Welcome to the 10th in our “Lights, camera, action- hope is rising!” series. Missed any in this series? You can catch up here. You are also invited to join us after the service at 12 noon for our coffee and chat over Zoom. The link details can be found in the messages section. We’d love to see you there.
Here’s the summary and suggested reading plan for this week:
Children and Young People:
This week’s virtual Sunday School looks at the Parable of the lamp to remind us to keep shining the light for Jesus.You can find the story in your own bibles in Mark chapter 4 verses 21-25. Virtual Sunday School is one year old, so there’s a chance to look back on some of the highlights you may have missed!

Over the next 2 Sundays, we will show you videos with stories from Tearfund. This week, it’s Abeer’s story (not her real name). She fled Isis, along with her 4 children, and now lives in a refugee camp in Northen Iraq. Watch her story here:
