Palm Sunday

Home » News » Palm Sunday


It has been a beautiful day. I have tried a bit a 'dry stone walling' be rebuilding the fallen retaining at the front of the Manse. For the first time we have lengthy conversations (from safe distances) with our neighbours. Everyone suddenly has time and need to talk.

Managed to sit still long enough for a blackbird to come and rather insects from the grass around my feet.
Are you enjoying seeing TV shows being presented in new formats?
The day is tinged with saddens as we hear the news of more tragedy and challenge. We must trust in the Lord to see us through.

I enclose:
A service sheet for Palm Sunday prepared by Phil Rice.......
and a real treat... Phil has also recorded the service with piano accompaniment by his wife, Carolyn. We thank them for their time.

Earlier today I popped into Burton Latimer to check everything is ok. This keeps Methodist Insurance happy. The church was very peaceful. The 'rainbow' window seems to have a particular poignancy at this moment. The rainbow covenant of hope after the flooding of the earth 'Never again' declares God. This is our plea.

We pray for the Messy Church that should have met at Burton Latimer tomorrow. We are in good contact with the regulars and rejoice the Messy Church team have shared some activities for families to try at home.

We think too of those who had prepared to lead Acts 29 District Youth event this day. I hope that this can be rescheduled for later this year.

Every blessing, sleep well,


Rev. Andrew Farrington l Superintendent Minister
Kettering & Corby Circuit 23/19 :
Burton Latimer, Central — Kettering, Cornerstone — Corby, Cottingham, Desborough — St Giles LEP, Rothwell | The Methodist Church

Moses in bulrushes

Dear friends,Thought for the Day.I am so pleased that todays 'Women of the Bible' considers Shiprah & Puah. As Margret Tuffin correctly notes, they are often the over looked heroines of the Old testament. Without their fortitude, ingenuity, bravery and audacity one of the most significant characters of the bible would not have survived beyond childbirth. Thank you Margret for you...
