Parish churches in Ampfield, Chilworth & North Baddesley

On Friday 22nd May 2020
Dear reader

Yesterday was Ascension Day, the day we remember Jesus' Ascension into Heaven. This was followed, for the disciples, by an anxious wait for the promised Advocate (the Holy Spirit) to come at Pentecost. And so, traditionally, the 9 days between Ascension and Pentecost has been a time of prayer and preparation called the Novena. More recently it has been focused on 'Thy Kingdom Come' - a global prayer movement that invites Christians around the world to pray for more people to come to know Jesus.

For the Novena, we are going local (with prayers for the areas in which we live) and global (with the Lord's prayer in a variety of languages and from a range of places). There will be a video on the front page of the benefice website and on the YouTube channel at 10:30am each day (so today's is already there).

We will be live online again on Sunday morning (on the benefice website and on YouTube). The order of service is the same as the last few weeks and is available from the benefice website. As usual, if you have any difficulties, drop us an email at joinin@acnb-church.org and we'll try to help. And don't forget, if there's anyone you want to be included in the intercessions you can email intercessions@acnb-church.org.

It was Ascension Day on Thursday 21st May. There was no Morning Prayer video this week. Instead we joined the Romsey Deanery Ascension Day service at 7pm from Romsey Abbey.

Meanwhile. In other news the seasons roll on. Please send us lots of pictures. We look forward to sharing and seeing what everyone is up to.
Your parish church has not gone away. We are offering daily prayer privately. Please join us, venture deeper into spiritual communion with our Lord, and prayer for the welfare of our communities and those in health and public service.
