Our prayers for them and for you at Orton Primary School
Good morning Mrs Pomfret , I am writing to say that we are praying for you and all of the Year 6 pupils along with the school , who would normally be assembling for a service to celebrate and give thanks for their time at Orton Primary school ,we pray God’s blessing on them and on all of you , for your remarkable care and dedication throughout this time of lockdown.

‘I waited patiently for the Lord. He turned and heard my cry; He lifted me out of the slimy pit, out of the mud and mire. He set my feet on a rock and gave me a firm place to stand’ (Psalm 40v1-2)
It is now twelve weeks since we were able to meet together in church for worship. We miss our fellowship, but the Church is alive and God is still at work. This week’s service is entitled ‘God’s Care’ with a reflection by Douglas Birkbeck, encouraging us to ‘Trust and do not be afraid’; and something new – a picture for you to reflect on! The service also includes a reading from The Sermon on the Mount (Matthew 6 v 25-34), where Jesus tells us, ‘Don’t worry … your Father knows what you need … but first seek His Kingdom’. In Psalm 40 (above), the psalmist first ‘waits patiently’ for the Lord before he is lifted on to the rock.
Our house is named ‘Men-a-vaur’ – Cornish for ‘great rock’. It is the name of an island in the Isles of Scilly – a massive chunk of granite standing on the outer edge of the islands and taking the full force of the weather rolling in from the Atlantic, yet offers care and security to hundreds (if not thousands) of sea birds. This massive rock is split into three, with narrow passages between the three sections – reminding us the Trinity and also of the brokenness at the cross – Jesus separated yet still part of the whole – a real symbol of God’s solid love for us!
Jesus talks about building our house on the rock, the sure foundation. In these times of change, God asks us to ‘wait patiently’ and to ‘be still’. As we do, the Church becomes a symbol of God’s presence, His love and security in this turbulent world – like Men-a-vaur, standing firm against the storm.
The hymn says: ‘Fastened to the rock, which cannot move, grounded firm and deep in the Saviour’s love’ (MP 770).
The journal, ‘A Story to Tell’ (if you didn’t receive one last week, more are on order!) is a chance to reflect on your journey with Jesus, perhaps especially through recent days – listening and reflecting on God’s work in us and His words to us – and then sharing our stories with each other.
We do not yet know when we will be able to gather together again – there is a possibility it may be next month, but for some fellowships it may be longer. For now, we are God’s church, scattered in our communities as witnesses to His love and grace.
Please pray for your church fellowships, remembering those who are on their own, ill or in hospital, bereaved or lonely; and give thanks for answered prayers.
‘Praise God, from whom all blessings flow!’
The peace of the Lord be with you always
Rev Stephen Radford
Kirkby Stephen, Appleby and Tebay Methodist Circuit.

We're absolutely thrilled that Kristy Pattimore has started making a weekly collective worship video for everyone to enjoy. Here's the second week - thanks Kristy!
Jesus had some special friends too – we call them his Disciples. After Jesus was killed on the cross he rose again and met with some of his friends who were so happy to see him. One of his friends, called Thomas, was not there when the others met with Jesus, and Thomas said that he did not believe that Jesus had risen from the dead and that unless he could put his own fingers in the hole in Jesus’ hands he would not accept that it was true. The next time they were all together to talk and pray Jesus joined them and spoke to Thomas and showed him the holes on his hands where he had been nailed to the cross. As soon as Thomas saw Jesus he fell on his knees and said that Jesus was his Master. Jesus told him that he believed because he had seen Jesus but blessed were people who had not seen Jesus but believed in Him anyway.
So just because we cannot see Jesus we know he will always be our friend, just like those friends that we cannot play with, or go to tea with right now - remember Jesus always loves us and wants us to love him too.
Thank God for your friends!
You can find this story in your Bible -
New Testament – John chapter 20. Verse 24-30.
Most of you will know Charlie,
but lots of you will not have met Nina who is Charlie’s special friend,
so she is here to say ‘Hello’ – they hope you are all keeping well and safe.
We're absolutely thrilled that Kristy Pattimore has started making a weekly collective worship video for everyone to enjoy. Here's the first - thanks Kristy!
