Easter Greetings from Churches Together

Normally Churches Together would mark and celebrate Easter in the centre of Hoddesdon with an open air service on Good Friday - we had plans to do this yesterday as normal. As we all know, the 'lockdown' has put an end to this, at least for this Easter. This doesn't mean that we're not celebrating, however, with many of our churches hosting online services - do check out their websites on the Churches page.

We've also put together a short message with representatives of some of our fellowships to share our Easter greetings this special weekend.

Creation Care Challenge

At our last Churches Together prayer event a few of us got talking about how as churches we could respond to the climate crisis and how it would be good to find some way of working together and encouraging each other. This scheme is the first fruit of that and sits nicely alongside the Lent Bible Studies that have been offered to us.

The idea is that members of our churches sign up to undertake a themed challenge each week over Lent, maybe with a coordinator in each church to help promote the event. Four sheets explaining, promoting and coordinating the event can be found here:

Prayer Points for the Winter Night Shelter - Week Three

The Broxbourne Winter Night Shelter started on 7th January 2019 and is running until 3rd March.

  • Praise God that the night shelter is continuing to go well. The number of guests each night is gradually building up, starting with two in the first week, now up to five in the third week.
  • The volunteers continue to work well together, and there has been a good atmosphere at each venue. Guests have been grateful for gloves, hats, socks and scarves, provided through the Foodbank.
  • Please pray for the venue coordinators and the core organising team, that they will have wisdom in making decisions about how to manage specific needs of guests.
  • Pray that in this cold weather, all those who need this service will find out about how to access it.
  • Give thanks for the volunteers, who have been making the guests feel welcomed and valued.
