Messages from the Rector

Today is Palm Sunday. Life is like a roller coaster. None of us know what is going to happen next. It’s good to journey together. The first Palm Sunday celebrated Jesus’ triumphant entry into Jerusalem. You can read the account at Matthew 2:1-11.

Sorry about the wind noise. I simply want to encourage us all to keep going even when it is difficult. The reading set for evening prayer today is Matthew 20:17-end. You might want to read it before you watch the video. Take care. John.

Today is 5th Sunday of Lent. Being unable to Gather in church is extremely difficult. I will be praying this morning at 10am, and I invite you to pray at that time also. Together we can pray for our community in Upper Coquetdale, for those who make important decisions in our country and beyond. We can continue to pray for all who work in the NHS or care for others in some way. We can pray for those who are ill and also pray for all who are bereaved. This is a time when many are anxious. My latest video mentions the readings set for today that many will reflect upon. Ezekiel 37:1-14, Romans 8:6-11 and John 11:1-45. Take care, stay home and God bless you all.

This video comes at a time when Rothbury is remembering Tom Sutton who died a year ago yesterday. Tom's Funeral was the first I conducted as Rector of this parish. The whole community was touched by his death and our thoughts and prayers go out to his family. The Eulogy to Sheila Burn, whose funeral was on Tuesday is now on the parish website. I hope you are keeping well. Please take care. Here is my latest video message.

This page has been dormant for some time. I am now trying to bring it back as the Rector of Upper Coquetdale as another means of being in touch. This video was my first attempt. I plan to put stuff here that will be useful – please let me know if there is other content you would like to see. Take care. John Sinclair. Rector.
