(No Generation Rising this week)
It may be helpful to know that our brilliant techies have added another clever facility to our Sunday morning broadcasts.  While they are being pre-recorded, if you are watching after the event, you can find a particular place in the service really easily by clicking on the bookmarked sections underneath the video screen.  So you can go straight to welcome, or testimony, or worship or any of the other sections.  A reminder too that sub titles are easy to operate by clicking on the cc button at the bottom of the screen.
Sunday 24 January at 7.30pm
We will meet again on Zoom on Sunday evening at 7.30pm.  We encouraged people last week, in the prayer e-mail, to pray for our NHS at this time of unprecedented strain and we will include prayers on Sunday evening this week for our local hospitals. The link is the same as for last week's prayer meeting, but if you need it again or for the first time just reply to this e-mail and we will send it to you.
Memorial Service | Sunday 31 January | 7.30pm
An opportunity to gather on Zoom to remember those who have died during the last year, to say goodbye to loved family members and friends, and to give thanks for their lives.  Daniel will lead this 45 minute service which will include readings, poems, pictures and prayers. There will be an opportunity to light a candle at an appropriate time. Participants will be able to listen and join in silently as Daniel leads us through the service.  Zoom log in details have been sent to those who have already requested them.  If others would like them, please reply to this e-mail and we will send them to you.
Faithboost is back! 
Find it on our YouTube channel on Wednesdays - for the next few weeks we will be looking at Psalm 23.  Family News is back too - on our YouTube channel every Friday.
Church Members' Meeting | Monday 25 January | 7.30pm
Papers for this meeting have now gone out to church members.  Links for accessing the broadcast and the voting form will go out by e-mail tomorrow.  Please contact the church office if you don't receive them.  Thanks.
Stories of God at Work in 2020
Thanks for contributions so far - we need lots more!  As we reflect on an unprecendented year in so many ways, can we encourage you to find and celebrate memories, amongst the difficulties, of the times when God was close and especially evident to you and to those around you.  We'd love to put together an Annual Review of 2020 that celebrates stories of God at work in the lives of individuals and families in our congregations and communities and front line places.  It would also be good to share hopes and dreams for this New Year!  Do send us any photos or thoughts that we might be able to use - thank you.
Just a reminder that we continue to follow all the national and denominational guidance in order to make GBC as Covid secure as possible.  We are thinking carefully about everything we are doing in order to make any changes required to reduce transmission risks as much as possible.  Church is still here and while you can't just 'drop in' we are fully contactable by e-mail or phone. Please leave a message if necessary and we will get back to you.
