links below if easier)....

9am Morning Prayer from the vicarage prayer chair live at 9am every weekday or recorded if later (via St Mary's Facebook )

9pm Compline - Tuesdays & Thursdays, a peaceful close to the day. Again live on St Mary's Facebook page if at 9pm or recorded if later (via St Mary's Facebook

Finally, something offline!  See details of our new Parish Prayers etc booklet below. All on St Mary's electoral roll should receive a printed copy this week. Please email if you would like one and haven't received a copy - and do give copies to others. Hope this offers a valuable additional companion in these at home days with God and with each other.  The second edition is already developing - do send your suggestions for inclusion to anybody on the Parish Prayers etc compilation team.

I hope you can give all the above a try as we grow in our prayer, faith, mission and rhythms of life together as the church alive here in this beautiful part of God's creation. Please invite others to join too.  

There are also some new ways below to help the Foodbank, NHS staff and others during these difficult times - thank you for all your support already.

And again, thank you so much to all who have contributed to our worship (and continue through the pain of dropbox and movie making!), and who are giving such vital, mutual pastoral support to each other at home through these weeks.  

We continue to pray for all in our parish, as well as across the world, who are sick at this time, naming silently in our prayers those in hospital, those at home, those grieving alone. 

May the peace of Christ dwell with you, in your homes and hearts, as we journey on together. 

He is risen! Alleluia!
Rev'd Sarah

Below, you’ll find details of the new Coronavirus Shalford & Peasmarsh Community Support & Care Network. This is for you and every single person we hope who would welcome help from a neighbour, anytime. Please spread the word to all you know. Through this network of local neighbours, everybody in Shalford & Peasmarsh can call on practical, social or other support: life-giving connection and nourishment in these difficult times. Please encourage people to call for support, particularly if they feel isolated, vulnerable, overwhelmed, or just want to link up with somebody for regular chats. We now have over 150 keen volunteers ready to help - thank you! - grouped by small local street/area.
Throughout these days and weeks, please keep a close eye on our website for latest updates, news, resources, support, opportunities for connecting with others, encouragement in discipleship together.
Follow us on Facebook too:  @StMarysShalford  
Christ be with me, Christ within me,
Christ behind me, Christ before me,
Christ beside me, Christ to win me,
Christ to comfort and restore me.
Christ beneath me, Christ above me,
Christ in quiet, Christ in danger,
Christ in hearts of all that love me,
Christ in mouth of friend and stranger.
