ANNUAL PAROCHIAL CHURCH MEETING
at St Mary’s Church, Headley & via Zoom
7.00 pm TUESDAY 6th OCTOBER 2020
Members of the Electoral Roll of the parish, and interested residents of both villages, are invited to attend this important annual event. Members of the church Electoral Roll are entitled to vote in the election of lay members to the Parochial Church Council and may raise any question of parochial or general church interest through the PCC Secretary prior to the meeting.
The meeting will start at 7.00 pm at St Mary’s but will also be available via Zoom. As with current services, numbers will be limited in church due to social distancing requirements so please book your place through the PCC Secretary as soon as you can. Priority will be given to those wishing to attend who don’t have access to the internet. For those who would rather join via Zoom, please let the PCC Secretary know in advance to ensure you receive the appropriate link in advance of the meeting.
This is an ideal opportunity hear about what is going on in our churches, and how we continue to build our ministry and mission through worship and friendship both within the local community and further afield.
Harry, Christopher and our Churchwardens and the members of the PCC hope that we can welcome as many of you as possible, whether in person or virtually, to this important meeting.

THIS WEEK'S SERVICES
Sunday 20th September 2020
Harry’s mini broadcast here:
Reading Matthew 21. 23-32
23 Jesus entered the temple courts, and, while he was teaching, the chief priests and the elders of the people came to him. ‘By what authority are you doing these things?’ they asked. ‘And who gave you this authority?’
24 Jesus replied, ‘I will also ask you one question. If you answer me, I will tell you by what authority I am doing these things. 25 John’s baptism – where did it come from? Was it from heaven, or of human origin?’
They discussed it among themselves and said, ‘If we say, “From heaven”, he will ask, “Then why didn’t you believe him?” 26 But if we say, “Of human origin”– we are afraid of the people, for they all hold that John was a prophet.’
27 So they answered Jesus, ‘We don’t know.’ Then he said, ‘Neither will I tell you by what authority I am doing these things. 28 ‘What do you think? There was a man who had two sons. He went to the first and said, “Son, go and work today in the vineyard.” 29 ‘“I will not,” he answered, but later he changed his mind and went.
30 ‘Then the father went to the other son and said the same thing. He answered, “I will, sir,” but he did not go.
31 ‘Which of the two did what his father wanted?’ ‘The first,’ they answered.
Jesus said to them, ‘Truly I tell you, the tax collectors and the prostitutes are entering the kingdom of God ahead of you. 32 For John came to you to show you the way of righteousness, and you did not believe him, but the tax collectors and the prostitutes did. And even after you saw this, you did not repent and believe him.
Collect for 16th Sunday after Trinity
O Lord, we beseech you mercifully to hear the prayers
of your people who call upon you;

one God, now and for ever.
