St Thomas’ Church  - keeping in touch

Building the Kingdom.................................. 

 

 

As we go deeper into autumn, work in the garden means tidying up and dealing with the falling leaves. The 2 photos show the antirrinums which are still going strong in my garden. At the end of this coming week, we turn the clocks back, signifying going into winter time and, although it may mean shorter daylight hours, it is good to reflect on the changing seasons, how they mirror our walk with God – and know, He is with us in every season.

At the time of writing children are either on half-term holiday from school or about to go into that half-term break. The children’s group on Wednesday afternoon re-starts on 10th November

– please chat to Matt (Jackson) for more information.

The Collect for Simon and Jude, Apostles (28th October):

Almighty God, who built your Church upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, with Jesus Christ himself as the chief cornerstone: so join us together in unity of spirit by their doctrine, that we may be made a holy temple acceptable to you; through Jesus Christ your Son our Lord, who is alive and reigns with you, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. AMEN.
