In just over four months we have now given out 17 prayer shawls and touched people’s lives with our thoughts and prayers. It continues to lift my spirits when we are gathering for our monthly meeting and it is lovely to see how people are sharing skills and even attempting to learn new skills.  We welcome any new members to our group and donations of double-knitting wool as well as your kind prayers.

The joy of Easter Day commenced with 17 of us partaking of a simple breakfast in the Abbey Hall Lounge. A joyous atmosphere, convivial company, Easter treats and decorations on the tables, all blended together into what felt like a church family gathering to celebrate our Risen Lord. A great way to celebrate an Easter morn!

As a church, we should take more time to sit together, joyfully, be it suppers, lunches or breakfasts. There is no greater celebration than to break bread together in church family fellowship.

SUMMER CONCERT IN AID OF PROSTATE CANCER

Saturday evening 9th June 2018,  at 7pm in Romsey United Reformed Church. 

We are aiming for an enjoyable evening of song and laughter.  Joining us will be the Romsey Ukulele Group (RUG), who are always such fun, and if that wasn’t enough, to add even more contrast we have a Barbershop quartet called Southern Electric who will also take to the stage.   Tickets at the door £8. School aged children free.  There will be a raffle and refreshments.  Everyone welcome – especially if you like a bit of a sing-along.

Nine prayer shawls have now been gifted to people facing significant changes in their lives as a symbol of God’s all-embracing love and compassion. We have been busy producing prayer scarves and shawls and these were dedicated during the Easter morning service. Please do contact Mike or Marie Perrott (or any elder) with the names of people who you think would benefit from receiving a prayer scarf or shawl, they do not need to attend our church to benefit.

If you are interested in getting involved in this ministry come along to one of the prayer shawl meetings in the Abbey Hall Lounge on one of the following dates between 10am and 12noon: 12 May, 16 June and 21 July.

It has been a great delight to see the first batch of about twenty shawls and scarves dedicated during the morning service on 7th January. They are now ready to go to people who are facing significant changes in their lives as a symbol of God’s all-embracing love and compassion. Please do contact Mike or Marie Perrott, or any of the elders with the names of people who would benefit from receiving a prayer scarf or shawl. Please keep this ministry in your thoughts and prayers. As ever, donations of new wool are always welcome.

It has been lovely that so many people have expressed an interest in this ministry. Leaflets are now available on the table in the back of the church.

I invite you to a knitting and praying get-together at Abbey Manse for those who would also like join together in fellowship, starting at 10am and through to about midday (to avoid having to come out after dark), on the following dates 

Saturday, 14 October

Saturday, 18 November

Saturday, 16 December

We will decide at our meetings whether we wish to meet monthly or more frequently.
