Dear Church Family,
 
I’ll keep this short as you have already an email this week from church!
 
Firstly to say, you will be pleased to know that the church family were very generous in responding to the opportunity to express our gratitude to Chris for all that he has done to make our online services possible. The amount given by the church family has all been passed on to Chris and this has been a significant contribution to help him purchase a new laptop. Chris has asked me to share this with you:
‘When Dave and I discussed producing the services on YouTube we both thought it would only be for a couple of weeks or so. Ha! How wrong we both were!! This week’s video will be the 32nd week and the 33rd video, as we did one for Good Friday as well. It has been a privilege to create these videos and see the church family come together each week. I'd just like to thank the church family for their generosity enabling me to get a new laptop.  Thank you all and God bless.’ Chris
 
Secondly, a reminder that the APCM on Monday will not be in the church building but online. It starts at 7.30pm and the link has been sent via email. If you are unable to use Zoom you can phone and listen to what is happening – but you will not be able to ask questions or vote. Please contact me (Dave) if you would like to join by telephone. If you are able to join in on Monday evening please do put in your diary!
 
On Sunday morning we are looking forward to hearing Andy Hirons sharing from Nehemiah 8 and we have a special item for the children as well as connecting with one of our students. Look forward to being together then!
 
Yours as ever,
 
Dave
