Sunday 29th November
Today we will be sharing in communion.
You may want to get bread and a drink ready.
Heavenly father, our provider, our maker and our protector.
Through your goodness, we are alive and healthy enough to gather and worship you.
We praise you for all that you have given us and thank you in Jesus' name.
Father, we commit all of our good deeds to you
and ask that everything we do be done for your glory forever and ever.
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.

Advent 1 - God's Name
As we enter Advent, we look at the name of God. What's in a name? Does it matter what we call God? And how do we misuse God's name? We explore these issues, and then we share in Communion together.

1st John 1 verses 1 to 10
The incarnation of the Word of life
1 That which was from the beginning, which we have heard, which we have seen with our eyes, which we have looked at and our hands have touched - this we proclaim concerning the Word of life. 2 The life appeared; we have seen it and testify to it, and we proclaim to you the eternal life, which was with the Father and has appeared to us. 3 We proclaim to you what we have seen and heard, so that you also may have fellowship with us. And our fellowship is with the Father and with his Son, Jesus Christ. 4 We write this to make our joy complete.
Light and darkness, sin and forgiveness
5 This is the message we have heard from him and declare to you: God is light; in him there is no darkness at all. 6 If we claim to have fellowship with him and yet walk in the darkness, we lie and do not live out the truth. 7 But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus, his Son, purifies us from all sin.
8 If we claim to be without sin, we deceive ourselves and the truth is not in us. 9 If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness. 10 If we claim we have not sinned, we make him out to be a liar and his word is not in us.
Heavenly Father, remind us today of your incredible love, and help us honour you in every word, every action. Bring us again to the stable, where we may worship Jesus with all our hearts, as he shows us who you really are. Amen.
