Matthew 17:1-9


  • Can you name all the ways in
    which God presented Himself in
    this story?
  • Discuss a time in your life when
    you didn’t want something to
  • How do you think this experience
    impacted the disciples?
  • Have you ever heard God’s voice
    or had an experience of hearing
    God in another way?


On A4 paper, draw an outline of
Jesus on the mountain. Colour it in
with felt-tipped pens in bright
colours. Now turn the paper over and
brush the back lightly with olive oil.
Let it dry. When you hold it up to a
window, the light will shine through
in a very powerful way.


You may know already, but if not,
find out what Moses and Elijah did in
the Bible. Why do you think they
appeared next to Jesus?


Draw an outline of a cross (with
enough space to write in it). Think of
as many descriptions of Jesus was
you can, writing them on the cross in
different colours – for example, light,
friend, shepherd, king, defender,
rock, Son of God, truth and so on.
Use some of the words to help you
create one-line prayers to praise

Thank you to all whom gave so generoulsy to the harvest collection at St. John’s. The food has now been donated to the Food Bank for distribution to all those who need it.



We are holding a service to remember loved ones who have passed away on Sunday 1st November. We are inviting those whom have lost someone is the last 12 months to the 9am service where those names will be read out and a candle can be lit. We are also asking those who attend our 10.30am Zoom service to have a candle, and a match, to light during the service as an act of remembrance.


Prayer is the lifeblood of the church. It connects us with God and enables us to have a living, dynamic relationship with him. We pray as individual Christians and whenever we meet together, on Sundays and during the week. Before lockdown, we had midweek prayers in the side chapel, which were attended by a few faithful people but were not accessible to those who weren’t able to join us in person.

From 6th October, we will be offering the opportunity for members of the church family to join us for prayer online during the week. Initially, we will be meeting on Zoom at 12.30 on  Tuesdays and on Facebook at 09.00 on Thursdays. A link to the Tuesday meeting will be given on the weekly notice sheet and the Thursday meeting will be livestreamed on the UPC Facebook page. After a month or so, we will review this pattern to see what works best and may well revise it in the light of experience.

Some Harvest Prayer Prompts will be sent out in this weekly notice sheet and paper copies are available on request. We hope that these will
provide a focus for the church family as we unite in prayer to our heavenly Father.

Here are the login details for the daily prayer meeting starting this Tuesday at 12:30pm

The Annual Parochial Church Meeting (APCM) will be held on Sunday 18th October at 11.30, following the 10.30 service.
