Revd Richard is on study leave for the months of May and June. During this time he will be writing songs for use in our churches and hopefully beyond. I’m sure you will join me in praying for him – for inspiration, creativity, refreshment and a real sense of God’s presence.
We seem to be coming out of the difficult Covid pandemic and we are thankful to God not just for the vaccine, but for the NHS and all those who have been looking out for us. In all this God has been with us. God was faithful before Covid. God was faithful during Covid and God will continue to be faithful beyond Covid.
Psalms 119:90 Your faithfulness endures to all generations; you have established the earth, and it stands fast.
Deuteronomy 7:9 Know therefore that the LORD your God is God, the faithful God who keeps covenant and steadfast love with those who love him and keep his commandments, to a thousand generations.
I hope that you are all feeling more confident now that the vaccine programme is well underway. You continue to be in our prayers and we look forward to the day when we can all sing God’s praise together in person as a church family.
We are continuing to hold services in two churches per Sunday until the Autumn. These are at 10.30am, with Elton moving to 9.30am in July. On Pentecost Sunday there will be services at Stilton, Folksworth and Haddon. We are also planning some extra events during Sunday afternoons in June and July, and we will let you know about these when they are finalised.
With every blessing,

The Stilton Group of Churches is committed to safeguarding all children and vulnerable adults in our parishes. Please click on the Safeguarding tab for more information, including our Safeguarding Policy and contact details if you have a concern.
The Safeguarding Team at the Diocese of Ely have been running a duty phone for over a year now. It was set up so people, with a safeguarding concern, could speak to a Safeguarding Adviser and receiver advice and guidance as to what action may need to be taken. The Safeguarding Duty Phone number is 01353 654747.
A dedicated helpline operated independently from the church by the NSPCC is available on 0800 802020. Anyone can use the helpline to provide information or to raise concerns regarding abuse within a Church of England context; whether they are reporting issues relating to children, adults or seeking to report poor safeguarding practice.
