Just a quick email with details of tomorrow’s services and other events happening in the next few weeks as well as attaching a mini SCANS from Steve, which I thought deserved to be first on the email this week rather than at the end – thank you Steve.
SUNDAY 26th FEBRUARY
We have a choice of three services tomorrow:
9am HOLY COMMUNION at St Leonard’s, Rockingham
10.30 HOLY COMMUNION at St Columba’s, Corby with ENERGIZE groups for children and young people and a live stream for anyone unable to be in church via this link: https://youtube.com/live/OqHDf3V35_0?feature=share
5pm HEALING SERVICE at St Columba’s – do come along if you or someone you know needs prayer for healing, or simply to join us in praying for those in need.
Please note because of the Healing Service there will be no PRAYER MEETING tomorrow.
ALPHA – will be meeting again this week at 7.30pm
FELLOWSHIP GROUPS Tuesday 28th February at 7.30pm and Wednesday 1st March at 10.30am
Do think of these as a Lent Group and join us even if you have not been before. The evening group is meeting on Tuesday for this week to avoid a clash with PCC.
ST COLUMBA’S PCC
This will meet in church at 7.30pm on Wednesday 1st March.
NEXT SUNDAY 5th MARCH
We have just the one service next week: MORNING WORSHIP at St Columba’s at 10.30am with ENERGIZE (please note the All Age Service next month will be on Mothering Sunday 19th March).
However there is a special evening service at 6pm at Christ the King in Kettering with JOHN COLES (one of the founders of NEW WINE) speaking on the subject “From meeting God to serving God”.
ST COLUMBA’S ANNUAL MEETING Sunday 12th March after the Morning service
We will meet in the Church Hall at about 12 noon for our meeting after which there is a BRING & SHARE LUNCH to which everyone is invited. Please do try and come along to the meeting and stay for lunch.
This meeting is the time when we elect Churchwardens to serve us over the next 12 months, Deanery Synod representatives to serve for three years and one third of our PCC members who also serve for three years, plus one casual vacancy for one year. If you would like to be considered for one of these roles please do ask me for a nomination form (all roles require the person nominated to be proposed and seconded by two people entitled to vote at the meeting).
The revised ELECTORAL ROLL is on display at the back of church, along with the formal notices about the meeting (strictly speaking it is two meetings, one for electing churchwardens and one for the rest of the business).
Any questions please do speak with me.
NAT WHITE’S BAND IN CONCERT
Nat White’s band MID LIFE CRISIS are performing at St Giles church Northampton on Saturday 11th March at 7.30pm. Tickets cost £10 (concessions £7) and details of how to buy them are on the poster. They are raising money for “Baby Basics, Northampton”. If anyone is planning to go and has space to give someone a lift please let me know.
BISHOP’S BIBLE DAY
This is taking place at Northampton High School on Saturday 18th March from 9.30am to 4pm. It is a day for everyone to explore the Bible together, with a focus on the Psalms. The keynote speaker, Revd Dr Isabelle Hamley, will be looking at Psalms 23 and 137, and there are a range of workshops. You can book tickets (there is no charge for the day, which includes a cold lunch, but donations are welcome) and find details of all the workshops here: https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/bishops-bible-day-tickets-503194848337
With best wishes for this coming week,
