Virtual Services: Sunday 12th July

Pastor David Fielding
David Sherwood

Dear Castlefields Friends,

Here is the usual Sunday ‘CNews’  with details of the hymns, Bible Readings & message titles for Sunday.
It also contains a handy map which will be useful for following the Bible Reading & Message in the morning.

There is also the ‘Junior Learning Together‘ sheet for the children to complete.

This week we are trialling video in the morning — so be prepared to see David as well as hear him!

As with all first time attempts at anything new, there are a number of glitches that will need ironing out for the future but we gradually want to make our services resemble the usual pattern that we were all used to before ‘lock down’.

We continue to explore opportunities to meet together physically rather than virtually, so please pray for us as we meet to try and advance these arrangements this week.

Evening services will remain on the website in audio version for the present time.

Every blessing.

David, Peter, Richard, Martin & Lee

Virtual Services: Sunday 5th July

Pastor David Fielding
Peter Leyshon-Jones

Dear Castlefields Friends,

In our usual way, we are attaching the following items for tomorrow’s services:

  • CNews with hymns, Bible Readings & Message titles.
  • ‘Junior Learning Together’ sheet for the morning service.
  • Activity sheet for younger children for the evening service.
  • Activity sheet for older children for the evening service.

The Government are allowing churches re-open this Sunday but the process is complex and, in our case made more challenging by the size of our building. It will be very difficult to comply with mandatory hygiene & ‘self distancing’ requirements in our premises.

Please pray specifically for a way forward for us to adapt or use a suitable building for our morning services.

Next week, we hope to use video to advance our connection with you but for a time, other services will be audio based and our mid week prayer meetings will remain on Zoom by invitation.

We trust the Lord to provide for all our needs as His care for His church is infinite and perfect.

Every blessing.

David, Peter, Richard, Martin & Lee

Peter Fry

Dear Castlefields Friends,

Here is ‘CNews’ No 42 with the hymns, Bible readings & message titles.

As usual there is also a Junior Learning Together sheet for the children to work through.

As the ‘lock down’ gradually eases we will need great prayer & patience as we work through the necessary steps to steer our Sunday activities back to something like “normal”! In the meantime, our on line services continue in audio format, so please pray with us that they will be greatly blessed to many far & wide, as well as our usual congregation

We pray God’s richest blessing on the ministry of the Word for young and old alike.

Every blessing,

David, Peter, Richard, Martin & Lee

Pastor David Fielding

Dear Castlefields Friends,

Here is the usual ‘CNews’ for this Sunday with hymns, Bible Readings & sermon titles. There are a number of additional things to mention as well.

Our morning preacher is different this week. Peter Leyshon-Jones will be leading & preaching for us. For a change, David will be leading and preaching in the evening.

Peter has included a hymn that might not be very familiar as it was only written just as the ‘lock down’ was beginning, earlier this year! We included it in a ‘CNews’ Special edition on 16th April. A copy of that edition is also attached & you will find a link on there to enable you to listen to the tune in readiness for Sunday morning. It is an excellent hymn, based on the Heidelberg Catechism, and wonderfully fitting for the days in which we live.

There are three children’s activity sheets this Sunday:- one for younger children for the morning service, based on Psalm 1- one for older children based on the morning sermon in Ecclesiastes Chapter 3.  
– a colouring sheet based on the verses for the evening sermon in Numbers 6.

We pray God’s richest blessing on the ministry of the Word for young and old alike.

With love in Christ.

David, Peter, Richard, Martin & Lee

Richard Carvell

Dear Castlefields Friends,

Here are the details of our hymns, Bible Readings and message titles for this Sunday.
As usual there is also attached a sheet that can be used with younger children to help go through the Scripture passage.

The passage that we are looking at in the morning service is quite long and therefore we have included some brief notes after the morning hymns, that help us to follow the progression of the narrative.

In this world of turmoil we thank God for His unchanging Word and what we learn of His unchanging gospel purposes.

Singing God’s praise is good for us – today; seek out good “psalms & hymns & spiritual songs” to sing, as well as those chosen for our two services.
We pray for His blessing on His people, all across the world on His Day!

In Christ.

Dear Castlefields Friends,

Here is the latest ‘CNews’ No35 with details of our services on Sunday.

This includes a handy map showing locations mentioned in the Bible passage which we will be expounding & applying in the morning service.

As usual there is also a “Junior Learning Together” activity sheet for children to complete based on the passage in Acts.

With the world in turmoil how we love to spend Sunday focusing on the word & work of God. Even though we cannot meet physically, lets make the most of meeting virtually.

Every blessing,

David, Peter, Richard, Martin & Lee

Pastor David Fielding

Dear Castlefields Friends,

Here are the usual details for today’s services.

A ‘Junior Learning Together’ activity sheet for the children is attached also — a giant crossword this time!

Please do not be put off by the length of the recording in the morning! The service last no longer than usual but there is a short additional section which has been added at the end to help you make the most of the mini series of “Surprising Conversions” preached over the last three weeks.

Please continue to listen at the end of the service for this additional part — or listen after a break.

Every blessing.

David

Attached are the hymns, readings & sermon titles for tomorrow & also the “Junior Learning Together” Notes for those with young families.

Also attached this week, is a document that prints as an A4 landscape folder entitled: “Joining the Dots on Preaching”.

David writes: “It is a companion to Acts Chapter 8  and goes through the whole chapter looking at the words in the original language that speak of how the gospel is communicated in various different ways – I hope that it is of help”. 

Every blessing for the Lord’s Day,

David, Peter, Richard, Martin & Lee
