Hi everyone,

Welcome to your weekly update on all things Godly and awesome. I still feel slightly fooled into thinking that Summer is starting, but there are certainly signs of new life all around us now. Try, if you can, to take any moments of joy or peace that you get from this time of new growth and flowers, to reflect on how God has renewed you, and is still renewing you through his spirit.

Huge thanks to Gina, Vicky and everyone who contributed to the Children's Society collections this year. We raised over £600 between our churches.

Once again, no Men in Shed this week, but we do have the High littleton Family Church this Sunday afternoon at 4pm if you would like to join us for that.

Also, Meg is our guest speaker in Paulton this Sunday and the service will be followed by our APCM, if you would like to stay and hear about our plans for the church in the coming years.

Our monthly Bible question time 'Dig In' will be on Tuesday 3oth of April at 7,30pm and the Engine Room prayer time will be on Sunday 5th of May at 8pm.

Morning prayer is taking place at 9.30am Wednesday in Paulton and Thursday in High Littleton. It begins with 15 minutes of quiet reflection, followed by Common Worship morning prayer.

The Church of England have updated their Morning Prayer APP.  You can now listen to morning prayer from the app. I would encourage you all to take this up as a daily practice, it is a great way to grow a pattern of prayer and learn the rhythm of responses each day.

You can download the app here:
