Raunds Methodist Church
Welcome to our community at Raunds - a diverse mixture of folk
some of whom have lived here all their lives and are truly 'locals' and others who have now settled here from various places in the British Isles and from around the world making a community working together to love the Lord and getting to know Him better as we work study and pray together
Whether you are well advanced in your walk with the Lord or have only recently begun or are seeking we welcome you to join us so that we may journey and grow in our faith together
DURING THE CORONAVIRUS PANDEMIC WE WILL ENDEAVOUR TO KEEP IN TOUCH WITH CHURCH MEMBERS THROUGH OUR PASTORAL NETWORK
On the Pages under 'Coronavirus' (the Page which opens if you 'click' on the tab at the top far right of this page) you will find any relevant Notices and a short act of Worship for personal use, as we are unable to meet as a fellowship in the Chapel - 'click' on the bottom line of the page which opens under 'Coronavirus' - this will be replaced each week by a new Worship Act for your use
Thought for the Day
Working from home has it’s advantages - no rush hour traffic, flexible hours, the ability to combine chores and work life.
However, what I realised this week as I had my only outing in the car to do my essential food shop was that actually, an unexpected disadvantage is not having “protected” time to listen. Anyone who has heard me talk as a worship leader on a Sunday morning will know that I can be a bit of a last minute person when it comes to prayers / talks at church. This is in total contrast to work and family where on the whole I like things organised; lists, spreadsheets, diaries and calendars.
For me I need to have “protected” space to listen and to hear what it is that God wants me to do or say. This often happens in the car when it’s just me and the radio or CD.
So this week driving back from doing my shop this song came on and caught me off guard to the subtle but comforting message of hope, trust and love.
I hope you find the same…..
