Easter Sunday On Line Service – 4th April 2021

Dear all,

Re: Necton Benefice Online Service for Easter Day 2021

Please find below the link for this morning’s online service for Easter Day. Please note that this is premiered for 10.30am to coincide with our Easter Day service at All Saints Necton, so that in theory we are all celebrating Easter at the same time. The sermon is based on John 20.1-18 which speaks of ‘The Empty Tomb’ and the resurrection of Jesus Christ.

https://youtu.be/C9fR2ZWqxZw

There is a Benefice service at 10.30 today at At Saints, Necton.

Happy Easter

Sunday Morning On Line Service – 21st March 2021

Good Morning,

Please find below the link for this morning’s online service which considers John 12.20-33 when ‘some Greeks ask to see Jesus’.

https://youtu.be/Iql5EFhUtNA

This service means that we have been producing these online services for one whole year – who would have thought it?

Many thanks to all who took part in this service or in others throughout the year. Please share the link with your family and friends.

May I invite you to consider not only ‘liking’ the service on Youtube, but to share your thoughts and reflections on the service, sermon and hymns and see if we can get something of a conversation going that might encourage us all in our faith and fellowship.

If you would like to support the ministry of the Parish Church of St Andrew’s, Holme Hale, you can do so by texting stan88 and the amount of your gift to 70070. All donations are much appreciated.  Thank you.

God bless and keep safe.

Stephen
