Covid update

At the last meeting of our Covid Response group we felt that we were getting the balance about right in making our churches as safe and welcoming as we could. We felt it was perhaps time to start moving towards including wine at communion once again. Too soon, perhaps, for full use of the chalice, but now safe to dip the bread in the wine (intinct it) at distribution. So from Easter Sunday that is what we will be doing. Your comments on this gentle move forward would be welcome.     Hugh.

 

Confirmation 2022.

If anyone would like to be confirmed this year we are hoping to get preparation groups together aiming to be ready for confirmation  by September.  We will be running an adult and a junior preparation  group so please let Hugh know if you are interested.  Many thanks.

Open House at St. John’s

You are invited to come along for refreshments and a chat at St. John’s church on every Wednesday  afternoon between 2 pm and  4pm. All welcome.

Parish Away Day 11/06/22

Thank you to everyone who contributed to the evaluation sheets in Church over the past few weeks. The Parish Away day to carry this process further and plan for the future is now set for Saturday 11th June at Christ the King Battyeford (we're not going that far away). We will be gathering with refreshments from 9:30 for a 10 am start, lunch will be provided and we will  finish by 2:30 pm. Br Marc Voase of the Community of the Resurrection will be with us as a speaker. 

This day is open to anyone to come and find out more and contribute.  We aim to end the day with a clear Parish vision for the next 5 years. Signing up sheets are now available in church with a dietary requirements section.

I hope as many as possible will be a part of this important work.
