A letter from Shannon

"Do not let your hearts be troubled

and do not be afraid"

says Jesus

Friends, Ben Rhydding Methodist Church has suspended our worship services, meetings, studies, fellowship gatherings and all other activities until further notice.

 

May we not be afraid during these fearful times

May we support each other, through prayer, regular phone calls and other practical helpful ways.

Please check on your neighbours!

As we do, may we discover Jesus is right with us, offering us his hope and peace.

Ben Rhydding Methodist Church is praying for you.

Lent

Is this a fast, to keep

The larder clean?

And clean

From fat of veal and sheep?

Is it to quit the dish

Of flesh, yet still

To fill

The platter high with fish?

Is it to fast an hour,

Or ragg'd to go

Or show

A downcast look and sour?

No; 'tis a fast to dole

Thy sheaf of wheat

And meat,

Unto the hungry soul.
