‘Nothing Will Be Able To Separate Us’

A warm welcome to the November edition of St. David’s News, containing updates, news, articles and information from your Parish Church.

Paul writes to the Church in Rome and tells them: I am convinced that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor rulers, nor things present, nor things to come, nor powers, nor height, nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord. Romans 8:38-39

That is an incredible statement he makes and during November at St. David’s I am beginning to see the many ways we are engaging with Jesus Christ and helping others to engage and come to know him.

On Sunday November 4th at our 10am service we will be bringing our voluntary gifts packed into a shoebox for children who are in need around the world. Our generous Christmas gifts will be delivered to them to show the generosity and love of Christ from a complete stranger. The mission of Operation Christmas Child is to show God's love in a tangible way to children in need around the world, and together with the local church worldwide, to share the good news of Jesus Christ. For nothing, not even poverty and need, can “separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord”.

On Saturday November 10th we will be opening up St. David’s from 10am to 2pm to pray and reflect on the anniversary of the end of World War I when King George V called the Nation and the Commonwealth to pray for peace and 100 days later war ended. Drop in to our prayer morning for as long or as short a time as you wish. Prayer stations will be available to help us through praying for peace. Not even war and death and suffering can “separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord”.

On Sunday November 11th we will be able to remind ourselves of the futility of conflict, remember those who have died and suffered in them and recommit ourselves to the peace of Christ. Our services will be, at 10am, an All Age with Holy Communion, an act of remembrance and a two minute silence. There will also be a service of remembrance at 6pm with a brass band.

Then on Saturday November the 24th we will be gathering together at our November Market and inviting our community to again share time with us and experience the fellowship and love of Christ at St. David’s and of course start to prepare for Christmas where we celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ.

There are many other opportunities for us to come together in November in our normal church activities, in schools, in our care home, in home groups, at After School Church, at Café Church, on a Sunday morning, through our Mission and Social Action because we learn that “nothing can separate us from the love of God in Jesus Christ”.
