Dear friends,

The 15th March was the last Sunday when we were able to worship at our usual place of worship. This Sunday had an interesting day for this Circuit. Caroline Barratt was leading her 'trial service' at Rothwell and Rev. Helen Cameron, Chair of Northampton Methodist District, led worship at Central. Phil Rice used power point for the first time for the Café style worship at Rothwell. Joan Gray and others brought a service prepared by Rev. Jean Holyhead to Cornerstone and Cottingham enjoyed a Local Arrangement. Rev Hannah and I shared in teaching aspects of the Passover meal to the children (and adults) at St Giles Church. Already our initial aim to hand morsels of food around were curtailed by the emerging Covid-19 restrictions. I digress.
This was the 3rd Sunday in Lent and the lectionary theme for the day was Jesus and his conversation with the Samaritan Women at the well. You can find this is John's Gospel, Chapter 4, commencing verse 1 to verse 26. It is a remarkably detailed account. I do recommend that you continue to read on to verse 42.

Ruth Fitch has continued to think through her experience of worship on the 15th and offers her continuing thoughts. These are attached. I hope you find them helpful, We offer our thanks and best wishes to Ruth.

Blessings, Andrew
