At long last, after weeks of delay and frustration, the latest caused by the spread of the coronavirus infection, our builders have given us notice that they intend to start the building works on Monday, 8th June. Obviously they cannot guarantee that there will not be delays either within their workforce or externally with suppliers and subcontractors, and if these happen then we will deal with them as best we can. However, they have done their best to confirm orders and set up deliveries and have worked up a programme.Continue reading “Building Work on Thomas Field Hall to Start”
Followers of Christ may feel inadequate at times in holding up to the task of making new disciples. Like a piece of paper asked to hold up the Bible, the Word of God.Continue reading “Prayer Station at Home: A Piece of Paper”

With apologies for the short notice, and for yet another news post from Little Gaddesden Church, you may like to know that a Eucharist for St Augustine will be broadcast from Great Gaddesden Church today at 10:00am on the Services page. A recording will then be available for the rest of the day.
Service for Wednesday 27th May 2020
|10.00 am||Services page||Berkhamsted Team Midweek Eucharist||(JR)|
The intention is that there will be further midweek services online in the weeks to come.
This broadcast will use a different system from that used on Sunday. We’re aware that some people had technical difficulties then, and we’re sorry about that. We think that we’ve identified the reasons, and although the causes of the problems that arose were beyond our control we believe that today’s arrangement should avoid them.
More details in our regular Weekly Services and Notices news post on Friday.
Despite restrictions, a ‘can do’ approach is beneficial to well-being. Let your virtual hand guide your prayers to ‘touch’ others this week.Continue reading “Prayer Station at Home: The Virtual Hand”

As you may know, each year at the Annual Parochial Church Meeting (APCM) the Annual Report and Financial Statements are made available in printed form, together with a copy of the Treasurer’s detailed report showing how most of the figures in the accounts are calculated. The Treasurer also verbally presents a simplified report during the meeting.
This year due to the COVID-19 restrictions the meeting scheduled for the 19th April 2020 did not take place. However the documents are now available on the Governance Papers page of the website by clicking on the link below:
Please note we do not intend to print copies of the Annual Report this year in order to keep the church costs to a minimum at this difficult time.
Ascension Day reminds us of when Jesus returned to God the Father in heaven. Before he left the earth, Jesus said that God promised to send his Holy Spirit. Luke chapter 24 verse 49. Here’s how to make a promise knot in plaited string to remind you of God’s promise to send you his Holy Spirit.Continue reading “Prayer Station at Home: A Promise Knot”
