You can also book a place over the phone by calling 0115 9524020 on Thursday, November 5 between 10am and 12 noon.

A church spokesman said: ” At the moment churches are allowed to continue with services even when in Tier 3. This is obviously providing that we follow the rules of wearing a mask, social distancing and not mixing.

“We have arranged our chairs so that when seated, people are socially distanced, which is why we limit attendance numbers for each service and why booking a place is essential.”

The church also announced that due to the Covid 19 emergency, it will not be leading an Act of Remembrance at the Gedling War Memorial on November 8, 2020.

  1. The War Memorial is where the Act of Remembrance on Armistice Day is held; anything else is nothing more than the Church attempting to drum up business. I accept and appreciate the efforts made by the Church, but war and Remembrance are not religious festivals; although you might rightly argue and observe that religion has been at the heart of most (but not all) armed conflict since the Crusades.

  2. There were two united monarchies of the twelve tribes. First the Saul dynasty was established upon popular demand. And then later the Davidic dynasty was decided by the LORD.

    Saul’s name is same spelling as Sheol or grave in Hebrew, (H7586). The KJV has this Samuel’s prophesy on King’s Saul’s reign on his day of anointing. “Then shalt thou go on forward from thence, and thou shalt come to the plain of Tabor, and there shall meet thee three men going up to God to Bethel, one carrying three kids, and another carrying three loaves of bread, and another carrying a bottle of wine: And they will salute thee, and give thee two loaves of bread; which thou shalt receive of their hands. ” (1 Samuel 10)

    So in the same day of anointing Saul saw everything came true. But on his day of death about forty years later it fulfilled the rest of his story. That day he visited the witch of Eindor at night. The hamlet of Eindor is in the plain (vicinity) of Mount Tabor. (It is in Google map) After Samuel left, Saul fell on the ground for he had no food. The witch baked him a bread. Oh by the way, the word witch has the same spelling as a wineskin/waterskin* in Hebrew (H178). And when he died on the same day (yom is the same day), three of his kids also died with him. All the offerings to the house all accounted for.

    Saul’s dynasty was short life. And it was replaced by the Davidic dynasty which is eternal because of Jesus. Only New Covenant saves. Don’t look at the perfect storm or each other, look unto Jesus.
