The Readings: Nehemiah 8:1-6,8-12 & Matthew 24:30-35, 

 Matthew 24:30-35

Then will appear the sign of the Son of Man in heaven. And then all the peoples of the earthwill mournwhen they see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of heaven,with power and great glory.And he will send his angels with a loud trumpet call,and they will gather his elect from the four winds, from one end of the heavens to the other.“Now learn this lesson from the fig tree: As soon as its twigs get tender and its leaves come out, you know that summer is near.Even so, when you see all these things, you know that itis near, right at the door.Truly I tell you, this generation will certainly not pass away until all these things have happened.Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will never pass away.

West Purbeck Benefice News

We have heard from the Archdeacon that the 1st November 2020 is the likely date that we will welcome the Lulworths into the West Purbeck Benefice. This is not a definite date, but it will happen very soon. With so much change and unsettled times around us it is good to celebrate a coming together of brothers and sisters in Christ, so we aim to celebrate this at our Café Church service on 1st November. Please pray for the members and leadership of each of the seven churches in our Benefice Holy Rood Wool, Holy Trinity West Lulworth, St. Andrews East Lulworth, St. Christophers Winfrith Newburgh, St. John the Baptist Bere Regis, St. Laurence Affpuddle, and St. Nicholas East Chaldon that we may come together with like minds to fulfil our mission to spread the gospel in our local communities.Rev Sandra, Rev Jenny & Canon Keith
