Sunday 21st June Youtube worship

I hope you have survived all the rain and are looking forward to the heat this week!  Here are the links for today, which I hope you enjoy and are able to use to engage with God.  As Robert has taken a few days off I, Sarah, am leading it.  We have a few children and different adults appearing and our archdeacon, Adrian is speaking on loving others as we come out of lockdown (EPIC and Shaggy Dog are also based on this theme).  I have tried out 3 different ways of doing the worship songs on the video so please sing very loudly over the 1st one as it became more out of tune as I uploaded it!!!

Robert’s Youtube video for 2nd June

It says in the video, but I am taking probably a week or so’s break from
doing these. I myself need to time to pray into the next thoughts and
developments here, and feel in my spirit I shouldn’t try and just ‘think
of something to say’!

I know quite a lot of you view these, so I hope you don’t miss them too
much! – I’ll let you know when I resume.
