Dear Worshippers, Friends and Patrons of St. Clement’s,

Join us for worship this Sunday..

Sunday 29th October at 11.00 – Sung Eucharist for International Sunday
I invite you to come to the church wearing something Traditional. The Gospel Reading is Matthew 24:30-35 where Jesus tells us about His second coming and He will send out His angels to gather his elect from the four winds, whilst the supporting readings are Nehemiah 9:5b-8 where Ezra says that God is the Lord of all creation and Galatians 3:26-29 where Paul writes that in Jesus Christ we are all children of God through faith. During the service, we will have a special Czech hymn and will say Lord’s prayer in our mother tongue as we will celebrate our Christian Unity in Diversity.

Followed by Bring n Share- International Lunch in the hall on the third floor of Klimentska 18. Make your favourite cuisine and bring enough for your family + 1 extra. This is an opportunity to invite your friends who do not normally come to church. Make sure you offer to come with someone.

Tuesday 31st October – 18.00 to 20:00 in the small meeting room on the first floor of Klimentska 18
Join for an evening of discussion and discovery led by David Hellam on Happy Families? What message does a divided church give to the world. This will be the fifth of the seven Tuesdays we will be looking at how we can develop a Biblical perspective on what it means to be a church in the 21st century. As previously mentioned, if the outside door of Klimentska 18 is locked, please press the bell marked Kancelář and you will be buzzed in.

Other important things…

My sermon from last Sunday is now available to listen to on the church website. If you have missed it or would like to listen to it again please click on the link. The sermon is about Moses’ petition to God to go with the Israelites; for it is only because of His presence that the Israelites shall be distinct from every people on the face of the Earth. It focuses on how Holy God and sinful man cannot unite except through Jesus.

Remembrance Poppies: Thanks to Diane Tvaroha and Luca, these will be available at the back of the Church this coming Sunday and the following Sunday, in return for a donation to the poppy appeal.

Celebratory Prayer for birthdays and wedding anniversaries or any other such occasion is now a part of our regular service. You are invited to send to me the details of your birthday or any special occasion for which you would like us to pray, by email.

Yours in His Service,
Nathanial

8th October 2017 – Harvest Festival – David Hellam

Sermon (Click Link to Listen)

Readings: Psalm 19

6th October 2017

Dear St. Clement`s Family;

For those of you who don`t already know; our Interim Chaplain Nathanial`s father died, suddenly in India on the afternoon of 22nd September, of a cerebral haemorrhage. Nathanial was of course devastated and wanted to be with his birth family; which is where he is now. Not before attending to all the foreseeable details he felt responsible for, prior to his departure. Thank you Nathanial, our thoughts and prayers are with you, and your family in India, and we look forward to looking after you when you return on Monday.

One of the things Nathanial couldn`t do was a WEEKLY for this week. So you`ve got me instead; trying to gather together all the great stuff that`s happening here in Prague & Brno. So here goes:-

Sunday 8th October at 11.00 `HARVEST FESTIVAL`
This will be a service of the Word, with David Hellam leading, preaching, and no doubt trying to get our crop of children to do all the wonderful things they devised last week – properly – and at the right time! It`s always fun – but also allows us to express our gratitude for all the good things we enjoy in life. This will be followed immediately by:-

A Bring and Share`Harvest Lunch`in Klimentska 18, 3rd floor Hall
What better way to celebrate our coming back together after the Summer? Bring a dish or a bottle and enjoy the company of everybody else and what they have brought to the table too.

`Welcome Adam!` son of Philip and Lenka Read, who was baptised by Nathanial in Brno last Sunday. We in Prague were pretty pleased; but from the reports we heard of the reception Adam got from our Brno congregation, his rellies and fans, and his parents friends, we were definitely overshadowed. (See below*)

Saturday 7th October – Bear Walk to Beroun
Angela Hitchen, our environmental officer; is organizing a trip to Beroun tomorrow; leaving by train from Smichov rail station at 10.25am for a 3km ramble through the picturesque market town, visiting the famous `Bear Park`, a pub for lunch, and returning to Prague for mid afternoon. Please contact Angela (busanga2000@yahoo.co.uk) for more information.

Tuesday 10th October – Seminar: `What on Earth is the Church for?`-3; 18.30 – 20:00 small meeting room, first floor, Klimentska 18
Join for an evening of discussion and discovery led by David Hellam on Mustard seeds, Wheat and Weeds – What do Jesus’ parables say about us?. This is the third of the seven Tuesdays that we will be looking at how we can develop a Biblical perspective on what it means to be a church in the 21st century. If the outside door of Klimentska 18 is locked, please press the bell marked `Kancelář `and you will be buzzed in. .
