Keppel Anglican Newsletter
Message from the Church Leaders
Today we give thanks for the many people who help us behind the scenes. We give thanks for the people who make church happen each week, by contributing to services, assisting with the upkeep of our grounds, and those who help with our buildings and parish administration. It is this unseen work that keeps the parish functioning.
Today we specifically give thanks for the ministry of Seanna: her ability to manage the office efficiently, her concern for people and for her desire for them to know Jesus. In particular we are thankful for her special ministry to the parish during the time of Covid and the many hours spent in the production of our online services and all the material used to support people during this challenging time. We acknowledge the support she received from Bryan, Brienna and Jack as she met the demands of the position.
Today we give thanks for Janet and James who also work in the parish office. We are grateful that they were able to benefit from Seanna’s leadership. We give thanks for their committed and faithful service.
On Friday Seanna served her last day in our office as she takes up a full-time position within the community. We thank God she has been given this opportunity and pray for his continued blessing upon her.
Grace and peace.

For Sunday 8 November, 2020
Twenty-Third Sunday After Pentecost
Watch and be ready, for you do not know on what day your Lord is coming.
Matthew 24:42, 44
Eternal God, you have taught us that the night is far spent and the day is at hand: keep us awake and alert, watching for your kingdom, so that when Christ, the bridegroom, comes
we may go out joyfully to meet him, and with him enter into the marriage feast that you have prepared for all who truly love you; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.
Prayer of the Week
Blessed Lord, you have caused all holy Scriptures to be written for our learning: grant that we may so hear them, read, mark, learn and inwardly digest them, that, by patience and the comfort of your holy word, we may embrace and ever hold fast the blessed hope of everlasting life, which you have given us in our Saviour Jesus Christ. Amen.
