Rev Jane Cassidy from the Tendring Methodist Circuit led our morning service.
Jane spoke to the children about her “Magic Carpet”. A shop find which had several slogans on including “Be Kind”, “Tell the Truth”, “Sing”, etc which can all be used to remind us how to behave as Christians.
Later Jane spoke to the adults, relating to the reading from Luke about Jesus healing a crippled woman on the Sabbath and the reaction he got. Jane encouraged us to think about ourselves and our church and how we can learn from this story and find our own joy in the Lord.
