PROGRAMME OF EVENTS

On Sunday 6th September, we began the celebration of the "Season of Creation" with a joint "Liturgy of Creation" in Mount St Gardens with our friends and neighbours, the Roman Catholic Church of Farm St. The Season lasts until the Feast of St Francis of Assisi on 4th October 2020. It is a time to reflect and pray about our stewardship of God's creation and consider how we as a Church address the challenge of climate change. On Sunday 13th September, the theme of our Service will be "Cross & Creation", as we celebrate the Feast of the Holy Cross and Fr Dominic Robinson, SJ from Farm St will preach. The Season of Creation will also occupy some of our online services and reflections that Fr Richard and Gary Eaborn will give. Our Parish School will also participate in a special Assembly which will involve the planting of rosemary and lavendar, as symbols of remembrance of those lost to COVID-19
 
 
New Chapel Teaching Series: "Rebuilding the Church" from Sunday 20th September
When St Francis of Assisi heard God saying to him, while praying in the derelict church of San Damiano, "Rebuild my Church", he at first understood this literally to be a rebuilding in stone and mortar. Later he realised that it was a call that was far more wide-reaching, for the moral and spiritual renewal of the Church.
After "lockdown" and still in the time of this pandemic, much of our church life has been deconstructed. Like St Francis, we need, in this space, to not only contemplate how we "rebuild" what was, but how we renew our Christian life, not least our mission.
Our new series has the objective to equip members of the congregation to reflect, pray and organise themselves more intentionally, to address the challenges in our particular context at the Chapel of “rebuilding the Church” in the wake of the pandemic.
The series will involve weekly input starting on Sunday 20th September 2020, from the Sunday Sermon, followed on Mondays by a more focused reflection by a member of the Chapel's Ministry Team, and then culminating in a video-conference with members of the congregation on Thursday evenings. Please register your interest to participate: info@grosvenorchapel.org.uk

Chapel Lockdown Diary 

For sometime I have asked you for any Lockdown ideas or initiatives. Lis Hasted has suggested that we produce a “Lockdown Diary”. We would like to invite you to write a paragraph offering some vignette of how lockdown life has been for you, or a reflection on something you have seen or experienced during this period. If you could include a photograph that would be helpful. We intend to put this together to share with the Chapel community, to increase an awareness of others and encourage creativity.

  

Make your Prayer Requests

I would encourage you to send in any prayer requests. It does not need to be focused just on the sick and the departed. It could be on any concern. Let us know if you want the matter prayed for publicly or not. Please send your request to me richard.fermer@grosvenorchapel.org.uk 

Chapel Garden & Pastoral Care
