A message to Histon and Impington from James.
The Church of England has suspended all public worship so St Andrew’s Histon will no longer meet together on Sundays for services so we’re bringing church to everyone at home via our YouTube channel
Songs for worship this week (as discussed in the video):
Great is Thy Faithfulness
Oceans by Hillsong United ‘Spirit lead me where my trust is without borders’
Faithful One ‘All through the storm your love is the anchor’
Way Maker by Leeland This is a song we’ve learnt at Inspire recently. The song reminds us of who God is and that he is here with us. Even when we can’t see it or feel it, God is working—he never stops working.
Our key priority at present is the pastoral care of one another and our mission to care for all in our parish. We are working with many people from our villages to ensure that everyone is able to access the support and care they need if they are self-isolating or sick.
If you need help and don’t have a local volunteer contact yet, please get in touch with the Church Office email@example.com (01223 320420)
In these troubled times, we have a loving and unchanging God who cares for each one of us as human beings. St Andrew’s Church, Histon, would like to pray for you and your loved ones.
If you would value prayer, please email firstname.lastname@example.org, and we will pass on your request to a team of people who will pray. If you would like someone to pray with you over the phone, please include your contact number in the email and a member of the prayer team will call you as soon as they are able to.
We will not share your details with anyone outside the prayer team, and our policy on confidentiality is contained within our Safeguarding Policy.
Children and Young People
Our children and young people are meeting in their SJ Club and EDGE groups online on Sunday mornings. If your children or young people would like to join them please contact Tim Blake email@example.com. We also have some resources to help with worship at home as a family.
Funerals and weddings
Funerals will still take place but with immediate family only present up to a maximum of 10 people. However following the Government’s recent announcement Weddings have been suspended.
‘The LORD is a stronghold for the oppressed, a stronghold in times of trouble. And those who know your name put their trust in you, for you, O LORD, have not forsaken those who seek you.’Psalm 9.9-10
Listen! I am standing at the door, knocking; if you hear my voice and open the door, I will come in to you and eat with you, and you with me.Revelation 3:20
