After the 10am service tomorrow, James is going to do a 10 minute presentation about the cross on the hill, as it is the 100th anniversary of the cutting of the cross tomorrow. You can leave after the service, or if you want to hear the presentation just stay in the meeting. There will be a 5 minute break after the service to get a cup of coffee etc. We will aim to start the presentation at 10.45am.


Here are 4 notices, which appear in more detail at the end of the Sunday Service:


Thy Kingdom Come - Global period of prayer from Ascension to Pentecost

Specifically, we again invite each and every Christian across the country to pray that God’s Spirit might work in the lives of 5 friends who have not responded with their ‘Yes ’to God’s call.

There are lots of ideas and resources on the TKC website  www.thykingdomcome.global . 

You can light up the world by ‘pledging to pray’.


Dates for the diary

Join us for Evening Prayer on Zoom, each evening at 9pm until Saturday 30th May.


Friday Prayers 10am every week


The next Quiz is on Friday 29th May at 7.30pm (earlier than usual because of Evening Prayer at 9pm)


Money, money, money

Another reminder about giving. Firstly, thank you for the generosity that you show towards the church and to those who responded to my last notice about finances. As you are aware the closing of the church building, has seen our income reduce. 

If you are able to do so, please would you consider continuing your regular giving by setting up a Standing Order (via Terry) or make a donation online through the secure “virtual collection” on our website www.shorehamchurchkent.org. It’s easy to use.

Cash and cheques can continue to come to myself, Jasper or Terry.


If you are a UK taxpayer, please do complete the Gift Aid details – for every £1 you give, we receive another 25p for free.

May the Lord bless you for your generosity.



Next Sunday is Pentecost, when we remember the coming of the Holy Spirit and the birth of the church …. so I would like to invite you to make something for Pentecost … a flame or a dove (some outlines are attached to this email) … a birthday cake for the church … or whatever else you’d like to do … then either drop it into the church porch, if we could use it in a display, or hang it up in a window at home and take a photo and send it to me revdrdi@outlook.com and we will include it in the service next week.


Finally ... don't forget to update Zoom by 30th May (you should be prompted to do this after using Zoom) ... and we will try (once again) to record the service tomorrow ... so if you don't want to be seen, join without video ... you can also change the name that appears on your little picture when you join the meeting.


Best wishes,
