St. Bartholomew’s Kirby Muxloe Welcome
Dear friends, At this time, we are in new uncharted times. Never before have we had to shut the Churches to this extent. To isolate ourselves physically from being with friends and family. Archbishop Justin has said that we need to become a different sort of Church at this time. As your local Church, we are making every effort to ensure that we remain in contact with as many as possible, keeping them aware of what we are trying to do. We have created an email newsletter mailing list to keep in touch with people. We have created a short service that we can all take part in on a Sunday. This will be available to join in via here. Longer term, we are hoping to have a special Easter communion service - more later. At present I am spending a lot of time speaking with wedding couples about their forthcoming wedding, with baptism families about having to defer their service until a later date.
We need to all take care of ourselves and to keep an eye on our neighbours. As Christians, we need remember the words of Jesus Christ when he said: Matthew 25:35-40 (NRSV) 35 for I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me, 36 I was naked and you gave me clothing, I was sick and you took care of me, I was in prison and you visited me.' 37 Then the righteous will answer him, 'Lord, when was it that we saw you hungry and gave you food, or thirsty and gave you something to drink? 38 And when was it that we saw you a stranger and welcomed you, or naked and gave you clothing? 39 And when was it that we saw you sick or in prison and visited you?' 40 And the king will answer them, 'Truly I tell you, just as you did it to one of the least of these who are members of my family, you did it to me.'
