CCW News: Our Weekly Christ Church Woodford News Update
22nd February 2021
Yesterday at Church: 11am Zoom Service (Sunday 21st February 2021):
[Malcolm Evan’s sermon attached to this email]
As we gathered together, once again by Zoom, we turned to Matthew 6:19-34. We thought about Jesus’ call for His followers to look beyond our material possessions, and the life that we have now, and to look to our eternal home in Heaven – and to use what God has given to us in this life now to invest in our Heavenly Home – the home where our heart is.
If you would like help getting onto our Zoom Service, please just let me know. And, don’t forget, if Zoom doesn’t work for you, we now have an Order of Service for a ‘Service at Home’ which can be used in a household or as an individual – this comes out on a Saturday evening by email.
Next week’s passage: Continuing through The Sermon on the Mount - Matthew 7:1-6

Urgent Appeal due to essential building work
If you have passed our building recently, you’ll have seen some construction work taking place. This has been some major work being carried out on our drains and the lytchgate. As you can imagine, this work (like the work on our Tower) has significant financial implications. Due to this, Graham Meare is leading us in an Urgent Appeal. Graham’s prepared an explanatory booklet (which is attached to this email, is on our website, and will be going out in our magazine). Our thanks to Graham as he seeks to guide us through this challenge.
Use of our building during the rising infection rate
Just a reminder that our Church building is sadly, currently closed. Closing our building is never an easy decision, and it will be reviewed, in the light of current guidance, legislation and circumstances at the end of each month. (Having reviewed the situation for February, the decision remains to keep the building closed.)
