INTERCESSIONS
Worldwide Anglican Church:
  Pray for Archbishop Justin Welby and for the people of the Anglican Church of Papua New Guinea
This Diocese:  Pray for Bishop Christopher; Archdeacon Peter; Area Dean Amanda; our benefice Vicars Alison & Barry; the parishes of The Good Shepherd, Lake & St Paul, Shanklin
World:  We pray for everyone in the world suffering, in whatever way, from the pandemic
For all schools, colleges and university students and staff most of them in lockdown and with the pandemic
Island:  For all business owners and staff under threat, and for the many now seeking employment
Sick:  Anne, David, Molly
Recently Died:  Lynn New

We pray for all who suffer as a result of natural disasters, acts of terrorism, violence or armed conflict; for our armed forces and their families, and all who work in the emergency services.

Thought for the Week
Steadfast Endurance   By his own example and encouragement, Jesus inspires us to continue faithful even through the difficult and rough passages of life: in fact, it is often through such perseverance that we are enabled to mature spiritually, and grow to fulfil our potential.

All Souls  Unfortunately, due to present restrictions, there will not be an All Souls service this year. However, the churches will be open and welcoming on All Souls Day, 1st November. Please do come in and pray, and light a candle for your loved one.

Confirmation  Congratulations to Christie Morley who was confirmed by Bishop Christopher at Newport Minster on Sunday 18th October. It was a socially distanced service and a very happy occasion.

~~~~~~~

In light of the new guidelines and looking towards a winter of caution and restrictions I would like to let you know the following.
The Haven Benefice will just be organising the Sunday rota of services and the Wednesday communions. No other social activities, groups or events will be restarted at this time. This will be reviewed in December.
The St Mary's Market will continue to operate with tighter controls on social distancing and volunteer bubbles and there are still opportunities to be part of that volunteer team should you wish.
Rotas for intercessions and Readers are in place in some churches and they will remain for the time being. I had thought to allow small choirs but in the light of heightened risk this will not commence before December.
This is not a lockdown, just a slowing of the opening and it is what we expected. Please stay safe and well.
God Bless
Ali
