Sunday 27th September
Blessed Lord, you are great, the heavens speak of your glory.
You do wonders in heaven and we see the signs on earth.
We the work of your hands worship you today,
accept our worship in Jesus name.
We have not forsaken the gathering of the congregation,
we have come to fellowship with each other in your presence,
come down and lord and let us feel your presence.
Thank you for all your support of Wrington Chapel and its work in the past.
We realise that many people are hard-pressed at the moment, and church may be the last thing on your mind. However, we are looking to the future when we can reopen and support each other in our usual way. Unfortunately, being closed does not mean our expenses are substantially less. If you already have a standing order set up, then thank you. But if you haven't, please consider getting in touch with Steve Osman and setting one up. If that is impossible, please continue to save up your collection money, and we will collect it all together when we reopen. Please note that the rules do not allow us to claim any Gift Aid on collections that are not taken up in church. So do NOT drop collection money off at Steve's house. Simply take out a standing order, or save it up for that great and glorious reopening day.
'The Lord is my strength and my defence;
he has become my salvation.
He is my God, and I will praise him, my father's God,
and I will exalt him'
Our prayer focus this week is Tearfund.
It is sometimes easy to focus on the problems
brought by Covid 19 and forget there are
still extreme poverty,
still discrimination -
all problems Tearfund works to relief.
Pray that they are able to continue
to provide this relief for people under difficult circumstances.

One Spirit With Him
What does it mean to be one spirit with Jesus? We see how this comes from the message of freedom in him and the way he now lives within those who follow. We really are different at the core.

Romans 6 verses 1 to 14
Dead to Sin, Alive in Christ
1 What shall we say, then? Shall we go on sinning so that grace may increase?
2 By no means! We are those who have died to sin; how can we live in it any longer?
3 Or don't you know that all of us who were baptized into Christ Jesus were baptized into his death?
4 We were therefore buried with him through baptism into death in order that, just as Christ was raised from the dead through the glory of the Father, we too may live a new life.
5 For if we have been united with him in a death like his, we will certainly also be united with him in a resurrection like his.
6 For we know that our old self was crucified with him so that the body ruled by sin might be done away with,[a] that we should no longer be slaves to sin-
7 because anyone who has died has been set free from sin.
8 Now if we died with Christ, we believe that we will also live with him.
9 For we know that since Christ was raised from the dead, he cannot die again; death no longer has mastery over him.
10 The death he died, he died to sin once for all; but the life he lives, he lives to God.
11 In the same way, count yourselves dead to sin but alive to God in Christ Jesus.
12 Therefore do not let sin reign in your mortal body so that you obey its evil desires.
13 Do not offer any part of yourself to sin as an instrument of wickedness, but rather offer yourselves to God as those who have been brought from death to life; and offer every part of yourself to him as an instrument of righteousness.
14 For sin shall no longer be your master, because you are not under the law, but under grace.
