Dear All

I hope this email finds you safe and well. I'm hearing of lots of folk going in for vaccinations and local numbers of cases are falling. Still not out of the woods and as part of making not going out a little less dull and lonely we have our weekly virtual coffee. Would be great to see you from 10.30.

The ancient office of Compline derives its name from a Latin word meaning ‘completion’ (completorium). It is above all a service of quietness and reflection before rest at the end of the day. 

It is most effective when the ending is indeed an ending, without additions, conversation or noise. If the service is in church, those present depart in silence; if at home, they go quietly to bed.

There are a few things around which it might be good for our churches to be involved with. If anyone would like to take a more active part in prayer, reading the bible, working with young people, thinking about church growth, visiting baptism families, thinking about our faith, and many other things, then please contact David if this is something God might be nudging you towards.
