It’s week three of the lockdown, but our spirits are unchained in Christ! “It is for freedom that Christ has set us free!” (Galatians 5:1)
Please click here to watch again our third ForeCast collective service of worship and prayer, livestreamed on Sunday from 10:25am.
Our ForeCast livestream was led by Abbie. We enjoyed the closing instalment of our series on the book of Amos, with a reflection given by Mike Strange, the Counties Evangelist for Somerset and chair of Somerset SACRE, the County Council committee responsible for Religious Education and Collective Worship. Mike and Su are valued friends of Forefront and it was a joy to maintain our fellowship in this way. We experimented with live prayers from watchers on the chat, in addition to Rhona’s thoughts from Chard Reservoir. And we had some thoughts from the 180 youth on how to thrive in lockdown.
Don’t forget, if you have testimonies of how God has used you, spoken to you or comforted you during these challenging times, let us know in time for next week’s service. Send them to Nigel, who will be our next service leader.
Abbie read from the song Praise You In This Storm, by the worship group Casting Crowns. You can see that song here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MgpaULjZOl8
And she recommended this, as a source of hope and worship: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RY4CW5pte98
Colin Little has kindly suggested three worship songs which we can all listen to, and join in with, before or after the ForeCast. Thanks Colin!
