Easter Day, 5th April 2020

You will know by now, that for the time being we aren’t doing the notice sheet as it used to be though we’ll try to keep you updated in emails as much as we can. 

Thanks to everyone who has sent messages complimenting the new way of getting our worship and reflections leaflets to you.  As you know these can be used alongside the Church at Home link on our website:  Click here for Church at Home 

Thanks go out to Ben who pulls this all together for us and the many people who are working behind the scenes to produce these lovely services.   

Resources and Activities for Children

On the same page of our website we have a Resources for Children and Families section with loads of ideas for helping to explore the Easter story with all ages. If you’re looking for something else to entertain children, then we are also doing a virtual Easter Egg and Easter Bonnet competition via our Facebook page (search for St Marys Monkseaton on Facebook)

Below are our Intercessions for this coming week

and we hope that you will pray for all those named at this time.

Your Prayers are requested for:

Martin Cooper

Enid Havard

Edna Davis

Shirley Teasdale

Tina Tompkins

Russell Dawson

Lesley Towers

Please also pray for our Prime Minister Boris Johnson and all those affected by coronavirus.

Rest in Peace

David Bottrill

Sue Hart (Anniversary)

Evelyn Beton (Anniversary)

Brian Stephenson (Anniversary)

As you know our dear friend David Bottrill died last Friday morning, at home. David had been poorly for several weeks and his death was not related to Coronavirus. There will be a service of Committal at Whitley Bay Crematorium but can we remind you that because of coronavirus restrictions only immediate family are permitted to attend. A memorial service will be arranged as soon as we can go back into church.  Our thoughts and prayers are with Pat and her family at this time.
