We’ve introduced a regular online prayer ministry slot via Zoom at 12 noon every Sunday.
We invited people to join us in marking Lent through subscribing to IJM’s (International Justice Mission) Lent series to help make #SlaveFree normal.
IJM is inviting us to use Lent to make changes in the way we think and act to help make #SlaveFree normal. You can sign-up online and each week you’ll receive a short film with tips on how to shop consciously, info on the issue, inspirational stories of rescue and the inside track on which brands are taking action to stop slavery. You’ll also receive an online booklet as well as regular WhatsApp updates with tips to inspire you along the way.
In addition to this, IJM are asking us to choose to give up one product which is likely to have slavery in its supply chain for the 40 days of Lent. What will you choose? Then if you would like, you can donate the money you would have spent on the products during the 40-days of Lent.
On Thursday evenings starting 18th February, at 9pm – 9.30pm there will be an opportunity to watch and discuss the video together. The Zoom meeting passwords are on our Facebook group or email email@example.com for details.
If you find yourself wanting to have a chat, ask a question, or would love to pray with someone than Chris will be making himself available on Mondays from 12.30pm-1pm. If you would like to take this opportunity to have a coffee with Chris then you can book a slot through Churchsuite calendar.
We have restructured the Latimer Church YouTube channel so that it now has content categorised into three areas: Past live-streams, All-age resources and Sermons.
We welcomed our seafarer friends Lloyd and Lily who are helping us with memory verses that run alongside our sermon series.
We’ve produced a blog to accompany each of our sermons on Colossians and for use within Latimer Church Community groups.
It includes teaching, spiritual practices, prayer prompts and activities for the whole church.
On January 10th we start our term’s focus on the book of Colossians and what it means to be ‘Anchored in Christ amidst an ocean of competing beliefs’.
Here’s the big picture of what’s happening between January to Easter.
