The Collect

God our redeemer, you have delivered us from the power of darkness and brought us into the kingdom of your Son: grant, that as by his death he has recalled us to life, so by his continual presence in us he may raise us to eternal joy; through Jesus Christ your Son our Lord, who is alive and reigns with you, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever.  Amen

If you sense yourself becoming isolated or are feeling particularly lonely, do make sure you do not suffer alone but contact friends or family.  They may not be able to visit, but you will feel better for having spoken.  Equally, if you know of others who may be in this position, please do make contact to see if you can help.  Ask people how they are and wait for an answer.

Other News this Week

The situation regarding Covid means that we are no longer required to wear a mask.   If you are in any way concerned for your safety then wear a mask.  We will continue to livestream services on Facebook and upload the audio on our website as we have been doing.

Tygre Club is back!  Please let neighbours and new families know; it would be lovely to see families returning to the church.  We are also in need of 1-2 helpers for creche; we have two dates in the next term when we are short of help, so if anyone can help that would be amazing – maybe even as a one-off to see what we do?  You will usually find one of us at the back of church most Sundays, so come and have a chat.  Thank you from the Tygre Club and creche team.

At the end of our 9.30 and 11am Services, Revd. Mike invites you to assemble at the Church door for a photograph

Mike & Ali’s Farewell “Do” is on this Sunday (22) at 1pm.  A number of people have not responded to the emails and if too many just show up we shall be forced to turn them away as there is a finite cut off for numbers and we cannot exceed that for fire or insurance purposes.  If you wish to have your name on the list please let Gail know as soon as possible on 813254

Advance Notice for your diaries:  There is to be a Tea Dance (FREE OF CHARGE) on 3 June from 2.30 – 5pm at Tylers Green Village Hall.  Increase your circle of friends. Ticket enquiries Jan Carey on 07514 807131 or jancarey1610@hotmail.com.

One Can Food Bank Trust:  “Go the Extra Mile”.  How far can you go to help stamp out food poverty locally.  It is a fun, interactive way to get involved with your local foodbank, and try to get as many donations in as we can ahead of the summer holidays when many of our collection points (such as in schools) will be closed.  We currently need tinned meat meals, tinned ham and corned beef, tinned soup, UHT milk, tinned potatoes, tinned vegetables, instant coffee, condiments & sauces, toilet rolls, toothpaste, shower gel, deodorant, sanitary products, nappies (sizes 2-6), Bags for life, rice (500g).  Currently there is less than 2 weeks’ worth of stock in the warehouses.  There are Collection boxes in The Sanctuary, Holy Trinity’s north porch or at 11 Kings Ride.

Memorial Service for Revd. Nigel Stowe:  Pauline, David and Jonathan  invite you to Holy Trinity Penn Street on Saturday 21 May at 11.30am, followed by refreshments in Holmer Green Hall.  All are welcome.

The next Red Lion Monthly Lunch will be on Sunday 29 May (a week later than usual this month).  The menus, which include desserts (they would be grateful if we could show our choices in these as well in future) are in The Sanctuary and the Porch at Holy Trinity.  Please let Gail know if you wish to join us and your choice of main course and dessert.  Many thanks.

A reminder that on Sunday, 5 June there will be a service of Holy Communion at Holy Trinity at 8am followed by a celebration of the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee on the Tylers Green Common at 10.30am.  There will not be 9.30am or 11am services that day.    We will bring chairs to the Common for the service but you are encouraged to bring a deckchair if you have one.

Tylers Green Village Hall has collection points for used stamps and greetings cards, which support various charities, so please save any and pop them along (there is a letterbox if the hall is not open).  They also have a jigsaw library each Thursday morning from 10-11am and a Community boards game cafe each Wednesday from 2-4pm.  Pop in and have a chat and a coffee.
